One thing that you could do is buy more efficient appliances and household products. Converting your old washer and dryer to energy star appliances as well as your heating and cooling systems will save you a ton of money. Also converting your lightbulbs to CFLs will save a lot of money in the long run. As far as you yourself, try to use more natural light in your home when you need to have light in a room, and basically just be more conscious of your energy usage. It really is very easy to save a lot of energy with simple changes.
The most significant way to use less energy on a daily basis is to utilize alternative forms of transportation whenever possible rather than to drive a personal vehicle. Additionally, energy consumption in the home can be reduced by ensuring your appliances are the most energy efficient as possible (check for Energy Star Ratings). Similarly, ensure your residence is well insulated and utilize natural ventilation rather than air conditioning whenever possible. If you must utilize air conditioning (or heating) understand that setting the temperature up a degree or two in the summer and down a degree or two in the winter can make a huge difference in energy consumption. Also, programmable thermostats are great as they allow you to only maintain desired temperatures for certain hours of the day. Finally, remember to turn off all electric appliances and fixture when not in use and replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs and you will be well on your way to using less energy.
