L.E.D.'s use a fraction of the energy as standard incandescent Christmas lighting and last several times longer. In fact, it's possible to use the same set of L.E.D. Christmas lights for your entire life
Lenexa, KS (PRWEB) November 13, 2008
Decorating for the holidays can be extremely expensive. It seems that the jollier you are in December the quicker your Christmas spirit dissipates when the electric bill arrives in January. While you're dreaming of a "White Christmas", Light Bulbs Etc., Inc. is committed to helping their customers realize their dreams of a "Green Christmas" with its newly expanded line of environmentally friendly, energy saving L.E.D. Christmas lighting.
According to Sean Derning, Website Manger for Light Bulbs Etc., Inc., L.E.D. technology is ideal for Christmas lighting applications. Sean states, "L.E.D.'s use a fraction of the energy as standard incandescent Christmas lighting and last several times longer. In fact, it's possible to use the same set of L.E.D. Christmas lights for your entire life". Some L.E.D. Christmas lights in the Light Bulbs Etc., Inc. line are rated at 100,000 hours of life, which equates to over 11 years of continuous use. Further, L.E.D. Christmas lighting uses 75-80% less energy than standard incandescents. L.E.D. Christmas lights may be used indoors or out and produce relatively little heat compared to incandescent Christmas lights.
Light Bulbs Etc., Inc. carries a wide variety of L.E.D. string sets. Lengths range from 12 feet, using a total of 1.6 watts for the entire string, to 41 feet, using only 9.1 watts per string (compare that to the 53 watts used by an incandescent string of the same length). Several shapes and styles are available as well as multi-colored diode and solid colored diode string sets. (http://www.lightbulbsdirect.com/page/001/CTGY/XmasLED)
In addition to string sets, Light Bulbs Etc., Inc. carries L.E.D. C7 and C9 replacement bulbs for retrofitting existing incandescent string sets. Traditionally, C7 and C9 bulbs are used outdoors to decorate homes and businesses and are thus subjected to harsh conditions. L.E.D. technology is ideal for replacing traditional C7 and C9 bulbs. The primary advantage of L.E.D. over incandescent is that L.E.D.s do not rely on fragile incandescent filaments to produce their light. Instead, L.E.D. lighting uses a virtually indestructible diode that can withstand rough treatment and vibration caused by wind, installation, and storage. Another advantage is that L.E.D. Christmas lights use a thick plastic exterior rather than glass and will withstand substantially tougher treatment. An L.E.D. C7 uses only .96 watts per bulb (compared to 5 watts using incandescent), and and L.E.D. C9 uses just 1.6 watts per bulb (compared to 7 watts using incandescent) while still providing comparable light.
Light Bulbs Etc., Inc. continues to stock a wide variety of more traditional incandescent and halogen Christmas lighting. These items include a wide a variety of C7 and C9 bulbs, both in ceramic and transparent, colored incandescent and halogen flood lights, colored A-shape bulbs, and colored landscape bulbs.
