Festive Electrics – Setting Up Your Christmas Home
Christmas and the festive season are times when we often use electrical items as part of our decor. From twinkling fairy lights through to christmas trees and ornaments, many of the things we use need electicity to function. Ensure your home is well equipped for a fantastic festive season with safe electricals!
The first thing you think of when the words christmas and electric are used is fairy lights – if you are putting up lights outside, make sure you choose a set which are suitable for outdoor use! Indoor lights have different materials and wiring, so are not safe to use in the wind, rain or snow. Check that your cables are not at all damaged or frayed prior to using lights outside too.
Other items which may require electricity include festive inflatables which are growing in popularity – set out on a front garden, a blow up santa can look really fun especially for children! Bear in mind that the power supply for such inflatables can be quite noisy, so you might want to switch these off at night time to avoid irritating your neighbours.
