Two very effective and simple ways are to switch out any traditionally incandescents for less energy demanding compact fluorescents – additionally you could look into the efficiency of your insulation, and upgrade it to higher insulation levels which will increase the efficiency of your cooling and heating systems.
Make sure your walls and attic are well insulated.
Upgrade or replace windows.
Replace an older furnace with a high-efficiency system.
Replace incandescent lightbulbs with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs).
Take advantage of new tax incentives to improve your home.
Have ENERGY STAR approved appliances that use 10–50% less energy and water than standard models; and their home electronics, which if the average home replaced their two TVs, three telephones, and DVD player with ENERGY STAR qualified equipment would save over 25 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions equal to that of more than 2 million cars. As far as heating and cooling efficiency goes, make sure air filters are changed regularly, seal leaks and ducts, and add insulation
