Goblins, ghouls, witches, and…high energy bills? If energy waste and high utility bills are the stuff of your nightmares, then ENERGY STAR has got your back! This Halloween, we’ve put together our favorite tips to make sure your holiday is all treats and no tricks.
- Slay energy vampires. Throw away that garlic! You won’t need it to tackle these vampires—products and electronics that suck energy while plugged in. To stop your electronics from using up energy when you don’t need them, plug your computer, phone, and other equipment into a smart power strip. The strip detects when electronics enter standby mode and cuts off power to them.
- Rule Your Attic! What’s hiding in your attic—spirits, spiders, or just bad insulation? Nine out of 10 homes in the U.S. are under-insulated. Sealing air leaks and improving insulation is important to keep warm air in and ghosts out. Learn how easy it is to measure your insulation, get solutions, and fix and save today at www.energystar.gov/RuleYourAttic.
- Light up the night. What’s that lurking in the shadows? Use ENERGY STAR certified bulbs and light fixtures to light up dark corners and scare away the monsters! If you’re prepping for trick-or-treaters, make sure to stock up on outdoor fixtures for a spooky display. Looking for LED bulbs for the house? Visit energystar.gov/BrightenALife to learn how this October, purchasing ENERGY STAR certified LED bulbs not only saves you energy and money, but helps someone in need.
