Broken screens can affect the circulation, can cause a draft or even allow dust particles to penetrate your house.

The best part about window screens is that it keeps the bugs and insects out even though the windows are wide open. Screens are well constructed with a mesh woven in a grid pattern, with small enough spaces to let the air pass but not the pests. Keeping the pests out would be ineffective if the screens are broken 

     3. Lighting Control 

There are many types of window screens. There are different levels of light control like choosing a screen the reflects less lighting on the living room for you to watch your tv with no glare from the sun or choosing a totally dark screen for your room, you can also opt for screens that let in more light In the kitchen.
