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

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

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Carmel

Replace Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Clogged air filters make your HVAC system operate harder and burn more energy. Grimy filters mean a more expensive energy bill for you. A fresh filter will not only make your HVAC system work more productively, but it will also help prevent untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's had the furnace die in the middle of a frigid winter night will advise you it's well worth monitoring and replacing your air filter.

You can buy an air filter at any big box or home improvement store. Just make sure you buy the proper style, as a larger apartment might need a larger air filter than a one-bedroom. You may also like to find out if the maintenance team supplies free replacements. Inspect the filter every month, even if it's supposed to work for 90 days. If you put it in front of a light and can't see through it, that's an obvious indication you’re ready for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lights

There are numerous smart ideas for saving money on monthly bills in Carmel, but some of the favorites is with home lighting. LED bulbs utilize smaller amounts of energy than typical filament bulbs and hold up much longer. If you're worried about the upfront purchase price, don't be. The expense of LED bulbs has decreased significantly over the years, and there are many affordable options.

The benefits here is two-fold, because not only will you reduce energy use, you'll also benefit from not having to get replacement bulbs as frequently. Talk to your apartment’s maintenance staff as they may utilize LED bulbs and furnish you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Echo or Home smart speaker can do more than only play that song you're wanting to listen to? With a smart plug or smart light, you can activate lights through your mobile app or verbal commands.

If you fail to turn a light off, you can do so straight from your phone rather than allowing it to burn the whole day. Or control your energy use even more by scheduling your lights to switch on and off automatically.

These smart and easy solutions offer peace of mind in more scenarios. If you're away visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can set your lights to turn on automatically. You can give the appearance and make it appear that you're home by setting the light to flip on at the usual time you return home.
