Every resident wants to save money on monthly bills in Fishers, but is it truly possible when you reside in an apartment? While cutting your monthly rent would be pleasant,, instead, consider your energy bills.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Fishers

Change Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Full air filters force your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy. Dusty filters lead to a more expensive energy bill for you. Not only will a clean filter make your HVAC system operate more efficiently, but it can also help stop premature breakdowns. Anyone who's experienced the heat go out in the middle of a cold winter night will tell you it's well worth checking and changing your air filter.

You can buy an air filter at any chain or home and garden store. Just make sure you get the right size, as a bigger apartment may demand a bigger air filter than a one-bedroom. You may also wish to find out if the maintenance staff offers complimentary replacements. Check the filter every month, even if it's rated to hold up for 90 days. If you hold it in front of a light and are unable to see through it, that's a good indication it's time for a replacement.

Smart lights in a Fishers apartment

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Bulbs

There are lots of smart ideas about saving money on monthly bills in Fishers, but some of the favorites is with indoor lighting. LED lights require a smaller amount of power than traditional filament bulbs and hold up much longer. If you're anxious about the upfront purchase cost, don't be. The expense of LED bulbs has dropped substantially through the years, and there are many budget-friendly alternatives.

The frugality here is two-fold, as not only will you reduce power waste, you'll also benefit from not needing to buy replacement bulbs as frequently. Check with your community’s front office team as they might utilize LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Did you know your Echo or Home smart speaker does more than just play that song you're dying to hear? With a smart light or smart plug, you can manage lights through verbal commands or your mobile app.

If you forget to turn a light off, you may do so right from your phone rather than letting it burn the whole day. Or control your energy consumption even further by putting your lights on a timer to switch off and on automatically.

These smart and convenient solutions offer peace of mind in additional scenarios. If you're 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 flip on at the usual time you come home.
