Saving Energy This Winter

Whether you’re hoping to ease your impact on the planet or just want to save a few dollars, reducing your energy use can help you get there. Heating and cooling your home/apartment can be among the more expensive components of your utility bill. Making some easy adjustments in your home with these tips can reduce how much you spend on energy.

  •  Use the sun for free heat. That bright orb in the sky should be the focus of temperature control in your residence throughout the year. Open the curtains on your south-facing windows during winter days to bring free heat into your home. Close your window coverings when the sun goes down to keep the heat inside.
  • Bundle up with warm accessories. This is one of the easiest ways to save on your heating bill. Instead of turning the heat up, put on a cozy winter sweater and warm socks. Keep throw blankets on your couch, and add an area rug to insulate the floor.
  • Adjust the thermostat at night. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save about 10 percent per year on your heating bills by turning your thermostat down 10 to 15 degrees for eight hours. Consider investing in flannel sheets and a warm comforter for your bed and keeping your apartment cooler when you sleep.
  • Decorate with LED lights for the holidays. Buy new LED holiday lights, which use at least 75 percent less energy and last 25 times longer than older, incandescent lighting. In addition to consuming less energy, LED lights don’t emit as much heat and are more resistant to breakage, making them a safer alternative. Bonus tip: Always unplug your holiday lights before going to bed or leaving the house. As with all appliances and electronics, your holiday lights will continue to draw power even when not in use, which adds unnecessary expense to utility bills.

We hope these tips will help this winter season and thank you for stopping by!

Cooler Weather

  • Image result for fall leaves clip art

In November we will definitely see cooler weather. It tends to come slower her in Southern Utah, as it sometimes happens. Because of this, we encourage our tenants to be aware of their responsibility to keep the furnace/air filters clean, to keep the yards clear of leaves and other debris, all hoses are disconnected from outside faucets and that those outside faucets are covered to prevent freezing and to ensure that windows are in good working order.

Everyone benefits when simple steps are taken to ensure that the property where you live is prepared for winter.

Making Your House A Home

Although this is now your home, it is still not your property. What is very important is that you do not alter your residence permanently or physically without permission. Find other ways you can make changes without altering the property.

Use Area Rugs
Consider buying an area rug that will produce the look that you like and lessen the existing color scheme. Just make sure that the underside of the carpet will not damage the existing flooring – you may need to use an appropriate carpet pad. Also, ensure that the area rug will not cause someone a possible injury by sliding, slipping, or rolling.

Use Mirrors
Perhaps the room looks small; strategically hanging mirrors can make a room seem larger. Use them to reflect an interesting object or plant. If you have a heavy mirror (or any object), check with your property manager on what is the proper method to hang it without causing damage.

Use Plants
Plants are not only a great way to add color and decoration, but can improve your health because they improve air quality. Make sure they have the right light, are watered regularly, and sit in waterproof containers that do not leak onto flooring or furniture.

Your residence does not have to look like a “rental.” With some time, thought, and a few dollars, you can give a house “your personal look” and make it your home.
