How to Find The Best Apartment for You

Wondering how to find the best apartment for you? While the idea of the “best” apartment certainly varies from person to person, these tips should help you find the apartment that suits you to a “T.”

Know thyself
Before you can figure out how to find the best apartment, you’ve got to know yourself — your home lifestyle, that is. A good way to start an apartment search is to think about how your lifestyle affects your apartment needs. Ask yourself: what kind of apartment dweller are you? Do you need a quiet apartment where you can relax or study all day long? Or do you need a place to rest your head at night in between work and an active social life?

When you consider how your lifestyle affects your apartment needs, think about the following factors:

  • Rental price. How much money is in your budget for living expenses? How much can you put towards rent after you pay other life expenses?
  • Work. Do you work 9 to 5? Are you in school? How far from work do you want to live?
  • Space. Can you fit everything in a small studio apartment? Or do you need several bedrooms to accommodate your family?
  • Children. Where is your child’s school located? Is there a safe place for your kids to play outside?
  • Social life. What do you do for recreation? Do you like to be near restaurants and shops? Do you like the outdoors?
  • Transportation. Do you drive everywhere? Bike? Use public transportation?
  • Pets. Where will you walk your dog? How many times a day do you take your dog outside?

All of these questions will help you pinpoint exactly what you need and want in an apartment, which is important. In any given city, you’ll likely have a number of apartment hunting options, so it’s best to know what you want before you search — that way you stay focused and don’t get overwhelmed by choices.

Set apartment hunting priorities
The next step in finding the best apartment is to set apartment hunting priorities. Once you know what you need from your next apartment, it’s good to get all of your needs and wants down on paper. As you start your apartment search, you can refer to this list to ensure you only consider apartments that meet your criteria.

Organize your apartment search
Once you determine the location, amenities and price that make up the best apartment for you, an important way to make sure you get what you want is to stay organized. That means planning your moving schedule, taking detailed notes while you are on apartment visits and keeping all of the related paperwork in one handy place. Creating an apartment search file is a good way to stay on top of all of the brochures, references and applications you’re going to accumulate. You can also check out the Apartment Guide Apartment Search Checklist to make sure you do not forget any important steps during your search.

Give yourself an advantage over other apartment hunters
Keep in mind that while you’re apartment hunting, so are many others. In areas where competition for the best apartments is stiff, you can give yourself a leg up on other renters. First, have all of your references and application items ready to go so that when you do find the apartment of your dreams, you’ll be ready to submit an application on the spot. You’ll likely also need to have your checkbook with you so can write a check for the application and security deposit. (In many apartment communities, your new rental is not a “done deal” until you’ve handed over this money.)

Take this well-prepared approach to apartment hunting, and you’ll likely find a great apartment in no time. With a bit of research and organization, it may be easier than you imagined to find the best apartment just waiting for you.

Top 10: Ways to use less electricity and save money

by Simon Moynihan

This week I decided to go for a totally unscientific top ten list. Well, when I say unscientific, I mean the order of the list. There’s perfectly good science behind these ideas but if you think number 10 is a better idea than number 1, I won’t argue. And of course, if you have any of your own to add, please let me know through the comments below.

So on to the top ten ways to use less electricity and save money in your home…

10. Use your dishwasher!
It’s true! Your dishwasher is more efficient than you. In fact, a full dishwasher uses less than half the energy you do when washing dishes by hand and uses gallons less water too. In fact, a dishwasher is so much more efficient than a comparable person doing the same job that you should pop the pots and pans in as well – and know that you’re not just saving money; you’re doing your bit for the environment too!

9. Don’t settle for estimates, provide your own readings
The ESB reads all electricity meters regardless of whether you have Bord Gais, Airtricity or ESB as your supplier. The thing is, they’ll only come out to read your meter four times a year. And if your meter isn’t read or the ESB can’t get to it because you’re not home, you’ll get an estimated bill. It’s easy to tell if you’re bill has been estimated – it’ll have a big “E” after your meter reading.

Providing a meter reading to your supplier is easy – you can do it online or over the phone and your bill will be automatically adjusted. You usually have two weeks to provide a reading if your bill is an estimate. There’s no point in paying for more than you’ve used. This is especially helpful if you’ve been away or you’re using less than you usually do.

8. Find out how much you use
The average household in Ireland spends about €1000 on electricity and standing charges per year, or 5590 units. Of course, nobody is average so it’s a good idea to find out how much you use. The easiest way to do this is call your supplier and ask. Read your meter before you call and they’ll be able to tell you how many units you’ve used in the last year. Once you know how much your household uses, you have a benchmark you can measure against if you plan on reducing your consumption. And then…

7. Get an electricity monitor and find out which gadgets are the biggest energy hogs
Electricity monitors are becoming more and more popular and their manufacturers reckon you can knock at least 10% off your bill if you know which gadgets and appliances are using the most energy. They are pretty simple – a little clip goes around the mains cable at your meter and tells the monitor how much electricity you’re using in real time. If you turn on the kettle or the dryer, you can see the numbers on the monitor jump. What surprises most people is the other stuff that uses lots of energy.

When I got a monitor, the biggest surprises were the electric shower (by far the biggest electricity hog in the house), the microwave, and all the stuff connected to my TV. Now if I’m not using the xbox, it stays off, and if I’m not watching TV, I turn everything connected to it off at the mains.

You can get wireless electricity monitors cheaply in electrical shops or online, and I’ve had lots of fun walking around the house with it while switching stuff on and off. Owl is the most popular brand and they sell for about €30. I think mine has paid for itself already.

6. Get online billing
I love online billing for everything because if you’re like me, you get mountains of post and rarely have time to go through it all. Bord Gais and Airtricity have online billing and offer discounts if you don’t get your bills in the post – but that wasn’t the only selling point for me. Online billing is simple, your bills are archived, you can see charts of your consumption, and you can enter meter readings online. Easy, less hassle, and the discounts save you money.

5. More efficient appliances
If it’s time to replace a fridge or washing machine, it’s a good idea to look energy ratings. Most modern appliances are more efficient than older models, but the rating will help you choose the most efficient model. The ratings, which are compulsory now, range from A to G with A being the most efficient, but I think the most valuable piece of information is the actual amount of electricity that is used per cycle or per hour. Some modern washing machines and dishwashers can do a full load for less than one unit. If you wash a load a day, it could save you €60 per year compared to older models – which should pay for your new washer in just a few years!

4. Consider a Nightsaver meter
If you think you can shift more than 20 per cent of your electricity consumption from the daytime to the middle of the night a Nightsaver tariff is a great way to save money. You’ll need to get a Nightsaver meter, which the ESB will install for free, then you’ll get half price electricity at night. You’ll pay a little more for your daytime unit rates and your standing charge will be a little higher, but if you use more than 20 per cent at night you’ll rack up the savings.

A few easy ways to shift some usage overnight is to get plug timers for your dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and make sure that your immersion is well insulated and set to heat water overnight. Just those items will shift enough of your usage to the cheap rate to make it worthwhile.

3. Make sure your immersion is properly insulated
We all know this, but it’s a biggie. Heating water uses more energy than anything else in your home and can account for half of your annual electricity costs. You can reduce your water heating costs by up to 30% just by properly insulating your tank. A good 3-inch thick lagging jacket will pay for itself in no time and save you a bundle.

2. Low energy light bulbs
Like the immersion, we know that they’ll save us money but most of us don’t know exactly how much of an impact they will have. A low energy bulb uses more than five times less electricity than a standard bulb. If you’re spending a euro a day on lighting, it’ll cost you 20 cent with low energy bulbs.

1. Switch!
If you’ve managed to dismiss Bord Gais’s “Big Switch” campaign, and Airtricity’s “5 Weeks Free” offer has fallen on deaf ears – I’ll throw in my two cent – switching is still the quickest and easiest way to reduce your electricity bills. Why pay more than you have to for something you have to pay for anyway?

Floor Cleaning Robot – CrestWind Apartments Repost

by Paul G. Githaiga

With the rapid technological advances today, the use of automated and robotic technology to simplify our everyday household processes is becoming more common. There are many products in the market aimed at performing certain chores around the house. One of the most important chores being taken over by robots is the process of cleaning the floor. There are many brands of floor cleaning robots available in the market with different features and quality.

Robotic floor cleaners are set to become common features in our homes due to the popularity and advances in technology. One of the most advanced and widely used brands in the market is the Mint Floor Cleaning Robot, which is produced by Evolution Robotics. These robotic cleaners work in the same way as the robotic vacuum cleaners. The key difference is, they actually mop and scrub the floor. It is no wonder they are becoming so popular. Mopping and scrubbing the floor is one of the most hated and tedious chores in the house and anything that would lessen the burden of doing this would be a very welcome addition into the home.

A popular feature of this robot is the ability to clean all types of floor surfaces, be it hardwood floors, tiles, or even laminate flooring. It is designed to sweep up dirt and dust, as well as mop. Its small size allows it to clean under the furniture, as well as hard to reach areas. It is also square in shape, allowing it to efficiently clean corners. In contrast to most other brands of floor cleaners, the Mint Floor Cleaning Robot uses disposable cloths to wipe and clean hard floor surfaces. The cleaning cloths can be used numerous times, and are bought from Mint. It is also important to note that this cleaning robot is able to use almost any brand of disposable cloths. In order to be used again, the disposable cloths can be washed, and then reused.

Maintenance of this robot is easier, since no dust or dirt particles are sucked up. While in operation, this cleaning robot is very quiet. This is a very attractive feature, as it will not distract people. You may decide to take a nap while the robot is cleaning; this will be possible because of its low noise levels. The robot can also be programmed to return to a certain designated area after it finishes cleaning the floor and to switch off automatically. This is not only convenient, it also serves to save the battery charge, thus requiring less charging time, and as a result, less power is consumed, allowing savings to be made on the power expenses.

The navigation system used by the robot allows it to clean more efficiently, as it enables the robot to move in straight lines, and guides it around obstacles, including rugs, furniture, and carpets. It also navigates it around areas already cleaned by mapping the areas where it has passed over. It can also create a map of about 1,000 square feet when using dry cleaning cloths, and 250 square feet when in mopping mode.

Floor cleaning robots are making everyday floor cleaning processes easier, and more enjoyable.

How to Repair a Wobbly Pedestal Table

by Wade Shaddy, Demand Media

Almost all tables supported on a single pedestal are delicate. They are top-heavy and can sometimes lack adequate bracing. In addition, they get tipped over, furthering their inevitable demise, and they get wobbly. This is a common problem that happens to almost all small end tables with a single pedestal. It happens to a lesser degree with larger dining tables, which usually have more support, larger posts and a better design. If the you have a pedestal table that acts as if it were drunk, wobbling back and forth, perform an intervention. Get it some help.

  1. Tip the table upside down. Examine it for loose plates, screws or brackets. If you find any, tighten them using a drill/driver. If the screw is stripped, drill another hole beside it using a 3/32-inch drill bit and drill/driver. If there’s a metal plate or bracket, use the same bit to drill through it too; it will work fine.
  2. Place 1 1/4-inch screws in all the new holes and drive them in tight. Examine the remaining doweled or mortised parts. Look for joints where two pieces of wood are joined together. There may be feet on the end of the pedestal. There will be joints where the feet are attached.
  3. Drill through every joint using a 3/8-inch brad-tipped drill bit. Drill diagonally through the joint at any angle. If the joint is too thick to drill all the way through, just drill into the joint to a depth of at least 1 1/2-inch. If the joint is more than 3 inches in diameter, drill another hole in it from an opposing angle.
  4. Inject glue into all the holes. Tap a 3/8-by-3-inch spiral-cut dowel into all the holes. Use a hammer to tap the dowel so that it protrudes out both sides of the hole on smaller joints. Tap it in until it stops on larger joints. Allow the glue to dry for 24 hours.
  5. Cut off the protruding ends of the dowels using a coping saw. Sand the rough end of the dowel using 100-grit sandpaper. Color the ends of the dowels to match the existing stain using a stain marker.

Things You Will Need
  • Drill/driver
  • 3/32-inch drill bit
  • 1 1/4-inch wood screws
  • 3/8-inch brad-tipped bit
  • Glue
  • 3/8-by-3-inch spiral-cut dowels
  • Hammer
  • Coping saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Stain marker

Tip

  • If possible, depending on the configuration of the pedestal, try to get clamps on the joints. It’s not always possible, but it can help to bond the joints together.

Warning

  • Wear safety glasses when working with wood.
