Close Curtains on Windows Facing the Sun

Direct sunlight can heat up a room to unbelievably high temperatures. By simply closing the curtains or engaging the blinds you reduce the amount of energy your AC unit needs to use to keep your house cool.

Switch to Florescent Bulbs

Florescent bulbs are significantly more efficient and use nearly 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs. Florsecent bulbs also produce less heat - which is less heat that you AC unit has to fight!

Turn Your Thermostat Up a Degree

Most people can't tell the difference between a one-degree temperature change in a room. By bumping up the thermostat just one degree, you aren't sacrificing your comfort, but you ARE lowering your AC costs

Rearrange the Room to Make Sure Air Flow Isn't Being Blocked

Look around your rooms at home and identify the air vents. Is there furniture blocking them? If so, you should shift some chairs around. This way you can ensure cool air can spread through each room.
