Apartment Sharing Tips

Living away from home can take some getting used to. What’s more, sharing an apartment with people you don’t (or sometimes do) know can present its own set of challenges.

Check out our sharing tips for suggested ways to make the transition a little easier! And remember, we’re here to help you, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns.

Electricity Saving Tips

  1. The heater in your living room is a combined storage and convector heater. It provides best efficiency if the storage switch is left on continually as opposed to using the instant switch. The storage option is designed to take in half price electricity during the night and release heat throughout the day.
  2. The heater in your bedroom is a convector heater providing instant heat. It is advisable to leave the heater on a timer for a number of slots throughout the day. If you only turn on infrequently most of the energy consumed will be absorbed by the cold surroundings such as walls, furniture etc. before the unit can start heating the room.
  3. Hot water for the apartment is best used on the timer setting. Agree with your housemates a reasonable schedule and set it to come on an hour before the first person is likely to get up in the morning, perhaps leave it off for most of the day while you are all out at classes. If you switch the heater on to constant always remember to turn it back to timer afterwards.
