I just turned my AC on for the first time this week, and I've been trying to only keep it on at night, because I hate getting hot when I sleep. I realize that I'll probably have to start turning it on during the daytime soon, but I'm just wondering how you guys save money with your AC. Here's a few ways I do: 1. I turn it off when I'm not home unless I have to leave my dogs home alone. (I often take them to my parents' house, so they don't get hot.) 2. I turn it off when I first wake up in the morning. The House is cool from it being on all night, and the temps outside are usually at their coolest. It may only stay off for an hour or so, but I figure every little bit helps. 3. I close vents in rooms I rarely go in and close the doors to those rooms. Not sure if that helps, but I'd like to think it does. 4. If I get home late, I do everything I need to do to get ready for bed (shower, brush teeth, get food or clothes ready for the next day, etc.) before turning it on. My bedroom may be hot when I first get in bed but I do keep a fan beside for this reason. What do you do to save money during AC season?
