Christmas Light Tip #64

Rated 4.8 Across 500+ Reviews



Here's a quick tip for your Christmas lights. When looking for a place to plug your lights in, take a look up under the eave. Most homes that have been built recently in Draper, I would say within the last ten years, maybe 15 years, a lot of the time the home builder is going to put outlets up under the eave.Now it's a really cool thing about these outlets. Most of the time, they're controlled by a light switch inside of your house. So you can flip these lights on from inside your home whenever you want. You don't have to worry about going out, plugging them in, you also don't have to worry about an ugly extension cord running up the side of your house.There are downsides, but they're not terrible. If you're using a timer, you need to be very careful 'cause when that light switch gets turned off, if your timer does not have a battery backup, it's gonna mess with your settings. So you want to make sure the light switch stays on all of the time. Also, if you're using a timer, you're not gonna have the flexibility. I know a lot of people love to turn their lights on and keep them on all day long during Christmas. You're not gonna be able to do that with this being on a light switch and a timer. But I think it's an awesome idea, awesome recommendation, it's so easy for you to turn those lights on and off from a light switch right inside your house.
