As we ramp up for the holidays, it’s easy to get lost in the beautiful lights & displays. If you are like many people, you may even get caught up in the decorating fiasco. But when you receive that December electric bill, the magic can quickly disappear. To help cut down on some electric costs during the holidays, we’ve put together a list of suggestions.

LED Christmas Lights

Instead of opting for the traditional lights, switch over to LED Christmas lights. Since these lights use about 90% less electricity than regular Christmas lights, you are guaranteed to have a lower electric bill. These lights can typically be found at any location that sells Christmas decorations.

Fiber Optics

There are a multitude of options for Fiber optic Christmas Decorations, from Christmas Trees to snowmen and everything in between. Since fiber optics only use one bulb, instead of several, the amount of electricity that is used to power your decoration will not affect your electric bill as much as something that requires more energy.

Use Timers

How many times have you gone to bed without remembering to turn your tree lights or outside Christmas lights off? Your electric bill definitely reflects these memory lapses. The best way to avoid this happening is to have everything hooked up to timers. If you don’t want to invest in timers, utilize some of your other equipment, like a cell phone, to set reminders to turn your lights off.

Use Non-electric Decorations

Before there were Christmas lights & dancing snowmen, people decorated with candles, wooden figurines, real pine garland & more. These types of decorations are just as beautiful as more modern options, but do not use any energy, and have no effect on your electric bill. Plus, they bring back some old fashioned charm!

Use Your Tree as a Light

Instead of having your tree lit up, the overhead light & your end table lamp going, let your Christmas Tree be the source of light. You are still using electricity, but you are replacing one source with another, hopefully impacting your electric bill very little.

Try implementing one or all of these suggestions this Christmas season. Your wallet will thank you! Do you do anything else to help reduce the cost of your electric bill?

"The technicians at Trinity services were extremely professional. It was a pleasure to open up our home to them. My wife and I were extremely impressed with how neat and clean they worked. A lot of contractors just don't care, but I could tell that Trinity was not one of those contractors."

Bruce – Naperville, IL

"I met Josiah last week when he came out to 310 S Rosedale in Aurora to consult with my clients about the house they are buying. I was very impressed by both his knowledge and wiliness to answer questions. Far too many in the trades are not quite so customer centric. In any case, it is my pleasure to recommend your company to other agents and to my own clients in the future."
