Stay Cool Without Making Your Electricity Bill Skyrocket—Follow These Suggestions!

Has staying at your apartment home more often during the COVID-19 pandemic led to higher utility bills? Here are a few tips to help you beat the heat, keep your apartment cooler, and save money while staying at home significantly more often:

Invest in Window Treatments

When you’re trying to save money on your electricity bill, one of the easiest ways to keep your users from going through the roof is investing in window treatments. If anything, you should keep the sun from coming through your windows at all costs. Try curtains, blinds, and other methods for controlling the amount of natural sunlight coming through your windows.

Update Your Weathering Strips

As window treatments, replacing bad or worn out weathering strips on your doors is another great way to keep cool air in your apartment home (and heat during the wintertime). You can easily purchase these items from a local Lowe’s or The Home Depot at a low cost.

Rely on Your Ceiling Fan

A ceiling fan (or floor fan, if you’re willing to purchase one) are great tools in helping you cut down your energy costs. This way, you can keep air circulating through your main living spaces and bedroom, without having to rely on central air or an even costlier window unit.
