There’s nothing worse than having to keep your windows and doors closed in the height of the Australian summer because of the threat of insect invasion. The trouble is that once they’re in, mosquitoes, flies, and wasps can prove very difficult to remove, plus they’re seriously annoying right! The good news is that if you have fly screens installed on your property you don’t have this problem. Aside from keeping insects at bay, there are many other advantages to fly screens that you mightn’t immediately associate. Let’s take a closer look.
Saves you money
Believe it or not, fly screens can actually save you money. If you think about it for a while, being able to ventilate your home during the hot summer months means that you won’t have to crank up the air conditioning to such a degree, because the temperature is more regulated
Keeps you healthier
It’s true that natural sunlight keeps you healthy. Not only does it contain much needed vitamin D, sunlight also has other benefits such as protecting against an over active immune system, helping with problems of insomnia and even depression. So by blocking it out, you’re simply depriving yourself of all it’s natural goodness.
Keeps your home healthier
By being able to ventilate your home it helps to eradicate any dampness that can occur during the cooler winter months. As you may be aware exposure to damp and mouldy environments can also be hazardous to your health and can cause a whole host of issues such as coughing, eye irritation, skin irritation and even breathing problems. Mould especially, needs warm dark places to thrive, so by shutting your doors and windows during the summer months, that’s the sort of environment you may just be creating.
Contrary to popular belief, properly installed fly screens can even add monetary value to your home. Nowadays fly screens can be made to blend in with your home in order to create the perfect aesthetic look and something that looks great and is functional too has to be a selling point.
So there you have it – Yes fly screens help to keep insects at bay but they also achieve much more than that. They save you money, add value, and help to keep both you and your property healthy. In fact, knowing what you know now – you’d be mad not to have them!
