The following blog was taken from the website of our sister company, Christmas Ready, which can be found at .

It expounds a little further on lighting specifics.  We hope you enjoy!

When someone is looking to hire a Christmas light installer, generally they are trying to avoid the time spent on unpacking, installing, and packing up their Christmas lights.  Often, Christmas lights are tangled, broken, or otherwise in disrepair.  Getting up on high ladders to install Christmas lights along roof and gutter lines, especially if they are in very high peaks, can be frustrating an unnerving.

By in large, there are only a few types of Christmas lights that are installed on the exterior of homes and businesses.

The first type are incandescent lights that contain a filament:

  • C9 bulbs – These are large glass bulbs about 3 inches tall (typically used to outline rooflines)
  • C7 bulbs – These are slightly smaller glass bulbs about 2 ¼ inches tall (again used for rooflines)
  • Miniature lights (minis) – These are tiny lights that come in strands of 100 and 50.
  • Icicle Lights – These are miniature lights that hang down in strands of 5 to 7 bulbs per stand to simulate the appearance of icicle hanging from rooflines.
  • Net lights – These are miniature lights used to cover bushes in a uniform fashion.
  • Flood Lights – These are used to highlight Christmas decorations that have been installed such as nativity scenes and wreaths.

The second type of lights are LED’s.  These use remarkably less electricity than incandescent bulbs, but are more expensive.  LED’s are available in most any shape and size and mimic the traditional styling of incandescent bulbs.

All these lights are installed on houses using clips and when ran along roof and gutter lines.  Lights ran along sidewalks and driveways can be installed using light stakes.
