Professional Quality Solar Christmas Lighting

Christmas is a wonderful time, especially if you maintain a safe environment. One of the major hazards during Christmas time is installing a Christmas light unit in the front of your house. This is dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken, or you are careless with the materials that you use. There are several FAQ's about Christmas light safety that require attention before engaging in the process.

What types of Christmas lights should you purchase?

The best types of Christmas lights are those that come with low heat bulbs and are spaced apart from each other. High heat bulbs not only overheat and burn out your system, but they also cause a fire if the area surrounding it is too dry. Use a timer with these lights to lock the amount of time that the lights stay lit; this reduces the amount of time you need to supervise the lights. Finally, read the instructions that come with the lights that you purchase. Also, be aware of the life-cycle for the bulb so they do not burn out before the end of the holidays.

What layout should I choose with Christmas lights?

Be as creative as you want with the design and structural aspects of your presentation, but do not leave loose materials around your lights; a fire is likely if the material is too close to a hot light. Additionally, if you are choosing to put your lights outdoors, make sure that the bulbs are safe for that environment; view this on the back of the packaging upon your purchase.
