Energy Saving Tips During The Holiday Season

December 19, 2019 | Blog

The holidays are nearly here, and with all of the season’s twinkly lights and late-night gatherings, your December energy bill is likely far from cheerful. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can save on your energy bill this holiday season, while still enjoying all this time of year has to offer.

Switch to LED Lights

Making this one small change can save you a lot on your energy bill. LED bulbs are more environmentally friendly, and use far less energy to operate, 90% less than traditional strand lights in fact. Plus they run only about $10 per strand, so it’s one of the cheapest ways to save this season.

Decorate with Candles

While twinkle lights are nice, candles make for beautiful decoration and they smell good too. Burning candles instead of running your electricity to keep all of those lights lit up will save you big on your holiday energy bill.

Turn Down the Thermostat When You Have Guests

When friends and family visit you this year, turn down the heat! Extra bodies in your home means you’ll get plenty of extra warmth without the extra cost. Plus, your guests will be more comfortable too.

Mind Your Energy Use While Baking

Holiday baking is a fun tradition that many families enjoy. If you’re trying to save on your energy bill this year, try making the most of the energy that your oven produces by baking multiple dishes at once. It takes the same amount of energy to run a full oven as it does to run one with only one dish in it.

Don’t Leave the Lights on All Night

Wait until it gets dark to show off your holiday light spectacle, and then be sure to turn them off again before you go to bed. This way, you still get to enjoy the lights, but you won’t be spending money to keep them lit up in the middle of the night. If you find yourself forgetting to turn your lights off, you can purchase a timer, set it, and forget it.

Plus, when you and your family are gathered around your lit-up tree, turn the rest of the lights off and bask in the glow of the holiday spirit, and save on your energy bill while you’re at it.
