Increase Shade Indoors and Outdoors

Shading your home and your central air unit lowers your electric bill by reducing how much and how hard the unit has to work. Plant shade trees near the condenser to keep it out of direct sunlight, as well as along the east and west of your property, keeping your house cooler naturally during the summer. Inside your home, use energy efficient blinds and window treatments — and keep these closed during the day to keep hot air out.

Reduce Use of Heat Generating Items

A lot of focus is placed on keeping the hot air from the outside from getting into your home; however, what you do inside the home can also increase the temperature, thus forcing the air conditioner to work harder. Over the summer, cook outside as much as possible and line or air-dry clothing to avoid using the oven and dryer, two of the biggest heat generators in a home. Replace the bulbs in your home with compact fluorescents, which generate less heat than incandescent bulbs, and always turn the lights off when you aren’t in the room or at home to limit the extra heat.
