Computer Circuits

Have you ever looked under your desk and saw the horrid mess of tangled cords wrapped around each other looking like a collage of wires gone bad? These cords may even be intertwined with low voltage cords that are going to the printer, fax machine telephone and etc., which is not good because it can affect the overall performance of your devices. It can be such a tangled mess; you can’t even figure out what goes to what.

Every one of these cords is going to something important involving your computer. If you are like most people, you will probably have a surge protection strip or perhaps two of them. With all these devices plugged into the outlets and strips, what ends up happening is that you are using a lot of power and in most cases, you are overloading the circuit. Typically, the circuit that feeds the outlet you are using for your computer has many more outlets on it and perhaps the lights too. Have you ever noticed your lights dim when you print something from your computer?

With so many devices in one room and then by adding a computer, there is a good chance that your circuit could be overloaded. With that said it’s best to have one or two dedicated outlets installed for your computer and computer hardware alone.

It’s very important because overloaded circuits can cause fire, electrocution, property damage and destroy your computer. John's Electric, can install the right circuit for your needs and clean up all the cords behind your desk, so they are organized and safe.

Call John's Electric today, and one of our safety experts can take care of all of your electrical and networking needs.

Does my main water line need replacing?

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

While commonly taken for granted, the fresh water coming into your home or business is crucial to your daily life. The main water line that carries the fresh water is typically very durable and built to last. However, several factors cause breakage in the line. Commonly, these factors include corrosion, tree roots, or just the type of plumbing pipe used when the home or commercial building was built.

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.
