As individuals and as a company, our team members strive to show how much we care about the local communities where we live and work. Because our residents are our neighbors, it's important to us that the Olympus Property community is more than just a place to live.

We encourage team members to seek opportunities to contribute to the community by supporting their efforts with time, donations, and extra hands. Our team members find meaningful ways to give to their communities by walking, building, supporting and cheering on local troops and non-profit organizations.

OLYMPUS GREEN LIFESTYLE
- Energy-efficient appliances
- Sub-metering of utilities resulting in lower energy and water bills
Responsible Land Use
- Higher population density; therefore, use less land than other forms of housing
- Specialization in difficult in-fill and re-development projects to decrease land use
- Close proximity to mass transit lines, reducing or eliminating the need for individual car transport
Conservation of Natural Resources
- Online leasing, online service requests and online payments to reduce the use of paper
- Water conservation focus and re-use projects to reduce stress on local water systems
- Controls on irrigation to reduce water consumption
- Information rich website designed to reduce requests for paper brochures
RESIDENTS – WHAT YOU CAN DO TO BE GREEN?
- Set the refrigerator temperature between 36 to42 degrees. Set the freezer temperature between -5 to +6 degrees. Don’t set the temperature colder than needed.
- Defrost manual defrost units regularly.
- Resist the urge to open the oven during baking items. Every time you open the oven, the temperature drops up to 25 degrees and requires additional energy to bring the temperature to the original setting.
- Turn the stove “cook top”- off a few minutes before the food has completed cooking. Retained heat finishes the job using less energy.
- Begin cooking on a higher setting until liquid begins to boil. Then, lower temperature and simmer the food until fully cooked.
- Instead of using a range use your toaster oven, slow cooker or electric skillet for special items.
- Microwave ovens shorten cooking times, which saves electricity.
- Clean filters on humidifiers, vacuums, exhaust hoods, etc.
- Run cold water for disposal.
- Use natural lighting. Open curtains and blinds during the day instead of using lighting.
- Use single, high-watt bulbs. Using one high-watt light bulb instead of multiple low-watt bulbs saves energy. (Don’t exceed manufacturer’s recommended wattage for fixtures)
- Turn lights off when not in use.
- Long-life incandescent light bulbs are the least efficient of the incandescent light bulbs.
- Use ENERGY STAR compact fluorescent light bulbs. ENERGY STAR compact fluorescent light bulbs last longer and use up to 75% less energy than standard light bulbs.
- Higher light settings use more energy. Lowering the dimmer controls or using three-way light bulbs can save energy.
- Keep your A/C filters clean.
- Change your settings on your thermostat. Save 10% or more by setting the thermostat to a minimum of 76 degrees when at home and higher when you are away. (Do not turn the A/C unit off when you leave)
- Do not cover air vents. Keep furniture, clothing, windowing covering, etc. away from air vents.
- Closing blinds and window coverings during the day will help keep your home cooler, which will save energy and lower utility costs.
- Cool only the rooms in use. Close unused rooms to keep cooled air in areas where it is most needed.
- Delay chores that produce heat until the cooler parts of the evening. Including: dishwashing, laundering, cooking, etc.
- Turn off electronics if they are not in use. (televisions, stereos, computers, etc)
Washer & Dryers
- Do not dry clothes excessively. Don’t place clothes in the dryer and then leave. If you have to tumble a second time you are wasting electricity.
- Clean your filter on the dryer after each load.
- Adjust the water level to the load you are washing in the washing machine. Run full loads in your washing machine.
- While washing, set the rinse cycle on “Cold”. This saves energy and electricity usage.
