Beat The Heat! 3 Rules For Cooling Your Home And Lowering Your Utility Bills.  
On The Air...

Baby it's hot outside! So how can you keep cool without keeping the air conditioner on full blast all day?

1. Use fans appropriately. Air conditioners cool rooms, fans cool people. Keep your thermostat at a higher temperature and use fans to cool the people in your home. Remember to turn the fans off when you leave the room because they don't cool the room, only the occupants of the room.

2. Take advantage of cool mornings and cool nights. Open your windows to allow cooler air in your home at night and keep those fans running while you sleep. You'll be amazed at how cool the room will be in the morning.

3. Install energy efficient windows and doors. You knew this was coming, but windows with Low-E coatings keep rooms cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Stopping hot air drafts around windows and doors can also make rooms more comfortable. Finally, if your windows are stuck closed and you can't take advantage of rule #2, it's time to make a change.

Rare Window Spotted:  It's A Double Top Sash, Six Over Three Double Hung...One Of A Kind!

While vacationing in North Carolina, Ann and Laurie ran across this interesting window.

It appears to be created from the sashes of two different windows. There was some ingenuity (or luck) involved to make the two top sashes match up. Notice how the muntins line up in a 6 over 3 design. A storm window was added for additional energy efficiency, we're guessing, but that's a generous term for this situation. The storm window is two to three inches shorter than the window opening. See more pictures of this beauty on our blog!

It was an interesting find and we thought we would share it. We're guessing masons admire unique stone work, teachers are stopped by typos and we revel in the uniqueness of windows and doors. If you have an unusual window or door, post it on our Facebook page. We would love to see it!
