Have you heard the wonders about flameless candles? While the term may sound like the punch line to a joke, there are serious benefits to using flameless or battery operated candles that mimic the effect of traditional candles.
Safer For Decorating
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, 42 home fires started from candles are reported each day in the United States. During the month of December, the percentage of home candle fires that start from decorations rises from 4 percent to 13 percent. You can prevent your home from being included in statistics such as these by incorporating flameless candles into your everyday and holiday decorations instead. You won’t have to worry about other materials in the decorations becoming too hot and catching fire. Nor will you have to worry about the decoration being placed too close to a wall, curtains or something else combustible and starting a fire.
Battery operated candles are also ideal for indoor use because there is no melted wax. You can still set the mood in your dining room, bathroom or bedroom without the messy wax. The fact that there is no hot wax also contributes to the safety benefit, as young children or pets won’t get burned by the wax if they accidentally bump the candle holder.
With battery operated candles, you won’t have to worry about trimming the wick or relighting it. Simply turn it on once and it will stay on even if the airflow in your home is disturbed by a frequently opening door or an overhead fan.
Flameless candles also have a number of features that give you more control. For instance, one of the reasons that people enjoy burning candles is the scent that they give off. Certain types of flameless candles are scented as well, but they offer more control. If you find that the scent is too intense, you can adjust the scent level to a more subtle level. Timers are another popular feature. Flameless candles with timer can be programmed to go on at the same time each day. Whether you are lining your driveway with Christmas luminaries or you are planning to surprise your sweetheart with a romantic interlude, timers are a convenient feature to have.
Nothing is more versatile than battery operated candles. They can be used as decorations to add ambience to any room of the house or can be used for emergency preparedness in case of a power outage. They can easily be moved from one place to another, indoors or outdoors, without the fear of starting a fire. There are a wide variety of candle holders to suit any sense of style—from recycled glass to vintage designs. They are available in sizes and styles including:
Small tea lights
Thick pillar candles
Slender tapered candles
Color changing LED lighted candles
What’s more, battery operated candles are made to flicker and glow to mimic the look of a traditional candle. Some styles are even coated with a thin layer of paraffin wax on the outside for a more realistic appearance. Chances are no one will notice it doesn’t actually have a flame without inspecting the candle very closely.
