i am lucky to have a lot of south facing windows that gather light. however, in the humid days my house gets very hot.
i have only very thin, sheer white curtains (except dd's room, with opaque cotton ones). seem to recall hearing about heavier curtains that can help regulate temps--but maybe that is to keep out winter drafts?
i do not have much money to spend but would like to do something. we have an old stone house, and fans do not do much. also, we cannot use many fans due to old electric system.
thanks for any suggestions.
