I feel the cold terribly, so usually close doors and windows when it gets really cold.

I like the fresh air however live on quite a busy street and it is also noisy if I keep the front windows or door open -apart from the cold.

I will leave the back door open for a while in winter to let some air in.

During the day, yes. Otherwise the house gets stuffy.
Yes. I hate it when the house is stuffy.

I am anal about fresh air coming into the villa everyday for awhile but then after awhile I shut it up most of the time in Winter, at present only the laundry window is open a bit. In Summer in the early morning I open up to let some f sir in and then it has to be the air con if it is hot to close up again

A resounding YES!!! But I am extremely fortunate as I live in Tropical North Queensland where it is never really truly freezing cold!
I have to air out my bedroom of a morning, so I open the window wide, and leave for a few hrs.

I make sure the lounge room is shut off from any unwanted cold air.

If a sunny day I do all rooms or if the house just needs a good clean out with fresh air.

Even if it is a little cool, our homes must have fresh air.
Not really. Our house is old and fairly draughty, so there's always air movement throughout the house. I open the bathroom window during a shower and sometimes the little window in the bedroom for an air out but not for long!

No, I don't hahaha I value my extremities, and I've heard that frostbite is unpleasant! We had snow swirling around in the yard the other day. It was too small to hit the ground, but it was definitely there.
Yes, to let the fresh air in. If I am not at home all day, I will open it at night for some time, even if it's cold. The smell of a closed room bothers me !

open al the time
Love the fresh air circulating, but now it's getting chilly in the evening, I close the wooden doors', but windows' stay open, all the time!
Can't stand a stuffy house smell!
As ALL have security grilles, I can do this!
Yes, all year round, raining or not. However, when there is a gale blowing, windows get closed the constant banging of blinds drives me nuts!
Yes I do - love fresh air coming into the house. Having said that, living in Queensland it doesn't get too cold except when the sun goes down in winter and that's when the windows are closed!
My windows are open 24/7. I have floor to ceiling windows and shutters which allows me to have air come between each slat so I can adjust how much air circulates all the time. Even in Winter I have air coming in but in the evenings I do close to about halfway as I still like the room somewhat cool.
I love the fresh air in my home. I do get cold but enjoy rugging up. I don't like feeling locked in so keeping the window open allows me to enjoy inside and out.
. I didn't mind when we were in a tropical climate with a nice temperate breeze but I hate it down south because it seems to cause a real chill in the bedroom.

You know I really do have a fresh air addiction. Even if it is only for an hour I do like to have fresh air blow through the house at least once a day. Even when it is really brisk. I think it makes me appreciate the warmth in my house even more when I shut those doors and windows. It also feels fresher and has moved on that stale air.
The laundry, kitchen, bathroom & en-suite windows, for some fresh air. These are open, even if it is raining. Isn’t it lovely to listen g to the rain on the roof, when your going to sleep?
Yes as we like fresh air circulating, they are shut completly if we have a strong cool wind blowing..
Yes all the time
I do keep my windows open all the year round.
I only close them if the rain is coming inside.
I much prefer to have fresh air circulating around the house, even in small amounts
