Green Building Q&A: Home Energy Improvents with best ROI

I recently moved into a new construction home in Phoenix, AZ and assumed it would be energy efficient, but after only a short time in the home I am finding it is not so. It is a smaller 1600sq ft single level home, concrete tile roof, it has R19 wall and R30 ceiling insulation, lowE windows, CFL's, 15seer ac unit to name a few. What are some cost effective energy improvements that will make our home more energy efficient in this hot climate? We have added shade screens, and I am considering a radiant barrier in the attic as well as garage door, but other than that I can't think of many options I have. Any input would be appreciated.
