As we head into fall and winter swings into full force, it’s important to find ways to stay warm and cozy through the season. Use these 7 toasty tips to feel warm no matter how cold the weather outside gets:
Who doesn’t love curling up by the fireplace? Keep the winter blues away and relax by the fire. Enjoy the decorative fireplaces in select apartments at Aura Pentagon City. The Swift Petworth has a fireplace in the lounge area that makes a perfect spot cozy spot to gather.
Open your blinds on sunny days to let the sun heat up your apartment. This is a great option when your place has floor-to-ceiling windows like atCountry Place Apartments.
Save on your heating bills with eco-friendly features. Many of our communities are LEED-certified, like The Swift Petworth. Their double-pane windows reduce the demands on your heating system.
It’s sweater weather! Pull out your comfiest hoodies, sweaters, and socks to stay comfortable throughout the winter. You’ll have no problem storing your seasonal clothing in your expansive closet space at many of our communities like Bethesda Place and Brighton Village.
Summertime, and the living’s easy. It’s also hot. Help alleviate your utility bill at your apartment with these 7 easy tips:
If you have a ceiling fan, like the ones offered at our Brighton Village community, be sure the blades are rotating counter-clockwise to move the rising hot air away from you. In the fall, switch to clockwise so that the warmer air is circulated into the room. Well-placed tabletop and standing fans can also help cool you down quickly and efficiently.
Keep blinds closed to eliminate excessive sun. Blackout curtains are also a good idea especially when your apartment has floor-to-ceiling windows like at Country Place Apartments.
Use the exhaust fan. If your apartment has an over-the-range microwave like our Bethesda Place community, the fan works there, too, in sucking out the hot air, especially when cooking.
One of the many perks of city living is the rooftop of our apartment buildings. Summer is here and the rooftop decks are open and ready for entertaining and relaxing.
Aura Pentagon City features two pools on rooftops along with sundecks with grills and seating areas.
Not only do our 2401 Pennsylvania Avenue and Swift Petworth communities offer gorgeous apartments in NW DC, they’re also perfectly located for spectacular views of the Fourth of July fireworks.
Each year residents and their guests gather to enjoy food, fun, and fireworks all from the convenience of their own apartment building. The Swift also features yoga classes every Tuesday mornings and Sunday evenings. There are commercial-grade grills that may be reserved for your entertaining needs and a cozy fire pit to warm up the cooler nights. 2401 Pennsylvania Ave. treats its residents to some of the best views of Georgetown and Foggy Bottom from its rooftop terrace creating a calming oasis away from the bustling city.
Only a few miles outside of DC in downtown Chevy Chase, MD, you’ll find Highland House and Highland House West Apartments. These two sister buildings sit in the well-landscaped neighborhood of Friendship Village and both feature rooftop sundecks with swimming pools. Shaded tables line the sundecks to provide a comfortable outdoors for all visitors. The large swimming pools are appointed with lush greenery and relaxing lawn chairs to provide the ultimate relaxing experience. The beautiful tree-lined views sprinkled with the cityscape provide a unique panoramic view. Both communities treat their residents to a refreshing atmosphere suitable for all ages high above the busy city.
It’s great to take advantage of these amenities during the hot summers of Washington, DC and Maryland. A rooftop deck and swimming pool can make a “staycation” feel like a true getaway. For more information on Polinger Company and apartments to rent, visit polingerco.com.
