1.UPGRADING WINDOWS:
If you have old windows, you might want to explore better options and upgrade them to eco-friendlier ones. This will help you minimize the energy cost, cooling and heating of your property and since they are more cost-effective, it should be seen more as an investment rather than an expense.

3.EXCESSIVE LIGHTING:
Believe or not, Excessive lighting can raise the temperature in a short period of time (and your bill too). Make sure to use eco-friendly light bulbs which over time will get you your money back.

Did you know that only 10-15% of the electricity used in lighting actually produces light? The rest is pure heat, turning lights off in the unused rooms would be another way of conserving a cool temperature.

4.CLEAN YOUR AC FILTERS EVERY MONTH:
According to Family Handyman, dirty filters are the number 1 reason why breakdowns occur. Not just it provokes breakdowns but, the AC is forced to apply more energy in order to work effectively. By cleaning it every month, you can assure not just savings in terms of money but, you would as well keep a fresher, cleaner and cooler environment inside your home.

5.FOCUS ON THE ROOM, NOT THE HOUSE:
You don’t need to cool the whole house to be around it. You will be able to save a lot of energy by just focusing on the rooms that are in use. Make sure that the door is always shut and that you seal all the gaps so the cool air doesn’t sneak out of the room.
