When you buy a single-family home, you may not have difficulty with getting fresh air because you will have windows on every side of the house. Another thing that will help to bring in air is the front and back door that will give you additional airflow from two different sides.

But if you are interested in buying a condo, you cannot expect to get fresh air so easily. You will want to pay close attention to the features of condos to buy one that provides a lot of fresh air.

Screen Door

While looking at some condos, you will find units without screen doors alongside the entry door. This means that you will not want to open the front door to bring in fresh air. An easy solution is to prioritize condos with screen doors that allow you to keep the front door area locked. You can open the front door and keep the screen closed, which will let a lot of air into the unit.

If you are not able to find a unit that you like with a screen door, you should at least look around the condo communities that you are interested in. In some cases, you will find that having a screen door is allowed by the homeowners association and you just need to put one in.


Another important detail to analyze when searching for a condo with ample fresh air is the windows. When you get a condo with large windows in the living room, kitchen, and bedrooms, you can feel confident about feeling the fresh air from anywhere inside the unit. Also, you should prioritize large windows over small ones because this will lead to even better airflow inside.

Upper Floor

Looking for condos on the upper floors is ideal because you will find it easier to get the wind blowing through your home. This is a little more challenging with ground-floor units because there may be obstacles that stop the wind in its path. But a unit on the second or third floor will have fewer things in the way of the door and windows, which will lead to improved airflow.


When you pick a unit on an upper floor, you may be able to get a balcony. This may provide you with a large sliding glass door that you can open up to let in more air than any window. You can even install a screen door to prevent debris and bugs from being able to get inside.

Finding a condo with all these windows will make it easy to get fresh air at any time.
