Ways To Save Money On Your Monthly Bills In Your Greenwood Apartment

Everyone looks to save money on monthly bills in Greenwood, but is it doable when you reside in an apartment? While it would be nice to lower your rent, 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

Switch Out Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Full air filters force your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy. Dirty filters lead to a costlier utility bill for you. A new filter will not only let your HVAC system run better, but it should also help prevent untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's seen the furnace die in the middle of a freezing winter night will advise you it's well worth inspecting and switching out your air filter.

You can buy an air filter at any big box or hardware retailer. Just make sure you get the right kind, as a bigger apartment may require a bigger air filter than a one-bedroom. You might also wish to see if the maintenance team provides free 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 an excellent indication you’re ready for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lighting

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

The savings here is two-fold, as not only will you reduce power consumption, you'll also benefit from not needing to buy replacement bulbs as frequently. Talk to your unit’s front office team as they might prefer LED bulbs and provide 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 listen to? Using 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 directly from the app instead of letting it burn the entire day. Or control your power consumption even further by setting your lights 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 set 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.
