If you’re a candle lover, you might tire of having to follow all the necessary safety rules each time you want to burn your favorite candle. Flameless candles solve this problem while adding just as much beauty and elegance to your home. They look real, but do not impose the hazards of real burning candles.
When burning real candles, you must be careful not to place the candle on certain types of surfaces, particularly wood or cloth. Also, the candle should not be left unattended in a room for very long. Real candles can be dangerous around small children and pets, and they can catch fire if the wax and wick are not cared for properly. Also with real candles, you must be concerned with air drafts from windows and doors, or from your home’s heating/air system. With flameless LED candles, you can enjoy the beauty of candles without all these worries.
What are Flameless Candles?
Flameless candles are candles that are battery-operated and created with special electronic features that give the appearance of a real flickering flame. Special LED bulbs are used to create the look and feel of a real burning wax candle. Though there are many types and styles of flameless candles, probably the most sought after are those with a sealed wax top and a realistic blackened wick, as those patented by a company named Candle Impressions using its exclusive Smart Chamber design. These use fine wax and fragrances to achieve the same effects of real scented candles.
Flameless Candles and Safety
With flameless candles, safety issues are non-existent because there is no real fire, no wiring, and no melting hot wax. Many apartment buildings, business offices, and rental homes have strict rules about burning candles due to fire code regulations. Flameless candles provide a wonderful alternative to real candles without being a potential fire hazard and/or violating the fire codes where you live or work.
Decor Uses for Flameless Candles
Flameless candles often decorate homes for the holidays or during any season – spring, summer, fall, or winter. There are many styles of battery-operated candles with holiday themes, seasonal themes, colors, and fragrances. Flameless candles can be used to decorate for parties, weddings, or other special events. They also make fabulous gifts for birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and other occasions.
The candles are available in many shapes and sizes such as round, swirl, heart, and carved designs. They can come with their own wall sconces or outdoor fixtures with no worry of the wind blowing out the candlelight. Using flameless candles in wall sconces or for outdoor lighting eliminates the need for wiring as well.
Battery-operated candles come in various pillar styles such as round (short and tall) or square. There are even fun flameless candles for kids, which make terrific night-lights!
