Save Energy in Your Anaheim Apartment with Smart Power Strips

April 16th, 2014

Our LEED-certified, green apartments in Anaheim exceed some of the strictest environmental laws in this country, so if you’ve decided to live here, chances are you’ve adopted a green lifestyle, too. Sustainable living applies to every aspect of our lives, including the energy we use to run our homes. One way of decreasing our carbon footprint is by making sure our appliances, entertainment systems, and office equipment aren’t leeching energy when they’re not in use.

Different types of “Smart” Power Strips offer an easy way to stop the indiscriminate flow of power. You can either use power strips with a programmable timer to turn your equipment on or off at a specific time or use power strips with sensors that can detect either motion or current.

The Wattstopper turns on and off, based upon occupancy using a motion detector to sense when something’s in use, while a Smart Strip monitors current use; it will turn off after a specific amount of time has passed with no activity.

Our modern green apartments in Anaheim offer many ways to conserve energy, on top of our programmable thermostats, ENERGY STAR appliances, dimmable lighting, and other amenities. Contact us today for more information and to schedule a visit.

How to Use Less Energy Drying Clothes

April 8th, 2014

Your Anaheim apartment with ENERGY STAR washer and dryer appliances already in the unit provides you with a convenient and efficient way to do your laundry. You don’t need to pack up your clothes and load them into your vehicle to take them to a local laundromat, you can control the settings more easily as you wash and dry, and you also have appliances that are very energy-efficient.

There are other ways you can make your laundry chores more energy-efficient, and here are a few green household tips to help you do so:

  • Clean the lint screen regularly. When it becomes clogged, the machines have to work harder, consuming more energy (and being less effective).
  • Get rid of excess water before drying by using the high-speed spin cycle in the washing machine.
  • Separate heavier clothing from lighter ones when drying, and use the cool-down cycle at the end of the load’s running time.

Share your money-saving tips for doing laundry with your apartment neighbors in the comments below, and contact us today to find out more about the full-size, front-load HE washers and dryers and other great features of our Anaheim apartments.

things to do for creativity

Out of ideas? Try these things to do in Anaheim for a creative mind. Source: stock.xchng.

Whether you’re writing a novel or analyzing business data, everyone can benefit from allowing more creativity into their lives. By allowing your mind to daydream and explore, you can finally find the solution to that problem at work or an idea for a new project. Here are three things to do in Anaheim to give your mind more space to be creative.

  1. Take a break from the driver’s seat and commute to work on the MetroLink. Use this time, put in earbuds if you need, to be quiet and still before you start your day. In silence, stressful thoughts can simply pass by, leaving your mind more room to roam and more space to think and create.
  2. Yoga is another way to spark creativity. Through breathing and mindfulness, you can get in a relaxed state of mind where you are open to new possibilities. Try it in the on-site yoga studio.
  3. Get out of your comfort zone. Go some place you’ve never been before like MUZEO, ride the highest roller coaster at one of Anaheim’s theme parks or sign up for a runDisney race.

Our modern, urban apartment community in Anaheim is central to the city’s most unique and exciting experiences. So before you go back to work in Orange County, or in the on-site business center, take advantage of our location and amenities to expand and spring clean your mind for new, creative ideas. Connect with The Crossing on Facebook for more things to do in Anaheim, and contact us now if you have a question about one of our on-site amenities.

Tips to Prevent Rust in Stainless Steel Sinks

While stainless steel is a very rust-resistant material, that doesn’t mean that it is completely impervious to rust. Before rust does occur, there are things you can do to help prevent it, and if it occurs, there are ways to remove the rust from your kitchen sink.

Do not use steel wool pads or cleaners that contain chloride when you are cleaning your sink. Both can cause the surface to become damaged, which provides a point of entry for the iron in water to start building rust deposits.

One of the best ways to remove rust is by using citric acid crystals, which work to dissolve and eradicate the rust deposits. You can also use common household items like vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda, and club soda to remove rust in your stainless steel sink.

If you have some clever apartment cleaning tips, share them with us in the comments below, and contact us today to find out more about our apartments in Anaheim with kitchen islands, ENERGY STAR appliances, espresso wood cabinets, and more.
