Merry, Bright and Efficient Christmas Lighting

Decking the halls doesn’t have to take a toll on your energy bill! Keep your Christmas lighting merry, bright and energy efficient with LED light strands.

  • Consider replacing older light strands with new ENERGY STAR LED® lights. LED strands are 70 percent more efficient and last 10 times longer than the age-old standard bulbs. And don’t forget to use your Ace Hardware LED lighting coupon that was in your November bill.
  • You can get the look of cozy lighting with LEDs. Just look for “warm white” on the label.
  • Unlike older light strands, LED lights give off virtually no heat, making them safer for kids and pets (and reindeer).
  • Save energy by setting a timer for outdoor lighting and decorations. Program the timer so the lights turn on in the evening and turn off later at night when you typically go to sleep.
