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

Every resident wants to save money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but is it truly possible when you live in an apartment? While it would be great to slash your rent, instead, consider your energy expenses.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Indianapolis

Replace Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Plugged up air filters force your HVAC system to work harder and burn more energy. Dirty filters mean a more expensive utility bill for you. Not only will a fresh filter make your HVAC system work better, but it should also help prevent inconvenient breakdowns. Anyone who's seen the heat go out in the middle of a cold winter night will say it's well worth inspecting and changing your filter.

You can buy an air filter at any big box or hardware retailer. Just ensure you purchase the proper size, as a bigger apartment might take a larger air filter than a one-bedroom. You might also wish to see if the maintenance team supplies their own replacements. Check the filter each month, even if it's supposed to work for 90 days. If you hold it in front of a light and can't see through it, that's an excellent indication you’re ready for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Bulbs

There are lots of bright ideas about saving money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but one of the best is with interior lighting. LED bulbs require less electricity than common filament bulbs and last much longer. If you're uneasy about the first purchase price, don't be. The cost of LED bulbs has dropped dramatically through the years, and there are many budget-friendly choices.

The frugality here is two-fold, as not only will you decrease energy waste, you'll also benefit from not needing to get replacement bulbs as frequently. Talk to your unit’s office team as they may use LED bulbs and provide you with them!

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Google Home or Amazon Echo can do more than only play that song you're wanting to hear? With a smart light or smart plug, you can control lights through your phone app or voice commands.

If you neglect to turn a light off, you can do so directly from the app rather than allowing it to burn the whole day. Or limit your power use even further by scheduling your lights to switch on and off automatically.

These innovative and helpful solutions offer peace of mind in additional ways. If you're away visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can set your lights to activate automatically. You can give the illusion and make it look like you're home by setting the light to come on at the standard time you come home.
