holiday light

'Tis the season for higher energy bills, and if you’ve recently started using tips to reduce your energy costs, you’re likely interested in finding ways to keep costs down throughout winter, from getting the most from your programmable thermostat to finding ways to make your holiday lights and energy efficiency work together. Not to worry, you can still decorate your home with glitter and glow without throwing your home's energy efficiency out the window, and here are a few ideas to help get you started.

Tips for Combining Holiday Lights and Energy Efficiency

  • You know those tangled bundles of half burned-out lights you have bundled away? Not only are they a frustrating mess to work with, they use a lot of electricity. Replace them with new energy-efficient options.
  • LED lights are becoming more and more popular. Due to their brilliant quality of light, they make gorgeous lights for holiday displays, plus they’re available in an array of colors.
  • If you’re worried that balancing your holiday lights and energy efficiency will look bland, don’t be. Energy-saving bulbs are available in a wide range of styles and colors, so take a look around and compare a few sets for energy usage and visual appeal. You can get any look you want with holiday lights, and saving energy doesn’t have to get lost in the mix.
  • Remember that unless you’re trying to out-shine and blind everyone in the neighborhood, less is more. Place your lights more strategically, and the results will give you all the sparkle but with a cleaner appearance.
  • Don’t forget about decorations that don’t need electricity! Shiny decorations like tinsel can be used to reflect and glitter around your lights. You can even use energy-efficient window coverings like festive draperies to boost your home’s energy efficiency.
  • Without the temptation of just throwing around tons of lights, you can use more care and creativity to achieve beautiful and unique results.
