Going “Green” at Your Mount Dora Apartment
Apartment renters looking to reduce energy consumption and minimize their environmental impact can explore a number of different options. Some methods are simple to implement into everyday routines, and even ones that may seem complicated at first may be easier than one might think once they are incorporated into everyday life.
So, any apartment resident looking to reduce their energy consumption and environmental impact may want to try some of these easy tips:
Unplug any electronics or appliances when not in use, such as the TV, microwave, or video game consoles to conserve energy.
Turn off the water when brushing teeth and in between rinsing to conserve water.
Take quick showers instead of baths, as they require far less water.
Install compact fluorescent light bulbs and change out old light bulbs for longer lasting performance and reduced energy consumption.
Turn off lights and electronics in rooms that are not currently being used (tip: purchasing power strips can make it possible to turn off several appliances or electronics all at once).
Close blinds on sunny days to help keep the apartment cool and reduce the strain on the HVAC system to keep a comfortable indoor temperature.
The Department of Energy website, https://www.energy.gov/, is another great source of information for apartment renters looking to reduce their energy consumption and “go green.” The site is updated regularly with articles and information on reducing energy use and other advances in the industry.
