Living room in Indianapolis apartment

Everybody likes to save money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but is it feasible when you reside in an apartment? While slashing your monthly rent would be great,, instead, think about your energy bills.

Whether you live in a studio or a three-bedroom apartment, there are several methods you can save money on monthly bills in your Indianapolis apartment.

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Indianapolis

Change Your Furnace Filter and Burn Less Energy

Clogged air filters cause your HVAC system to operate harder and expend more energy. Dirty filters lead to a more expensive energy bill for you. Not only will a fresh filter help your HVAC system work more productively, but it should also help stop premature breakdowns. Anyone who's had the furnace go out in the middle of a cold winter night will say it's well worth checking and switching out your filter.

You can buy an air filter at any chain or hardware store. Just make certain you get the proper size, as a more spacious apartment might require a larger air filter than a single-bedroom. You may also like to see if the maintenance team offers complimentary replacements. Check the filter every month, even if it's estimated to hold up for 90 days. If you put it up to a light and are unable to see through it, that's an excellent sign you’re ready for a replacement.

Smart lights in a Indianapolis apartment

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Bulbs

There are many good ideas on saving money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but some of the favorites is with indoor lighting. LED light bulbs require less electricity than typical filament lights and last much longer. If you're concerned about the initial purchase amount, don't be. The cost of LED bulbs has dropped substantially over the years, and there are several inexpensive choices.

The benefits here is two-fold, as not only will you cut power consumption, you'll also benefit from not having to get replacement bulbs as much. Check in with your apartment’s maintenance staff as they may prefer LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Your New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Do you know your Echo or Home smart speaker do more than only play that song you're wanting to find? With a smart plug or smart light, you can operate lights through your smartphone app or verbal commands.

If you forget to shut off a light you can do so right from the app rather than allowing it to burn the whole day. Or limit your energy use even more by putting your lights on a timer to turn on and off automatically.

These high-tech and helpful solutions offer peace of mind in more scenarios. If you're away on vacation or on a work trip, you can schedule your lights to turn on automatically. You can give the appearance and make it look like you're home by setting the light to come on at the same time you return home.
