Know your Bulbs
10.3.18

Holiday lights can come in different sizes and luminance. It is important that you know what desired effect you are looking for when you are lighting your home or business.

There are two options for lighting now. The traditional incandescent bulbs, or LED lighting. LED has become a widely popular option for consumers due to it's longevity and low energy consumption. 

Pros of LEDs​

1.) You can typically connect 8 to 10 times more mini light strings together end to end while only using one plug outlet. Most traditional Christmas mini lights only allow you to connect 4 or 5 sets end to end but with many LED mini light strings you can connect 40 to 50+ together depending on the light count. This makes decorating far easier.

2.) LEDs produce next to no heat, which means they're always cool to the touch and safe for children and animals to be around all season.

3.) LEDs produce vivid colors and bright lights, including styles that are dimmable.

4.) Many LED light sets are rated to last tens of thousands of hours, which is well beyond a traditional set of incandescent mini lights that typically may last only a season or two.

Bottomline: LED Christmas lights are much easier to use for large Christmas displays, they are safer, they last longer, they produce more vivid color and use up to 90% less energy. Now you know why so many people have already made the switch.
