Invest in some quality roller blinds or window coverings! Some can be pricey, but it will help you save on A/C bills.

Thanks for the input. I have heard that if you place more insulation in the attic it will stay cooler because the attic is so much hotter. some of my exterior walls are not insulated do you think that has an effect?

I want to know other ways to cool my house during the day. I don't want to shut windows and curtains. I want my house to be ligted by the sun. I couldn't afford buying an airconditioning unit and have my house centralized. Do have any other ideas?
