The first and most obvious way to save money on heating and cooling is to adjust your thermostat. For every degree that you set back your thermostat, you can expect to save roughly three percent on your heating and cooling costs, according to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
During the cooler months, open your shades during the day to use sunlight to heat your home, and close them at night to insulate the indoor air. In the warmer months, keep your shades closed so that your home is better insulated.
