As you already know, our house has been horribly hot this summer whenever it is hot outdoors. To combat the heat, we decided to repaint our home's exterior from dark cocoa brown to a pale shade of yellow. So far, only the west and south sides have been painted. Yesterday, when it was 96 degrees outside, it was between 75 and 80 inside. What an improvement already! One day last week, it was 97 outside and a cool 94 inside. Imagine what it would have been if we had not had centrail air???
