If you’re looking for more efficient holiday lighting this year, LED lights may be the way to go. As this article describes, LED (light-emitting diode) lights offer quality lighting and energy efficiency. Once their design improves, LEDs will probably replace all other lighting options, even the new florescent bulbs. Here are some of their benefits.
- They use one-fifth the energy of normal bulbs.
- They last 50,000 to 100,000 hours compared to only 1,000 hours of a standard bulb.
- They do not produce much heat and do not contain hazardous materials.
- They are much more durable than standard bulbs.
The only real downside to LED Christmas lights is that they are more expensive than conventional Christmas lights. However, you can make up the additional expense with the money you’ll save not replacing bulbs and on your electric bill.
