Get outside and cook!

As I mentioned in the last post light bulbs emit heat that your A/C is forced to deal with. This is true of any appliance. Computers,TVs,DVD players, etc,etc. Nowhere is this truer than the kitchen with its range/oven and refrigerator hummin. So get outside and cook the hot stuff if you can. With a gas or electric grill you can keep a lot of hot air outside where it belongs. Think about it. You pay for the energy to produce the heat anyhow why should you pay for the energy to get rid of it also? Save the heavy oven work for winter when it will actually help heat the house.
