- The most important thing for humans is to feel safe and comfortable in their place. We spend about 90% of our time indoors: at home, at school or at work and breathe on average 22,000 times during the day. Our screens allow us to leave the frames open, having a more direct contact with the environment, allowing the natural ventilation of our space while also taking care of the annoying insects.
- Natural ventilation is the most basic physical technique for removing heat from buildings during the hot months. Through this, natural cooling is achieved, which contributes to the recycling of air and the removal of heat from the inside of the building to the external environment. At the same time, harmful gases (CO₂, CO), unpleasant substances (odors, smoke) and dangerous pollutants that building materialscan emit can be removed. Just think that the air inside a building can be up to 5 times more polluted than outside air.
- Let us not forget the importance of light. The sun acts as a natural antidepressant.There is nothing better for our mood than to open the windows and let the light into our homes while keeping the humidity of the space at an acceptable level.
- According to measurements, energy records and home simulations in Greece, savings of large amounts of electricity and a reduction of 75% to 100% of the refrigerant load occur due to ventilation. These results highlight thermal comfort in the living quarters and the possible substitution of air conditioning systems.
So the answer to the question "why screen? " is: environmental protection, human health and energy & money saving.
