There are various different types of Christmas lights, including There are colorful lights, both flashing and non-flashing, string lights, rope lights, net lights, and bulbs. At Dekra-Lite, we receive a lot of questions about our CFLs, incandescent, and LED bulbs. In this article, we are going to differentiate them from each other.

Price-When comparing the different options, the first thing you may notice is the price difference. LED bulbs are far more expensive than typical incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs were one of the first types of lighting created to replace incandescent lighting. Because they use less energy, they save money and are becoming more popular. As they gain popularity, their price should drop.

Directional– LED lights tend to be directional, meaning they are great if they are going to be stationary or pointing in one direction.

Brightness– LED lights are typically brighter than incandescent lights, but they don’t bring as much light into the room. Incandescent lights and CLFs, on the other hand, can brighten an entire room. They are ideal for larger areas that need to be lit up.

Temperature– LED light cool much quicker after they are turned off than other types of light. This can be beneficial when hanging holiday lights. Commercially, LEDs are not as widely available as incandescent and CFL lighting and you tend to have more options looking at the ‘old fashioned’ lighting that is available, although their expected lifespan is close to three times longer than any other type of lighting.
