Holiday Lighting – How to Cut Back
The holidays are fast approaching and many of us are getting ready to decorate our homes with lights and sparkles. But with the use of Christmas lights comes the problem of additional electricity costs, which is why saving energy has grown to become a big issue, with consumers more conscious about saving energy, even swapping out their old bulbs with energy saving lights. Since the holidays bring out the brightest in all of us, especially when it comes to decorations, here are a few simple tips to help save on the power bill and lessen our burdens after the holiday season.
Use versatile decorations Instead of getting different lighting decorations for Halloween, thanksgiving and Christmas, just get designs and lights that can be used all throughout the holiday season. You might think that it’s impossible to find pieces that will work, especially since you’ll be dealing with different themes and even different seasons. The truth is, you just need to get basic pieces and you can dress them up according to the theme. For example, you can use Christmas light and form them into a ghost for Halloween and just change how they look for thanksgiving and Christmas.
Use power friendly lights Eco-friendly lights are all over the market these days. You can get them in any shape and form, even as holiday lights. The great thing about these lights is that they last longer than most lights so you can use them again and again, and they use a fraction of the power to light up. LEDs are the most common type of eco-friendly lights and they’re a good investment.
Time your decoration By this, I mean to place a timer so your decorations will turn on and off on a schedule. This is a big help, especially if you’re forgetful and forget to turn things off. You can get these timers at any hardware store. For any comments or questions about LED lighting for the holidays, contact our customer support hotline.
