With all of the lights that are ready to be put up, the next question is; What about the power supply? Well, in this blog you will read and see how running power supply works for your LED Christmas Lights!
Running for LED Christmas Lights can be a challenge at times. In this blog and the video above you will learn the proper way to run power for LED lights.
As you can see below, here we are going to use a GFI protector. If there is too much power connected, the GFI will help not blow a breaker and having to call a costumer.
After the GFI is ready to go, the next step is to connect a photo sensing cell. This product below will dictate when the electricity comes on. Below you will see the cell that we use for installing LED Christmas Lights.
After both of these useful products are in place, it is not time to connect the extension chord.
As you start unwinding the wire and laying it out make sure to keep out of the main walkways. This can become very dangerous when installing Christmas Lights. Below you will see images of how to properly install the chords with avoiding the walkways.
This is how they are going to look when they are all done. Also, another tip when connecting power to a house is to use the least amount of chords as possible. Chords can become quote expensive. The less money you spend, the more you save! That is a good thing right??
When all the chords are hooked up to power, you can now begin the installing of the LED Christmas Lights!
Below, you will see the three way splitter cord that is used. This way, you can go in all directions for bushes or trees.
Now that you know how running power works for installing lights, let the fun can begin!
