Ouch. I do over 5,000 texts a month, without them i'd wear my cell phone battery down talking instead of texting, and not get much work done (can't physically be on the phone around customers in my line of work while servicing accounts/stores)

I always grew up being told 'down' for summer and 'up' for winter. Personally, turning them off for good in the summer has helped cool it down from 80 or so down to 76-77. In fact it's 88 outside now, and 77 inside. Four hours ago it was 94 outside and 80 inside.

I put down Kronotex Laminate Flooring from Lowes in our den last winter, love it. It didn't take the '2 to 3 hours' estimated time though. More like 30 minutes to an hour a evening/night for the whole week, trim molding included. Course, i did throw the back out on night 1 carrying the packaging up ...

Problem is, the skylight area inside the house seems to trap the heat just below the skylight itself, in the square area.♠ I have the same issue, wildirish. living room, cathedral ceilings, hot air trapped. also anywhere else in the house, master br, 3 feet of it between the closet and the main br. ...

Hi, New here, hope i'm posting in the right subforum. I have 2 skylights in a 28x80 mh. Both in bathrooms. Wife loves em, i am starting to hate them. The heat(whether from the sunlight source or being trapped up in the 'square') is ridiculous...it feels 20 to 40 degrees hotter inside where the cut o...
