Holiday Savings with Your Electric

Posted by

Saving money around the holidays is the goal of many homeowners. One way to cut down on costs around d the holidays is to save on your electricity. With all the lights and other holiday factors affecting your bill, reducing electrical costs is not easy, but with these tips, you can help keep your total electrical cost down:

Use Timers

Check your holiday decorations to see if they have built-in timers, which are usually under-utilized by many homeowners. If they don’t feature timers, you can purchase them at your local retail or home improvement store. By using timers for holiday decorations such as your tree or outdoor lights, you can limit our electrical use to a set number of hours, rather than having them left on and forgotten. The savings from using timers can add up quickly!

  • Wide variety of light arrangements and colors to choose from.
  • Multiple LED strands can be lit for the same cost as lighting one strand of incandescent bulbs.
  • Led have lower wattage, making them safer to use.
