Christmas Tree

How much does it cost to run Christmas Tree lights? – the good news is – it’s cheaper than you think!

PUBLISHED: 18th Nov 2022

Christmas is fast approaching and households across the UK will be getting ready to put up their festive lights – but you might not know how much they can cost and what it means for your increasing household bills.

This year, even a small amount of energy could mean concerns for British households as we all contend with higher than usual energy bills. However, the good news is that your Christmas tree lights are actually really energy efficient and less expensive than you probably think.

Last year, the average family had their Christmas tree up from November 26th to January 6th – a total of 43 days of dazzling lights, the majority of households used LED lights, which is good news for bills as they use less than normal halogen and incandescent bulbs.

An energy expert at Uswitch said “a household with a string of 200 LED fairy lights would expect to increase their bills by just 27p if used for 6 hours a day for 22 days over the whole festive period – that’s 0.2p per hour”
