You’ve got enough spending to do this holiday season, so why spend more than you need to on electricity bills? Sure, it might considered the most wonderful time of the year, but that may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you get the mail at the end of the month. There are lots of ways to save when it comes to holiday lights and decorations and we’re letting you in on a few energy-saving tips below:
Deck The Halls With LEDs
Still using old holiday lights? Sure, they may still work but they’re using up to 70% more energy. It doesn’t stop there, newer LED lights are brighter, more eco-friendly and are much cooler to the touch than incandescent bulbs. It’s a “win” no matter which way you look at it.
Set It And Forget It
If you have trouble remembering to turn the lights off before you go to sleep, put them on a timer. Have them turn on when it gets dark outside and then have them turn off right around bedtime. We recommend leaving them on for no longer than 6 hours per day.
Turn Off The Lights
No, we’re not talking about your holiday lights this time. We’re talking about the rest of the lights in the room. If you have your Christmas tree lit, it will likely provide enough light to see around the room. Therefore, you can go ahead and turn off the rest of the lights in the room.
By following the tips above this holiday season, you’ll likely see a bit of relief when it comes time to pay the bills. And remember, whenever you need electrical service in Rochester or the surrounding areas you can count on the experts at Lon Lockwood Electric!
