How do you make outdoor Christmas lights safe?


Dylan Thornfield, Specialist in Outdoor Lighting

To ensure the safety of your outdoor Christmas lights, follow these steps. First, always use lights that are rated for outdoor use. Check the packaging to confirm this. Second, inspect the lights for any damage before installation. Damaged cords or bulbs can pose a risk. Third, use a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet to plug in your lights. This type of outlet will shut off the circuit if there’s an imbalance, preventing potential shocks. Lastly, secure your lights properly to avoid any physical damage. Don’t use metal nails or tacks as they can pierce the wire and cause a short circuit. Instead, use insulated holders or clips.

If you encounter any issues or need professional help, our outdoor lighting repair specialists at Electricians Service Team are always ready to assist. We are experts in all aspects of electrical services, ensuring your holiday lights are both beautiful and safe.
