Why is it that when I sleep with an open window at night, I wake up way more energized?

I try to sleep most of the time with a cracked window to circulate air. I notice that if it gets really cold outside and I decide to close my window at night, I feel groggy and lethargic the next morning. Why could this be? What are the properties of fresh air that could contribute to a better sleeping process?
Could there be something in my house that is toxic, even if the house was built in the past decade (should I test the air quality in my house... and how)? Or, do others also expereince this phenomenon? Is carbon dioxide slowly killing me, or do the plants that I have in my bedroom have something to do with this?
