I stepped outside my door this morning at 4:30 to head out to the gym and was immediately overcome by an unfamiliar feeling... a cool breeze! Arriving home later on, I rushed around the house opening every window in sight and turning on all the fans. Fresh air that doesn't cost a dime! I need to get it in the house early, trap it in, and then at about 11am, lock it down - closing the windows and the blinds.
Of course, I'm now sitting in my office with the window open and I have to confess to being just a little chilly. I actually have goose-bumps on my arms. I'm not complaining, mind you, I can always put on a sweater.
I'm not normally this fanatical about saving $$ but our AC sucks, our double-paned windows are old, and our 2-story house is a bitch to cool. Since this is my first real summer in this house, I'm trying to decrease the eye-crossing shock of opening my electricity bill this month. Wish me luck.
