Deck the halls with energy-efficient holiday lights and safety in mind (11/27/2017)

Now’s the time to break out all your favorite family traditions. The cookie cutters, the wrapping paper—everything but your old inefficient holiday lights. Because this is the year to have your house sparkle with help from a more energy-efficient option: LED holiday lights. They’re bright, available in a wide variety of shapes, strings and sizes, and can last up to 40 holiday seasons long. Even better, LED holiday lights use 90% less energy than traditional lights do. That’s a lot of sparkle and a lot of savings. Which gives your family just one more thing to celebrate this holiday season.

The holidays just wouldn’t be the same without strands of bright bulbs lighting up the neighborhood. Protect your home and family this holiday season by taking a few common-sense precautions with your decorations:

  • Replace lights that have broken sockets or frayed wires.

  • Buy only lights that have been certified by a national testing laboratory.

  • Connect no more than three strands of lights to each other or to one extension cord.

  • Fasten lights to your house with hooks or insulated staples, never nails or tacks.

  • Keep trees, boxes and wrapping paper away from heat sources.

  • Remind children never to touch lights or plugs.

  • Remember to unplug lights when you go to bed.

  • Always turn off holiday lights before you leave home.

Happy Holidays from Sturgeon Bay Utilities
