Simple ways to save electricity during the holidays

Simple ways to save electricity during the holidays

December 17, 2019 – It’s that time of the year where we shop, eat, visit, bake, and just plain have fun. But with that fun can come a larger than expected electric bill in January! Take some time to add these simple ways to save into your holiday plans so you avoid a potentially ho ho ho-rrendous electric bill.

Give green:
Be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR® label when shopping for appliances and electronics this holiday season! This certification label was created by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA) to promise substantial energy savings.

LEDs are what you need:
Whether you decorate your home like National Lampoon’s Clark Griswold or just trim a simple Christmas tree, it is wise to invest in LED holiday lights. Not only do LED lights generate a lot less heat than traditional incandescent bulbs making them safer, they use nearly 75 percent less energy than incandescent and last up to 25 times longer!

Keep away grinchy energy vampires:
Unplug electronics and appliances when not in use or when going away for a vacation. Keeping things such as computers, gaming systems, toaster ovens, phone chargers, hair dryers, etc. plugged in may not account for a ton on your electric bill, but why not play it energy-smart and safe by unplugging these energy-sucking vampires when not in use.
