Save Your Money. Protect Your Carpet!

Here is something most people take for granted when living in an apartment…Carpets! Carpets are the most expensive items in your apartment.

How Not To Go Over Your Utility Cap

At CHS, we give you a monthly utility cap for electricity spending. Yes, it may sound lame for us to charge you and your roommates if you go over that cap, but here are some things that you can do to help save on your energy costs.

  • Don’t keep your thermostat set on 85 degrees in the winter and 45 degrees in the summer.
  • Seriously, having your apartment double as a sauna or meat locker jacks your electric bill sky high.

Keeping an eye on this not only will help you save some moola, but will help make you a more responsible roommate.
