It can be tough to save on utility bills over the holiday season, when everyone is sitting around in their houses for a long period of time and it is just so convenient to leave on the heat.  But there are ways of reducing it (along with your bills) without feeling deprived.  Whether you have a contract with IDT Energy or another service provider, it is worth investigating ways of cutting costs. And while doing so you will be helping the environment too.  As well, ensure all the lights you intend to put up have a safety seal which means they have been tasted and are safe for usage.  And then unplug all lights before leaving the house.

Fake Christmas Trees need to be checked for flammability; buy a safe one.  Do not use electric decorations on artificial trees that have anything metallic attached to them. Rather, use colored spotlights close to the tree to achieve the same effect. Make sure there are no extension cords near the tree stand.

Outdoor Decorations

All lights outside should be plugged into Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters that can be found in any hardware store.  Better to be safe than sorry.  Keep this Christmas Merry…and safe by following these easy tips.
