The holiday season is upon us, which means it’s time to get in the spirit of the holidays!
Hanging lights around the exterior of your home is a beautiful way to display your seasonal cheer, but it can also be a painstakingly frustrating process.
This year make Kansas City holiday light installation a breeze with these must-haves for hanging your holiday lights.
Add outdoor outlets to the exterior of your home for easier and safer holiday lighting displays. Outdoor electrical outlets are specifically designed to withstand the elements, and are typically a GFCI, or ground fault circuit interrupter. This safeguards you from shock or electrocution by tripping the circuit when it senses an electrical imbalance.
Sick of using extension cords hanging out a window or cracking through a door? Or what about the electrical demand of your holiday lights overloading your circuit breaker? Stop the madness at the source, and have a dedicated circuit installed specifically for your outdoor holiday (and non-holiday) lighting needs. A dedicated circuit means it’s an outlet that is directly wired to it’s own circuit breaker that’s intended for a single-use.
Use High Quality LED Lights for Your Roof Line
Assuming you have a professionally installed roof by a licensed and insured Kansas City roofing contractor, your roof should already be ready to safely install exterior holiday lighting along your roofline. Be sure to use low voltage, energy-sipping, high quality LED Christmas lights for a safe display with eye-popping colors.
A Switch Specifically for Outdoor lights
Another great idea for holiday lighting displays is installing a light switch that specifically connects to your holiday lighting display. Don’t worry about which other lights you have to use in order to turn on your holiday display. Make your life a whole lot easier by installing a dedicated light switch, and you’ll never have a Clark Griswold moment again! At least when it comes to your holiday lights.
