How cold is it where you live? Up here in Michigan, anytime it gets
up to 40 in the wintertime we're apt to open the windows for a while
and let the house air out. Maybe for just an hour or two, maybe for
half a day--depends on the wind speed.
Doesn't happen very often, granted, but at least once a month
we get a warm spell like that. Then DH says, "Let's blow the
farts out of the house!"
Central Texas, gets pretty cold (for us anyway) perhaps several times a
winter. I'd average is about 40 for low, high fifties for high. Gets
colder though - below freezing at least a couple times most years. Also
get warm occasionally mid to high seventies; when that happens, it is
enough to open the house for a little bit.
The normal approach to this problem is to eliminate the odor sources
are not necessary to sustain life. You obviously can't eliminate food,
you could get the livestock out of the house.
Although I don't believe fan hoods work very well, some people feel they
help. Apparently, some have charcoal filters or something.
Mine works well. It vents outside. The charcoal filter ones are a joke.
There ought to be a law requiring builders and architects to ask home buyers
in writing "Do you want a fan which vents to the outside? Do you realize the
other types are illogical and ineffective?"
There's a long list of other disclosures I can think of. "Would you like
your toilet so close to the wall on either side that no standard mop will
fit in between?" "Would you like so much blacktop on the property that it
practically negates the effectiveness of your air conditioning?" "Would you
like all the trees removed for no particular reason?"
