Everyone looks to save money on monthly bills in Carmel, but is it truly doable when you reside in an apartment? While it would be nice to cut your lease, instead, consider your utility costs.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Carmel

Switch Out Your Furnace Filter and Burn Less Energy

Clogged air filters force your HVAC system to operate harder and expend more energy. Dirty filters lead to a higher utility bill for you. A clean filter will not only let your HVAC system work better, but it can also help stop untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's experienced the furnace fail in the middle of a cold winter night will say it's well worth inspecting and switching out your air filter.

You can find an air filter at any chain or home and garden retailer. Just ensure you purchase the correct kind, as a bigger apartment might need a bigger air filter than a one-bedroom. You may also want to see if the maintenance staff supplies complimentary replacements. Inspect the filter every month, even if it's designed to hold up for 90 days. If you put it up to a light and can't see through it, that's an excellent hint you’re ready for a replacement.

Smart lights in a Carmel apartment

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Bulbs

There are numerous good ideas for saving money on monthly bills in Carmel, but some of the best is with indoor lighting. LED lights use smaller amounts of energy than traditional filament light bulbs and hold up much longer. If you're anxious about the initial purchase cost, don't be. The expense of LED bulbs has decreased substantially over the years, and there are many budget-friendly choices.

The benefits here is two-fold, because not only will you cut power use, you'll also gain from not needing to purchase replacement bulbs as often. Check in with your community’s front office team as they might utilize LED bulbs and provide you with them!

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Amazon Echo or Google Home can do more than only play that song you're dying to find? Using a smart light or smart plug, you can activate lights through verbal commands or your mobile app.

If you fail to switch off a light you may do so right from the app instead of allowing it to burn the whole day. Or manage your utility waste even further by putting your lights on a timer to turn on and off automatically.

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