It can be tough to work up the energy to put up your LED Christmas lights that you got on sale last year, but trust us, it’ll be well worth it once they’re up! LED Christmas lights are incredibly beautiful, and they’re worth the hassle of getting on your roof because, after all, who doesn’t love a great Christmas light display? To make your display more beautiful than ever before however, it's important that you stay safe, organized and save some energy if you possible.
- Safety should always be your #1 priority! Did you know that many emergency rooms are filled with homeowners who lose the battle with their Christmas lights by either electric shock or falls off ladders? Don’t let that be you by never hanging lights by yourself. Always have a partner in crime holding your ladder steadily.
- Be sure you unpack your Christmas lights carefully. Bulbs can be sharp and if you are in a hurry, you are more likely to risk cutting yourself. So unpack your lights gingerly and look for lights that may need to be replaced on the way.
- Don’t be afraid to use extension cords, they’re your friends! It’s okay to splurge on heavy-duty extension cords that are listed for outdoor use. Keep in mind that you don’t want to overload your circuit either. Stick to only linking 5 strands of lights together before plugging the extension cord into the power.
