Easy ways to save money and energy this vacation

  • Light with LEDs.LED decorations can use more than 50 percent less energy than traditional incandescent decorations and last up to 10 times longer.
  • Find festive fiberglass.The technology uses a light source that flows through a fiber optic cable to multiple visible points of light.
  • timing matters.Use smart plugs and timers to ensure Christmas decorations are only used when people are home or awake to enjoy them.

When partying, keep safety first

  • Check your outlets. Look for outlets with loose plugs, exposed wires, or broken plates and have a qualified electrician repair them. Use safety covers on all sockets accessible to children.
  • Check for damaged wires. Check each set of lights, new or old, for broken or cracked sockets, frayed or bare wires, or loose connections. Discard damaged kits or repair before use.
  • Watch out for lines and bars. Ensure decorations are placed away from utility poles, wires, and the building’s primary electrical connection or connection point, and use caution when using ladders or working from the ground.
  • Be extra careful outdoors. Use only lamps and extension cords rated for outdoor use, and keep electrical connections above ground and away from areas where water can collect.
  • Cut the tree safely.Use only non-combustible or flame retardant materials to trim a tree.
