How To Save Money On Your Monthly Bills On Your Indianapolis Apartment

Everybody looks to save money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but is it possible when you live in an apartment? While slashing your rent would be great,, instead, focus on your utility bills.

Whether you inhabit a studio or a three-bedroom apartment, there are various tips on how you can save money on monthly bills on your Indianapolis apartment.

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Indianapolis

Switch Out Your Furnace Air Filter and Burn Less Energy

Clogged air filters make your HVAC system operate harder and use more energy. Grimy filters mean a more expensive utility bill for you. Not only will a clean filter make your HVAC system run more productively, but it can also help stop inconvenient breakdowns. Anyone who's seen the heat die in the middle of a cold winter night will say it's well worth inspecting and replacing your air filter.

You can pick up an air filter at any big box or hardware store. Just ensure you purchase the proper kind, as a more spacious apartment may take a larger air filter than a single-bedroom. You may also like to see if the maintenance team supplies their own replacements. Check the filter every month, even if it's rated to last for 90 days. If you hold it in front of a light and are unable to see through it, that's a good hint it's time for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lights

There are lots of smart ideas on saving money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but one of the best is with home lighting. LED lights need less energy than common incandescent lights and work much longer. If you're uneasy about the initial purchase cost, don't be. The cost of LED bulbs has fallen dramatically through the years, and there are numerous affordable options.

The savings here is two-fold, because not only will you limit power consumption, you'll also gain from not needing to purchase replacement bulbs as often. Check with your community’s front office staff as they may utilize 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 simply play that song you're dying to listen to? Utilizing a smart light or smart plug, you can activate lights through your phone app or verbal commands.

If you neglect to turn a light off, you can do so straight from the app instead of allowing it to burn the whole day. Or manage your energy use even further by programming your lights to switch off and on automatically.

These smart and easy solutions offer peace of mind in more areas. If you're away visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can set your lights to come on automatically. You can give the appearance and make it look like you're home by setting the light to come on at the same time you come home.
