Reasons to Switch to LED Christmas Lights

Only recently have homes deviated from the same annual Christmas lighting installation routine.  It used to be that someone would open the box of lights and the lights were inevitably in a tangled mess.  Then everyone in the home would sit for hours untangling the lights in order to check to see if they still worked. Of course, there would always be one strand that would refuse to light up, which would lead to everyone’s favourite guessing game: which bulb is the burnt out one?  On and on and on it would go.  Enough of this madness!  It’s time to ask Christmas Decor lighting service in Oakville to dress your home in LED lights.  The savings in time, stress, and on your energy bill will be well worth the change. 

What are LED Lights?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes.  They are constructed from tiny solid-state chips that convert electricity to light without the use of a filament or glass bulb.  LED lights encapsulate solid-state chips in solid epoxy plastic that can be made into a variety of shapes and sizes.  Luckily for you and your Christmas lighting installation, this epoxy plastic is nearly indestructible, unlike the fragile glass and filaments of old-style Christmas lights.

If you think you can mix and match your old Christmas lights with new LED options, you are mistaken.  Never ever connect these two lighting types.  LED lights contain a tiny fuse that could easily be blown when connected to the amount of electricity regular lights draw.  Instead, ask your Oakville Christmas lighting service to illuminate your house using only LED lights.

Reasons to Switch to LED Lights in Your Christmas Lighting Installation

There are a number of reasons you will want to ask your representatives from Christmas Decor to use energy-efficient LED lights in your Christmas lighting installation.

  • Did you know that 14 people die a year from Christmas tree fires?  The bulbs of LED lights remain cool to the touch.  This reduces the threat of fire.  LED lights convert energy to light not heat.
  • One burnt out bulb doesn’t make the whole string go out.
  • LED lamps are rated for 50,000 – 200,000 hours of use compared to the 1,500-2,000 hours for regular lights.
  • Not only are LED epoxy casings nearly indestructible, they are also not sensitive to vibration.  Nothing makes Christmas decorations better than durability!
  • LED lights are dimmable, lightweight, and compact, making them extremely versatile.
  • LED lamps are rust-proof and zinc coated, so they are a very good choice for outdoors lighting installations.
  • No power converters or transformers are required.  Just plug in and go.
  • The colour doesn’t fade, ever!
  • They aren’t expensive. In fact, they’re very similar in price to traditional Christmas lights.
  • LED lights only use 10% of the electricity of regular Christmas lights. Those savings add up fast, especially during the holiday season! How you use that extra money is up to you; spend it on someone special or indulge yourself!

With their durability and the incredible savings, there’s no reason not to ask your Christmas Decor holiday lighting service to install some LED Christmas lights this season.  Contact Christmas Decor for more information!
