No-cost tips

  • Save heavy housework such as washing dishes, using the oven and laundry for cooler parts of the day. These appliances create heat and moisture that put an extra strain on your air conditioner.
  • Keep direct sunlight out as much as possible. Close curtains, shades and blinds to hold down the temperature inside the home.
  • Be sure the damper is tightly closed on a fireplace to prevent air loss.

Low-cost tips

  • Clean or change the air filters in your air conditioning unit. Dirty filters cause the equipment to work harder, using up to 5 percent more energy than a clean filter.
  • Use fans to circulate the air. The breeze makes the air feel cooler than it is. Fans only cost $1-2 a month to operate.
  • Properly ventilate your attic to prevent excess heat build-up, which causes your cooling system to work harder.
  • Upgrade or install insulation can reduce cooling costs by as much as 20 percent.
  • Replace old weatherstripping around doors and windows to prevent leaks.
