During the winter, and especially over the holidays, home energy usage goes up. This means your holiday electric bill goes up as well, even as electric prices remain flat. For example, the average home that uses 1050 kilowatt-hours of electricity a month, or about $4 a day, can easily see increased usage add up to $7 or $8 a day over the winter holiday months.
By now, most people have made the switch to LED lights. But if you decorate with holiday lights, will LEDs really save you any noticeable amount of money compared to traditional incandescent bulbs?
The answer is a resounding YES!
LEDs consume 80 to 90 percent less power than incandescent lights.
To put it in real dollars, if you have a modest holiday display on your home, your energy costs would be approximately $10-$15 for incandescent lights or around $2 for LEDs for the holiday season.
To go full-Griswold, the costs could be well over $300 with traditional lighting compared to $40-$50 with LEDs.
Why leave your holiday lights on all-night-long, when there's no one awake to enjoy them? Save money by using a timer to limit your display to a few hours each evening.
