Saving Energy With Air Conditioning

By: Rachel Skillicorn

1. Get rid of un-used or old appliances because they use heat and that can make you use more of the air conditioning

2. Insulate your house, so that the cool air can stay in and not be wasted

3. Instead of using up all the air conditioning and running up your bill, use fans; they don't use a lot of energy and they still give you the same cooling effect

4. Shade your windows, put up curtains so the sun can't come straight through the window

5. If you put in a light colored roof that could decrease the amount of cooling you need by 10-15%
