Invest in Window Treatments
When you’re trying to save money on your electricity bill, one of the easiest is to invest in window treatments. If anything, it will keep the sun from coming through your windows. Try curtains, blinds, and other methods for controlling the amount of natural sunlight coming through your windows.
Update Your Weathering Strips
Like 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.
