Christmas Lighting: Energy-Saving with Led and Timer

Just in time for the first Advent, I get boxes from the closet, grab smokers, arc-shaped arches and pyramids.My children insist.The Herrnhuter star at the entrance to the house can not be missed either.I insist.Just before Christmas comes a stately Christmas tree with a string of lights.Then the whole family is happy.

Just as we make it to most people in the (pre) Christmas time cozy. But the additional lighting needs electricity. What are the possibilities for the light-luster not to unnecessarily burden the purse? To match the contest, we raffle five energy-saving light chains.

LED light as an alternative to the conventional light chain

Instead of the conventional lighting chain, an LED light chain or a light hose can be considered. Here at Allpubliclibraries you can get more different models of lighting. It lights up for six weeks for around 2.50 euros.That is after all only one sixth of what a string of lights with 10 lamps à 25 watts of electricity costs “devours”, namely up to 15 euro.

The manufacturers give a lifetime of up to 20,000 hours for LEDs.This means they last 20 times longer than regular incandescent lamps and the higher purchase price pays off.Also from the aspect of safety, LEDs are recommended.For they hardly heat up, and therefore lessen the danger of burning their fingers.

However: LEDs are very bright. Just in the Christmas period, where it should be cozy and romantic, this is a minus point in my view.And: a Christmas tree in the “hose dress”, is perhaps contemporary, but optically for me not exactly first choice.With a light hose, I can not therefore befriend, then would be more of a LED-Lichterkette question.Perhaps there are small attachments.Not only does it look more handsome, it also provides a more subdued light.

LED Christmas candles come out without cables

In addition to string lights, there are now cordless LED Christmas candles.Each is equipped with a battery or a battery, they are placed on the branches without cable and switched on and off by remote control.That sounds good!

But the fact is, the fact that every single candle needs its own battery or a battery.With a set of 20, therefore, as many of these small energy sources are used.I can save electricity;but when it comes to the disposal later?Environmentally friendly looks different …

With solar energy still more energy efficient for outdoors

LED light chains or tubes are also suitable for use in the winter garden.They keep temperatures down to minus 20 degrees Celsius.For the outdoors, the trade offers solar-powered LED light chains.The solar cells collect energy during the day and light up when it gets dark.This sounds like a reasonable combination.

Time switches save additional energy

To make sure the lights do not burn all night, it makes sense to control the lighting by means of time switches.At home, such a useful helper ensures that the light in Schwibbogen and Herrnhutterstern automatically turns on and off as it fits into our daily routine.This also helps save.

Back to the good old candle?

Despite all the technical refinements: candles warm, cozy, warm, especially during the dark seasons.We now leave the dining table lamp in the evening and sit together by candlelight.

When I think of my grandmother’s Christmas tree, I feel warm about my heart.She still used the good old candles.How beautiful it looked when the living room shone in the glow!Maybe we will do the same this year?And the money saved we invest in a new large pack of candles!

How do you keep it with the Christmas lights?Do you swear on candles or do you already use the latest LED technology?Share with me!

As a thank you we will raffle among all, which until 12.12. with five light chains from Hellum with 80 LED lights.It is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

PS:The Stiftung Warentest has examined light chains.Unfortunately, last time in 2007. A more recent version I have at least not found.But perhaps you?
