An LED Christmas Part II

As promised, here are the other LED lighting advantages that are sure to bring a cheery holiday smile to the face of energy conscious folks everywhere.


Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

Everybody loves a lively Christmas tree or outdoor light display.  In fact, many people make use of Christmas lights that are synchronized with music, or that strobe in fun patterns.  The Solid State nature of LEDs make them perfect for applications that switch on and off with great frequency, because they don’t contain any moving parts and their life expectancy is not affected by on/off cycling, whereas the life expectancy of incandescent bulbs is adversely affected by how often they are switched on and off.


Chestnuts Roasting on an Incandescent

Incandescent lighting makes use of an electrically resistive element, like tungsten, inside of a vacuum-sealed globe that contains an inert gas.  By way of that resistance, the tungsten is heated to a point that it gets “white hot” and finally begins to emit some visible light (photons).  In other words, incandescent technology is better at generating heat than it is at generating visible light energy.  LEDs are a semiconductor and thus have a resistive element to them as well.  However, it takes much less energy in order to cause an LED to start spilling photons (emitting light) than it does an incandescent.  As a result, LEDs dissipate much less heat and conserve much more electrical energy…  Ironically, those of you that live in areas that actually experience a “white Christmas” might welcome the added heat of an incandescent bulb during the frigid cold winter months, right up until we have to go outside to change the failed bulbs.  J


I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus Because He Saved Her so Much on Her Energy Bill

LED lights can often utilize 70-90% less energy than incandescent lights and they don’t contain any hazardous materials, two factors that are sure to keep you off of Santa’s “naughty” list around the holidays.  Not to mention, the money that you save on your electric bill can be used to pay for all the Christmas ham that you and your loved ones can eat!


The Gift of LEDs

Energy efficient LED lighting makes a great gift for your family or friends around the holiday season.  It’s a gift that will keep giving for many Christmas’ to come.  Check out the $5 Foreva Bulb as a low-cost and energy-saving present that fits nicely under the tree at home or at the office.  Then take a look at the rest of BrightWay’s high quality LED lighting offering for your commercial and residential needs.
