City of Bellaire Holiday in the Park

Lighting the Tree

Ohms Electrical Services was proud to be the Electrical Supervision for the City of Bellaire’s Holiday in the Park.

The spectacular event is a holiday tradition of music, Santa, and family fun. A towering Holiday Tree, glowing with lights, shimmering ornaments and a stunning star topper lights up the park during the holiday season.

SAFETY WHEN SANTA COMES HO HO HO-ing

Thanksgiving has come and gone. The turkey comas have worn off.  The dishes are all done and the houses are all clean (hopefully).  We all know that the day after Thanksgiving, our brains fill with lights, inflatable yard creations, pine, and egg nog.  What we don’t necessarily think of is safety and fires during the fun-filled (and stressful) Christmas season.  So, in hopes to take some of that stress off of all of our wonderful customers, and begin that often forgotten thought train and conversation about holiday safety in our homes, check out the photo below:

TO CHRISTMAS LIGHT OR NOT TO CHRISTMAS LIGHT?

Halloween has come and gone. The evenings are longer, and a bit chillier.  Before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here, and then *POOF* it will be Christmas. 

I don’t know about your family, but the first thing my kids ask about the morning they wake up on November 1 is Christmas lights. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas lights just as much, if not more than, the next guy.  But honestly, they can be a huge ordeal to tackle, for even the most skilled and talented.  It’s not just putting them up, making sure they are all shining or blinking properly, are hung straight and spaced out evenly; removing them and storing them can be an epic nightmare as well.  I would prefer doing just about anything holiday related, including standing in line for Santa with terrified, screaming children, then go anywhere near a string of wadded up, tangled, broken Christmas lights.

So, in light of all of that festiveness (and to help you avoid year-round Christmas lights), we are now offering Christmas light installation, removal, and storage!

Here are just a few benefits scattered across the web for professional Christmas light installation:

 –Staying clear of dangerous, unsafe ladders;

 –Avoiding inclement weather;

 –Faulty extension cords;

 –The aforementioned tangled, damaged, and potentially dangerous strands of Christmas lights;

 –Keeping track of said strands of Christmas lights year-round; and

 –Crossing one thing off of your busy holiday schedule of events, tasks, chores, jobs, parties, and fun.

Like I said, this is the short list; believe me, I could go on and on. I cannot tell you how many years our house had the lights on all year just to avoid dealing with taking them down, storing them, and putting them back up.  So, let us start your holiday season off smoothly and stress free, and you can turn your attention to that 10 foot Noble Fir your kids have been begging you for!
