LED Lighting

LED lighting is more efficient, durable, versatile and longer lasting than incandescent and fluorescent lighting. LEDs emit light in a specific direction, whereas an incandescent or fluorescent bulb emits light – and heat – in all directions. LED lighting uses both light and energy more efficiently.

Use LED holiday lights
LED holiday lights can save 80-90 percent more energy when compared to incandescent lights. They’re made in the same shapes and varieties as standard lights, stay cool to the touch, and last longer – roughly 20,000 hours. The Department of Energy estimates that if American households and businesses switched to LED holiday lights, it would save close to the output of a large (1,000 MW) electric power plant, or the annual electrical consumption of 500,000 households.

Benefits include:

  • Energy-efficient – 0.08 watts per LED C7 multicolor bulb (compared with 0.48 watts for an incandescent mini-light and 6.0 watts for a standard incandescent C7 bulb.)
  • Long life span
  • Safety – cool to the touch, no matter how long they are left on.
  • Sturdy bulbs – epoxy lenses are practically indestructible.

Despite a higher initial cost, LEDs are a clear winner over incandescent C7 lights when you compare the cost to purchase and operate a system for five years (and beyond).
