Plug Into Holiday Efficiency: Home Energy Usage During the Holidays [Infographic]

Surge protectors and timed lighting decorations aren’t on most people’s holiday gift wish lists, but they should be. US energy consumption spikes during the holidays , along with food intake,  as millions of consumers set up ornate holiday lighting decorations and tune in to the Times Square ball drop on New Year’s Eve.

We recently developed an infographic showcasing the different types of activities — from sending a holiday e-card to lighting a Christmas tree — that are costing Americans a great deal in energy efficiency, not to mention cold hard cash on their energy bills.

How can US residents curb their energy consumption? We recommend utilizing surge protectors, battery back-up and timed lighting decorations to make this holiday season a very merry and energy efficient  one!

    Great info graphic to visualize the energy efficiency during the holiday season!
    Having surge protectors will not only save in your electrical bills, but protect your electronics from potential hazards. The average home receives 20 surges per day that can potentially damage sensitive electronics. As an appliance repair technician(Del-Air), we frequently replace as many as 10 computers and appliances per week. The average cost of such a repair is over $300.00 and sometimes as high as $650.00. So you do your calculations and decide!
