To LED or not this holiday season

Do LED holiday lights cost more than incandescent? Yes. Are LED lights a worthwhile investment? Yes. Here are the many reasons you should consider spending a little more to invest in LED lights this holiday season:

• LED lights are more energy efficient than incandescent lights. A whopping 90 percent of the energy produced by incandescent bulbs is released in the form of heat. LEDs use nearly 75 percent less energy than incandescent and last up to 25 times longer!
• LED lights are cool to the touch which makes them a safer option around Christmas trees, wreaths, pets, kids and more!
• LED bulbs don’t burn out. Rather than burning out, LEDs get dimmer over time. In addition to their long lives, these bulbs are plastic and durable which means you don’t have to spend time carefully wrapping them away for next year.
• LED lights come in a variety of styles. They even have LED rope, net and icicle lights!

Although LED lights still cost more than traditional lights, the price tag is extremely reasonable considering all the benefits that LED lights offer. Better yet, tis the season of sales which means you can likely snag some LED lights for a seriously jolly deal. For more energy saving tips, visit
