Types of Bulbs – LED Christmas Lights

New technology is constantly having an impact on our Christmas Light installation business and it is great to be a part of an industry that is constantly adapting to what is best for the environment.

Clients often ask us “do you have those LEAD lights?”  We always get a chuckle from that and to ease the confusion the lights are L-E-D and that stands for Light Emitting Diode.  An LED light bulb is a solid-state lamp that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as the source of light.  LEDs do not emit light in all directions, and their directional characteristics affect the design of lamps. The efficiency of conversion from electric power to light is generally higher than for incandescent lamps. Since the light output of many types of light-emitting diodes is small compared to incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps, in most applications multiple diodes are assembled.

LED light bulbs are more energy efficient than incandescent lights and this helps bring the annual operating costs of Christmas Lights down.  The initial cost for LEDs are more than for incandescent but this higher initial cost is recouped through the annual costs, less breakage, and longer warranty periods.

Incandescent Christmas Lights have been around for a long time and we understand for many people change is difficult however we are encouraging people to adapt to LEDs.  The biggest issues we have with incandescent bulbs are: breakage, flickering, bulbs burning out in one season, and energy use.  In our effort to improve the environmental impact our business has on the community we no longer supply or install incandescent lights.  Let us show you the amazing colours, brightness, and durability our LED Christmas Lights have.
