Deck The Halls With Lights And Safety

Published On: December 04, 2014

Fa la la la la…Yes, it is time for unraveling lights, stringing garland and flipping the switch with fingers crossed that all the bulbs work.  Decorating season is here, and there is no better time to replace old products, review safety and save energy.

There are many options for holiday decorations, especially when it comes to lighting.  LED lighting can save energy and money by consuming 75% less electricity.  The traditional 100 light holiday string can use around 40 watts of energy.  Multiply that by your amount of connected light strings and the energy usage can add up fast.
