Everybody looks to save money on monthly bills in Fishers, but is it doable when you inhabit an apartment? While it would be great to cut your monthly rent, instead, think about your energy costs.

Whether you inhabit a studio or a three-bedroom apartment, there are numerous methods you can save money on monthly bills in your Fishers apartment.

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Fishers

Switch Out Your Air Filter and Waste Less Energy

Full air filters make your HVAC system run harder and expend more energy. Dusty filters mean a higher utility bill for you. A fresh filter will not only let your HVAC system work more efficiently, but it should also help prevent untimely malfunctions. Anyone who's had the heater fail in the middle of a cold winter night will say it's well worth checking and replacing your air filter.

You can purchase an air filter at any big box or home and garden retailer. Just ensure you get the correct kind, as a more spacious apartment could use a bigger air filter than a single-bedroom. You may also like to find out if the maintenance staff provides complimentary replacements. Look at the filter each month, even if it's designed to work for 90 days. If you hold it in front of a light and aren’t able to see through it, that's a good hint you’re ready for a replacement.

Smart lights in a Fishers apartment

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lights

There are lots of smart ideas on saving money on monthly bills in Fishers, but one of the favorites is with home lighting. LED bulbs utilize smaller amounts of electricity than common incandescent lights and hold up much longer. If you're uneasy about the upfront purchase amount, don't be. The cost of LED bulbs has dropped dramatically through the years, and there are numerous affordable alternatives.

The benefits here is two-fold, as not only will you cut power consumption, you'll also benefit from not having to buy replacement bulbs as much. Talk to your unit’s maintenance team as they might utilize LED bulbs and provide you with them!

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Do you know your Google Home or Amazon Echo can do more than just play that song you're trying to listen to? Using a smart light or smart plug, you can operate lights through your phone app or voice commands.

If you neglect to turn a light off, you can do so straight from the app rather than letting it burn the entire day. Or control your energy use even more by setting your lights to switch on and off automatically.

These high-tech and helpful solutions give peace of mind in other situations. 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 appear that you're home by setting the light to flip on at the normal time you arrive home.
