Tips to save on electric bill? - Reliant Energy Q&A

Question by Rose: Tips to save on electric bill?
We live in a 900 something sq ft condo. It was built in 1970, so undoubtedly the insulation probably isn’t modernized. We have recently seen a significant increase in our electric bill (its about 150 now). I understand its the summer and that I live in Houston.. But I don’t see that as an excuse. My husband found black mold in the radiator/compressor of our ac (inside in the hallway in a door thing). We also had a filthy air filter which we remembered to replace. What are some better ways of conserving energy? We viewed the tips on Reliant.com (whom we have our light bill/energy from) and did a few of them, but some do not apply to us.

Any other tips to get this stinkin’ bill down?
We have the part wind, “money saving” plan where we have a contract.. btw.
My husband refuses to “be uncomfortable in his own home”, so he won’t let the ac go above 75.

Unplug devices when there not being used. Use candles for the showers. Turn off the lights when you don’t need them.
