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.

Latest Tips

Bring fun and romance to your home with dimmer switches.

Tuesday, September 8, 2020

Daylight Savings time is coming soon, which means it will be darker a lot earlier. This means the lights will go on longer in your home. Many people don't like bright lights at night, they opt to illuminate their homes in a more softer glow. One of the best lighting options available today to achieve this affect is the dimmer switch. Dimmer switches control the current sent to a light fixture, allowing you to increase or decrease the amount of light in a room. The switch is usually a slow sliding lever or turns the dial, which allows you to adjust the light manually. There are many reasons why dimmers are so popular among new home builders and remodelers. Now that smart home apps can control the lights, dimmer switches are cooler than ever!

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!

When you need help from an electrician IMMEDDIATELY, this is the company to call. They came out right away, gave me several options for the repair, and the pricing was fair. I can tell you this, if I had another electrical problem this is the company that I would call.

My Mother recently came to live with me, and I needed a fan installed in her west-facing room, to keep it cool in the guest room. I had to wait a little bit, but it was worth it. The price was reasonable, I could tell he was conscientious and he made an extra effort to do as much as he could while he was here - including going down through a difficult attic to install, so the wires would not show. Highly recommend. He came with his grandson and they worked a few hours. Hoping to get him back soon for some more work. Thank you, John!

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.
