Holiday Lighting Displays

It’s that time of year again! As you struggle to hang your holiday lights, you hope that no one is taking pictures of you and uploading them onto the OSHA Fail site. As authorized, licensed holiday light installers, the team at Purple Care specializes in residential and commercial holiday light installations.

Below, we have provided some design tips and other things to consider to help ensure your holiday lights really stand out and separate you from the rest.

Selecting Lights That Make Your Home or Business Stand Out

Holiday decorating can be made easier by taking a few things into consideration before selecting your lights. You want to be sure to choose lights that will set your holiday lighting display apart from the rest.

  • Size: You can choose from a range of bulb styles, including novelty, dome, mini, C3, C5, C6, C7, and C8. Larger bulbs will help your display appear brighter, ensuring your home or business really stands out.
  • Color: When it comes to deciding on a color, people often choose from white, red, blue, or multi-colored light strings. White lights provide a bright and snowy look, red lights are festive, blue lights are icy and cool, and multi-colored lights are fun and warm. 
  • Brightness: Incandescent lights are typically brighter than LED, but LED light strings often have more lights per string. All things considered, they typically end up being pretty equal in overall brightness.
  • Power Savings: LED bulbs use about 10% of the energy that incandescent bulbs use. LED also generates much less heat than incandescent bulbs, significantly reducing the risk of fire.
  • Longevity: LED bulbs last up to 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs. They are less likely to burn out and also less likely to break, due to being made of lightweight plastic.
