DAY 7 –  Christmas Lights and Energy Savings

For most of us who celebrate Christmas, the use of lights is a way to help create that cozy glow feeling that is prevalent during the season. However, these lights do contribute to energy consumption that has a direct effect on the environment and your pocketbook. Switching to LED lights is beneficial because they operate at a lower cost and are more energy efficient. These lights are bright and vibrant which also use up to a whopping 80% less energy than their conventional counterparts. Energy saving lights also last longer and help save on replacement costs. For use outside and inside, the benefits are clear as your energy consumption cost will be reduced while using a safer, cooler light.
