Appliance Circuits

Did you know that one of the main focal points of your home is the kitchen? Not only does it have to be practical but most people want it to look beautiful too. Many times we have heard there is not sufficient space, not enough circuits for our appliances that we want to use. Every time we plug in the crock pot, the circuit trips.

If you plan on remodeling your kitchen, or if you want new appliances installed, then call John's Electric today. It’s very important that you make sure you have the correct circuit for what you are intending to use, and that you have enough circuits, and they are the right size.

Our electrical experts can inspect your electrical system and wiring and see if it’s adequate to have a new appliance installed with your current electrical system. We can make sure you have the correct power, voltage, amps and circuit wiring for your new appliances. We can also make sure you have life-saving devices, such as GFCI protection where it’s needed.

There is nothing worse than spending thousands of dollars on new appliances to find out that you can’t use them because the wiring is not the right size or in other words, it can’t take the electrical load of the new appliance.

Many of the homes in Birmingham are older, with that said times have changed since the 40s and now, we have more and more appliances that we use in the kitchen today than what we did in the past, and it’s very important that we have plenty of circuits to meet the demands of today.

If you plan on purchasing new appliances, or perhaps you’re remodeling your kitchen, then call your hometown electrician, John's Electric today! We will make sure you have the most electrical efficient kitchen in the neighborhood with good lighting and plenty of circuits.

Latest Tips

Spring is the perfect time for an electrical safety inspection

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Electrical circuitry and panels tend to get ignored throughout the year and only get addressed when you experience a short circuit or electrical trips. As a homeowner, you may not know everything involved in the electrical circuitry of your home but there are still some questions you should ask your electrical inspector and Spring is the perfect time to do it!

No matter the size of the job, from changing out old electrical paneling to major renovations to your home or property, you should always ask your electrical inspector whether or not your home’s electrical fittings are up to date and in compliance with current regulations and building codes.

Secondly, be sure your electrical inspector pays attention to the safety of your electrical panel and makes sure that they are properly insulated to avoid electrical shock. Panels must also never be placed near damp or wet areas.

Understanding your electrical consumption is also important. Washing machines, televisions and air conditioners consume significant amounts of electricity, and it is your responsibility as the homeowner to be sure they are connected to the right circuitry to avoid electrical shorts or fluctuations in voltage.

Lastly, once the inspection is completed and any necessary repairs made, have your inspector run a double check to be sure all of your electrical circuitry is working properly. Ask your inspector to provide you with a complete report of all inspections and repairs done.

Why is my main breaker on the breaker panel tripping all the time

Monday, April 17, 2017

Any of these issues can cause significant injury or death by electrocution or fire. If that consistent breaker tripping occurs in your home, try turning the breaker off and then on again. If it stays on, the issue may be resolved. If not, and the breaker still trips, try to determine which part of the electrical system is causing the problem. Your safety is of utmost importance. With any electrical issue, calling your electrician (and hey we know a awesome one...you can find that awesome electrician here) first can keep you out of serious danger.

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.
