Use LED lights to light up holiday, lower energy costs
Besides being brighter than the Clark Griswold’s house in “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” there are many reasons to consider investing in LED lights this holiday season:
– LED lights are more energy efficient than incandescent lights. Did you know that 90 percent of the energy produced by incandescent bulbs is released in the form of heat? LEDs use nearly 75 percent less energy than incandescent and last up to 25 times longer.
– LED lights are cool to the touch, which makes them a safer option around Christmas trees, wreaths, pets, children and more.
– LED bulbs don’t burn out. Rather than burning out, LEDs get dimmer over time. In addition to their long lives, these bulbs are plastic and durable which means you don’t have to spend time carefully wrapping them away for next year.
– LED lights come in a every style imaginable.
Although the cost of LED lights is still more pricey than traditional bulbs, the benefits far outweigh a few extra bucks. And those extra bucks are truly an investment in bright, beautiful, energy-efficient lights for many years to come.
