Thanks. The window retracts "inward" (inside the basement) thus the gap to the outside world is <2 inches. Since I'm working with six inch ducting I'm not sure much air would be escaping anyway?...Also with it being as hot as it is outside here, I figured a semi-opened window with hot air coming in would just create more problems. Even bigger problems come winter, no?
Somehow it's 90F degrees outside and my basement is 64%F. My air conditioner is housed in the basement so I guess it's technically getting some air flow both ways around the house..not much, but some.
