One of the biggest home expenses during the summer months is the cooling cost for your whole house. You can help save energy and stay cool by being smart about your central cooling system. Close the vents in little-used rooms like spare bedrooms or the dining room. By restricting the flow of cool air into unused rooms, you'll keep your heavily used rooms much more comfortable. And the cooler those rooms get, the more you can raise the thermostat and save money.
