6 Ways to Save on Your Apartment Energy Bill this Spring

We all dread seeing that gas and electric bill come in the mail each month. Now that spring is here and the warmer weather is arriving, we can start turning off those heating sources and start saving a little bit of money. In addition to turning your heat off, here are 5 ways YOU can save on energy in your apartment this spring.

Even though you’re not using them, having them plugged in still uses some energy.
