The Ultimate Guide to Saving on Your Electricity Bill for Apartment Renters

Ahorro de energía

Honest disclosure: we spend a lot of time talking to homeowners.

And sorry – we don’t give people living in apartments enough air time.

Here are some tips for you to increase your energy savings:

  1. Use lights only when you need them
  2. Replace incandescent bulbs with CFLs…even if you know you’re not going to stay for a long time in your current apartment
  3. In a fixture with multiple lights, do not use CFLs and incandescent bulbs – the heat from the incandescents dramatically reduces the life of CFLs
  4. Dust your lamps and light fixtures regularly so they give off their maximum brightness
  5. Portable/baseboard electric heaters eat a lot of energy. Wear thicker clothing during the winter and turn them low.
  6. Curtains and window shades help keep the heat in during winter so you don’t have to use as much electric energy heating your apartment.
  7. Turn the computer off if you’re going to be away from it for more than an hour…and do the same with your printer.
  8. Watch every other electric device in your apartment, and turn them off too because they use standby power when plugged in.
  9. Let frozen foods thaw slightly before you cook them.
  10. Use smaller appliances in place of bigger ones. For example, cook with your microwave rather than your oven when you can.
  11. To keep your food both safe and cold, keep your fridge at 36-42°, and your freezer at 0°. Using any more energy than that is just a waste.
  12. Washing your dishes by hand saves much more total energy versus using the dishwasher.
  13. Limit the length of your shower or bath. Maybe even shower or bathe at the gym as often as possible!
  14. Are you a really good tenant? Ask your landlord to buy an energy-efficient fridge or microwave. Good tenants can often get what they want.
  15. Live on the second floor? Open up your windows when it’s cooler out to circulate as much cool air as possible.

Apartment renters – we didn’t forget about you! Hope this helps you save some money so you can buy your own home.

Long term customer

I have enjoyed the service for 2 years now. In the beginning this service was planned to be temporary but with the service being so effective for me i decided to keep it for the long haul. I’m a happy customer.
