I have been doing this in the mornings and was looking around for how it should be done but can't find any info about it. Does anyone know a link or can explain how it used to be done?

We air out our house. We've lived several times in Europe over the years, in flats, that require it in the contract. 10 minutes in the morning, crack the windows open with the heat off (if you have control over it). That's it. Do you live in Paris? Just ask a neighbor.
Close enough. More European than the U.S.
So, yeah, we had these windows that tilted just a crack and that's what we were required to do every day. Each morning, for 10 minutes, each room had to be aired out. And as a pp said, we did have radiant heat in every place we lived in. I got so used to the fresh air that I crack a window quite a few times each day even in the middle of winter. Right now, I'm sitting at my computer and the woodburning stove is raging in the living room, while I have a window very slightly cracked open in the kitchen (then again, I'm cooking NYE supper right now).
