Switching to LED Christmas Lights

The holiday season is usually synonymous with Christmas trees, festive decorations, and bright lights. Homes around the world put out their holiday best, stringing their trees and home exteriors in bright decorative lights to beautifully welcome the season.  However, such decorations do come at a steep price.

Holiday lights, for example, are usually to blame for the rising electricity bill during the last two months of the year. Additionally, covering a home in incandescent lights heightens the risk of house fires brought about by malfunctioning light bulbs, which are sometimes difficult to spot. It doesn’t help either that damaged Christmas lights are expensive to replace. So save a little this Christmas by incorporating LED Christmas lights into your holiday lighting design. After all, the pros of the product easily outweigh the cons of its initial expense.

Energy Efficient

With the popularity of green living, many are looking for ways to have a more energy efficient household. This is where LED lights really shine. Studies have shown that LED lights generally use about 3-33% less energy than its incandescent counterparts. This results in huge savings on your home electricity bill which in turn lowers your overall carbon footprint.

Remains Cool

Since Christmas lights are always in close proximity to other combustible objects, such as trees and curtains, it is imperative that the bulbs remain cool throughout the season. Since the lights are usually turned on throughout the night, especially when you have guests coming over, having overheated bulbs increases the chances of an electrical fire or at the very least, a damaged string of Christmas lights. With LED lights, you are assured that the bulbs will remain cool to the touch as the night wears on due to its innovative design.

Sturdy & Reliable

Unlike incandescent lights which are encased in glass or plastic casings, LED lights are sturdily encased in epoxy casing making them highly resistant to breakage. Its usage of a non-filament lighting source also eliminates burn out and damage when accidentally dropped, so there won’t be any need for bulb replacements.

Candlelight LEDs

Despite these benefits, some homeowners opt to stick to the traditional Christmas lights because of their softer and more relaxing glow. If the brightness of LED lights is too intense for your sophisticated holiday setting, turn to an innovative design called Candlelight LEDs. Exclusive to Balam Hill, these lights have a warmer glow and real glass casings, making them look like classic Christmas lights. For fuss-free decorating, you can also choose from stylish trees that are already expertly strung with candlelight LED lights like the  Balsam Hill Noble Fir.

Make the switch to LED lights and enjoy many beautifully illuminated Christmases with your family.
