What do you prefer? open windows+fresh air OR windows closed+air conditioning ?

I love to keep my windows. ofcourse the days when it gets too hot i close them and turn on the air conditioner full blast. but my husband prefers them closed (no he doesn't has allergies). he likes artificial cooling or heating. also he hates opening the windows at night. Even with the bug screens closed, he swears they crawl in from the gaps.
since we live in a townhouse, with other houses being so close together, i often notice that alot of our neighbors have their air conditioning running, even if it's really nice out. like today i'm sitting on our deck. it's sunny with a perfect cool breeze. but i can hear 4-5 houses AC compressor units running
What do you like?

  • Well, since we don't have AC, I'll go with windows open and fresh air/breezes.

  • Considering where I live, the windows have to be shut and the ac on. As soon as it cools off, I love keeping the windows open.

  • I'd like to be able to open more than the bathroom window just to air the house out but that isn't going to happen. *sigh* Window ACs in the remaining windows.

  • If posible. Open windows. But in the summer that is only posible early in the morning. Most of the time in is closed window/AC on.

  • A/C, open windows isn't really an option here.

  • Open windows.  I only put the a/c on when the humidity is high.

  • Pen windows but when it is hot or humid A/C is on.

  • Windows are open here when the temp is below 80. I literally just shut them now and turned on the ac. At night we keep with them open and fans in them when the temp is below 70. My parents never allowed windows open when I was a kid. They still don't, so I really enjoy the fresh air.

  • Open windows but mine are closed for much of the year simply because my husband has allergies and pollen affects him. He has enough health issues that we do not need to add to his burden.

  • Open windows as much as possible. But, I'm not opposed to AC and will turn it on if it's too uncomfortable or DS's asthma is causing problems.
