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

Everyone looks to save money on monthly bills in Carmel, but is it truly doable when you live in an apartment? While it would be nice to lower your rent, instead, think about your utility expenses.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Carmel

Switch Out Your Air Filter and Waste Less Energy

Plugged up air filters make your HVAC system work harder and expend more energy. Grimy filters lead to a higher utility bill for you. Not only will a fresh filter make your HVAC system operate better, but it can also help avoid premature malfunctions. Anyone who's seen the heat fail in the middle of a cold winter night will say it's well worth monitoring and switching out your filter.

You can buy an air filter at any big box or home and garden retailer. Just make certain you purchase the right kind, as a bigger apartment could use a bigger air filter than a one-bedroom. You might also wish to ask if the maintenance staff offers complimentary replacements. Look at the filter each month, even if it's estimated to hold up for 90 days. If you hold it up to a light and are unable to see through it, that's an excellent hint it's time for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lights

There are numerous clever ideas on saving money on monthly bills in Carmel, but some of the best is with home lighting. LED light bulbs use smaller amounts of energy than typical filament bulbs and hold up much longer. If you're anxious about the upfront purchase cost, don't be. The expense of LED bulbs has fallen significantly over the years, and there are numerous cost-effective alternatives.

The benefits here is two-fold, because not only will you reduce power use, you'll also benefit from not having to get replacement bulbs as much. Check with your community’s office staff as they may use LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Did you know your Google Home or Amazon Echo does more than only play that song you're wanting to find? With a smart light or smart plug, you can control lights through voice commands or your mobile app.

If you forget to turn a light off, you can do so straight from the app rather than letting it burn all day. Or manage your power use even more by putting your lights on a schedule to turn on and off automatically.

These innovative and easy solutions provide peace of mind in additional situations. If you're away visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can program your lights to come on automatically. You can give the illusion and make it appear that you're home by setting the light to come on at the usual time you come home.
