After purchasing a home and spending a few days in it, you learn the small ins and outs of the space. Regina spoke about this last week with her new home and likewise, we're learning all sorts of things about our own space. The one thing that really still has us puzzled is: How in the heck do we get air inside these windows?!

We have huge windows and the few that open are very precious to us. The bottom portion cranks open and although we've turned on the attic fan and placed fans in the windows to help suck extra air in — we still aren't getting adequate air flow.

We've tried to buck up and put on our brave faces, but sadly, they sweat off in just under 5 minutes. We've followed all the tips we've talked about previously when it comes to keeping cool without the air conditioner, but all we really want is a small breeze.

Do you have a suggestion for us (aside from replacing them all together)? Share your window knowledge in the comments below as we're ready to try anything, no matter how silly it is!
