LED Christmas Lighting vs Incandescent Christmas Lights
Incandescent Christmas Lights
There are two basic types of lighting. The first type of Christmas Light is conventional incandescent string lighting. Incandescent lighting uses a filament and glass bulbs. Incandescent lights can generate large amounts of heat which have been known to start fires when the glass bulb is broken. If installed correctly incandescent lighting can be safe. Another consideration about incandescent lighting is that it uses a good amount of energy and only a limited amount of strings can be connected together, thus, requiring more receptacles and circuits.
LED Christmas Lights

In addition LED lights are very durable, use very low amounts of electricity, and they also have a long life expectancy.
