Our bedroom has 10 windows. Ten. 10.

Six of the windows face west. Six. 6.

West! WEST! Where it's 110°!

Needless to say, the blinds on those six windows have been fully drawn for weeks. Recently, I've also started drawing the blinds on the four north/south windows, because it is So. Blasted. Hot!

All the blinds closed makes for a lovely, dark environment in which to sleep.




I'm planning to close the blinds in the guest room and the office beginning tomorrow. Anything I can do to help the air conditioner will be a good thing, since it is running approximately 20 hours a day!

What are you doing to beat the heat?

  1. My parents put car window tint on their house windows to try to save the air conditioning bill. Seems to have made the room a bit cooler, too. :)

    Hope you stay cool!
