8 Reasons You Should Hire a Professional to Install Your Holiday Decorations

The holiday season is coming, so it’s time to start thinking about décor. The question is, will you be the one dedicating time and effort to hanging lights? Why not leave it to a pro? Here are a few reasons why hiring a professional to install your Christmas decorations is a good idea.

1. Make Your Home the Envy of the Neighborhood

Are you looking for a stunning display that makes people want to visit? Rely on holiday lighting professionals to make your property the envy of your neighborhood. A professionally designed lighting display on your home can add to the holiday spirit, making your house fun to return to during the Christmas season.

Bring Christmas Home

If you plan some house parties during the holidays, impress your guests with a unique light show. Even better, you can increase your home’s curb appealcurb appeal of your home with beautiful lights that can make your home look even more valuable during the holidays.

2. Get Higher Quality Lights and Installation

Big displays take a lot of work. The more extravagant the display, the more critical it is to leave it to a professional. Professionals take care of all the wires and cords and install the lights with the correct wattage in mind. They can help you prevent blown fuses and ensure that all your lights illuminate your home correctly the second the sun goes down.

Something else to consider is that Christmas lighting designers use only the highest quality, often commercial-grade LED lights. LED lights use 75% less energy than incandescent lighting, saving energy and even money on energy bills during the holiday season. They also last much longer than other types of lights so you can leave your lights on all season long!

3. Receive a Custom Design

Every home is different. Lighting professionals work with you to create a design that matches your and your home’s style. Whether you’re looking for a modern, sleek design or a more classic holiday feel, the right lighting designer can do it all. Many designers work tirelessly to ensure you’re 100% satisfied with the outcome.

4. Reinvent the Design Every Year

If you choose to buy and install your lights, you’ll be using those lights every year. This makes it harder to improve the design, and if the lights break, you’re stuck buying new lights anyway. A lighting professional can make the design more prominent and better every year and ensure you don’t have to worry about broken bulbs. Leaving it to the professionals can also allow you to mix up the design, so your lighting display never feels old or outdated.

5. Stay Safe and Insured

Believe it or not, it’s safer on your budget to rely on a professional lighting company to take care of your Christmas lights. Hiring a friend or neighbor nearby, while they can take care of the lights for you, don’t have the insurance and coverage necessary in case something goes wrong.

6. Make Decorating Convenient

A professional lighting company makes installation easy! No more spending hours on the roof of your home hooking light after light on your roof. No more detangling strands of lights for hours to find the one faulty bulb in your large string of lights. Even better, they take care of takedown for you once the season is over. This can save your trees, as leaving your lights on for too long can damage your plants.

7. Take Care of Storage For You

Once it’s time for the lights to come down, professionals can store all the bulky Christmas decorations for you to free up space in your garage and shed. Plus, the lights are stored in optimal conditions, so you don’t have to worry about broken or tangled strands of lights the following year.

8. Do Any Necessary Maintenance

Professionals ensure your lights are working like they should all season long. If you find a faulty bulb or the lights burn out, you don’t have to worry! Your lighting professional should take care of any defective bulbs for you. Some even offer maintenance services and will come out within 24 hours to fix the problem.

“Around the holidays, the Tree of Life in Draper City Park is illuminated with over 1,000 strands of lights is spectacular.”

Draper Tree of Life by Brite Nites

“I enjoy Draper Park at any time of year. It is big, with fun bridges, basketball courts, playground, and it connects with a fantastic trail that I’ve run on for many miles. However, the crowning jewel of this part of the “Tree of Life” is around Christmas. The City of Draper covers every branch of this tree with lights, which is breathtaking. Truly worth the trip to check out this tree. They also put up other lights around the park and have a hill that kids can sled on if there’s snow. Great family activity or perfect for a romantic stroll. Anyone can enjoy this Christmas highlight.”

Why You Should Remove Your Holiday Lights Yearly

Having to sort out your holiday lighting year after year can become a tiring and tedious job. Why not leave your lights up year-round and save yourself the hassle?

Christmas lighting is meant to be installed for seasonal use only. They aren’t manufactured for long-term application. At Brite Nites, we strongly recommend that you remove your lighting after each holiday season to help preserve the life of your purchase.

  • Tree Growth: Trees will continue to grow no matter their size. When a wire is wrapped around the branches or trunk, the tree can become damaged as the cords will suffocate the tree. We’ve even seen some extreme examples of clients from other companies who have left their lights up, and the tree grows around the lights or cuts the trees in half! We have also seen trees that suffer scarring from lights never taken down.
  • Warm Weather: When you leave lights up during summer, the warm weather will damage them. Rain erodes the ends, and sunlight can make the bulbs dimmer and the wire brittle.
  • Wind Storms: Mother Nature damages the lights as the wind stretches the cords and blows the branches back and forth.
  • Wildlife: Curious animals love to chew on anything they can get their paws on. Bulbs, wire, etc.

One holiday season typically lasts 90 days, and our LED lights last 4-5 seasons. Taking down your lights after each season will allow you to enjoy your lights year after year without purchasing all new ones the following holiday.

Rather than purchasing lights each year, make sure that you are on our new plan where you don’t own the individual strands, but rather, you pay for the service yearly, and the lights are included with the package each year. This way, you pay one fee and don’t have to worry about the price changing each year.

Suppose you have questions about your current account with us or are looking for someone to install your Christmas lighting this year, contact us today! We provide Utah, California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Washington, Arizona, and Florida with the best residential and commercial holiday lighting services!
