An Efficient Apartment
Many people have noticed that there are all kinds of great ideas on how to have an energy efficient home but there is not a lot of information on how to do the same for an apartment. The truth is, you do not own your apartment and so there are several things you just aren’t allowed to do as far as retrofitting and refurbishing goes.
Steps To Become Energy Efficient
One of the number one things to do if you own an apartment is to install a portable ceiling fan to circulate the air in the important. By doing this you can have the air conditioner set at a warmer setting while still feeling cool. This will save a tremednous amount of electricity and money. The next step is to install radiant barrier over windows you do not use or look out in the apartment. You can place a nice window curtain in front of it so that people from the street do not see a big foil covering on your window. This will knock out 98% of the radiant heat that comes through your window and will save you even more in energy bill money.
