Would saving money on your electric bill put you in a festive mood? If so, think about replacing your incandescent holiday lights with LED lights.
LEDs use 70-90% less energy than regular holiday lights, last up to 10 times longer, and are cool to the touch, reducing the risk of injury or fire. All stores now carry LED holiday lights, including Home Depot and Target.
Be sure to recycle your used, old or broken incandescent holiday lights at your local The Home Depot store, or you can mail them in to HolidayLEDs.com. Here’s some additional tips on Recycling Holiday Lights from Earth911.
