New Orleans winters aren’t as harsh as what you’d experience farther north, but with average lows dipping into the 40s, there’s still a distinct chill in the air. Homeowners have to deal with a variety of maintenance concerns throughout the winter months, from keeping the furnace in working order to making sure utility bills stay low.
Opting to rent instead can ease many of the stressors that come with the cold weather season. Consider these compelling reasons to choose a New Orleans rental home this winter.
1. Efficient Central Heating
Apartment homes typically offer comfortable and efficient central heating. This will keep your living space warm with minimal energy expenses. Change your filter once a month and you’ll always have access to fresh, clean air with minimal effort. If something goes wrong, simply turn to the community’s maintenance team. You don’t have to worry about the expense of winter furnace repairs.
2. Well-Placed Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans are as useful for warming your home as they are for cooling it. Our Springs at River Chase apartment homes have spacious nine-foot ceilings that make the living area feel larger and more welcoming. Heat rises, however, and may linger in the upper reaches of your space. Our ceiling fans offer a quick solution to this problem. Set your ceiling fan to move clockwise at a low speed and it will push that warm air back down where you can enjoy it.
3. Energy-Efficient Features
Energy efficiency is important in any season, but it’s a prime concern in winter when you’re thinking about adding the cost of heating to your bills. A well-equipped apartment home can provide you with everything from new, well-sealed windows to energy-efficient appliances. These all work to keep utility bills as low as possible.
4. Washers and Dryers in Your Apartment
Lugging loads of laundry back and forth to the laundromat is never a fun task. It becomes even more challenging when you add the chill of winter weather and the hectic schedules that often accompany the holiday season. Our Springs at Fremaux Town Center apartment community offers washers and dryers in your unit so you can avoid the hazards of winter and handle this regular chore as comfortably and conveniently as possible.
5. Convenient Garage Access
A garage is a wonderful convenience in the winter months. Vehicles stored in a garage will stay warmer, cleaner and safer than those left in an open parking lot. You can also use your garage to stash gifts before the holidays or store your decorations as you’re cleaning up in the new year. Our Springs communities offer options for both attached and detached garages.
