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

Everyone likes to save money on monthly bills in Bloomington, but is it really doable when you live in an apartment? While slashing your rent would be great,, instead, consider your utility expenses.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Bloomington

Replace Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Full air filters force your HVAC system to operate harder and burn more energy. Dusty filters cause a costlier energy bill for you. A clean filter will not only help your HVAC system run more productively, but it will also help prevent untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's had the furnace die in the middle of a cold winter night will advise you it's well worth inspecting and replacing your air filter.

You can purchase an air filter at any chain or home and garden store. Just make certain you get the right kind, as a bigger apartment could use a bigger air filter than a single-bedroom. You may also care to find out if the maintenance team supplies complimentary replacements. Check the filter every month, even if it's estimated to work for 90 days. If you hold it up to a light and are unable to see through it, that's a good sign it's time for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Bulbs

There are numerous smart ideas on saving money on monthly bills in Bloomington, but some of the favorites is with home lighting. LED lights need less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs and hold up much longer. If you're anxious about the upfront purchase cost, don't be. The price of LED bulbs has fallen substantially through the years, and there are numerous inexpensive choices.

The frugality here is two-fold, as not only will you reduce electricity use, you'll also benefit from not needing to buy replacement bulbs as frequently. Talk to your community’s front office team as they might prefer LED bulbs and provide you with them!

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Do you know your Echo or Home smart speaker does more than just play that song you're dying to hear? Using a smart plug or smart light, you can manage lights through verbal commands or your phone app.

If you forget to turn a light off, you can do so right from your phone instead of letting it burn all day. Or limit your energy use even more by putting your lights on a timer to turn on and off automatically.

These high-tech and helpful solutions offer peace of mind in other areas. If you're away on vacation or on a work trip, you can schedule your lights to activate automatically. You can give the appearance and make it appear that you're home by setting the light to come on at the usual time you arrive home.
