    Do any of you guys leave your bedroom windows open in the winter? I like to have mine open pretty much all the time as I feel a bit claustrophobic otherwise and I like the outside noise anyone else?

    Always! I have to have my room really cool because that's what's most relaxing for me.

    I have the window open for a bit during the winter days. I like having fresh air in the house, and people can sometimes get carried away with central heating.

    Only in the morning to let air circulate in the bedroom and maybe during the day but not before or during my sleep 🙈

    I love it, but had to stop because of all the spiders and stuff I always have a fan on, but it isn't the same. I love my room to be really cool all year round

    In my last house which me and my husband rented together, we'd have the bedroom window open during the day to air the room out, but closed at night for warmth and to block noise from the street. We moved in with relatives recently while we write up our PhDs. Here the room is really tiny and the family like to have the heating full blast all the time :dry: So I tend to have it open a crack all the time, to keep the air fresh and avoid being toasted alive. I sometimes have to close it because of annoying students partying in neighbouring houses. I really hope I've gotten a job and a new place to live before summer, because I really can't deal with noise.
