Reduce Energy Usage, Not Holiday Fun

Keeping the holidays energy efficient.

The holiday season is full of bright lights, festive meals, and chilly weather. All that holiday revelry can impact your household's energy usage, but that's no reason to summon your inner Scrooge.

A good season for change

This season - perhaps more than any other season - is a great time to take a look at those lights. If you haven't made the switch yet from those decade-old incandescent bulbs, this is a great season to look at going to LED bulbs. Not only will you save on electricity (LED bulbs can be eight times as efficient as incandescent light bulbs) they can be brighter and they look great all around the house.

Making the Most of Your Heat This Winter

Take charge of your energy use with these cold weather tips. Heating alone is responsible for more than 40% of home energy use.

Think Outside the Oven

According to ENERGY STAR, cooking a meal in a toaster oven or air fryer can save as much as 50% of the energy used to cook the same meal in a conventional electric oven.

Prepare for Winter Energy Costs

In New England, energy bills are generally higher in the colder months. Supply costs, or the cost of the energy that is delivered to you, tend to be higher in the winter months due to changes in demand and availability of resources. Supply costs are market-based and are not set by Unitil. Additionally, the energy needed to keep your home comfortable during the chilly New England winter means higher overall energy use.
