Quick Tips For Hanging Holiday Lights


Outdoor holiday lighting brings holiday cheer to your home and neighborhood. Here are some quick tips for decorating your home.

• Plan before you start.

• Design your light display and decide which bushes, trees, roof-lines,etc. will have lights.

• Measure carefully to determine how many strands of lights you will need. (Note: for bushes and trees, a good rule of thumb is 100 lights for every 18 inches of green).

• Pull out all of your old lighting and make sure the lights and cords are in good shape.

• Determine how many additional strands you will need for the display. Make sure that everything you buy is rated for outdoor use.

• Gather all of the supplies needed for installation, including a ladder, extension cords, timers, etc.

• Work from the top to the bottom to hang the lights using clips (never nails!) to attach them.

• Remember - never connect more than 3 strands of lights together.

  • Install insulated storm windows to your existing window to reduce heat loss 25 to 50% (depending on the size and type). 
  • Install a window film to help reduce heat loss in the winter by sealing your windows.
  • During daylight hours in the winter, open all the drapes and blinds on south-facing windows to maximize the passive solar heat coming from the sun.
  • During the night, close all the window blinds and drapes to reduce heat loss through the windows.
  • Re-caulk around all windows to help seal your window frames and prevent air leakage.
Replacement Windows - Added efficiency will help you save on utilities.
  • Replace single-pane windows with double-pane or triple-pane windows for maximum efficiency.
  • Select windows that are gas filled (Argon, Krypton) and have low-emissivity (low-e) coatings.
  • Install insulating foam around replacement windows during installation.
