Christmas is coming, which means households, businesses and venues all around the country will be adorning their walls, trees and brickwork with pretty lights. While many might be dusting off their old set of bulbs from previous years, 2016 may be the time to invest in new, modern LED lights instead.

Here are just a few benefits of doing so:

 

1)   More lights

Connecting many sets of lights to one plug socket can be dangerous when using traditional bulbs. However, as the electricity usage is much lower with LED ones, you can safely attach between eight and ten more strings without it becoming a fire hazard. Therefore, you can really make your premises sparkle during the festive season!

 

2)   Last longer

 Now that Bonfire Night has been and gone, many businesses have already started gearing up for Christmas, which includes putting out their decorations. However, if you use traditional bulbs, you might find yourself having to change the fittings before December 25th arrives, as they may not last the next few weeks. However, with LED lights, you can be confident your decorations will remain as bright on New Year’s Day as they are right now, as LED bulbs are intended to last thousands of hours.

 

3)   Cool to touch

While Christmas is the season to be jolly, it also poses a fire risk when utilising many light fittings. This is because traditional bulbs emit heat and anyone who touches them risks getting burnt. However, as LED lights produce very little heat, you do not have to worry about your fairylights becoming a health and safety issue, particularly around small children.

 

4)   Energy-efficient

Christmas is an expensive time of the year for everyone, which is why so many of us look for ways to save money. By using LED bulbs, you can reduce the amount of electricity you use significantly, as they are 80 to 90 per cent energy efficient, compared with incandescent bulbs that are only 20 per cent energy efficient. Therefore, you will save considerably on your energy bills by switching to LED lights, which will certainly help with your finances in the New Year.
