Solar Control Fabric For Existing Skylights

Q: Our 14-years-old rancher has two skylights in the kitchen that are approximately 2' x 4'. Every summer this area gets so warm that it becomes very uncomfortable. I am looking for a type of solar control product that could be installed on the glass to help keep the heat out but allow some light into the house. In a few years we would like to replace the skylights with more energy efficient ones but in the meantime we would like something to get us through the next few summers.

The Autocirc is an Instant Hot Water Pump System

Q: We have to let the water run for several minutes before it gets hot enough to shower or wash dishes. Our home has a conventional 60-gallon hot water tank that is located at one end of the home in the basement and the kitchen is on the upper floor at the other end. We seem to waste a lot of water before it gets hot enough to do dishes and run the dishwasher. I am hoping there is something available, that I could add to the existing line to solve this problem?
Instant Hot Water at Every Faucet

It's a problem many people have in their homes. You go to turn on the faucet, to wash your dishes or take a shower, and have to wait for the water to heat up to the desired temperature. Depending on where in your home the hot water tank is located, and the location of your faucet, this could take anywhere from 10 seconds to upwards of a minute, and in that time, litres of precious water is needlessly flushed down the drain.
