Pumpkins are popping up all across Edgewater, Maryland. Halloween is on the horizon. However, while kids are getting excited for a night of sugar rush, you’re dreading receiving your next utility bill. Fortunately, there’s a way you can enjoy the holiday, too. Implement these four simple practices, and you’ll improve your home’s energy efficiency and manage your utility costs this Halloween.

Alternative Lighting Methods

Halloween is the perfect time to create a spooky atmosphere around your home. Rather than using standard incandescent bulbs to cast an eerie glow on your yard, consider using LED lights. This is a more energy-efficient option. We understand that you want to keep your walkway lit for those trick-or-treaters. Consider using solar lights that absorb energy during the day and light the way at night.

Beware of Energy Vampires

This Halloween, you might unwittingly fall prey to energy vampires that suck energy from your home and increase your utility costs. For devices that you only need occasionally, it’s a good idea to unplug them when they’re not in use. Simply turning them off won’t stop them from drawing energy. To slay these vampires, either unplug your electronics or plug them into a power strip that you can turn off.

Don’t Leave Your Door Open

Leaving your door open sends air from the HVAC system right outside. As a result, the system will need to work harder to maintain the right temperature. To maximize energy efficiency, stand outside when disbursing treats. It is often cool enough at this time of the year to set a temperature that prevents the system from cycling on. You can choose, instead, to enjoy the nice fall weather.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

One of the best ways to maximize energy efficiency is to schedule preventive HVAC maintenance, and the Halloween season is the perfect time to do so. Fall maintenance prepares your system for the cold winter ahead. You won’t have to worry about energy costs during the Halloween season if you take advantage of these methods for maximizing energy efficiency.
