Blow-up Decorations May Blow-up Your Electric Bill

They seem to be all the rage this holiday but, those blow-up Christmas decorations could blow-up you bills.

Those inflatable Santas and other holiday yard statements use a fan blower to keep their shape intact.

Experts say some of those fans use as much power as seven 100 watt light bulbs or more.

An energy spokesperson says anything that uses electricity will have an impact on your bill but, heating and cooling make up half of that cost or more.
