Energy Efficient LED Holiday Lights
Surprise everyone, whether you believe it or not, the holidays are coming around the corner. How can you tell? When holiday merchandise are just now getting stocked at your local Walmart or supermarket chainstore. Well this post is aimed at getting those who choose to celebrate the holidays with lighting, that you do so in an environmentally friendly way. LED Christmas lights, are way energy efficient and have a whole list of benefits over their incandescent counterparts. Here are some major reasons why you should make the switch:
1.) 90% more efficient over incandescent lighting
2.) extremely durable by means of tough plastic
3.) safe, LED’s operate at 1 degree over ambient temp.
4.) LED lighting will last up to 50,000 hours long
5.) Environmentally friendly by means of energy efficiency
The website is now offering a 10% off as pre-season sale on orders of $50. The LED lights also come with a full lifetime warranty so you can have peace of mind that they will last you for a very long time. With energy saving environmental LED lighting, the amount of energy you save will pay for the cost of the lights over time. These cool holiday lights are really a win win for everyone.
To help you save even more energy, there is a device called a conserve socket. It is made by Belkin, and it is a product designed to plug in electronics that you want to stop vampire energy from being used or to time your electronics so they aren’t running 24 hours a day. My suggestion is that you make this a part of your holiday setup if you are planning on setting up lights. That way you can plug your lighting into this socket, and press the button to keep the lights on for a few hours while you’re awake, but then they turn off after certain amount of time. This will help keep your electricity bills down during the holidays in addition to using LED lighting over incandescent.
In all reality, it is my opinion that putting up holiday lights is nothing but a big waste of energy. However, if you do put up lights this year, please make the eco-friendly choice and use energy efficient LED’s instead.
