The Real Problem With ‘Hardware-Store’ String Lights
String lights are a beautiful and versatile way to liven up your home, but they can be time-consuming and
demanding to set up.
The ones usually available at hardware stores require long extension cords and dedicated outlets to set
up. Some may even need additional equipment like voltage regulators to safely run for hours.
Plus, extension cords are both unsightly and a tripping hazard. And since they need to be plugged in,
they suck up electricity— wasting energy and raising your power bills.
Why Most String Lights Won’t Beautify Your Home
The warm and inviting glow of string lights makes them a great choice for increasing the curb appeal of
your yard or garden.
But not all wired lights are designed to withstand outdoor use. With slight exposure to rain, snow, or
the sun’s UV rays, most string lights get damaged by condensation and rusting. No wonder most homeowners
just settle for a dim, boring yard.
Inside the home, regular string lights also compete for outlet slots. If you don’t have one solely for
their plug, you could end up wasting time planning or switching the connections.
Decorating with these lights always seems like more trouble than it’s worth… until now.
