Pump up the festive cheer with these inflatable Christmas decorations

Make the Yuletide that bit more fun.

With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s almost time to start decking the halls with boughs of holly and get into the festive spirit. While lights and other decorations will always hold a special place in our hearts, the trend of inflatable Christmas decorations is on the rise.

Do inflatable decorations use a lot of electricity?

One concern that stops many from embracing inflatables is the extra electricity. The simple fact is that they do use more electricity than not using them at all. The final cost will depend on how long you keep them inflated, and during hot days it will use more energy to keep them cool so it might increase your power bill by around 140 watts per inflatable per hour.
