Once in a while I find kitchen or bathroom windows slightly open when A/C or heat has been cranking.
Only once have I found almost of all the windows in the home cracked. And once I found three wide open with the A/C still on - but I do believe that one was an honest mistake.
I am looking for a system that will notify me that window is open (after a certain time period…maybe 20 minutes??) with heat/A/C running, and it will automically shut it off. I can then notify the guests why it is shutting off.
I consider myself to be lucky but I don’t want to wait until some smoker rents for the week - opens every single window during the dead of winter, and ends up doing more damage than just an outrageious electric bill.
How many of you do leave windows cracked? I had a roommate who always did this and she was raised with having a little bit of fresh air come in during the winter. But I am thinking there isn’t a system to detect a slightly open window versus having the whole thing wide open??
