What are the advantages of using LED Holiday Lights?

LED lighting offers many benefits compared to standard holiday lights. LEDs are:

  • More energy efficient. LED holiday lights use up to 90% less energy than standard incandescent holiday lights.
  • Longer lasting. LED lights can last up to 10 times longer.
  • More convenient. LED holiday lights are available in a variety of sizes and colors. If a bulb burns out, the other bulbs will stay lit so bad bulbs can easily be replaced.
  • Safer. LED lights produce almost no heat and donˇ¦t have the same components that cause traditional lights to burn out or combust.
  • Sturdier. These bulbs wonˇ¦t break. In fact the casing for the diode is solid plastic so it's almost impossible to break.


In these tough economic times, LED holiday lights will allow consumers to maintain their time honored tradition of decorating homes and trees without having to worry about excess electricity costs,¨ said Mike Plunkett of Focus on Energy.
