Keep the air circulating in your home and your air conditioner won't  have to work as hard.  Install an Attic Fan. It will pull cool air into your home and help remove hot air trapped in  attics. Schedule Yearly HVAC Maintenance. Increase the efficiency of your HVAC system by  having it inspected and cleaned at least once a year.   Change Your Filters Regularly. Keep your HVAC system running at peak efficiency by  changing the filter every thirty days.  Upgrade to Energy Star Appliances. If your appliances are 10 years or older, consider  replacing them with new, Energy Star models, which use considerably less energy. Get a Programmable Thermostat. Then, set it to run less when you're at work or sleeping. A few degrees can shed 5-  10% from your heating bill.   Pile on the Blankets. An extra blanket on your bed in the winter months is often all it takes to push back the thermostat another couple of degrees.  Install a Tankless Hot Water Heater. The next time you need to replace your hot water heater, consider going with a  tankless heater (also known as an on-demand hot water heater). They can cut your hot water energy cost by half.  Close the Fireplace Damper. Ensure the damper is closed when not in use. Hot air rises and is sucked out the  chimney. Ensure Returns are Free of Obstruction. Heating systems which are "forced-air" send hot air through the house via  vents on the floor and draw back air through returns. Make sure all vents and returns are not obstructed and air can flow  smoothly.
