  •  I DO live in the South, but we didn't build (0+ / 0-)

    our house. We bought it from someone who bought from a developer. The houses in this town were generally built to impress visually, but are poorly insulated, with cheap windows, high ceilings in entry ways and poorly designed kitchens. And people almost bragged about the poor energy efficiency of the homes. Dark roofs absorb heat in summer but are under strict neighborhood covenants so we can't hope to make drastic changes.

    It's hot in Georgia in summer too, but many who live here may never have done so without the invention of the air conditioner.
