LED Christmas Lights: Brightening Up Your Holidays in All Shapes, Colors, and Sizes!
While LED light technology has been around for some time, LEDs have quickly become the lighting of choice for those who value the combination of energy efficiency and long-lasting beauty. LED holiday lights are truly the choice of the future, providing many benefits over traditional Christmas lights.
From creating a dramatic backdrop with white mini lights, to brightening an entrance way with festive multicolored lights, LED lighting offers many dazzling options for your lighting needs. The right lighting lifts spirits, creates a mood, adds sparkle, and even inspires romance. That’s why it’s so important to make the best choice of lighting for your home, for the holidays, and for special events. LED Christmas lights are a brilliant choice, whether for holiday decorating, special occasions, or simply for illuminating key areas around your home.
LED lights use up to 80% less electricity than incandescent bulbs to power the same number of lights. You will see an immediate reduction in your electric bill, and continue to save money every holiday season.
What Sets LED Christmas Lights Apart from the Pack?
So what is it about LED lights that sets them apart from the more traditional holiday lights? The answer is in how LEDs work, LED is a semiconductor light source that has proven to be more advantageous over incandescent or fluorescent light sources. The following are just some of the advantages of LED lighting:
- LED light bulbs last longer
LED lights are rated to last for 50,000 hours or more, compared to the 1500-hour lifespan of typical incandescent bulbs, meaning they can last nearly 35 times longer than traditional bulbs.
- Energy efficient and environmentally friendly
A set of high-quality LED lights should last you for a good number of years. LED Christmas mini-lights or the regular-sized ones are less likely to break because of the plastic encasing used, unlike the clear Christmas lights, which are encased in glass. Using less electricity and replacing bulbs less frequently helps reduce your carbon footprint, and save waste from bulb and wire replacement.
- More durable color and construction
Unlike plastic-encased incandescent holiday lights,the colors of LED Christmas lights don't fade and will remain as color-bright as they were the first time you used them. LEDs do not contain delicate filaments that are easily damaged or will burn out. They are made with a tough plastic casing that can stand up to being dropped and handled year after year.
LED Lights are the Safe, Smart Decision for Homeowners
LED Christmas lights are cool to the touch, and a much safer alternative than traditional incandescent bulbs. You can safely leave them on for hours without worrying about the combination of hot lights, dry greenery, and holiday wrappings. Considering the benefits of LED Christmas lights being safer, more durable, brighter, and less of a fire hazard, they are quickly becoming the popular choice for home and commercial lighting projects.
