    Do you sleep with your window open or closed?

    I'm curious about this. I have to sleep with mine open because I breath better and feel fresher but I know the house loses heat this way.

    Which do you prefer, open or closed and why?

    I would prefer to sleep with it open but I live in Ontario Canada and it is really cold at this time of year and it would cause the heating bill to go up too much.

    I would love to have my windows open, but having moved into a big city like FortWorth, you just can't. You have too many people that go around just looking for an open window in which to gain acces to your home for what ever reason.
    Currently, I do know that in a city about 10 miles from me, they have had a series of break-ins where women were raped. You can understand my not wanting to invite trouble by keeping my windows open, but I do love to have a fresh breeze blowing through the house. Even at night.

    Well in summer time I always sleep with open window because of the fresh air. Dreams are more sweetier then air is fresh smile)

    While it would be nice to sleep with open windows, I'm too worried about someone trying to break in, especially if I forgot to close them. Windows are always closed and locked, as well as doors.

    It is often very cold where I live so I am required to keep my window tightly shut. Plus I wouldn't want the neighbors to hear my wife during our alone time wink

    Thanks for your responses; it seems that the majority of you would like to be able to keep your windows open but feel that heating and breaking in issues prevent you. I keep a very small window open that can't be climbed through and I use small fan heaters because they're cheaper. I wear woollen clothes and use woollen bedding so I don't need to have the heaters on so much. Perhaps there are ways around it given some thought? The breaking in issue I wouldn't know how to solve if you only have large windows.
