asuirish121 could use some advice:

I was wondering about a low cost solution in cooling the house. We have a small house with low ceilings and it holds in heat. We open windows and run fans. Is there something cheap and easy to help out with cooling while being green? Any advice at all would be great.

Have ideas or suggestions? Post them here.
