Charlotte holiday lighting company Irrigation & Lighting Specialist, we enjoy the time with our family and friends, the good food, and, most of all, the beautiful decorations! The problem is that enjoying holiday decorations and installing holiday decorations are two very different things.
As anyone who has ever attempted to put up holiday lights can attest, it's not an easy job. Once you have moved all of your lights out of the attic, untangled the strings, and checked for burned out bulbs, you usually don't feel like doing much else. In addition to this, it's not uncommon for Charlotte homeowners to begin hanging their lights and realize that they do not have enough lights or that an extension cord doesn't reach the power outlet.
"Most people never consider the amount of work that goes into holiday decorations, especially holiday lighting," says John Minor of Irrigation & Lighting Specialist. "For every beautiful holiday lighting display, there are hours of work that went into creating that spectacle."
Here's a few tips from Charlotte holiday lighting services company Irrigation & Lighting Specialist that should make creating your display a little easier this year.
Create a Budget
It's also important to take into consideration that this is the holiday season, where gifts are being exchanged. If you max out your credit cards before you've bought the first present, it's going to be a long holiday season for you.
An additional tip is to plan in advance to save money. By purchasing your holiday lights in January, for example, you can save up to 50%.
Plan Your Design
Once you've created your budget, you can begin to plan what your display will actually look like. This is where your personal creativity really comes into play. From roof displays to nativity scenes, the possibilities are only limited by your budget and imagination.
It is important to measure your home's windows when you are planning your design. By taking these measurements, you will be able to determine the amount of light strings needed. It is also important to determine where the power sources are around your home and plan accordingly.
Choose LED Lights Over Traditional Lights
LED holiday lights look the same as traditional holiday lights but use 84% less electricity. LED holiday lights are also safer because they generate less heat and are less likely to start a fire. Further, these lights last much longer than traditional lights because they are much less fragile and do not burn out for several years.
