Up Front Pricing

What exactly is up front pricing? Upfront pricing is giving an exact quote to the penny for any type of electrical repair or installation you may need. There are never hidden fees in our pricing. No surprises. We will show you the price up front, before any work is started in writing and the price will not change, guaranteed.

Would you rather have an upfront price for the things you want to purchase or would you like an open-ended ticket that you wouldn’t know what the bill is when the contractor is done? Here in Birmingham you can turn on the news on any given night and see how an innocent consumer was ripped off by a contractor. It’s very unfortunate and having an up-front price in writing will protect you. Never hire a contractor that will not give you a price in writing with a full scope of work. 

Most consumers prefer to know an exact price; that's why we use a national standard Up Front Pricing guide. John's Electric only charges by the job, not by the hour.

There are never any hidden charges unlike time and material pricing. Time and material pricing has been a standard for many for a number of years, but we have found it's not fair to customers. Here are few reasons why:

• Homeowners have to constantly watch the clock and technician to make sure he is working. He has to make sure he hasn't gone to his van to many times. Talk too much or take cigarette breaks.

• Homeowners never know what the price is going to be until the job is done.

• No hidden charges or two or three-hour minimums.

• The contractor does not have to send expert electricians to the job, because if they get done to fast, that means they don't make as much money.

At John's Electric, you will not have to worry about the price or an opened ended ticket and afterwards get the surprise of your life. No matter, the size of the job, small or large, when our electrician arrives at your home or business, he will first evaluate what you need to have done and will then show you what the job will cost before the job starts. Never have one of those unpleasant surprises at the end of the job. We evaluate every job to ensure that we will provide you with the best and most cost-effective solutions.

Prices come from our standardized pricing guide right from our iPads. We will provide an Up Front price and go over every aspect of the estimate together. Prices will not be concocted out of thin air or based off of where you live or the type of home you live in. Everyone is treated the same.
We can send copies of your estimates, invoices and home inspections straight to your smart phone, tablet or computer. Just one more way our business is going green.

You don't have to worry about math mistakes or something added or not added. There is no confusing or hard to read handwriting either. Everything is spelled out. Giving everyone a clear picture of what is going to be done. To many times we have seen bad contracts where the homeowner is not covered. So call John's Electric today at 205-426-0583, or you can also use our online request form.

Amazing new technology powers wearable devices with our own sweat.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

A team of engineers from the University of California, San Diego has developed remarkable stretchable power cells that take energy from your own sweat and power electronics, like LEDs and even Bluetooth radios!
For a field that has been struggling to come up with devices that are powerful enough and stretchable enough, these epidermal biofuel cells are a major breakthrough. The breakthrough was achieved thanks to a combination of extremely clever chemistry, highly advanced materials and electronic interfaces. This combination let them build a highly stretchable, electronic foundation using lithography and screen-printing to manufacture 3D carbon nanotube-based cathode and anode arrays.
The biofuel cells are equipped with an enzyme that oxidizes the lactic acid present in human sweat to generate current. This turns the sweat into a source of power. Because the concentration of lactic acid in a person's sweat gets diluted over time, the team is exploring a way to store the energy produced while the concentration of lactate is high enough and then release it gradually.So future work is needed before this technology can be considered a full success.

What others say about John's Electric Service

I called because of the great reviews, and was not disappointed. I told Aubrey what was going on and he knew right where the problem was. He communicated well when he would be here and scheduled time with the power company to shut off the main power to replace the main breaker.

I appreciated that Aubrey took the time to make sure that everything was working before he left.

What a pleasure it was dealing with Aubrey of John's electric! We had a breaker that would not reset. Aubrey arrived at our house at exactly the time he said he would. He had the problem diagnosed in under a minute and had us back to normal with all of our garage outlets in under 5 minutes. I know that all service calls can't go that quickly, but he sure found the problem right away and got it fixed immediately. I would strongly recommend this company.
