If you have a crawl space, make sure that it is properly sealed and insulated. See Crawl Space Insulation from the U.S. Department of Energy for more information.
Keep your oven door closed when baking. Every time you open the oven door, the temperature can drop 25 degrees.
For oven cooking, use the lowest temperature setting possible and preheat the oven to the exact temperature required.
When cooking on range tops, cover pots and pants; foods will cook more efficiently and the kitchen will stay cooler in the summer.
