    Hoping to get my electricity bill reduced this summer. Last year, our bill went up to as much as $400 per month . I suspected that our west facing windows are the culprit. So I redesign it and add a curtain rod on top of the drapes. Then I bought thermal insulated curtain to further block the sun from coming in. That was a less than $100 fix.

    I was thinking of tinting my windows but installing the tint is not worth the amount of time. And the effectiveness is questionable. 

    Replacing to my window glass to multiple pane thermal glass would cost me an arm and leg.

    The most I paid was $200 during summer months in Texas.

    House was purchased with double pane windows with solar screens. I added thermal curtains and two solar powered attic vents. 

    I installed window AC in the master bedroom which was set to 70 at night [this is the only room that we used anyway after 10pm].  Central AC was set to 78 overnight.

    You can reduce the heat coming from the west by using insulated glass panes with low-e coating (low emissivity) and sun shades (if you don't mind its presence). A bit expensive but may reduce your electric bill in the long run. Drapes at the interior have very minimal benefits. So with tints.

    I bought an old house and replacing to dual pane insulated glass would also mean I have to replace my window rail. But yeah, it's worth the investment.

    Whole house fan.

    It works by pulling in cooler air from the outside of your home thru your open windows and blowing it out thru your roof vent. But if it's 100F + outside, it's not that effective as you're pulling in warm air.

    You also have to consider what type of insulation were used on the walls, roof, attic, etc.  Are they up to code at least?

    Check also for air leaking into your home.

    ^The house is up to code. And yes, I'm also thinking of the solar panel exhaust fan.  

    And even my heater, I don;t undertand why Americans still uses the conventional tank heater when a solar heater technology is not new. But yeah, it look awful on your roof.
