Christmas Eve is made visible and felt across the world with a massive display of lights, as it is with most festivals. And this often results in massive load on power grids and leads to power cut in areas where power supply is edgy. However in today’s modern and “smart technology” age, do we really need to put that burden? A simple change in the kind of bulb that you use can be the answer to having a lighted, yet, energy efficient Merry Christmas.

Here are a few tips which can help you go about this easy transformation:
Home lighting :
- Use smaller LED lights as they save 90% of the electricity against regular incandescent bulbs.
- Make sure all light sockets have bulbs in them. It acts as a safety tips for children.
- Keep bulbs from touching tree branches. If the tree is wet the bulb is bound to fuse.
- Never use lights on a metallic tree. If the lights become faulty, the entire tree could be electrified.
- Be careful not to overload extension cords, outlets or even whole circuits in the house. This may blow off the entire power supply to your home or even the neighbourhood.
- Turn off decorative lighting when you leave the room.
- If your budget permits, use smart lighting technology for your home as well as the tree. This goes a long way in saving power during times when no one is around.
- Make sure the lights used are designated for outdoor use. They are often more resistive to moisture and mist.
- Use a non-conducting fiberglass or wooden ladder when working with strings of lights. Also, stay clear of all overhead wires.
- Never let light bulbs touch flammable materials such as plastic or dry grass and leaves. This will not just fuse the bulb but may even set the items on fire.
- Turn outside holiday lights off when away from home or asleep. Better even, use smart lighting technology.
