Switch To This Heavenly Bit of Technology To Light Things Up Using Very Little Energy
What are the holiday lights at the end of the tunnel?
Aren't you just dying to know? Easy: LED holiday lights. Switch to this heavenly little bit of technology to light things up using very little energy.
• Flatlining energy bills. LED bulbs use 90% less electricity than traditional holiday bulbs.
• More cash on the other side. Burning 10 strands of lights with 100 lights per strand, 8 hours per day for a month costs an average of $175 for incandescent bulbs vs. about $1 for LED minibulbs.
• Killing off holiday hassle. With their 20-year lifetimes, you don't have to replace LED light strings as often as conventional ones.
• Seeing the light, not heating it. Incandescent lights give off as much as 90% of the energy they consume as heat, so they're more likely to cause fires. LEDs are touch-ably cool.
