What are incandescent Christmas lights?
Just so, what's the difference between incandescent and LED Christmas lights?
In fact, LED bulbs use about 90% less energy than their incandescent counterparts, which adds up to significant savings for you over time. Incandescent bulbs function by creating heat which in turn causes the inner filament to glow, whereas LED lights have inner conductors that create light without heat.
One may also ask, can you mix LED and incandescent Christmas lights? So, in this instance, the answer is “Yes, you can mix the bulb styles”. In parallel wired C7 and C9 stringers, you can mix incandescent and LED bulbs to your heart's content… beyond the electrical specifications, taste and Christmas light decorum are your biggest considerations when mixing bulb colors and styles.
One may also ask, are incandescent Christmas lights safe?
If a few bulbs are out and you have the original spares, it's safe to replace them. Properly working incandescent string lights will feel warm, which is fine for your tree. But don't link too many strings together because this can cause a power overload.
How long do incandescent Christmas lights last?
about 4-6 years
