When we say the word “Christmas,” images of stark white snowy backdrops, a crackling fireplace, and the steady blinking glow of Christmas lights come to mind. Lighting has always played an important part in Christmas decor. Many homeowners think that their decor just isn’t complete without these pretty lights in their home.
LED – or light-emitting diode – is a popular lighting alternative as it consumes less energy. This advancement in technology has allowed Christmas light manufacturers to incorporate this into their products. LED lights do not heat up as much as traditional bulbs, which makes them safer and less of a fire hazard.
Pre-lit Christmas trees with LED lights are a popular option since they consume less energy. As a safety bonus, since the tree itself comes with lights, you don’t have to worry about the lights being too hot for the tree – these trees are specifically designed to work with the lights.
If you’re considering a pre-lit tree, you may want to look into LED options to save on your electricity bill.
