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

Everyone wants to save money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but is it truly doable when you reside in an apartment? While reducing your monthly rent would be great,, instead, consider your energy bills.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Indianapolis

Replace Your Furnace Air Filter and Waste Less Energy

Clogged air filters make your HVAC system work harder and burn more energy. Dusty filters lead to a costlier utility bill for you. A fresh filter will not only let your HVAC system run more productively, but it will also help prevent inconvenient breakdowns. Anyone who's seen the heat go out in the middle of a frigid winter night will advise you it's well worth monitoring and changing your filter.

You can pick up an air filter at any big box or home and garden retailer. Just make sure you purchase the correct kind, as a larger apartment might require a larger air filter than a one-bedroom. You might also like to see if the maintenance staff offers complimentary replacements. Inspect the filter each month, even if it's estimated to work for 90 days. If you hold it in front of a light and aren’t able to see through it, that's an excellent hint it's time for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lighting

There are lots of smart ideas for saving money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but one of the best is with home lighting. LED light bulbs require a smaller amount of energy than typical filament light bulbs and hold up much longer. If you're worried about the initial purchase amount, don't be. The cost of LED bulbs has dropped dramatically over the years, and there are numerous budget-friendly alternatives.

The savings here is two-fold, because not only will you decrease energy waste, you'll also benefit from not needing to buy replacement bulbs as frequently. Check in with your apartment’s office staff as they might prefer LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Do you know your Echo or Home smart speaker can do more than only play that song you're trying to hear? Using a smart light or smart plug, you can activate lights through voice commands or your phone app.

If you forget to shut off a light you may do so right from the app rather than letting it burn the entire day. Or manage your power use even further by putting your lights on a schedule to turn on and off automatically.

These innovative and easy solutions offer peace of mind in other scenarios. If you're gone visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can program 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 usual time you come home.
