    Do you keep your house closed up when it's rainy and humid outside or do you let the humid air in?

    My husband doesn't mind the humidity and always opens the entire house up. I detest the humidity and would rather leave the house closed with fans and or the air conditioner going to dry things out. How about you?

    I have whole house AC, but rarely use it because I enjoy the fresh air. If it's really humid, I turn on the AC until it cools off. Most days, I open the windows and turn on the ceiling fans.

    It is always humid here in Brazil, more so in January-May. We don't have A/C, we just open the windows. This seems to keep the musty smell away although we get a fine covering of sand/salt on surfaces if the wind is strong.

    I guess it depends on the season. In the summer when it gets really hot right after a rain I will use the AC or fans.  Any other season though and I love the smell of fresh rain and the sound of it falling and I'll open the windows.  I don't mind humidity unless it's humid and 100 degrees - then that "wet blanket" feel is bothersome, otherwise I prefer natural smile

    Generally, we close the house and run fans and 1 room A/C unit when it's hot. On humid days, it gets stuffy pretty fast, so we often just open up midday and retreat to the "cool room" w/ the door closed.
