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

Don't just throw away old electronics in the trash.

Monday, July 30, 2018

Once something is broken or no longer of any use, it usually ends up in the garbage.  So when your old cellphone finally takes its last breath, should you toss it in the bin along with the leftovers? No! Sure it's easy enough to sneak in an old phone with your daily trash intake to the curb, but that decision could cost the environment more than you think.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Service was above and beyond excellent. Stuck with us and the power company until the true root of the problem was found. Worked around our schedule and budget restraints. Left things clean and was very respectful. Would definitely recommend him and use him again.

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.
