Top Ways to Save Energy at Our Apartments in Lady Lake, Florida

Everyone loves to save money, and there are several excellent techniques that you can use to reap the financial savings of conserving energy while also helping to save the planet. Here are some excellent energy-saving tips that you can practice right from your apartment home at The Quarters:

  • Use the weather to your advantage. Instead of cranking the thermostat up and down constantly, use the sunlight and ambient temperature to control the climate inside your home. For example, if it’s warm outside, close the blinds and windows to keep rooms cool, and if there’s cool spring or fall weather outside, you can open the doors and turn off the air conditioning.
  • Use appliances prudently. Only use the dishwasher and washing machine when they are full.
  • Remember to turn off lights when you leave a room, even if you use energy-efficient bulbs.
  • Turn off televisions, sound systems, computers, video game consoles, and other electricity-hungry devices when not in use.
  • Unplug any corded chargers for laptops or phones when they are not being used, as they can slowly drain energy even when not connected to a device. While this represents a fairly small energy savings, it will be noticeable over time.
  • Finally, if you leave your apartment for an extended period of time, set the air conditioning to a higher temperature, but do not turn it off. If you do shut it off, the system will have to struggle to restore a cool temperature to a very warm home when you return, and this will more than negate any savings you might have earned by turning it off in the first place. Turning off the air conditioner also puts extra stress on the unit when it’s forced to work overtime upon your return home.

Putting these tips into use at our apartments in Lady Lake, Florida, will help you to save money while reducing your impact on the environment. To learn more about the many features and amenities of our apartment community here at The Quarters, contact our leasing office today.
