Is Energy Efficiency on Your Holiday Gift List?

Energy efficiency is a gift that keeps on giving in lower utility bills and increased home comfort year-round. These energy-saving gift ideas make great stocking stuffers for the do-it-yourselfers on your list, and many of them cost less than $30, so they won't break your holiday budget.

  • Programmable thermostats allow users to save energy by adjusting household temperatures automatically, based on the time of day. Newer smart models include cool features such as self-programming and remote control.
  • Low-flow showerheads can reduce water usage up to 50 percent for a typical shower, conserving water and lowering water heating costs.
  • Faucet aerators save water and the energy it takes to heat that water. Kitchen aerators save an average of 3 gallons of water per day, while bathroom aerators typically save 2.4 gallons.
  • LED bulbs are much more efficient than conventional bulbs and they're rated to last 25,000 hours or more. It's a gift that will last for years.
  • Caulking and weatherstripping make a home more comfortable and save energy all year long, just by sealing gaps around doors and windows.

Not excited about leaving a tube of caulk under the tree? Give ENERGY STAR® TVs, appliances or electronic devices. ENERGY STAR products use less energy than standard models.
