When stringing Christmas lights for the holidays, few people stop to think about the potential for a large utility bill at the end the season or, even worse, the possibility those illuminating bulbs could be a fire hazard. If the traditional, incandescent lights are being used, either of those scenarios is possible. That’s why more people are making the switch to light emitting diode (LED) Christmas lights. By using a tiny piece of semi conductor material, LED Christmas lights forego the gas-filled bulb or tube to produce light. This allows them to be more efficient, durable and safer. For example, an LED light will use 1-3 kilowatt hours of energy, while an incandescent version will burn 12-105 kilowatt hours of energy. LEDs also burn much less hot, making them less of a hazard, and last longer.
While LED Christmas lights come in a variety of colors, white adds a simple, elegant touch to holiday decorating. There is also a wide range of shapes and designs, allowing creativity to shine during the season. In addition to the traditional LED white Christmas lights that are strung together, snowflake shaped lights can be draped around the house. The same goes for icicle lights, which come in long- or short-form and can be hung from the house or trees. White LED rope lights can be wrapped around a post or a tree or can be used to mark a pathway. Net LED Christmas lights make decorating a bush a breeze compared to stringing together several strands of lights.
White LED Christmas lights add a touch of elegance and simplicity to holiday decorating while also having the bonus of using less energy and staying cooler when in use. Their many designs, combined with the white lights, can reflect the snowfall and enhance any wintry scene.
