Consider LED for Your Calgary Christmas Light Displays

Consider LED for Your Calgary Christmas Light Displays

Christmas means spending time with loved ones, crisp white snow, decking the halls with boughs of holly, and hanging ever-so-festive Christmas lights throughout the home. When choosing your rows of lights, it’s worth considering the many benefits of opting for LED lights (Light Emitting Diode) over the traditional incandescent strings of lights that you may remember from childhood. LED lights will save you money and there are so many options for style and lighting colour these days that your Christmas display will stand out as the best Christmas house on the block.

Here is a Calgary electrician’s guide to the benefits of choosing LED Christmas lights this season!

The Benefits of LED Christmas Lights

Tis’ the season to make your home look festive with decorative and bright Christmas lights! But did you know that there are some big differences between Incandescent and LED lights? Here is everything you need to know before you make your decision:

  1. LED Christmas lights will save you money on your electricity bills. It’s easy to plug in strings of lights without giving much thought to the major bill that can come your way in the new year. But with LED Christmas lights on your home you don’t have to worry about that as they typically use 80-90% less electricity than the traditional style.
  2. LED lights have a much longer lifespan than incandescent. LED lights are meant to last the long haul with a lifespan approximately 30 times longer than than their incandescent counterparts. No more hanging all your lights just to discover half the bulbs are burnt out when you plug them in.
  3. LED Christmas lights come in a variety of styles, shapes, sizes and colours. Do you want white light icicles hanging from your roof eaves? Glowing wreaths hanging beside the garage door? There are LED options available for every application: trees, garlands, interior and exterior string lights, lanterns, and for whimsical front yard displays. And many light products offer you the option of changing colours… green, red, blue, white, even alternating light shows are possible with LED.
  4. LED lights are safer. LED lights are less prone to breakage and shattering, something traditional incandescents are susceptible to, especially in frigid, icy conditions.
  5. LED string lights are eco friendly. More people are looking for ways to enjoy the holidays all while minimizing their impact on the environment. LED lights are a great option for this as they last longer and use much less energy. We call this a win-win when holiday celebrations meet ecological responsibility.
