Here at HolidayLEDs.com, we occasionally get questions from landscapers or other business owners interested in offering professional holiday LED lighting services to their customers. We turned to an expert in the field, Paul Anderson, to help answer them. He has spent the last 8 years honing installation techniques and training companies to do commercial holiday installations, from bidding to designing to installing to troubleshooting. At his latest on-site training, new contractors installed Halloween lighting at the Milwaukee Zoo.

Would your perfect Christmas tree be a tall and stately spruce? Or a full and wintry beauty that’s needs to be rescued? Or a tree with a good story?

Our Christmas light recycling program is now open for business! Our recycling program has been a great success due to the support of thousands of participants who send us their old Christmas lights each year. We are happy to be able to continue this program as a result of this overwhelming support.

Like many things in life, the ease with which you’re able to install holiday lights on your home boils down to two things: thinking the project through before you dive in and having the right tools for the job. Neither task is hard, but it can make a world of difference once you start. So here are five tips in each of those categories that will make installation go much smoother:

Right tools for the job

1. A ladder and bucket
2. Extension cords
3. A long (30 foot) measuring tape
4. LED light strings
5. Christmas light clips

Thinking things...

One of the major advantages of LED holiday lights, in addition to their added safety and longer life span, is the amount of energy they save. We’ve previously posted some detailed calculations to help you estimate how much money you’ll save on electric bills based on how many and what kind of LED bulbs you use.

If you ever found a metal slinky, Malibu Barbie, big wheel, Connect 4, Chatty Cathy or game of Operation under your Christmas tree or as a holiday gift, chances are that these commercials will take you right back there.

There are plenty of moments in horror movies when silence is the scariest sound of all. But when you’re decorating your yard for Halloween, LED light displays can be enhanced by adding music. Some folks go all out, as you can see from this incredible display in Riverside, CA:

We started selling LED Christmas lights shortly after the product was introduced to the consumer market. There have been many improvements since then in LED holiday lighting technology. The first generation of LED Christmas lights were bright and energy efficient but most were not rectified so the light produced flicker and created a strobing effect that was not attractive. In addition, the early sets of white LED Christmas lights could not produce a light that was comparable in color to traditional incandescent clear.

When decorating for Halloween, there are a wealth of options to make your yard the scariest on the block - from purple and orange lights that can cast a glow over the creepiest graveyard to pumpkin lights with a sparkling interior that flashes from green to orange.
