Slemco has brochures. Turn your air conditioner to. 80 when you aren't home and as high as you can stand when you are in the house. Caulk around windows or if you have the money replace them with double pane orgon filled gas. Use LED light bulbs. Don't leave the lights on when you aren't in the room. When buying a new appliance make sure it has the energy star rating use full loads in your washer dryer and dishwasher. Put a foot of insulation in your attic. Plant trees like river birch close to your house on the south and west. Don't plant a live oak. It will mess up your foundation and plumbing, if you have an electric hot water change it to natural gas if you can afford it. If not set the temperature below 120 degrees. Seal up cracks around doors. Get a professional to clean your air conditioner and change filters once a month. If you have a fireplace close the damper when not in use. Cut off the vent in a room you don't use. Don't open the refrigerator more than when you have to. Install ceiling fans. It will make it seem cooler. Unplug computers when not in use. Wash clothes on cold if possible. Tide makes a detergent that works in cold water. Run water on your roof when it is hot. Make sure your attic is well insulated. Insulate your walls if you can. Use hair dryers sparingly. Take baths using less water and less hot water. When your ac goes out get a high efficiency one. Wrap with insulation all vents in the attic. Unplug TV when not in use. Ovens put a lot of heat in your house that the ac has to remove so use your oven infrequently in the summer. Central units are more efficient than window units

Insulation is not that expensive if you buy it by the roll. Its easy to insulate the attic. Walls and floors are harder to insulate. You can put a layer of R13 in the attic of a 1200 sq. ft. house for about 400.00 And that will save you about 10 percent on your electricity forever. I put three layers in my attic, and I keep it ice cold with just two small window units.
