Ways To Save Money On Your Monthly Bills On Your Bloomington Apartment

Everyone likes to save money on monthly bills in Bloomington, but is it really feasible when you reside in an apartment? While cutting your rent would be pleasant,, instead, consider your energy expenses.

Whether you inhabit a studio or a three-bedroom apartment, there are various methods you can save money on monthly bills in your Bloomington apartment.

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Bloomington

Change Your Furnace Filter and Use Less Energy

Plugged up air filters cause your HVAC system to work harder and burn more energy. Dusty filters mean a more expensive utility bill for you. Not only will a clean filter help your HVAC system work better, but it should also help stop untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's experienced the heat go out in the middle of a freezing winter night will say it's well worth checking and replacing your filter.

You can purchase an air filter at any chain or home and garden store. Just make certain you get the proper size, as a bigger apartment may take a larger air filter than a single-bedroom. You might also like to see if the maintenance staff offers complimentary replacements. Look at the filter each month, even if it's designed to last for 90 days. If you hold it up to a light and aren’t able to see through it, that's an excellent sign it's time for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lights

There are many clever ideas for saving money on monthly bills in Bloomington, but some of the favorites is with home lighting. LED light bulbs require a smaller amount of energy than typical incandescent bulbs and work much longer. If you're concerned about the first purchase cost, don't be. The price of LED bulbs has dropped significantly through the years, and there are numerous inexpensive options.

The savings here is two-fold, as not only will you limit energy consumption, you'll also benefit from not having to get replacement bulbs as frequently. Check with your community’s office team as they may utilize LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Google Home or Amazon Echo does more than only play that song you're dying to hear? With a smart light or smart plug, you can manage lights through your phone app or verbal commands.

If you fail to turn a light off, you can do so directly from the app rather than allowing it to burn the entire day. Or limit your utility consumption even further by setting your lights to switch on and off automatically.

These high-tech and helpful solutions offer peace of mind in additional scenarios. If you're on vacation or on a work trip, you can set your lights to turn on automatically. You can give the appearance and make it appear that you're home by setting the light to turn on at the normal time you return home.
