Paint

I read somehting pretty interesting today in the FedEx Ground Network News circular and thought I would share it.

"Purple paint is heavier, hotter, and more difficult to apply to vehicles than white paint. That's why FedEx limited the amount of purple when it redesigned its logo and global identity. Using white paint also reduces the surface temperatures of FedEx aircraft by 40 degrees F, so less energy is needed to cool planes."

I wonder if the same principle would hold true in regards to the exterior of my house. My freakin utility bill is SKY high! Of course though I dont have a purple house.

Yes, it would make a difference on your house. Darker colors absorb more heat. You can feel the difference between wearing a white t-shirt or a black one on a hot summer day.
