How Can You Protect Your Home From The Heat?

As temperatures rise, homeowners everywhere are trying to find new ways to protect themselves and their electric bills from the heat. One solution to this growing problem, is layers.

Sander's hyper-insulated construction provides incredible protection from outside heat.
