Let’s say you’ve already decided on a pre-lit Christmas tree as the centerpiece of your holiday décor. You probably chose this type of tree because it is a way to have a beautiful and festive Christmas tree without some of the hassle that a traditional cut tree entails. In this article, I’d like to suggest that you take simplicity a step further and go for a pre-lit Christmas tree with LED lighting.
If you think your lighting choice doesn’t make a difference, let me remind you of an all too common flaw in normal incandescent Christmas lights. Do you know what happens when a light fails? All the lights on the strand go out. At that point, it is up to you to review and test each bulb until you find the one that went wrong.
This is one area where the LED has the advantage. A blackout of a light bulb does not ruin everything and causes the whole tree to go dark. There are several other benefits that LED Christmas lights have over older standard incandescent lights:
They use less LED Christmas Lights energy. Some LED trees are so energy efficient that you can run them on batteries. They don’t work as hot as incandescent bulbs and that makes them less dangerous. They have a longer lifespan and can last more than 25,000 hours. One downside to LED Christmas lights is the cost that tends to be higher than standard ones. However, if you think long term, this option will most likely save you money over time. The longevity and energy efficiency of these bulbs will pay off your initial investment.
I just gave you a few reasons why choosing an LED pre-lit Christmas tree can be a time- and money-saving move this holiday season. If you decide to purchase such an item, you will have a hassle-free tree decorating solution that should last for many years.
