    @ teddy ...

    Shoot, we've been running the house A/C since early April here. The electric company loves the revenue from our house this time of the year. Conversely the gas company loves us during the winter.

    We are supposedly going to reach the 100° (F) mark this coming week. June is typically our hottest month with the record being 117° (F) in 1992.

    We will miss a week of it as we are off to Cozumel (Mexico) for a week of R & R ... sailing, snorkeling, swimming, sunning, no phones, no internet, no cars, just lots of fun at the all-inclusive resort we are booked at.

    Sounds great Lars. Enjoy. Have you not got solar panels to run the AC?

    The front of the house (facing south) is where they would have to go ... the CC&R's of the neighborhood prohibit such things where it is visible from the street. All the homes where I live have Mexican tile on the roofs.

    My electric bill isn't that bad anyway. The past month was only $107.00 USD and the AC has been running the whole month. I have a balanced power home where we use Gas for home heating, water heating and the dryer for laundry. The high range for both utilities year round runs about $200 (USD) per month and that's doable for us.
