Deck The Halls: 3 Money Saving Christmas Light Tips

Here are a few easy ways to save on your bill while still enjoying the holiday season:

1. Put your lights on a timer. Few holiday-goers are out and about at 2 am in the morning. Be sure to use a durable Christmas light timer that’s made to withstand the elements. Install it in a place that’s easy to access so you can make changes as the days get even shorter.

2. You might consider going LED. A bit pricier than traditional Christmas lights due to a more complicated manufacturing process, they use 80-90 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs. These lights don’t have exactly the same look as what you are used to, so you might consider getting a couple of sets to try at first.

3. Consider when you put your lights up. Most putting them up in early December and leave them up until January. Take a good look at your budget and see if this timing works for you. A week later and down by New Year’s may be the way to go.

Above all, enjoy your Christmas lights as you celebrate the Christmas season. For more information about electrical service and repair or electrical home safety, visit us at: www.universalhomeexperts.com.
