I just joined up and have found this site to be pretty helpful. Here is a little backround on my company. I have been installing Landscape Lighting and Irrigation in Nashville TN since 1998. We have a customer list of around 2000 residentials and commercials. Here is where I need your help, I had a couple builders, HOA's and residentials ask us to do some Christmas lighting and in the past we wanted no part of it since we always ran hard until Christmas doing blow-outs. With the economy and some interest from Clients, we sent out a mass email for Christmas lighting and we have gotten a huge response. We have done 10 installations already and I don't have time to do all the estimates. We have the man power, but since we are new to the Christmas lights, I have some questions for you guys. My basic take on everything is most of you are using incondescant C-9's for the fascia's and ridge lines. You offer the LED's, but not too many takers yet? So far, the only way to do the custom work has been the C-9 incans since it can be spliced, dead ended etc. What are you guys doing when you to use multiple outlets? X10? or do you just use timers and trying and sync them as best you can? Is it something you worry about? Are you installing plugs into flood light sockets? I am just trying to get an idea of how you guys are designing the system from a power stand point. Do you try and have all the roof on certain outlets, do you try and do windows with windows, shrubs with shrubs etc? My guys are great electricians, we just don't know if we are over thinking some of this since it is seasonal and temprorary? Any help is very appreciated. Thank you in advance for your suggestions!!
