Appliances: Purchase certified ENERGY STAR appliances. You could save roughly $750 a year just by using ENERGY STAR appliances.

Air Conditioner: Check your air conditioner before the spring condition to make sure it is in proper working conditions. Analyze the evaporator coil and clean or replace the air filter so your unit is operating at optimal levels. This could help reduce your energy consumption by 15%.

Lighting: Purchase energy-saving lighting throughout your home. Using lights that are energy-efficient ENERGY STAR bulbs can reduce your electricity bill and save you approximately $75 a year.

Water Heater: Reduce energy and save money on your water bill by lowering the temperature or your water heater and installing low-flow showerheads.

Curtains: Some curtains repel heat others allow natural light in your home. Purchase sheers, blinds, shades, or curtains that allow natural light in your home to help cut costs on your heating and cooling bill.

Ceiling Fan: Ceiling fans allow you to raise the temperature on your thermostat thus reducing your electricity bill.
