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.
