  • Turn to LED Holiday Lights this Season
    11/13/2017

    Everett, WA – Snohomish County PUD reminds you of the great value of LED (light-emitting diodes) holiday lights. They use a fraction of the energy used by a standard C7 holiday light or holiday mini-light. And the life expectancy of LED lights is 100,000 to 200,000 hours!

    Other benefits of LED holidays lights include:

    • If one bulb burns out, the rest of the string stays lit
    • LED lights are cool to the touch
    • You can use up to 20 strings together on one circuit

    The retail cost is around $10 to $15 per string of 70 lights. They are available at many retailers throughout the area. Look and ask for ENERGY STAR LEDs to make sure you are purchasing energy-efficient holiday lights.

    Other Winter Energy Savers

    There are a variety of other easy steps you can take to save energy and keep your home comfortable during the cooler months:

    • Check your crawlspace and attic insulation
    • Seal your ductwork
    • Seal cracks around doors and windows with weather stripping and caulk
    • Let the sun shine in!
    • Dress warmer when the days get colder.
    • Heat only the spaces you’re using.
    • Have your furnace and heat pump serviced
    • Upgrade to an electronic thermostat
    • Insulate outlets and light switches 
    • Install storm windows
    • Add a ceiling fan to circulate air
