So I've been having a debate with myself lol. I hate turning lights on during the day when I could open curtains and blinds to let light in, but that also heats up the house, not much but still. So I wanted to ask you ladies, keep them closed and turn on lights to prevent heat from coming in or open them and turn off lights? Trying to keep our electric usage to a minimum esp with the heat

I open the curtains on the sides of the house not getting direct sunlight. Unless I'm cutting out a new or unfamiliar sewing pattern or reading small print it has been enough light throughout the summer months. In the one room with not enough light I use a small task light.

We have 2 west facing windows in our living room and in the afternoon I keep them shut with the shades down to keep the heat out.  I turn on the ac and a small light, keeping the other window in our living room open
