Deck The Halls with Energy Savings

Posted on: December 7, 2018

The holidays are upon us and they usually bring sky-high energy bills. You might be looking to save a few extra bucks without skimping on the holiday cheer. Keep these tips in mind while decorating for the holidays:

Switch to energy-efficient LED lights

Incandescent holiday light strings might make you feel nostalgic, but that feeling will quickly disappear when you see your electric bill. Save money by using LED light strands. They are brighter, safer and use more than 70% less energy than traditional bulbs.

Limited hourly usage

Use timers for your indoor and outdoor decorations to automatically turn on when it gets dark and turn off in the middle of the night. Limit displays to 8 hours or less to save a bundle!

Get creative

Not all decorations need to be plugged in. Reflective ornaments and tinsel make the perfect complement to traditional string lights and create the shimmer and shine you were going for. Ribbons, wreaths and garlands are also great alternatives for indoor and outdoor decor.

Don’t be Clark Griswold

Relax! Don’t recreate the Griswold home from the 1989’s classic “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” Be safe, have fun, but remember – the more you plug in, the more you pay.
