Apartment Living a More Efficient Way
You have been feeling the brutal bite from the winter hawk this season haven’t you? Oh boy, we all have. It’s important to make sure that you don’t try to over heat your apartment or misuse any of your utilities. Here are three things that you can do in order to help save energy and money on your monthly bills.
- Set your thermostat at 68 degrees during the day and 60 degrees at night. You can save 3 percent on your heating costs for every degree you reduce the temperature below 70 degrees.
- Winterize windows with weather stripping (for all moveable joints) and caulk (for non-moving parts). Also, install a window kit to the inside of your windows to help keep cold air out and warm air in.
- Make sure that your filters get changed every month. If you live in a home you’ll have to do this yourself.
