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

Every resident likes to save money on monthly bills in Bloomington, but is it doable when you reside in an apartment? While cutting your monthly rent would be nice,, instead, think about your utility costs.

Whether you reside in a studio or a three-bedroom apartment, there are various ways you can save money on monthly bills in your Bloomington apartment.

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Bloomington

Switch Out Your Furnace Filter and Burn Less Energy

Full air filters make your HVAC system work harder and use more energy. Grimy filters lead to a costlier utility bill for you. Not only will a clean filter make your HVAC system operate more efficiently, but it should also help avoid untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's experienced the heat fail in the middle of a cold winter night will say it's well worth monitoring and changing your air filter.

You can find an air filter at any big box or hardware retailer. Just make sure you purchase the right size, as a bigger apartment could require a larger air filter than a single-bedroom. You might also wish to ask if the maintenance staff supplies free replacements. Inspect the filter each month, even if it's supposed to last for 90 days. If you hold it up to a light and aren’t able to see through it, that's a good sign it's time for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lighting

There are numerous bright ideas about saving money on monthly bills in Bloomington, but one of the best is with indoor lighting. LED light bulbs require a smaller amount of electricity than typical filament bulbs and work much longer. If you're uneasy about the upfront purchase price, don't be. The price of LED bulbs has fallen significantly through the years, and there are lots of cost-effective alternatives.

The benefits here is two-fold, as not only will you limit power consumption, you'll also gain from not needing to get replacement bulbs as much. Check in with your apartment’s maintenance staff as they might utilize LED bulbs and provide you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Echo or Home smart speaker do more than just play that song you're trying to find? Using a smart plug or smart light, you can manage lights through verbal commands or your phone app.

If you fail to turn a light off, you can do so directly from the app rather than letting it burn the entire day. Or control your power consumption even more by programming your lights to switch off and on automatically.

These smart and easy solutions provide peace of mind in more ways. If you're gone on vacation or on a work trip, you can schedule your lights to activate automatically. You can give the illusion and make it appear that you're home by setting the light to flip on at the standard time you arrive home.
