You turn on your holiday lights when you get home from work. Then you go about your night, making dinner, helping the kids with their homework, bathing and then it’s time for bed. You fall asleep, wake up and head out to work only to realize your forgot to turn off the decorations. You tell yourself you have to remember to do so tomorrow morning, but once again you forget. See the theme here?
Forgetting to turn off your holiday decorations can be a burden on your wallet when it comes time to pay next month’s energy bill and with all of the extra green you’re spending on gifts, food and the like isn’t going to make paying that bill any easier. So, how can you make sure you’re keeping your energy costs reasonable? The answer is simple, put the lights and decorations on a timer.
How does a timer work, you ask? It’s similar to your home’s programmable thermostat. You set the time you’d like the holiday decor to turn on and then you set a time for everything to turn off. Yes, it’s really that simple. And best of all, there are lots of apps out there that enable you to control your holiday lights from your smartphone. So now there’s no excuse!
