Be safe, Be Savvy!

Whether you’re hanging up lights outside or setting up a Christmas tree inside, the holidays pose a number of risks. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has some great tips for keeping it safe this holiday season.

Additionally, many newer lights now have LED or low wattage options. You can conserve energy during the day by using plugs with photocells, timers, or smart plugs.
