It's been really hot this week. Well, duh...it's August!
But our downstairs AC has been on the fritz since Sunday. The repair guys are supposed to be coming today to fix it.
The hottest room by far has been the kitchen. See, we have this skylight that allows direct sunlight into the room. It's great when it comes to providing light. I rarely turn on the kitchen lights during the day.
But that wonderful skylight also allows a great deal of heat into the kitchen. So today my husband put a sun shield up to block the heat....and light.
Although it's still warm, it has made a difference in the temperature. I don't know why we didn't do it sooner. I guess we kept hoping the repair guys would show up.
UPDATE 8/3/12: No one showed up yesterday either, nor did we receive a call saying why. Because we have to go through our home warranty's contractors, we basically have no choice but to wait. It's been a very frustrating week.
