I knew that closing the curtains and/or blinds at night and opening them when the sun would shine in could help keep the home warm. This morning I had a practical experience of it.
When I woke, it was 63 degrees in my room. I opened the curtains and blinds and it dropped to 60. The sun came up and shone bravely, and soon it was 65 in here. I like seeing theory born out in practice.
