LED Christmas Lights

Rather than pull out your old Christmas lights, this year consider switching to new LED Christmas lights.

The technology behind LEDs makes them much more energy efficient than traditional lights. LED bulbs can last up to 100,000 hours, so there's far less chance that you'll be stuck with the dreaded task of searching for a blown-out bulb.

LED lights are also cheaper to operate. Replacing standard Christmas lights with LED lights can reduce your energy consumption by a whopping 99 percent!

The bulbs are less likely to break and run at cooler temperatures, making them a safer choice for use on Christmas trees or in outdoor lighting displays.
