  1. You Save Money.

According to Energy Star, LED light bulbs use up to 90% less energy. That results in a $50 energy savings for an average family during the holidays.

  1. However, They Cost More.

A standard string of incandescent bulbs can cost around $5 to $7 whereas LED bulbs can cost around $10 and up.

  1. LED Lights Last Longer.

LED bulbs can last you all season long — and then some! They can approximately last up to 50,000 hours, which means the jolly season can last 5 years if you want it to!

  1. You Can String A Large Amount.

To be safe, you shouldn’t connect more than three light strings. However, with LED light strands, you can connect up to at least 10 — sometimes even 87 — totaling 1,500 feet!

  1. LED Lights Have A Brighter Hue.

Colored and even white LED holiday lights are more vibrant in color than conventional lights, so some people like to stick to their old set. Check the LED label to see if the bulbs you are choosing have a bright or warm white hue to avoid this issue.

  1. They Reduce Fires.

Since LED lights stay cooler, they reduce home fires!

LED holiday lights are a great alternative to incandescent bulbs. However, if there’s ever an issue with your electric, the experts at Jupiter-Tequesta Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electric are more than happy to come help (no matter the bulb selection)! Give us a call to learn more!
