Energy Conservation

Paragon Corporate Housing is proud to take an active role in being Energy Aware. We make an effort to keep our pricing as low as possible while striving to conserve our energy resources. Together we can reduce, reuse, and recycle to better our environment. Read on for Energy Saving Tips you can implement during your stay and help promote our green initiatives.

Save water by washing full loads or adjusting the water levels to medium or small. Use "cool" or "cold" settings whenever possible and dry clothes in 30-minute increments to avoid over-drying.

Limit the amount of pre-rinsing before loading the dishwasher. Always do full loads and use the “short wash” cycle on your dishwasher. Turn off the “heat dry” option as air drying takes a little longer, but saves energy.

Turn off water while brushing teeth or shaving and limit your time in the shower. Keep in mind that a moderately filled tub uses less water than a short shower.

Other than leaving on one small light for security, please turn off lights before leaving. Set the thermostat to energy saving temperatures. Maintain the drapes and blinds in your apartment closed as this will help keep the heat out in the summer and the heat in during the winter.

Let Mother Nature light your home, sunlight can be brighter than a multitude of light bulbs and it is free of cost. Use a microwave or toaster to cook small portions of food and a conventional oven or stove-top for larger items. To save on power costs and increase the life of electronics, turn off TVs, DVD players, cable boxes, and computers during long periods of non-use.

Wireless internet is provided and cable services can be added. The wifi network name and password are located on your coffee table, along with the channel guide if your reservation includes cable. If you experience television, cable, or internet issues, please follow the troubleshooting tips below or contact Guest Services for assistance.

Television and Cable Troubleshooting:

  • Verify the cable box and TV are on.
  • Verify the TV is on the correct input, usually HDMI1. If you are still unsure of the correct input this can be verified by looking on the back of the TV and seeing which input the HDMI cable runs into.
  • If the above steps are correct and you still have no image on the screen, try unplugging the power from the cable box for 10 seconds, plug back in, and allow system to reboot.

Internet Troubleshooting:

  • Most internet issues can be resolved by rebooting the modem and router. Rebooting can be achieved by unplugging the power from the back of each device for 10 seconds. If you are unsure which devices the modem and router are, simply unplug the power strip from the wall that all the devices are plugged into for 10 seconds, plug back in, and allow everything to reboot.

Please be mindful of the volume level of stereo equipment, radios, televisions, and musical instruments before 10:00 a.m. and after 8:00 p.m., or any other time which may disrupt your neighbors. We ask that you not disturb, annoy, endanger, or interfere with the quiet enjoyment of any of the other residents in the community.

If a fitness room is available, equipment must be used at your own risk and Paragon assumes no responsibility for injury. Fitness center hours are posted on or next to the entrance doors. Fitness center keys or fobs will be included with your apartment keys.

If a pool or spa is available, check signs for hours of use as well as rules and regulations while using the facilities. Pool keys or fobs will be included with your apartment keys. The pool or spa must be used at your own risk and Paragon assumes no responsibility for injury.

Your arrival instructions provide your mailbox number and location. The leasing office will accept your packages or offer package delivery options through a locker program. Please check with Guest Services if you expect a package and have not received delivery or locker access code information.

Housekeeping will remove trash from the small receptacles in your apartment during each housekeeping visit. All other times, please dispose of your trash in dumpsters located throughout the property, trash chutes located in the hallway of your building, or utilize valet trash services if offered by the property. If you cannot locate the garbage receptacle, please contact Guest Services.

Your arrival instructions include parking information for your apartment. Please contact Guest Services for additional parking.

  • Park only in your assigned space. Unauthorized vehicles parked in reserved spaces will be towed at owner’s expense.
  • Please inform visitors of parking policies. Visitors may only park in visitor parking area and guests are responsible for their visitor’s actions.
  • Only one vehicle per parking space. Parking over the line causes two spaces to be unnecessarily occupied, so please be courteous.
  • Guest is responsible for any expense of damage to the pavement due to dripping oil or gasoline from vehicles.
  • Automotive repairs or vehicle washing is not allowed on the property without permission from property management.
  • Personal vehicles such as boats, trailers, campers, jet skis, etc. are not allowed to be parked on the property.

Paragon makes no representation or warranties that the building or apartment community is secure from theft or any other criminal activity perpetuated by any occupant or others.

Please become “comfortably acquainted” with your new living environment. When securing your apartment, check to see that all entry doors, sliding glass doors, and windows are locked. If any of these devices are inoperable, please contact Paragon immediately. Make sure to verify who is knocking on your door prior to letting anyone in. Never travel with or leave large amounts of jewelry or cash in your apartment. When on the property, be observant and aware of the people around you and your surroundings. Always lock your vehicle and never leave valuables in your vehicle. If you have an emergency, call 911.

Use only dishwasher detergent and not ordinary dish liquid soap. Scrape off any excess food from dishes before placing them in the dishwasher. Make sure dishes are dishwasher safe and place glassware in the top rack. Place silverware in the silverware rack, stack plates in the bottom of the dishwasher, and make sure not to block the water sprayer. Place dish detergent designed for dishwasher use in the soap dispenser and add rinse agent to prevent water spots if your dishwasher has that functionality. Close the door and choose your cycle.

Make sure any glass, plastic containers, and plastic wrap are labeled microwave safe. Do not use metal containers or foil in the microwave as this can cause a fire.

Garbage disposals are a great way to keep smells out of your trash receptacles. Do not put any potato peels, bones, eggshells, coffee grounds, and fibrous or starchy items in the disposal. Avoid placing trash down the disposal. Running cold water while the disposal is turned on helps the waste go down easier. Running hot water can allow fats to melt and re-solidify creating a blockage in the drain. Disposing of citrus rinds helps freshen the disposal and leaves a pleasant smell.

Please make sure to flush only toilet paper. Do not flush paper towels, feminine products, or other items as it will cause a blockage which may lead to an overflow.

When showering, keep your shower curtain liner inside of the bathtub to prevent water spills and floor water damage. Do not fill the bathtub above the overflow indicator. If water spills on the floor, please dry immediately with a towel.

At check-out, turn the heat down to 65° degrees or AC setting to 75° degrees. During colder months, please do not turn off or set the heat under 55° degrees as this may cause the pipes in your apartment to freeze. Keep your thermostat on the "auto" setting and not the "on" setting when in use. The "on" setting runs only the fan continuously and will not automatically shut-off.

  • Do not block or cover any heating vents.
  • Whenever possible, maintain a temperature between 62° and 72° degrees Fahrenheit in your apartment.
  • In damp, humid, or rainy weather, keep windows and doors closed.
  • Clean and dust your apartment on a regular basis. Use environmentally safe household cleaners. Regularly vacuum and mop floors.
  • Periodically, clean and dry the walls and floor around the sink, bathtub, shower, toilet, windows, and patio doors using a common household disinfectant cleaner. Wipe down and dry areas where moisture accumulates such as countertops, windows, and windowsills.
  • Use the bathroom fan when bathing or showering and run the fan until all excess moisture has clearly vanished from the bathroom.
  • Use the exhaust fan above your stove when cooking or using the dishwasher. Run the fan until all moisture has been removed.
  • Do not overfill closets or storage areas as overcrowding restricts airflow.
  • Leaks or water damage
  • Malfunctions with the heating or air system
  • Windows or doors that do not open or close properly
  • Musty or moldy odors
  • Pest infestations
  • Gas odors or leaks

We hope you enjoy your time with us and look forward to accommodating your next temporary housing stay.
