4 Tips to Keep Your Energy Bill From Haunting Your Halloween

From haunted houses to horror films, Halloween can be the most terrifying night of the year. But your energy bill doesn't have to be so shocking. Even a few simple changes to the way you use energy can add up to significant savings each month on your bill. So while you're out celebrating with your friends, carving pumpkins on your porch or loading up on candy from the generous souls in your neighborhood, practice these energy saving tricks and you'll be sure to find an energy saving treat!

  1. Get rid of vampires It's only fitting this time of year to talk about the vampire energy that threatens your energy bill. Vampire energy is the electricity that leaks out of your appliances and electronics, even when they are turned off. Most electronics continue to consume energy as long as they are plugged into the wall. You can't ward them off with cloves of garlic, but the solution is simple enough. Just unplug any used devices and you'll be well on your way to energy savings. 

  2. Scare off creepy creatures Consider placing solar lighting outside of your home; after all, the scariest creatures crave the dark. You can keep the path to your door well lit for trick-or-treaters with just a few solar lights. They don't wire in to your home's electricity and won't increase your bill. Instead they use the power from the sun and can be used year round. 

  3. Keep your little goblins safe If you're out trick-or-treating with your kids, make sure you keep them protected. Try giving your little ones shakable flashlights. These flashlights don't need batteries or even a charger. Instead, kids simply light their way by shaking them. If you want to be even greener, consider purchasing shakable flashlights with LED lights. They typically last a little longer and are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. 

  4. Stop wasting heat on ghosts If you're out and about this Halloween, make sure you turn down the thermostat in your home. There's no point in keeping it comfortable if no one is there to enjoy it. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends keeping your thermostat at 68 degrees in the colder seasons for optimal energy efficiency. However, turning the temperature down even more could offer serious energy savings. The agency says setting it back another 10 to 15 degrees for eight hours could save you about 5 to 15 percent on your energy bill.
