LED lighting has become all the rage these days. LEDs have several advantages over incandescent lights. Most LED’s are rated for 60,000 hours of usage, enough to last many years. This is a stark contrast to popular white mini lights, which only last about 3,000 hours. One of the greatest benefits of LEDs is that they use 92 percent less electricity than regular lights. This results in great savings, especially when you consider the durability of these lights. The only drawback of LED lighting is that it is more expensive up front. However, if you factor in the savings on electricity and the longer lifespan of the lights, LEDs make the most economic sense.
When considering the use of LEDs, you should take into account many factors:
- Can you leave the lights on the trees year round?
- How old are the trees?
- Are the lights protected from passersby and traffic?
- What is your budget?
If you would like assistance in deciding between LEDs and incandescents, don’t be afraid to contact Evergreen Environments. We would be happy to sit down and discuss which option will work best for your vision and budget.
How many lights can you use?
This is often the deciding factor in a holiday lighting project. Lights need power. For white incandescent bulbs, you can generally install 55-60 sets per 20 amp circuit (assuming the circuit is dedicated to the lights only). For larger bulbs, you are limited to a couple hundred bulbs per 20 amp circuit.
Of course, with LED lights and their lower power requirements, those limits go out the window. You can get most jobs done with a circuit or two.
