Advantages of LED Holiday Lighting

"Going green" has become a part of our daily lives. We recycle paper and plastic. Our appliances and vehicles are also enegry efficient.  Going green with LED is now the choice in holiday lighting as well.

The price for LED lighting is a bit more than the standard incandescent bulbs we've seen in the past but the energy savings, longevity and low maintenance more than make up for the cost difference.

An LED bulb consumes only 1/10 the amount of energy of an incandescent bulb.  For example, a typical 50-light string of incandescent bulbs uses 20.4 watts of power, while our Pro-Grade 50-light strings only use either 2.4 or 4.8 watts per string (depending on the color) yet produce the same or even more output. That's a savings on your electric bill of 77% to 89%. And that's only the beginning……..

Longevity is another important advantage to using LED lighting. The standard incandescent mini lights are rated at 3,000 hours, our Pro-Graded Minibrites rate at…..are you ready for this? 50,000 hours!!!! That's approximately 16 times longer, which means 16 less times you'll need to replace the light string.

A few other advantages of using LED for your holiday lighting displays are LED lights are much smaller than the traditional bulb, making it much easier to put up your lights and allows you to be more creative in your holiday displays.  Have I mentioned that LED lights also operate much cooler than other bulbs?  In fact, they only exhibit a temperature variation of 1 degree, making them a much safer option than incandescent light sets. This gives you more freedom in decorating outdoor plants and greenery, which would be prone to catching fire if you used other bulbs.
