Easy Ways to Lower your Utility Bill

August 15, 2018

If you choose to stay in an Interim Homes apartment you won’t have to worry about paying that utility bill every month. We include all utilities in our monthly rates but we wanted to share some energy saving tips on how to keep the utility bill low, whether its in your apartment or home. Here are 3 easy tips you can implement today!

1. Using the shades or blinds! Keeping the blinds shut in the Summer to keep rooms cool and having the blinds open in the Winter to let in the warm sunlight!
2. Turning off all electronic devices when you go to bed or leave for the day. Phone, computer, tablet, etc. chargers use energy when they’re still plugged into the wall and not charging a device.
3. Keeping air vents free from dust or grime. Most of the apartment complexes clean these regularly but keeping up with the dust can improve airflow and reducing the amount of energy exerted.

For any additional tips on how to keep your utility bill low check with your energy provider to maximize your savings as much as possible!
