Everybody looks to save money on monthly bills in Greenwood, but is it doable when you reside in an apartment? While reducing your rent would be great,, instead, focus on your utility expenses.

Whether you reside in a studio or a three-bedroom apartment, there are various tips on how you can save money on monthly bills with your Greenwood apartment.

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Greenwood

Replace Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Clogged air filters force your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy. Grimy filters lead to a costlier utility bill for you. Not only will a fresh filter let your HVAC system run better, but it should also help prevent untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's had the heat die in the middle of a freezing winter night will agree it's well worth checking and switching out your air filter.

You can find an air filter at any big box or hardware retailer. Just ensure you get the right kind, as a bigger apartment might need a bigger air filter than a one-bedroom. You might also wish to ask if the maintenance team offers complimentary replacements. Inspect the filter every month, even if it's rated to work for 90 days. If you put it up to a light and can't see through it, that's a good sign you’re ready for a replacement.

Smart lights in a Greenwood apartment

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lighting

There are numerous good ideas for saving money on monthly bills in Greenwood, but some of the best is with home lighting. LED light bulbs need smaller amounts of power than common incandescent bulbs and last much longer. If you're uneasy about the upfront purchase amount, don't be. The cost of LED bulbs has fallen significantly through the years, and there are numerous budget-friendly alternatives.

The frugality here is two-fold, as not only will you reduce power use, you'll also benefit from not needing to buy replacement bulbs as frequently. Talk to your unit’s maintenance team as they might prefer LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Do you know your Google Home or Amazon Echo do more than just play that song you're trying to hear? With a smart light or smart plug, you can operate lights through your mobile app or voice commands.

If you fail to turn a light off, you can do so straight from the app instead of letting it burn the entire day. Or control your power use even further by putting your lights on a timer to switch off and on automatically.

These high-tech and helpful solutions offer peace of mind in more situations. If you're visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can program your lights to activate automatically. You can give the appearance and make it appear that you're home by setting the light to turn on at the same time you return home.
