Everyone looks to save money on monthly bills in Fishers, but is it feasible when you inhabit an apartment? While slashing your lease would be pleasant,, instead, think about your utility costs.

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

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Fishers

Replace Your Air Filter and Burn Less Energy

Full air filters make your HVAC system work harder and burn more energy. Dirty filters lead to a costlier utility bill for you. A new filter will not only help your HVAC system work better, but it will also help prevent premature breakdowns. Anyone who's experienced the heater go out in the middle of a frigid winter night will tell you it's well worth checking and changing your filter.

You can buy an air filter at any big box or home improvement retailer. Just make certain you buy the right kind, as a bigger apartment might demand a larger air filter than a one-bedroom. You may also wish to see if the maintenance staff offers free replacements. Inspect the filter each month, even if it's supposed to hold up for 90 days. If you put it in front of a light and are unable to see through it, that's an excellent hint you’re ready for a replacement.

Smart lights in a Fishers apartment

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Bulbs

There are many bright ideas about saving money on monthly bills in Fishers, but one of the best is with indoor lighting. LED bulbs use smaller amounts of power than common incandescent light bulbs and last much longer. If you're concerned about the upfront purchase amount, don't be. The expense of LED bulbs has decreased substantially over the years, and there are lots of affordable alternatives.

The frugality here is two-fold, because not only will you reduce energy consumption, you'll also benefit from not needing to get replacement bulbs as much. Check in with your community’s maintenance team as they may prefer LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Echo or Home smart speaker do more than just play that song you're trying to listen to? Using a smart plug or smart light, you can control lights through voice commands or your mobile app.

If you fail to turn a light off, you can do so straight from the app rather than allowing it to burn all day. Or manage your power waste even further by programming your lights to turn on and off automatically.

These innovative and easy solutions offer peace of mind in additional areas. If you're away visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can schedule your lights to come on automatically. You can give the illusion and make it appear that you're home by setting the light to come on at the same time you arrive home.
