LED (light emitting diode) lighting is a high efficiency, long lasting light source.   LED lights are very versatile and today the lights are used in many products including (but not limited to)  Christmas TreesTree ToppersWreathsYard Art, Decorations and  Wax-less Candles

Saves Energy

Compared to incandescent lights which use 300 watts of energy for a set of 50 lights, a set of 50 LED lights uses only 4 watts of energy.  This will save you up to 90% on your energy bill while helping to reduce your carbon footprint.  In the United States, if we replaced 25% of light bulbs with LED lights it would save over $115 billion dollars in energy costs.

Cool To the Touch

Unlike your standard incandescent lights that get hot after being lit for a few hours, LED lights always stay cool to the touch.  LED lights will not generate heat so they don't warm up your home and can be used all year round without the need to turn up the air conditioner.  3.4 BTU's per hour are generated from LED lights compared to 85 BTU's per hour for incandescent bulbs.

Longer Life

Led lights typically last 100 times longer than your traditional incandescent lights which will save you money in the long run.  Less time and money will be spent on replacing burnt-out bulbs because the lights are sure to last year after year.  LED lights generally have a 100,000 hour life compared to 2,000 hours for incandescent bulbs.  The long life that LED lights have is not only soft on your pocket book but it reduces the amount of waste that is disposed of, hence reducing environmental impacts.  Unlike other types of lighting, the life of LED lights is not affected when they are turned on/off.

Brighter and More Colorful Bulbs

LED lights come in every color imaginable they are available in  red, green,  purplepinkblueyelloworangeclear and  multi color bulbs. The colors are more saturated and the bulbs are 10 times brighter than incandescent lights.  Not only are numerous colors of Led lights available but you can also find the strand of lights with a white wire or  green wire.


LED lights do not contain a filament which means they will not break as easily, they are solid and hold-up well under stress.  

Mercury Free

Unlike some fluorescent and CFL lights, LED lights do not contain Mercury so there is no risk of toxic exposure.  You can feel at ease using LED lights in your home around your family and friends.
