The last thing you want to worry about over the holidays is
your power bill. But with a little
planning, it’s easy to save energy—so you can enjoy the festivities, without
fearing the added cost.
Here are our top five tips for saving energy this holiday
Lower your thermostat
Planning a holiday feast for your loved ones? Remember to
lower your thermostat before you start cooking. Your oven will pick up the
slack! And a bonus? Hosting extra people in your home helps keep the room
cozy—another reason to lower the heat.
Baking is big over the holidays—and did you know that it
takes the same amount of energy to heat up your oven for one dish, as it does
for four? Multitask where you can and load up your oven.
Choose LED holiday lights
LED lights use 90% less electricity than regular bulbs.
Enjoy all the holiday glow, without the added cost.
Set a timer
It’s easy to forget your outdoor lights when you head out
for the day or turn in for the evening. By setting your lights on a timer, you
never need to worry about remembering to flick the switch.
your tree shine
We’re all guilty of turning on more lights than we need—but
why not let your tree light up the room? Hit the lights, enjoy the twinkle, and
save energy while you’re at it.
