Exhaust Fans – Cooking can heat up the air in your home and cause your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to. Utilize the exhaust fan over your stove to suck heat up and out of your house while preparing food to keep your home cooler.

Dehumidifiers – Humidity can make it feel hotter than it really is. Use a dehumidifier to keep the humidity out of your home and keep you more comfortable. You may even be able to raid the temperature of your AC.

Keep it Out of the Sun – Your central air unit should be kept on the north side of your home to prevent the sun from reaching it. If this is not possible, you can plant trees or shrubs around the unit to keep it in the shade. This will prevent your AC from working harder than it needs to.

Save Chores for Later – Chores like laundry and running the dishwasher can heat up your home, so save them for the evening hours when it is cooler outside. You can even have them running when no one is home.
