Holiday lights are no longer reserved for Christmas. Traditional holiday lights instantly put you in a festive, positive mood. What if you could enjoy that same joy all year long? With professional-looking, permanent holiday lighting, you can. Permanent lighting allows you to customize the exterior of your home, making it the most appealing on the street.

What is Permanent Holiday Lighting?

Permanent holiday lighting is the permanent installation of exterior lights. These Christmas lights are securely installed and encased in an aluminum track for long-term use. The permanent lights easily turn on and off using an app on a control that also connects to your Apple or Google smartphone.

While permanent holiday lighting is sometimes referred to as Christmas lights, they also serve other uses. These accent lights come in over 16 million colors, so you can use them to create a design that you love. Permanent holiday lighting can also be used as commercial lighting, adding security and decor to a business.

Are permanent lights more expensive than traditional Christmas lights?

Once you factor in installing and removing the lights every year, permanent lights may be more time and cost-effective.

Permanent lights also use LED bulbs, which are significantly more energy efficient than the boxed Christmas lights you find at the store. This means you also have to calculate the increased cost of energy bills during the holiday season when comparing the costs.
