Still trying to keep cool and reduce air-conditioning costs?  Circulate air inside the house.  If possible, locate fans on your house's upper level and open windows on a lower level.  If you live in a one-story house or apartment, you should close windows near the fan and open windows in rooms far from the fan, preferably on your home's windward side.  Moving air also helps evaporate the sweat from your skin.

Energy saving tip:  To reduce air conditioning costs, window films are a great option. They are transparent and reflect heat before it can be transmitted through glass.

Air Conditioning Savings Tip:  Most heat that accumulates inside a house comes directly from the sun shining onto the roof or through windows, and heating the house directly.  Planting leafy trees around your house's exterior will help to stop the sun from reaching inside your home. Even for the cost of going to the nursery and buying a 15- to 20-foot-tall tree, trees are still the best value.

If you think that you are experiencing zoning issues, make sure all your vents are open.  Sometimes they inadvertently get closed and can cause issues with heat flow.

Energy Saving Tip:  Use your ceiling fans in the winter with the blades operating in a clockwise direction to help push the warm air from the ceiling down into the room.

Have you checked your thermostat's battery lately?   Might be time to change it.  Our recommendation is to replace the batteries once a year to prevent the thermostat and heating/cooling system from shutting down due to a lack of battery power.
