Christmas Lights Will Go Green This Year

As this year’s Christmas approaches, the choice of Christmas lights will definitely be an important issue for light manufacturers, sellers as well as millions of users. It is reported that the traditional but energy-thirsty incandescent Christmas lights are facing a dim future.

Holiday light bulbs were exempted from the federal law that’s phasing out other incandescent bulbs, and that seemingly ensured that they could keep decorating trees, decking halls and providing seasonal cheer. But now they’re being put to a test as fearsome as a government regulation: competition. LEDs – super-efficient lights that use a lot less energy than incandescent – have been around for years. LED stands for “light emitting diode,” which creates light by moving electrons over a semiconductor material, instead of heating up a filament, as a traditional bulb does.

Here below is a comparison between traditional Christmas lights and LED Christmas lights. It is regarded that LED Christmas lights have the following advantages.

  • Unlike conventional Christmas lights, they don't carry a risk of unsafe levels of lead.
  • If everyone switched to LED holiday lights, the United States would collectively save $410 million. That's a lot of presents.
  • LED lights carry a lower risk of fire, because they don't get as hot as conventional holiday lights. Trust us, having to call in a remodeling company to rebuild or repair your house after a holiday fire is no fun.
  • They're a cinch to program and control, for those setting up epic holiday light displays.
  • They have a long shelf life — buy LED lights today, and you won't be replacing them every few years as with conventional lights.
  • LED lights are weatherproof, letting you use them indoors and out with minimal risks, although you should make sure you are using an outlet approved for outdoor electrical use.
  • Like conventional holiday lights, they come in a range of colors and styles, including strands, nets and snowflakes.
  • Lower energy demand means less chance of overloading your breakers.
  • Cost wise. LEDs actually aren't more expensive than conventional lights, and in some cases clock in cheaper. A whole lot cheaper, in fact, if you take advantages of deals like this one offered by Home Depot.
