Environmental Sustainability. Doing Our Part.

environmental sustainabilityPeople are always looking for more ways to go green. More and more people are recycling, cutting energy consumption, driving hybrid and fuel efficient cars, and reusing items for other things. At John's Electric, we are always looking for new ways to save energy and lessen our impact on the environment. With every job, we find ways to save energy to home or business owners. We are often ask what we can do to help lower power bills and make life more convenient in the process. There are many ways to save energy without even realizing it.

Below are some green solutions we offer our customers and recommend to everyone.

  • Install light dimmers - reducing the light output by 50%, it will more than double the length of the light bulb, saving energy and reducing the amount of bulbs thrown away
  • Timers - Use them on outdoor lights so the light doesn't stay on all night. They can be set for any desired time such as dusk-midnight, dusk -10 pm or even dusk to dawn.
  • Motion sensors - lights only come on when someone is around great for outdoor and indoor use.
  • Recycle light fixtures - When we remove lights from homes, if they are in a good safe condition we will take them to goodwill instead of throwing them away.
  • Proper disposal for fluorescent lights - they should never go into the trash or recycling bin because of the harmful chemicals within them.
  • Install LED can lights - 6 LED cans is equal yo the energy consumption of of one incandescent can. The bulbs last for 4 years or longer so you don't have to worry about changing the bulbs, and if the do burn out before then, we will replace it free of charge.
  • Install LED under cabinet lights - they don't get hot and heat up the kitchen and last for a very long time.
  • Use LED lights as much as possible - They save more energy and last longer than incandescent and fluorescent bulbs.
  • Use dark sky out door fixtures - regular lights create horrible light pollution and waste 50% of light straight up into the sky instead of shining on the ground where it is needed. These work like lamp shades directing the light downward, reducing light pollution and harsh glares.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Thanks for Saving Me!

John's Electric was wonderful! I called and he was at my house within an hour!! I was at great risk of fire because of my breaker overheating, and he got me taken care of quickly, and affordably! I have a home warranty, that wouldn't cover my issue, and he jumped in and took care of me. If I ever had need again, I know who to call. Couldn't recommend John's any higher!!!

First, they were there within the hour of calling them. Secondly, I thought I had 2 bad florescent lights, but it turned out to be tripped GFI outlets. Instead of just going ahead and replacing the lights, the electrician found the tripped outlets and let me know that was all the problem was. He showed me where they were so, if I had a problem in the future I could look there first. I appreciate his honesty. It saved me a lot of money.

Very dependable, professional, friendly and just good at what he does. John wired an addition for us and repaired my breaker box. He is friendly and trust worthy. I had no problem leaving full access to our home while we were away. I highly recommend him and his phone number will remain in my contacts. Job well done! Thanks again.
