Consider Using a Fan 

Fans use 1/10 the energy of an air conditioner. Remember fans cool people, not rooms, so turn them off when no one is around. 

Set Your Air Conditioner to 78 Degrees

To avoid an increase in your electric bill, most industry experts recommend setting your air conditioner to 78 degrees during the summer. Consider using a programmable thermostat to  control hours of operation.

Use Your Shades

Keep heat out by using shades and blinds to create a barrier from the outside heat. 

Get Grilling

Keep your home cool by cooking outdoors or using a microwave instead of your stove or oven.
