So, why LED lights? LED lights are the latest in technology in Christmas decorating. As professional decorators we find that LED lights give us much more flexibility in the amount of light bulbs that we can use in any given display. There is also a power saving associated with the LED technology. The LED lights use approximately 10% less energy than our old fashioned incandescent lights.
We are able to have grander and brighter displays than ever before—while consuming less power than a conventional bulb. They also have an acrylic outside shell which makes them unbreakable thus making them ideal for outdoor applications. They are resilient and do not break as easily.

The life expectancy of the LED bulb is also longer. At one time people were saying LED would last 50,000 hours while the old fashioned bulb last about 2,000 hours. This new technology hasn’t been around that long so time will tell. We are seeing about 20 to 30,000 hours out of LED’S. The bulb itself will sometimes outlive the wires that hold it, the plug mounts, etc.
We are still very excited about the technology. Every year competition in the industry has led to the LED’s becoming cheaper and more reliable. This will be the bulb of the future and the standard norm for all outdoor and indoor lighting needs to come. Some of the draw backs are that not all LED are dimmable at this time which can hinder the animation on some projects. In addition, the high cost of the LED production cost us more to acquire the inventory than the old incandescent lights did, but with the added life expectancy it should level out with a few years. With factories ramping up production and material cost leveling off we should see more affordable LED’s in the future.
