As we are in the midst of the holiday season, people are busy getting ready and many are getting into the decorating. With the impressive light shows, the electrical needs are in high demand with lights and mechanical décor. You can get better equipped for the upcoming entertainment and competition with the surrounding neighbors by preparing their electrical system for the overload homeowners. Today, we at Burley Electric Services would like to offer some tips on how you can enhance your electrical system to handle your holiday electrical needs.
Dedicated Circuit for Christmas Lights
In separate ways, having an open window or stringing extension cords are both unsafe. The power demand can cause an overload to the circuit, which increases the hazards with the extra lighting. In addition to nonholiday lighting, install a dedicated circuit for your holiday lights to make it safer and more convenient. You can save time, effort, and enhance the safety with the exclusive circuit dedicated to the outdoor lighting. The outdoor display needs a dedicated light switch installation. Installing a light switch that runs only to the outdoor light display, an ideal solution for your convenience, safety, and efficiency. To significantly simplify, the process to flip the light off and on is tremendously expedited.
DIY VS Professional Electrical Work
Attempting any electrical installations or upgrades without proper training and experience is extremely dangerous, though many people enjoy creating the impressive displays, it is crucial that you do not attempt any electrical installations or upgrades. To enhance your electrical capabilities in time for the holidays and keep you and everyone around you safe be sure to contact a professional to avoid property damage and more importantly.
Add Extra Outdoor Outlets
Adding multiple outdoor outlets is ideal for easier and safer holiday lighting displays, no matter if you engage in the holiday season outdoor light displays or want to get festive year-round. To withstand the elements and are equipped with a GFCI, or ground fault circuit interrupter, outdoor outlets are specifically designed. When it senses an electrical imbalance, everyone is safeguarded from potential shock or electrocution because the circuit will immediately trip
Efficiency & Safety Electrical Recommendations
1) To prevent anyone from tripping and injury, be certain to secure any extension cords you choose to use to the surfaces.
2) Instead of nailing or stapling the cord to the surface, use plastic clips to secure the lights.
3) Make certain to use a sturdy ladder when hanging high lights.
