Simple energy conservation measures can lower your utility bills while increasing the comfort of your apartment. Although your landlord is largely responsible for your building's condition and heating system efficiency, and possibly the choice of major appliances, you make dozens of energy decisions every day.

Before you implement any measures requiring some alteration of your apartment, such as caulking and weather-stripping, make sure to get your landlord's permission.
