Use LED holiday lights
Holiday lights can add charm to your home, but they also increase your electricity bill. If you are in the market for new holiday lights, purchase light-emitting diode (LED) lights instead of standard incandescent lights.
- Although LED lights may cost more upfront, they save money in the long run because they are 65% more energy efficient and last longer.
- LED holiday lights are cooler than incandescent bulbs, so they have less risk of fire and injury.
- Because they use less power, it is safer to connect multiple strings of holiday lights end-to-end without overloading the wall socket.
