Windows are the primary source of air flow and ventilation in homes. They provide fresh air while driving out odors and smoke. They circulate air, dissipating heat and moisture, while cooling the air on hot days. Exhaust fans and central air systems can ventilate a room. Opening windows to the outdoors provides more direct and natural ventilation.

Improving Window Ventilation

WMGB Home Improvement, the premier glass block supplier in the area, offers tips on improving window ventilation.

Welcome the Air Inside

The simplest and most obvious way to improve indoor air circulation is to open doors and windows. By this simple act, you can create a cross flow that improves ventilation in the entire house. Use doors, windows, vents and other openings to let fresh air in and stale air out. The size and placement of these openings can guide air into and through your home.

Wherever you need cooling, make it a point to open windows on upper levels to let warm air escape. Design open plan areas, or place high vents or other openings between rooms to maximize airflow.

Use Window Placement

As it is with most aspects of the house, design and proper placement are crucial factors. Windows are of no exception here. Use double-hung and sliding windows on rooms that need ventilation. The kitchen should have operating windows to let fresh air in, especially when you’re cooking. This will help you avoid getting rooms stuffy with stale air.


Enjoy a free flow of fresh air inside your home by using cross-ventilation. This means letting breezes or wind to enter one side of your home and exit on the other side. This will “refresh” the air inside your home. Place window openings on opposite sides of your home and in line with prevailing winds.
