Best Type of Lighting to Buy
When selecting lighting for your home or business there are a wide variety of stylized options to consider. To start, a bulb isn’t just a bulb when it comes to holiday lights. You can pick from traditional incandescent or the increasingly popular LED lights that display the same brightness at a fraction of the energy! LEDs are generally a safer option and many include extreme weatherproof lights that look like traditional incandescent, but prove much less risk of burning out or catching fire. Colors and shapes vary depending on brand and style, but with our help, we will find the right bulb for your safety and preferences.
When is it Okay to Hang your Lights?
Rule of thumb, the best time to hang your lights is relatively earlier in the season to beat the cold and allow you to enjoy them for a longer amount of time. However, there may be some who wish to install them at the last moment and there’s nothing wrong with that. Each person has their own preference when deciding to finally climb that ladder and hang the lights. Many people start their decorating projects very early for Halloween, and then change it up or add some more when Christmas rolls around.
If you are unsure of developing a smooth transition into your lighting project then give us a call for a second opinion. It’s very much up to individual preferences, but we say the earlier the better to safeguard from unpredictable weather changes and surprise cold snaps. Colder months tend to inhibit project effectiveness and overall convenience. Some people even keep certain lights up for the entire year! We offer services year-round which can install lighting for all holidays, weddings, or any other gatherings which require added lighting or decorative ambiance.
Safety Suggestions for Fire Prevention
Your safety is our priority. We will never sell you product we wouldn’t use in our own homes. Tested and certified, each bulb and strand have been checked and pre-approved for installation, guaranteeing you a safe holiday season and a restful night’s sleep.
When installing lighting yourself, there are a few rules to keep in mind. The first is a rule that is broken too often that can save you from a fire. Don’t leave your lights on while unattended! Your neighbors may not be able to enjoy them when you’re on vacation but it’s worth having the extra security. In the event of an accident, you need to be present to address a potential accident. LED lighting can aid in more secure lighting situations and can be more reliable in fire prevention.
Better Safe than Sorry
The second most important rule is to consider your extension cords. Sounds silly, right? Poor outlet planning and outdated deteriorating wires are some of the most common causes of house fires during the holidays. It would be in your best interest to really think ahead and be smart about how you implement electrical extension cords. Take a look at how they are expected to hold up to weather conditions, how long they reach, if they have a grounder, and their maximum plug capacity. This can make the difference between fire and no fire.
Searching through your old lights and throwing them out is wiser than trying to tenuously reuse them for years to save money. Outdated and faulty wires cause accidents. It would be more expensive to replace your home than a strand of lights. Using three light strands per outlet is also another of many helpful tips to keep you safe this holiday season, and when you consult with us we will inform you with other suggestions when setting up your DIY lighting projects!
