September 11, 2009, Newsletter Issue #309: Help to keep house cool in summer

Tip of the Week

Some summer days itīs just downright ~HOT~, and the airconditioner or fans work overtime. Hereīs a way to get more relief: about 4pm, when sun is getting its hottest, water down the roof with your water-hose. Yes, it does work! Thoroughly water the roof, and if in a brick house, water the brick as well. Iīve had many a summer day of 110 deg., and by watering the roof, the house got 4-5 degrees cooler without puting a strain on the A/C. My neighbors have seen me doing this, and picked up the practice; try it. But donīt stay out too long in the heat!!
