In the fall is your house often cooler than the outside temperature?

It is 72 outside and I feel a chill inside where it is 67. Thinking about using a window fan to bring warm air in.

No, but I don't see why you couldn't. I do the reverse almost all summer.

I have a fan in my bathroom top part of window all year long. I use it to suck the air out, and it works, it takes the air from the other windows and pulls it thru.
I also like it after I take a shower to get all the steam out, and it prevents mildew.

i am also fortunate the my bathroom is in the front og the building so i have a regular size full size widow....its frosted though.


Even when the rest of the apartment has the a/c on, I keep the bathroom door closed, I do not like and air conditioned bathroom, no matter how hot or humid it is, i never let the a/c in the bathroom.

try doing what you say, it cant hurt.

I have a full house fan mounted in the ceiling and I use it in the summer when day time temps reach over 100 degrees (Calif desert). I turn it on very early in the morning when it's cool outside and lower the inside temp by as much as ten degrees, then it takes all day to heat the inside back so A/C isn't necessary until late afternoon.
In the fall I use it to suck in the warm outside air and warm up the inside so I won't need to use any heat source until usually mid December.
It moves a massive amount of air compared to a window fan, so not sure to what degree your smaller fan would work.

Yes I do. I live in Texas. I also leave my windows and doors open weather permitting. I prefer FRESH air.
I know you're thinking, the doors are open? I live in the country and everyone has a gun or more. Circumstances vary.

Only if you don't have any fall allergy's. Why not simply turn on the heater.

Are you leaving your windows open at night? Otherwise, how are you cooling your house below the ambient temperature outside?

No, the windows are closed, but of course it cools into the 40s - 50s during the night. The daytime solar heating does not recover enough heat to exceed outside daytime temperatures.
