While UNF apartments generally come with heating and air conditioning units, there are a few steps you can take to keep yourself extra warm or nice and cool in your new place. We know that Florida weather is generally warm and humid, but we do sometimes get a month or two of chilly weather! If you tend to be sensitive to the cold and prefer not to turn on the heat, we've got some tips for you. Similarly, Florida summers can result in fairly high temperatures. This doesn't mean you won't have the opportunity to cool off and enjoy yourself despite the heat. While we don't recommend turning off the air conditioning completely in very hot weather, you can still take a few steps to save money and stay cool during heat waves.
Residents who want to stay warm but are reluctant to keep the heating system running can find strategic ways to feel cozy and comfortable in UNF apartments. When winter rolls around and temperatures drop at night, a big, thick comforter is the perfect way to insulate yourself and enjoy a good night's sleep. If you want to use what you already own, just layer the blankets instead. In addition, nothing warms you up faster than a hot beverage. Keep some cocoa mix, tea, and coffee in stock so that you can quickly warm yourself up when needed. Fleece blankets are extra popular as the winter months approach, even in Florida! Grab one from Joann Fabrics, Wal-Mart, and other nearby shops and wrap it around your shoulders when you feel particularly chilly. However, if you're extra cold on some days, turning on the heat may be the best option for you. You can even find UNF apartments with a fireplace in the unit!
During the summer months, air conditioning units are essential for most Florida residents in apartments near UNF. However, if you don't have any pets or roommates in the unit, you can always turn off the air conditioning when you're not at home to save money. If you don't want to turn it off completely, you can always raise it to a reasonable temperature and lower it later. Want to enjoy outdoor activities during the summer but need to keep cool? Many UNF apartments have resort-style pools available for resident use. Taking a quick dip in the pool just moments away from home can be just what you need to cool off while enjoying being outside. If the weather is warm but windy, you can always open your screened windows and let the breeze cool you off. Apartments near UNF also come with screened patios where you can relax and enjoy some fresh air inside your home.
We hope that these few tips will help you stay warm or cool throughout the year. Comfortable apartment living is attainable even on a budget! Check our website today and choose from any of the great communities in Jacksonville.
