Save Energy and Money While Staying Comfortable This Winter at Starloftspgh.com

In you StarloftPgh apartment in downtown Pittsburgh manage your comfort and utility bills.

Don’t just set one temperature and forget about it. Get in the habit of turning it down several degrees every night before you go to bed. If you’re like most people, you sleep better in the winter when lying snugly under several blankets. You can’t do that when the furnace is heating the http://www.starloftspgh.com to 75F all night (plus you’ll break the furnace that way).

• Manage the thermostat part 2. If you are away from your apartment and expect to be gone all day, turn down the thermostat before you leave. There’s absolutely no reason to heat an abandoned apartment eight hours every day. Turn the heat back on when you get home.

• Manage the thermostat part 3. Consider using a lower temperature setting for normal daytime and evening hours when the apartment is occupied. Just give 68 degrees a try, rather than 70, 72 or 74. You might find that you become accustomed to the lower temperature setting. If you’re still chilly, throw on an extra layer of clothing. This can save you abundant bucks on your gas and/or electric bills.

• Manage the thermostat part 4. If you have house or apartment partners, have a quick meeting to establish who has the responsibility to manage the thermostat, either all the time or week to week. You definitely want to avoid a situation where two or three people are constantly changing the setting.

• Close doors to unused rooms and shut the heating registers or vents in those rooms. The less space your central heating system has to service, the more efficiently (and cheaply) it can heat the rest of your apartment. However, there’s one caveat to this. If you close up too much of the apartment, your furnace or heat pump likely will short-cycle. This means it quickly heats the “open” parts of the apartmentq, then shuts down. It stops and starts time after time, which itself wastes energy and stresses the equipment. So in general, it’s OK to block heat to one or two bedrooms but not an entire floor.

Have a great day! Janet

Thankfully, RentHop is still getting a great inventory of gems. Today we’ll focus on some of our favorite deals in downtown Pittsburgh this coming December!
