We were discussing this at work recently. A few people never had the windows open at night because they were afraid of something flying in (even with screens) or because they just preferred air conditioning. Others loved sleeping with the windows open.

So how about you? Do you sleep with the windows open at night ?

Before when the air was cool...yes. Now, that it is hotter than heck...no. ;-)

Yup - winter and summer.

No, because my window is very close to a low-slanting portion of the roof and I'm terrified of someone climbing up and in at night. :shuffle:

wheeze, wheeze, wheeze. In other words, no :P

When the weather is cool enough, I love sleeping with the windows open, but we definitely have screens to keep the bugs out.

Closed, only in summer I open Žem but just a bit

Wish I could. But it's first floor and a large low window. Afraid of waking up with my throat cut.

I have central air, but only need (or want) it sporadically. (like this past week) I'd much prefer to just open the window on nights that the air is cool and fresh.

Absolutely! There's nothing more refreshing than wide open windows after a day in a closed-in environment.

I open them when outside temps are between 50 and 80. I hate stale air.

When it gets real warm, though, I use a swamp cooler so usually only have the bedroom window open a few inches to get the cool air circulating through.

Until I had bars installed in my window, when I moved a few years ago, no. Even though my new neighborhood is fairly pleasant, I was too nervous, after growing up in a time when NYC was being cleaned up by Giuliani (which isn't even as bad as compared to the 70s). Of course now, I will do so in hot summer days for some air circulation.

Since we do not have the budget for A/C this year! Our windows are open all day and night. I sometimes will leave the back bedroom window open when its cold out but not during the night. Makes the furnace run to much which costs to much $$$.

Yes! That's the nicest.

No, I don't really appreciate the "fresh" air or loud neighbors with my allergies. Not to mention our alarm system won't let us bypass windows.
