Exploring The Benefits Of Fly Screens

retractable flyscreenBefore we know it summer will be here and with that comes an influx of insects. To try and keep our homes cooler and more comfortable we’d love to be able to swing open the windows and doors to let the fresh air in, but unfortunately this also encourages insects to invade the privacy of our homes. Insects are a high nuisance factor but more importantly they can also carry disease, placing you and your family at risk. Fortunately the solution really is as easy as it is cost effective. Window insect screens and fly doors allow the air to circulate but block out all types of pests. Here at Down Under Insect Screens and Security we’ve fitted top quality insect screens to thousands of Australian homes and we can supply them to fit all types of openings. We’ve got fixed screens and sliding screens for casement and hopper windows as well as retractable screens and concertina screens for

sliding, hinged and French doors plus many more besides.

Let’s take a look at some of benefits of insect screens.

Lets the fresh air in

Summer is long and hot in Brisbane and as the temperature rises our houses feel hot and stuffy. Air conditioning and fans help to cool the inside but add to your electricity bill and often the air seems stale and recirculated. Flinging open the doors and windows is the obvious answer but without the protection of an insect screen your home would soon be full of insects and bugs and would also quickly collect dust and other debris.


Keeps insects out

Opening doors and windows may be a great idea to let the air circulate but it’s also an open invitation for all manner of flies and other insects to gather in your home. The buzz of flies is really irritating and once they’re inside they can be difficult to get rid of, and will actively seek out any food source which they may potentially contaminate. The fine mesh of insect screens for your doors and windows, keeps all insects out but lets the fresh air in.


What with soaring electricity costs and more concerns about the environment, fly doors and insect screens offer the perfect solution. It’s plain daft to run an expensive air-con unit when free fresh air is just a door or window away. Fresh air is good for your health and your wallet and insect screens are good for the environment since they don’t contribute to Australia’s carbon footprint in the way that air-conditioning does. In fact they offer the same results without cost to the environment. Thanks to our extensive range of stylish windows, doors, and insect screens you no longer need to sacrifice comfort, pest control, or affordability.
