    Below is text copied from my FB feed as I wish to get this question out to as many people as possible.

    Answers on a postcard please.

    Can someone explain a woman's thought processes to me please as I'm at a complete loss? Due to the heat today I kept all the windows closed to keep the heat out and the house cool. Wifey comes home at 2 o'clock and proceeds to start opening windows so I tell her all she's doing is letting the heat in. She replies she needs to open them to let a breeze through. I say "Yes a 30 degree breeze". Sure enough the house is red hot within an hour. This happens every day when it's hot outside. What makes the above bizarre is, when we're abroad in our hotel room with the air-con on and I go out onto the balcony she says "make sure you shut the door, I don't want all that heat coming in". I genuinely can't work her out.

    On a hot day when we are in the car Bev will lower the windows, everytime I tell her “the air con is on full” her reply “well I’m helping it”

    At the last company I worked at I tried to explain to the company secretary that by opening the windows while the aircon was in full flow she was effectively airconditioning the whole world.
    She never got it either....

    I disagree.

    As I type it is 24c in my lounge and 19c outside. It is rare for the indoor temperature to be higher indoors than it is outdoors in summer as we are very 'windows open'. Any strong direct sunshine coming through a closed window generates tremendous heat inside - with the windows closed there is nowhere for this to go.

    Another consideration is the cooling effect of moving air on the skin - it assists with the evaporation of moisture which is why so many people,get sunburn without realising it on a very sunny windy day.
    Unless you have air con installed...........On balance I agree with your wife.:couch:

    I also agree with her when she tells you to close the external door in an air conditioned environment on holiday.


    The one I never understood is my lovely daughter in law having the underfloor heating on at full chat in her apartmemt with the balcony doors wide open.

    I agree with both of you, on a hot day I keep the windows and curtains closed to keep the heat out, and in the evening open the windows to let out any heat that has built up during the day :rolleyes:

    I once had a confession - "I don't know what I want"
    Can't remember which "crisis" brought it on.
