Southern Oaks, our apartments in Stone Mountain, GA, offers you a ton of great amenities at a good price. We know that the economy is tight right now and everyone is looking for ways to save money. Have you thought about ways to cut back on your energy use? Some of you are probably already energy conscious, but here are a few tips you might not have known.


Use these tips to save energy and money.

  • We all know not to leave lights on when we’re not using them, but did youknow that just by changing the type of light bulb you use can save energy and cash? Try LED lights or fluorescent bulbs. They do cost a few bucks more, but they last for a very long time.
  • If you aren’t using something electrical, unplug it. Many people don’t know that these appliances and devices are still using electricity even when powered down.
  • Don’t “fiddle” with your thermostat. Keep it at one temperature all the time so that your air conditioner or heating unit doesn’t have to work twice as hard.
