Residents' window-opening behavior is the most basic method to obtain fresh air and improve the indoor environment, and is also an important factor affecting building energy consumption. The behavior of opening and closing windows of urban residents will be different due to regional differences. However, there are less of the thorough enough research on the time and seasonal habit of residents’ window-opening behavior in Liaoning. This paper investigated the window-opening behavior and its influencing factors of 28 typical urban households in natural ventilation and mechanical ventilation houses in Liaoning province by questionnaire survey and on-site testing. The opening and closing behavior of residents’ windows were continuously monitored online for one year by using magnetic sensors of XIAOMI brand. The long-term monitoring results showed that the window-opening behavior of residents in Liaoning has strong seasonality. In summer, the window-opening time is relatively longer, and often more than 24 hours. What’s more, most local residents have the habit of opening windows for ventilation when they get up in the morning, even in the cold winter. The understanding of the window-opening behavior of residents in this area can provide strong support for architectural design or renovation strategy.
