tip of the week- dispel summer heat

If you've got sash hung windows, open a few from the top to let some heat out (since heat rises). If you can't just get it to go down after unlocking the window, open the window from the bottom and then reach up behind that pane and pull down on the upper piece. Then you can lower the lower pane.

This is also helpful when you want to leave your windows open while it's raining. Just make sure the storm window is raised, lower the top pane, and air will be able to escape without letting rain in.
