LEDs Lighting the Holiday Season

     As we drift closer to the holiday season, more and more lights are springing up in our neighborhoods.  Instead of climbing into the attic for those energy-sucking incandescent lights, keep your December electric bill low with more efficient LED lights!  A little LED replacement can go a long way with household energy savings.  LED light strips can use up to 90% less electricity and last up to 10x longer than your incandescent holiday lights.  While the higher price tag may make LED’s seem less convenient, the saved money through energy savings and bulb replacement will help pay off the investment in only one or two holiday seasons.  LED strips are also available in parallel circuits, so when one LED goes out the strip is still functional.  Another, safer feature of LED strips is that they produce little heat, reducing fire risks.
