How to Save Energy During the Holidays
The winter holiday season has already begun. It is commonly associated with a frenzy of holiday-related activities, such as cooking, decorating homes, shopping, and even buying gifts. As you may have already noticed in previous holidays, your energy expenses tend to go up, thereby raising your electricity bills. This holiday season, you can leverage the following tips to save energy.
Go for LED Lights
Your temptation to use the conventional incandescent lights should be overcome by cheaper, more cost-effective LED lights. These lights consume only 10 percent of the energy that regular incandescent bulbs use. Decorating your Christmas tree with LED lights will, therefore, save you a ton of money.
Use Energy Efficient Appliances
The market today is awash with various energy-efficient appliances, such as those provided by Hoff Heating & AC, which have an ENERGY STAR label. These appliances go a long way to catching on the energy expenses. When purchasing appliances to use for your cooking and other household holiday activities, you may want to focus on checking for the ENERGY STAR label.
Go for the Fireplace
Heating is probably one of the most energy-consuming areas in your home during the holiday season. Using your HVAC equipment to warm your house may be a favorable option. However, if you want to cut costs on energy expenses during the holidays, you should probably focus more on using the fireplace as the go-to option to heat your rooms. Instead of using the HVAC equipment, using the fireplace may even pose additional benefits as it would bring together members of the family in a social gathering.
