C7 LED Christmas Lights
Celebrate the Season
In recent years, late fall signals the time when many people dig out the traditional strands of holiday lights and consider the benefit of C7 LED Christmas lights.
The biggest differences between the 5-watt incandescent C7 light and the LED light are the brilliant radiance and cool-to-the-touch bulb provided by LED technology. Whether using the lights indoor or outdoor, the results will be more spectacular.
Holidays are more fun when special lighting brightens up the dark while adding cheer. Because C7 LED Christmas lights stay cool, they are excellent for decorating the Christmas tree, doorways and mirrors inside your home.
If you have a fireplace, use a strand of lights to decorate the mantle and set a lovely village scene to capture the glow. There are many colors available to complement the theme you want to create.
Walk outside to see all the areas that C7 or C9 Christmas lights can change from average to awesome. It is amazing to see how lovely balconies look with a strand or two of lights. The same holds true for porches and patios.
Are you proud of your garden area? Use UL rated outdoor lights for a nighttime outline of the lovely plants, statues and shrubs. It is important to place the wires safely so no one trips and pets cannot get tangled in the display. With that caution and abiding by electrical load guidelines, any homeowner will enjoy the beauty added by impressive lights.
More than Mini Lights
Businesses and people all over the world celebrate with LED mini lights, a quick and easy way to light up surroundings. C7 LED Christmas lights bring the glow and amazing color to traditional-sized bulbs at .6 watts per bulb, while C9 LED bulbs are listed at 1 watt. That lets the home and business owner make more connections, reducing the number of outlets needed to power the lights.
Think traditional Christmas lighting when envisioning C7 and C9 Christmas lights. Both are much larger and durable than mini lights and designed to remain lit even if other bulbs go out.
Favorite uses for the many different colors of outdoor string lights include outlining buildings to create a design at night or show off unique angles and features. Green wire blends in with darker color paint, wood and plants, while white wire goes well with light paint, wood, crystal and floral displays.
Need-to-Know C7 and C9 Information
Not all bulbs have the same level of brightness. With the exception of LED lights, wattage usually increases the bulb’s light. Both bulbs, generally dipped twice for color, sometimes receive three coats. The coating reduces the brilliance. Weather wears off the protective coating on the bulb, so second season lights often shine brighter that the new ones.
The bases used on C9 and C7 LED Christmas lights are different. The smallest base is the candelabra base, used by the C7 bulb. The C9, on the other hand, has a larger base known as an intermediate base. The bulbs are not interchangeable.
Strings of lights must be compatible, so do not mix C7 and C9 strings or different wattage within the same type of bulb. Follow guidelines for the maximum number of lights and strings that can be joined together and enjoy the beauty and joy colorful lights bring to your home.
