Tips for Choosing Your Holiday Lights This Year

There is more to choosing holiday lights than just bulbs on a string. Your home can get a completely different feel just by adding colorful lights to the exterior. Every type of light offers a different look and ambiance – but which one is right for your home?

Let us introduce you to some of our favorite, must-have holiday lightings:

Snowflake Lights

Snowflake lights are different from the typical holiday light. These offer a different feel from icicle lights and are a great way to change the outer appearance of your home. These lights are typically found in white and blue.

Icicle Lights

Common during the holiday season, icicle lights are found along the perimeter of your roof. These come in white, blue, or multicolored bulbs and hang six to nine inches below the roof edge. They add an extra layer of dimension to your home.

Bubble Lights

Making a comeback from the 1950s, bubble lights are glass bulbs containing different bubble-filled liquid colors. These lights come in multiple colors and provide a more nostalgic feel.

Fiber Optic Lights

Unique and colorful, fiber optic lights are more often found in fixtures versus on a lighted strand. The benefit of these lights is their versatility and multitude of color options.

LED Lights

LED lights are popular because of the energy efficiency they provide and also their vibrant colors. These can be found in solid colors or multicolored strands. If you want a brighter, more vivid lighting display, LED lights are where it is at.

Incandescent Lights

Incandescent lights are the most popular holiday light on the market. These are great for wrapping around trees, railings, and columns. These lights are also relatively inexpensive, which is great if you are shopping for lights on a budget.

EVSOL Energy Bulb Replacement

The majority of energy use for businesses and residential properties is because the wrong bulbs are being used. Over a third of a business’s energy costs can be reduced just by changing the type of light bulbs used in the fixtures.

Commercial ballasts are used with fluorescent lights to limit the current to the bulb, preventing them from increasing uncontrollably, overheating, and burning out. Unlike residential fluorescent bulbs, commercial ones create more heat and magnetic interference, so protecting them from becoming a fire hazard is essential.

The most common replacement bulbs found in commercial settings include:

  • Incandescent
  • Halogen
  • Fluorescent
  • HID/Metal Halide
  • LED

Reasons You May Need to Replace Your Lights

There are some key indicators that your lights need to be replaced, these are:

  • The lights dim or flicker
  • Lights don’t turn on or off when they should
  • Cracked or burnt out lights
  • Frequent lightbulb burnouts
  • Bulb explosion
  • Preference to change the ambiance to a softer, cooler feel
  • Excessive energy consumption
  • The level of illumination needed is not achieved

The Art of Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting is the most dramatic statement you can make with your home’s exterior and also one of the most cost-efficient changes you can make to change the overall look and feel of your home. EVSOL Energy knows how to change the look and feel of your home while remaining energy efficient at the same time.

Why Install Landscape Lighting?

Landscape lighting does more for your exterior than you realize. Adding the right kind of landscape lighting provides:

  • An ambiance that might not be offered by your outdoor landscape otherwise
  • Additional beauty
  • Security
  • Safety
  • Floodlights
  • Additional value – curb appeal

Construction & Operating Permits

As a business, we are well aware of how difficult and time intensive renovations can be. That's why we aim to make it easier by helping our clients secure any and all construction and operating permits with the Technical Safety Authority, and ensure that all construction is up to par with all BC Electrical code.

With our BC Field Safety Representative Class A & B License from Technical Safety BC, we can get access to Contractor Installation Permits to fast track any permit work so you can get your projects completed sooner.

Important Note
Within British Columbia, any grid-tied systems do require complex electrical connections to BC Hydro, and do need to be approved prior the installation to ensure a safe and effective operation. EVSOL Energy can help you with acquiring the proper permits for installation.
