Bedroom side windows

How had or can it even be done to turn the windows from raising up for air flow to make the windows pull down for air flow. Could it be as simple as turning the frame upside down - curious minds would like to know.: dance:

The only concern I see is, the windows are not designed to be water-tight upside-down. I do see your purpose, warmer air is near the ceiling, exactly like a house.

Yeah, wouldn't it be nice if they would install vertical sliders so that they could be operated at night with the shades down.

Look on the exterior and you'll see weep holes in the frame on the bottom. These are for draining the water in the frame. Flip the window over and they'll be on top. It will no longer drain.

You could conceivably disassemble the window and reassemble it with the vent on top. Would take some knowledge of windows to rework the weep system though.

You can install the window upside down, but as mentioned it will create a problem when rain enters through the weep holes.

These windows are relatively small, and located mid wall. As a result, I wouldn’t expect much, if any benefit from changing the way they’re installed.

When in the mountains, I typically open the rear bath ceiling vent, turn the fan on low, and open my window a little. This creates a nice breeze pulling cool air in my window, exhausting it out the roof of the bath.

I sure would not even begin to think about turning the windows upside down...

As an aside, I dont believe that we have ever had the bed windows open... all that does is admit the ridiculous noise of every pick-up truck owner who is male and under the age of 30, who seems to feel that a truck is not a REAL truck unless it sounds like a Cat diesel dozer at full throttle. Throw in the Harleys that sound like a 50 Chevy with no mufflers and you'll get no sleep at all. They can take my bedroom windows out for all I care.

That is why we have three air conditioners..... IMHO I use them
