With summer weather in full force across the country, it’s important that residents living in submetered units are informed about how they can conserve energy and protect their wallets from rising utility costs. Here are a few tips to pass along to residents in your summer marketing materials or at community events.
-Residents can cut their cooling costs by using fans instead of air conditioning and by opening their windows in the evening to increase air flow.
-Window coverings are an affordable way to keep less heat from entering the apartment in the daytime.
-Residents should never try to cool off by standing in front of an open refrigerator or freezer.
-Residents should also avoid using the dryer and oven on hot days to keep your apartment at a more comfortable temperature.
