Are operable windows an unnecessary extravagance in a today's green houses?
Just wondering if in today's climate controlled and mechanically ventilated houses if having windows that open defeat the purpose of meticulous consideration to air sealing and humidity control.
Are they strictly for luxury now? Ease of cleaning? Is there still a need to "air out" your house?
P.S. I do understand the need for a small number of egress windows for safety and building code requirements.
