Choose Battery Operated Decorations

One of the best ways to save money on holiday decorations is choosing and using battery-operated decorations. This is not possible for all decorations, but many are included. Batteries are inexpensive to buy and are also energy efficient. Instead of using power from a homeowner’s own home, the battery supplies the energy. This helps homeowners save money on their electric bills.

Some examples of battery-operated decorations include lights, inflatable figurines, and plushes. These are all great additions for a home during the holidays and, if battery operated, are energy efficient!

Batteries can be dangerous, though! It is important to practice electrical safety when using battery-operated decorations. Batteries should not be kept in warm areas as there is potential for them to overheat and explode.

Go Old-School and Burn Candles

Electrical services are not always needed, though! If homeowners want to save money for the season, they can use and invest in candles. Not only do candles smell wonderful, but they also provide sufficient light to see.

Candles also don’t use any energy and can burn for hours! Little light is needed during the day as the sun is out. However, candles can be unsafe and should never be left burning without someone supervising the flame.
