    Try to live on one floor, so you just have to run one A/C.

    * Turn the temperature on the hot water heater down (if electric).

    * If you have electric heat, try to live in one part of the house when the heat is on.

    * Switch your light bulbs to those nice compact fluorescent bulbs. They save a little bit of energy and make the house brighter. You can often find them on sale from many places.

    * Use blinds/curtains to help you control the temperature in the house during the day. If you let the daylight in, it will heat the house up. Dark house through the day = easier to cool.
  3. Take it one step further and purchase LED bulbs. More expensive, but far more efficient and last longer.
