6. Tulane did a study on the system...

I don't really care if I get back the money I have spent. I spent $25 on the shade and $100 on the mister. If they both only shave off a few degrees combined, it may at least make my house a little more comfortable during peak hours. I REALLY need insulation, but that is an expense I could not afford this season, as my job was very iffy.

Once I feel secure in my job, insulation and then new windows are next. The insulation will likely pay for itself in a moderate amount of time. The windows will be expensive, but they will give the added benefits of looking better and giving more home security. So it's all good.
