By judicious use of bulbs, tube lights(use CFL), coolers and ACs. Switch off light, fans etc whenever you are not going to be in a particular space etc.

You can try the following .....
1- Matke ko raat me bahar rakho aur din me gile kapde se lapet ke, paani thanda rahenga
2- Windows per mota khesh latka do, usse gila karte raho, room thanda rahega
3- Sleep in the open air to keep you fit n healthy

Change the filters of your air conditioner and furnace monthly. Keeping the air flowing and clean is good for your lungs and will help maintain peak efficiency
Fluorescent bulbs may be more expensive initially, but they are definitely worth the investment. A single standard incandescent lightbulb can cost the same to operate as six to 10 fluorescent bulb
If your major appliances or air conditioners are more than 10 to 15 years old, they are definitely costing too much to run. Modern appliances that conform to Energy Star efficiency are 10 to 20 percent cheaper to operate than other products, which will add up to big savings on your electric bills. In fact, according to the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, buying a new air conditioner with an energy efficiency rating (EER) of 10, to replace an older one rated at 5, can halve the cost of cooling that room.
