Does it make sense for me to use LEDs instead of traditional Christmas Lights?
LED technology is revolutionizing the lighting industry and we are focused on implementing these lights into the mainstream as much as possible. Our opinion is that companies should consider making the switch to LEDs, but it is important to understand whether or not it makes sense for your property.
- LED mini lights vs. the traditional mini lights. Hands down everyone should be using LEDs. You’ll save on your energy costs, the product will not fail on you like a traditional light and the colors are much clearer and brighter!!
- Perimeter lighting – Traditional C7s vs LED C7s – for most clients it’ll make sense to use LEDs vs. the traditional light. Because lights are often left on 24/7 during the holiday season you can really save on the energy expenses. It will also reduce the strain on your electrical panel, as well as free up power to allow you to enhance your display. The other great benefit is that you will be making a choice to keep your company Green, being socially responsible is important in today’s business world.
Commercial Clients should really consider an all LED option for their properties. Ultimately the choice is up to our clients and we work with you to decide what will make the most sense between LEDs and traditional lights.
