A true first sign that holiday spirit is in the air is when neighbourhoods start lighting up with decorations. Whatever your favourite – multi-coloured lights, red and green, solid blue, white icicles, flashing lights, projection lights, lights synchronized to music, inflatable lawn ornaments – it’s important to keep energy efficiency in mind (ENERGY STAR® certified LED lights are best), as well as safety.
Here are some safety tips to help you and your family prevent electrical hazards and stay safe this holiday season.
Holiday Lighting Preparation:
Inspect holiday lights and electrical ornaments for damage. Discard anything with frayed cords, exposed wires, or cracked bulb holders.
