Double Roof

A great, easy, and relatively cheap energy saver would be a second roof.
This is a roof built about 6-8"s above the current roof. The East/West facing sides would extend a little past the roof, and the North/South sides would be even with the current roof.
You put wire around the gap to keep critters out.

The way the second roof will reflect a lot of heat, and the heat it absorbs will be vented out the 8" high gap between roofs.

This could save a LOT of money on energy bills.

What I mean by 'Idea'

By 'Idea' I mean something practical. This might be an improvement or something new but it should be practical.
For example:
"We should all have jet packs."
While a great idea, it's not very practical.
If I had an idea on how to improve the thrust/weight ratio, then that would be a practical idea. That being the only real problem that would need to be solved for jet packs.
