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.

Can your electric panel handle all of your Christmas lights?

Monday, December 18, 2017

Well, it's that time of year again. To go with the fully animatronic Santa and reindeers on the roof, or not?

That's not a real concern, though there certainly is the risk of creating a possible fire hazard or popping some breakers.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Aubrey upgraded our electrical fuse panel, put in an updated outside service panel, replaced the main service line from the outside panel to the inside fuse box, and installed several outlets. His original estimate was complete and accurate. He brought our electrical system up to code and made several recommendations for changes and upgrades that we had not thought of. He worked with our schedule, was on time and very professional, and left our home as clean as when he arrived. He was extremely conscientious and reliable. We very highly recommend John's Electric and will definitely use them again.

What an amazing electrician Aubrey is!!!! He is honest and he charges reasonable! Never tried to upsell me once and I never felt taken advantage by him! Was the only electrician that came as soon as I called and was always upfront about everything! All the reviews about him are true! That's how I found him and he's proven to be everything everyone has said! Call the best so you can get great service!

Fixed our outside meter box. Less than 2 hours work.

They did wonderful. Alabama Power was a little hard to deal with, but they arranged everything. Pretty good communication. I thought they were a little pricey, even with the coupon. They made the repairs and the power was back on in less than two hours.
