Since the Forcast will be VERY pretty for a while, we turned off the Air Conditioner on the 3rd day of fall here in Texas. I know it sounds crazy, but every little bit of money saved is GREATLY appreciated. The technique I use works like this:

1) open 2 windows, one on each side of the house.

2) Put a box fan blowing into the house in one window, and a box fan blowing out in the other window. It works even better if you set it up so the wind is helping you.

3) I do this early in the morning or in the late evening when the temperature is comfortable. Then the windows are shut during the hottest and coldest part of the days, so as to regulate the temperature more towards the median value. On days like the forecast, I can keep the interior temperature between 72 and 79 pretty easily.
