Cover your windows if you’re not going to be home. This keeps the interior of your home cooler or warmer, depending on the season, and reduces your energy bill. Typically, the south facing windows are the ones that get the most amount of sun due to their location. Use dark curtains, roman shades, roller shades or other coverings on all windows.
