Holiday Lighting Installation > Friendly, Quick, & Quality Service!
If you love the holidays, then you probably consider holiday lighting installation to be one of the most exciting aspects of the season.
Putting up Christmas lights is a popular tradition that makes the holidays feel more special and magical, while also making homes and businesses look more festive and beautiful.
While it's common for most people to install their holiday lights around Thanksgiving, some homeowners plan their holiday lighting installation year-round! These homeowners constantly strive to outdo their neighbors (and themselves) year after year, adding more lights and bigger decorations.
The problem, however, is that many of these installations are VERY dangerous fire hazards – and the homeowners don't even realize it.
Let's take a look at why – and what you can do to ensure your home or business is safe.
Dangers of Amateur Holiday Lighting Installation
Most homeowners who love putting up holiday lights, and have been doing it for years, don't consider themselves “amateurs.”
But the simple fact is: if you aren't a certified electrician, then you probably don't have the skills and know-how to do your holiday lighting installation properly. Far too often, ambitious homeowners make dangerous mistakes that put their houses at risk of an electrical fire and other consequences.
Have you ever done this?
- Connected several strands of Christmas lights to each other without reading the labels? Most traditional boxes of lighting strands should only be connected to 2 or 3 other strands, depending on the max wattage. When you exceed the wattage, you run the risk of starting a fire. The same goes for all the additional electrical decorations people connect to the same cords, such as inflatable snowmen, dancing gingerbread men and others.
- Used the same old extension cords, year after year? If you're using an extension cord from more than a decade ago, there's a chance it's not made to withstand the high wattage of today's ambitious holiday lighting installations. Not only that, if the cord is old, there's a greater chance that it's cracked, damaged and on the verge of failure (or worse).
- Placed indoor lights & extension cords outside? There's a reason why the boxes are labeled “indoor” or “outdoor.” Most indoor holiday lights, as well as ordinary extension cords, are not meant to be left out in the rain, cold and snow. If you're not using the right supplies, you're asking for trouble.
- Nearly fallen off a ladder or your roof? Most people admit it's happened at least once: that moment when you slip, trip or fall on your roof and you realize it could have been a lot worse. The risk of injury is another serious concern for those who attempt to do holiday lighting installation themselves.
All of these mistakes can be easily avoided by simply hiring a professional to install your Christmas lights for you!
With the help of a skilled electrical contractor, you'll be able to produce an even more beautiful lighting display that you know is 100% safe.
