Holiday Lighting and Energy Efficiency Can Go Hand in Hand With These Tips

Holiday lights strung around your home are essential to giving it the cozy, nostalgic feeling that helps make the season feel complete. The warm glow, however, contributes to high energy consumption during the holidays. With the latest earth-friendly lights available on the market, melding holiday lighting and energy efficiency is simpler than ever.

Tips for Holiday Lighting and Energy Efficiency

  • Use LED lights. Strung LED, or light-emitting diode, lights are available in abundance and in a variety of colors. In addition to producing a glow that’s brighter than traditional lights, they consume 80 percent less energy, last longer and emit less carbon dioxide. LED bulbs stay cool because they do not have a filament, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally burning yourself when you touch them or scorching your tree.
  • Consider going solar. Take holiday lighting and energy efficiency even further by using solar-powered LED lights to decorate the outside of your home. The sun is unlimited source of energy, and the San Antonio area is lucky enough to have an abundance of sunlight during the holiday season. You may also find solar-powered LED lights that you can use indoors for even more energy savings.
  • Use an automatic timer. With the bustle of the holiday season, it may be simple to forget to unplug your holiday lights. Set an automatic timer so your lights turn on and off at the same time every day to help make holiday lighting and energy efficiency a no-brainer this season. You can generally find automatic timers in the light bulb section of a home improvement store.
  • Choose high-efficiency lighting. While shopping for holiday lights, consider switching the traditional light bulbs in your home with their energy-efficient counterparts, too. These bulbs are available in a range of shapes, sizes and fittings, and last up to 12 times longer.
