Save Energy this Halloween With Our Top Tips

Pumpkins

It’s the time of year that everyone loves once again – Halloween! Everyone at Greensaver wishes you a fantastic day in costume, stuffing your face with delicious candy. However, we also don’t want your energy bill to scare you, so we’ve listed our top tips to save energy this Halloween.

Use LED Lights to Save Energy This Halloween

Consider purchasing LED pumpkin lights and LED decorations to light up your Halloween-themed home while saving energy. 

LED lightbulbs are highly efficient, consuming 75% less energy than incandescents while lasting up to 25,000 hours – a lifespan of more than three years if run 24/7. 

Re-Use Costumes

Costumes take energy to produce. Therefore, re-using them from previous years is a great way to save both energy and money.

Try swapping costumes with siblings, friends, or neighbours to get a different, second-hand costume. Alternatively, most second-hand clothes shops have a selection of outfits.

Make Costumes from Items at Home

Use items from your home to create a new costume. For example, throw on a striped t-shirt, a beanie, and black glasses to become Where’s Waldo!

Turn Down the Thermostat

The 31st of October can get quite cold, especially in Canada. However, instead of turning up the thermostat, add on an extra sweater to stay warm. Your door will be opening and closing with all the trick or treaters, so you don’t want to waste hot air by letting it escape.

Leave the Car at Home
