Easy and Inexpensive Holiday Lighting

When it comes to lighting up your home for the holidays, you may be wondering what type of lighting is best, maybe even easiest.  With so many different types and configurations at the stores, it can be hard to decide.  If your neighborhood is like mine, there can be even a little competitiveness involved.  However, you may be the type of person that does not want to commit too much time and energy into putting up the lights, so with that in mind, let’s look at a list of lights that could save you time, energy and maybe even some money.

Net style lights.  These lights are just what they sound like.  They are lights configured into the shape of a net.  The ones I have found are usually 4′ x 6′ and all you have to do is drape the net over your bushes in front and plug it in to your outdoor outlet. Easy and simple! If you buy several, you have a wonderfully lighted yard with minimal effort!

Projector lights.  Likely the easiest lighting option available is the projector light.  Simply find a good spot in your front yard to position the projector which will then display the lights on the side of your house!  The result is very festive and effortless!

Colored lightbulbs.  Another extremely easy and simple option for holiday lighting is exchanging white light bulbs in your porch and yard lights for colored ones.  Colored bulbs are available at your local hardware or department store, maybe even the dollar store near you.  They are quick and easy to switch out and the result is pretty but not overdone.

Hire it out.  If you are one of those people who really enjoys the festivity of a house covered with holiday lights but you have neither the time nor energy to do it yourself, then consider hiring out the task to someone else.  Yes!  There are people who will put your holiday lights up on your house for a price.  For some people, this option is definitely worth the little bit of extra money.  Additionally, it’s a great way to make your neighbors jealous!

Whether you’re taking the easy way our or hiring someone to do it for you, putting up those holiday lights can really brighten up your life and your neighborhood and you may find that it is worth the effort.

Of course, when it comes to holiday lighting or any other type of lighting or electrical issue, when you need the best advice and service, call Peter Needham Electrical and HVAC.  Peter is available 24/7!
