Living in one of Western National Property’s eco-friendly apartment rentals in South Orange County is good for the planet and good for your wallet. So you can feel good every time you come home. Check out these great benefits that come with embracing an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Save on heating and cooling bills while staying comfortable during the extreme seasons. Many eco-friendly apartments are weatherized which makes them more energy-efficient. Newer windows keeps the outside air outdoors so it doesn’t leak inside and create unwanted temperature changes which cuts down on utility bills.
Use water-saving faucets on your kitchen sink and shower head to cut back on water. The technology used in creating these water-saving faucets are so good now that you no longer have to sacrifice water pressure to be more eco-friendly. Plus, they still cut down on the water bill and help conserve one of the world’s most precious resources.
Energy efficient lighting keeps your electric bills down, and is one of the easiest eco-friendly apartment living solutions. Every big chain retail store carries compact fluorescent lightbulbs and LED light fixtures that save a lot of energy when they’re turned on. You can also make a big difference in your energy bill by remembering to turn lights off and unplugging electronics from wall outlets when you leave a room.
Appliances like the refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove can take a lot of energy to run. However, these appliances can be replaced with Energy-Star appliances that cut back on their power usage. Even a more eco-friendly water heater and air conditioning unit can make a huge impact on energy bills.
Keep your apartment set to the perfect temperature without wasting energy by using a programmable thermostat. These devices are easy to use and they can save you a lot money. Set the thermostat to run only when you know you’ll be home. Leave it off during the workday while you’re away so it isn’t constantly running and wasting energy.
