Retrofitting or Updating Fixtures
Nowadays, smart outlets and other technology can help make your Christmas light display more user-friendly! Usually, easy to follow instructions provide a quick way to help with timers and convenient automation features. Instruction books also help provide feedback on energy usage or when to replace an item. LED technology provides cool new ways to fabricate effects such as firelight or gaslight. Companies can save thousands of dollars in the long run by choosing to upgrade existing systems.
Voltage Really IS Important to Consider
Often, residential owners choose the most inexpensive ways to light their trees, wreaths and Christmas decorations. However, sometimes this can backfire dangerously. By choosing an extension cord that is able to handle the voltage, this will prevent having to replace items or keep hazards from taking center stage when the family is the focus of the season.
Be careful and safe but have a Merry, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it’s going to be 2018 folks!
