No. While the air conditioner is on, keep the windows closed to keep the cool air from escaping to the outside.

Can you keep your windows open while the air conditioner is running?

You can keep your windows open with the air conditioner running, but by doing so, you are letting the hot air in, the cold air out, wasting electricity, and causing your electric bill to be higher.

Does having the window open at home while the air conditioner is on cost you more?

If you are trying to cool your home or room to a temperature that is lower than the temperature outside, then the electricity needed will be much greater if the window is open. So, in short, yes.AnswerOn a warm day, leaving your windows open will allow warm air to replace the air that your air conditioner just worked to cool. Thus, your air conditioner will have to continue to run, which uses electricity, to re-cool this air. Of course, using more electricity will cost you more money.

Using the air conditioner never saves fuel. But if you are going to use the air conditioner it is better at highway speeds than having the windows rolled down. In the city is better to turn the AC all and open the windows.
