BLT Direct Prepares for the Festive Season with 2015 Christmas Lighting Range

BLT Direct has extended its range of products for Christmas. The new range features a number of energy efficient Christmas lights including Christmas solar light sets and coloured LED floodlights.

Using older lights through the festive period can have a huge impact on the environment and causes a substantial increase in greenhouse gas emissions, making now the perfect time to invest in brighter, more modern and more planet-friendly lighting. Research has found that a household with minimal festive decorations can use up to 635 watts across the season for example. However, heavy usage of Christmas lights with older incandescent bulbs can cause a massive increase of up to 6799 watts through December. LED Christmas lights use around 903 watts in comparison so make a smarter choice for those who want to celebrate without breaking the bank.

House Using LED Fairy Lights

BLT Direct’s Christmas range offers eco-friendly lighting for both commercial and residential use. The 2015 Christmas lights selection includes solar powered fairy lights, coloured golfball light bulbs, coloured GU10 Christmas light bulbs, outdoor icicle lights and Christmas novelty light bulbs.

Steven Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct said “Now that summer is winding down we’re delighted to launch our 2015 collection of Christmas lights. There are lots of new products and an extended selection for both indoor and outdoor decorations. While many households and businesses are now really keen to use energy saving bulbs during the rest of the year, this can get forgotten at Christmas as older lights are dug out from lofts, sheds and cupboards and re-used. It’s important to use energy saving lighting during the festive period to make sure savings made in the rest of the year are not lost in December.”

Switching to LED and solar powered lighting this Christmas isn’t the only way to reduce energy bills, other advice from BLT Direct is to keep your festive lights timed and limiting them to a few hours every night. Leaving Christmas lights on through the night is a huge waste of electricity and money.
