How To Save Money On Your Monthly Bills On Your West Lafayette Apartment

Every resident likes to save money on monthly bills in West Lafayette, but is it really feasible when you live in an apartment? While cutting your lease would be pleasant,, instead, think about your utility bills.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in West Lafayette

Replace Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Full air filters cause your HVAC system to run harder and expend more energy. Dusty filters cause a higher utility bill for you. A new filter will not only make your HVAC system run more productively, but it will also help avoid untimely breakdowns. Anyone who's experienced the heat die in the middle of a frigid winter night will advise you it's well worth checking and changing your filter.

You can buy an air filter at any big box or home improvement retailer. Just make certain you get the correct style, as a bigger apartment might demand a bigger air filter than a single-bedroom. You might also like to ask if the maintenance staff offers complimentary replacements. Check the filter every month, even if it's expected to hold up for 90 days. If you hold it up to a light and can't see through it, that's an excellent sign you’re ready for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Bulbs

There are lots of smart ideas on saving money on monthly bills in West Lafayette, but some of the best is with home lighting. LED light bulbs need less energy than traditional filament lights and hold up much longer. If you're concerned about the first purchase cost, don't be. The price of LED bulbs has fallen substantially over the years, and there are lots of cost-effective choices.

The savings here is two-fold, because not only will you decrease power use, you'll also benefit from not having to purchase replacement bulbs as frequently. Talk to your community’s maintenance staff as they might utilize LED bulbs and furnish you with them!

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

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

If you forget to turn a light off, you can do so directly from the app instead of allowing it to burn the entire day. Or control your utility use even more by programming your lights to switch off and on automatically.

These innovative and convenient solutions give peace of mind in more situations. If you're visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can program your lights to turn on automatically. You can give the appearance and make it look like you're home by setting the light to turn on at the usual time you arrive home.
