Describes behavioural studies of the window opening habits of families in 123 houses to show strong seasonal pattern. During winter, window opening is closely related to moisture levels in the external air. In summer it is most closely linked to outside temperature. Larger families have more open windows. Re-examines ventilation criteria to suggest 3 seasons : deep winter with minimum ventilation for body odour removal ; spring/autumn for controlling moisture and summer for cooling.
