If you’re considering hanging your own lights this year, don’t overlook the key benefits of having a holiday lighting professional lend a helping hand.

1. Reduce Your Risk of Injury

Injuries happen – a lot.

Annually, over 14,000 people are injured hanging holiday lights and decorations. In fact, between 2006 and 2017, more than 173,000 were hurt while decorating their homes for the holidays. A festive time can quickly turn into a visit to the emergency room.

2. Maximize Your Christmas Light Installation Potential

Christmas lighting possibilities are nearly endless, but you need to have the right lighting systems in place. When you work with professionals, they can offer low-voltage wire designs that make it simple and easy to power:

If you’re still plugging your lights into an external electrical outlet, a professional may provide a better solution that is more energy-efficient and offers more possibilities.

3. Professional Design

Unless you’re a professional designer, you likely hang your lights in the same place once a year and don’t give much thought to the design process. However, when you work with a professional lighting installer, you can leverage their expertise and experience so that you can:

When you want your home to stand out, working with a professional is one of the best choices that you can make.

4. Professionals Offer Maintenance Options

Any homeowner knows that hanging your lights isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning! All too often, a person will hang their lights, and in just a few days, a strip goes out, falls down, or needs some sort of attention.

Swapping bulbs or making repairs in hard to reach places is certainly no fun. Even worse are the times when you have to pull an entire section down to fix it, then make your way all the way back up the ladder and/or onto the roof just to reinstall!

If you work with a professional team of lighting experts, fixing a problem is as simple as picking up the phone to call your installer!

5. Leave Taking Down the Lights to Someone Else

Honestly, this might be the most underrated aspect of having a professional install holiday lighting for you!

It’s easy to get excited to install your Christmas lights at the beginning of the holiday season, but taking down your decorations is a completely different story.

No one ever has the motivation to drag their ladder out and start taking down their Christmas lights.

Instead, we wait for that magical January weekend when it’s warm and sunny … but it never comes. Then it’s February and it’s only gotten colder.

Before you know it, it’s June and your lights have been on the house for six months, so why take them down now?

When you work with a professional lighting installer, they will take down the lights for you, too!
