Thermostat Check :: August 2011
Our house stays cool in part because of the way it was built (3/4 earth sheltered using passive solar heating and cooling) and in part because we make an effort. We open the windows on cool nights, close them as soon as the outside temp rises above the inside, and shut the curtains. We rarely run our air conditioning except to condition the air and get some of the humidity out.
What is your thermostat set at? How are you naturally trying to keep your home cool this summer?
