When you have Ventilation Windows, you never need to air your home manually (by opening the windows) because the windows continually add fresh air through thermostatically controlled vents. If more airing is needed, no problem! You can open the windows as often as you wish.
Some people may worry that a house with large windows may be too cold in the winter and overheated in the summer. This is not a problem in this particular house. In the summer, the steel roof absorbs much of the solar heat. In the winter when the sun is lower and beams directly into the house, the owners may find it necessary to air out more often to avoid overheating due to the fact that their home is so well insulated.
That is why they chuckle when we ask them ‘Is it easy for you to keep warm in the winter?’.
On the coldest day outdoors since the couple moved into their home, they recorded a temperature of 26 °C indoors! Even though they do air their home, heat is stored in the roof, walls and floors, so there is no chance of their freezing during the long dark winter months.
