Computer Circuits

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.

Is aluminum wire a fire hazard and what should I do about it?

Monday, March 11, 2019

From the mid-'60s to the early '70s, electricians in many new or remodeled homes installed aluminum wiring to feed branch circuits from the main panel to outlets and lighting fixtures.  What was later discovered is that while continuous runs of aluminum wire didn't present problems, when those wires were connected to light switches, outlets and other wires in junction boxes, the connections deteriorated and became fire hazards.

Aubrey and Jeremy were awesome! I have an old house with old wiring and needed to install a new Range and above Range Microwave. They worked very hard to run new wiring to the breaker box in the basement, installed new plugs, and installed the appliances with great care.

Very dependable, professional, friendly and just good at what he does. John wired an addition for us and repaired my breaker box. He is friendly and trust worthy. I had no problem leaving full access to our home while we were away. I highly recommend him and his phone number will remain in my contacts. Job well done! Thanks again.
