Pet-Friendly vs. Pets Allowed: What's the Difference?

In your search for the perfect apartment, have you seen communities list either pet-friendly or pets allowed as features? There’s a difference, and we’re here to break that down for you so you can be sure to select the right place for you and your best friend to call home.

Pet Friendly Apartments

While many apartment communities allow pets, this simply means that your pet can live with you.  There may not be many (or any) amenities to help make your pet comfortable within the community.  


Pet-Friendly communities not only tolerate your pet living with you in your apartment but create a welcoming environment for your pet. When searching for an apartment and touring communities, be sure to look for the following amenities including fenced-in dog parks, walking paths, ample green areas, and pet cleanup stations throughout the community.  

Pet Friendly Apartments in Baltimore

Notice the team and property management’s attitude toward pets – are pets celebrated at the community and warmly welcomed? Check the community or property management’s social media pages and websites to look for clues about how pet-friendly they are. If you see frequent posts with pets, residents and pets, or clear pet policies listed on their website, it’s likely they are truly a pet-friendly community. Be sure to check with any pet-friendly community on specific pet policies, breed restrictions, weight limits, and pet fees or rent.

Today Is National Cut Energy Costs Day – Ways to Save on Your Energy Bill in the Winter

Energy Savings for Apartments & Rental Townhomes

The cold weather is upon us and there are many ways to heat up your home without burning a hole in your wallet.  Here are a few ways you can cut your energy costs this winter.

Energy Savings

As the temperatures begin to drop, heating bills can go up.  You can reduce energy consumption by making simple adjustments within your apartment or townhome. 

·        Schedule an energy audit through the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program.  One of BGE’s Smart Energy inspectors will provide a one-time walk through of your home and find ways you can save money and reduce energy consumption. 

·        Reduce your hot water temperature to 120-degrees Fahrenheit.  If you need assistance with this, contact the service team.

·        Replace lightbulbs around your home with new, energy efficient LED bulbs. 

·        During the day, allow sunlight to illuminate your home so you can keep the lights off.  Be sure to close your curtains and lower blinds as the sun goes down to keep heat in your home.

·        Change your air filters seasonally. Our teams are out for regular air filter changes throughout the year. Contact our service department if you require an additional filter change. 

·        Turn off all electronics when not in use including computers, printers, cable boxes, and phone chargers.  Easily shift everything off by plugging items into a surge protector and shutting the surge protector off. 

·        Clean the coils behind your refrigerator (they can get quite dusty) to increase efficiency and keep your refrigerator running smoothly.

·        Lower the temperature when you’re heading out for the day and raise it when you return. 

 

Reduce Your Water Usage

·        If you notice any water leaks, contact our service department immediately or submit an online service request.

·        Take showers instead of baths and keep them to about 5 minutes.

·        Turn the water off while brushing your teeth.  Two minutes of running water is gallons wasted.

·        Run the dishwasher and laundry machines only when the loads are full.  If you must run a half-load of laundry, be sure to adjust any settings on your washing machine accordingly.

·        When thawing frozen food, avoid using running water.  Plan to thaw food in the refrigerator instead.

·        Use bath towels more than once.  Fewer laundry results in water and energy savings.

 

Other Fun Ways to Save

·        Cook large dinners and take leftovers to lunch for work.  Warming winter soups are perfect for this as you can make a large pot and have enough left over for several days.  Many soups taste better the next day, too!

·        Download the GasBuddy app for your smartphone to scout out the lowest gas prices in the area.
