๐ŸŒŸ Switch to LED Parols and Christmas Lights.

Replace your traditional star lanterns using incandescent lights with energy-efficient parols and Christmas lights using LEDs. You save 87% on energy costs vs. incandescent bulbs and 50% vs. compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and last up to 5 to 10 times longer making them a cost-effective and environmentally friendly choice for your holiday decorations.

๐ŸŒŸ Unplug unused electrical decors and appliances.

Electrical Holiday Decors and Devices like your Belen and Christmas Tree lights continue to draw power even when turned off, known as standby power. Unplugging unused appliances, devices, and chargers can save up to Php 250 per month.

๐ŸŒŸ Set your air conditioner temperature higher.

During the holiday season, you will be greeted with cooler temperatures.
By setting the temperature on your air conditioner unit to 25 degrees Celsius during the cold season, you can save up to โ‚ฑ1,000 per month* on your electricity bill.**

๐ŸŒŸCool food before storing it in the refrigerator.

Cooking food ahead of meal times can definitely save precious hours of your day, however, storing hot food in the refrigerator or freezer causes the compressor to work harder to cool it down, thus consuming more energy.
Let hot food cool down to room temperature before refrigerating it.
