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

The holiday season is coming up, which means it’s time to start thinking about decor. The question is, are you going to be the one dedicating time and effort to hanging lights? Why not leave it to a pro? Here are just 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 come 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 are planning some house parties during the holidays, impress your guests with a unique light show. Even better, you can increase the curb 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 important it is to leave it to a professional. Not only do professionals take care of all the wires and cords, they also install the lights with the correct wattage in mind. They can help you prevent blown fuses and make sure that all your lights illuminate your home properly the second the sun goes down.

Something else to consider is that Christmas lighting designers use only the highest quality lights, 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 you 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 often work tirelessly to make sure you’re 100% satisfied with the outcome.

4. Reinvent the Design Every Year

If you choose to buy and install your own lights, you’ll be using those lights every year. This makes it harder to improve on the design, and if the lights break, you’re stuck buying new lights anyway. A lighting professional can make the design bigger and better every year and make sure you don’t have to worry about broken bulbs. Leaving it to the professionals can also give you an opportunity 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, once the season is over, they take care of takedown for you. This can actually save your trees, as leaving your lights on for too long can actually 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 next year.

8. Do Any Necessary Maintenance

Professionals make sure that 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 faulty bulbs for you. Some even offer maintenance services and will come out within 24 hours to fix the problem.

Christmas Lighting Designs

There are so many ways to light your home during the holiday season. But what will best reflect you and your family’s personality? We outlined a few popular designs below.

1. Colorful

Adding a bit of color to your home is easy with lights! Whether you’re adding one color every year, or using every color we have to offer, colored lights are a fun and festive way to ring in the new year.

2. Shining Star

If you’re looking for a simple yet dramatic option, this is a perfect solution. If you want to avoid lighting your entire roofline, try wrapping lights around one large tree! This creates one large and beautiful display. And don’t forget the star on top!

3. Unique

If you want to try something completely different, try some beautifully lit decorations to put on the exterior of your home. This creates a beautiful and unique holiday display that will definitely stand out!

4. Traditional

Keeping it traditional is a classic design choice for most of our customers. A nice warm white light along the roofline keeps your home lit in a clean and conservative fashion. Add in a wreath and a few large red bows and you’re probably not far from matching the timeless McAllister’s house from Home Alone.

5. Traditional Twist

Traditional lights can become boring to some year after year. These icicle lights are still traditional in color, but unique and beautiful in how they hang. Create your own winter wonderland by covering your entire home in them as seen below!

As always, adding greenery such as garland and wreaths can put the final touches on your home. Combining greenery with lighting creates a picture-perfect home for the holidays.

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 just save yourself the hassle?

Christmas lighting is meant to be installed for seasonal use only. They aren’t manufactured for long term application. (In fact, the warranty from the factory is a mere 90 days.) 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 what size they are. 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 who have come 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 that are never taken down.
  • Warm Weather: When you leave lights up during the summer months, the warm weather will damage them. Rain corrodes the ends, and sunlight makes the bulbs dimmer and the wire brittle.
  • Wind Storms: Mother Nature damages the lights as wind tends to stretch the cords as it’s blowing the branches back and forth.
  • Wildlife: For some reason, 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 from 2-3 years. Taking down your lights after each season will allow you to enjoy your lights year after year without having to purchase 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 you don’t have to worry about the price changing each year.

If you have questions about your current account with us or if you are looking for someone to install your Christmas lighting this year, contact us today! We provide Utah, California, and Florida with the very best holiday lighting displays around.
