When I became a landlord, I was focused on lowering my costs as much as possible. I did my research and discovered that one of the best ways to do that would be to invest in higher-quality electronics that didn't consume as much power. I was really impressed with a few of the appliances on the market, and so I invested in them for my apartment building. After tenants moved in, they offered a lot of compliments for how well their appliances were working. It was awesome to see myself saving so much money on something that would otherwise go down the drain. Check out this blog for much more information on energy and environmentally-friendly practices.
