Keeping it Cool

We haven't had a ton of heat out here in the Northwest so far this summer (today is forecasted at a cool 72 degrees) but we know a lot of our friends and family around the country have been trying to ward off heatstroke on a daily basis lately.  That's why we wanted to share a post from This Old House on ways of staying cool while still conserving energy.  We have central air in our house (a rare commodity for old Portland homes) but we've yet to use it, even on the few hot days we've had.  We're big fans of the "Texas Cool" technique (tip #4) as well as running fans rather than the AC.
