Make Your Home Energy-Efficient and Bright With These Holiday Lighting Tips

Home Lighting and Electronics, Seasonal and Holiday

Holiday lighting is serious business. If you don’t believe us, just ask Clark Griswold from Christmas Vacation. Do you want your home to be the brightest, best-looking, and most energy efficient house on the block? We’ve got you. Check out these easy, smart, energy-saving tips!

  • Use ENERGY STAR® certified LED light strands. LED holiday light strands are brighter, safer, cooler, last 10X longer, and use 70% less energy than traditional bulbs. Translation: No brainer.
  • Plug in with ADVANCED power strips. Do you like the idea of plugging in a ton of holidays lights into an old power strip? Yeah, that’s a nope. Use an ADVANCED power strip instead. You will save a bundle of electricity, and a ton of time untangling, with this safer, smarter option. You can also get a rebate from us! 
  • Set an automatic timer for no more than 8 hours. Nobody is looking at holiday lights at 3:40am, so why waste energy and money lighting up your home in the wee hours?
  • Get creative! Use reflective ornaments and tinsel that are just as bright as holiday lights at night, and use no electricity at all.
