Landscape lighting is rarely more fun than during the Holiday season. However, it can also be dangerous, especially if you leave it for last minute when ice, snow, and gusty winds create an unbearable atmosphere on the roof.

Due to the lighting decorations and heat, the Holiday season is known for high energy bills. Using LED lights and decorations instead of incandescent lights can save you up to 80% on lighting. They use less energy, are also safer, and are much less likely to blow a fuse or start a fire.
Although we strongly suggest you hire a professional, if you must go up on a ladder, use these tips:
It may seem obvious to not leave a plug near an area that may get wet. Many of us don’t think about it as the area may be dry right now. It is important to consider whether an area can get wet in the future and if so, to not use a plug there. Furthermore, cover all exposed plugs with electrical tape.
