The ultimate in outdoor lighting, Festoon lights take the traditional style of hanging lights and gives you the ability to do them outside, easily and safely. By installing a solar light kit, these lights can be turned on at night and will stay lit up until morning, even on a rainy or snowy day! These lights come in many different styles and colours to suite your needs, no matter how big or small your garden or patio may be. A good quality Festoon lighting system will have many years of use left on it, so now is the time to upgrade and get a new one, as they come cheap now, because there has been such an increase in the number of people that install and use them, and also because they are really quite simple to install, so really anybody can do it.
How to Do Maintaining Your Festoon Lights
sure that your current Festoon lighting system is able to cope with future additions and changes to your light bulbs, all you need to do is buy a transformer, which plugs into a standard voltage socket and ensures that your light bulb continues to run at a constant standard voltage, so there is no risk of it suddenly going out. Most systems come with a six foot lead, but it is perfectly acceptable to have up to ten feet attached to it, just make sure that they are not too long as they can damage or bend the lead. Once you have installed your new light bulb(s), all that is left for you to do is to plug them into the regular electricity socket and you are done! You will need a 110V outlet for your light fixtures, but most standard voltage outlets will work just fine.
If you want your new festoon lighting system to look really good and last a really long time, then you should take care of it. If the wires become frayed and damaged, then you can replace them. As well as replacing the bulbs in your old systems, you should also clean and lubricate the contacts on the wires on a regular basis. If you don’t do this regularly then you could cause a short, so it’s worth doing. Once your lighting system is running smoothly and you keep using it and maintain the proper maintenance, then you will find that your investment in the lights pays for itself over time.
