I know many people are suffering in the heat wave. So... I thought I'd post a few of Alex's tips to making your home more efficient at cooling.

Also, he's funny.

Wouldn't the soaker hose be a no-no in areas where water use is carefully monitored?

you can water your lawn during certain times of day and days of the week. If you chose to water your lawn in such an unusual way, I suppose that's your lookout.

Additionally there are alternative designs for roofs that do similar things via the angle of their tiles (e.g., creating "sun troughs" to absorb light from the low-traveling winter sun and reflecting the high-noon summer sun)...

The trick is to flow the water at such a rate that it never runs down the downspouts. If you use a soaker hose rather than the sprayer hose, it won't be as obvious, either.
