'Tis the season for decking the halls, indulging in sweet treats and celebrating with loved ones. If you’re making a list and checking it twice, finding extra ways to save energy is always nice. Starting with lights, save more by using these tips!

Feel the Magic of LED Lights

LED holiday lights use up to 90% less electricity than incandescent lights. The initial cost of LED light strings is higher, but they are more robust and last up to 10x longer. LED bulbs are also cooler to the touch than incandescent bulbs, reducing potential risks of fire.

In the St. Nick of Time

Set a timer for your lights. This will allow you to not forget about turning off the lights, either during the day or late at night. Having a timer will ultimately save you a significant amount of energy.

Don't Let "Vampires" Steal Christmas

Even when switched off, your electrical décor still consumes small amounts of electricity, hence, "vampires" sucking out energy. Avoid them by plugging your decorations into power strips. When you switch off the strip, all of your holiday decor will stop draining electricity from the wall outlet.
