Another way to save on cooling cost is to get some solar screens on your windows. They are the most effective window treatments that you can apply to your home for lowering energy bills by stopping the heat transfer through your windows and doors while still maintaining your view.

Solar Screens work in three different ways:

1. Shading Coeffiency - the amount of shade created between the solar screen and exterior pane of glass.
2. Reflectivity - reflecting the direct sun's rays of light off of the screen, defusing the amount of direct sun's rays.
3. Absorption - the heat that is absorbed and held into the screen material itself and then dispersed back into the air away from the glass.

I just purchased these for my house and they were installed a few days ago. We'll see if they are worth it this summer in the Texas heat. They also add curb appeal to your house.

This is such a great list! Thanks for this! I have been looking for some ways to cut down my costs since I have been paying a lot for rent. It is crazy. I have thought about a blower door test, which would see how much air would get into my house through my door. It is a substantial amount. Thanks for the list.
