Outlets and Switches

Outlets and Switches

Do you have any outlets or switches that are not working in your home or business? Do any of your light fixtures flicker or hard to come on when you hit the switch? If so you have come to the right place. John's Electric has replaced thousands of outlets and switches in homes and local business in the Birmingham.

One of our biggest complaints that we hear is that “we don’t have enough outlets. We have power strips everywhere and our breakers trip.”

Did you know that receptacles or outlets are also referred to as convenient outlets? Convenient outlets are called convenient outlets because if you have enough in the right places: then they are convenient and accessible to the user.

Did you know according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission that electrical outlets have been said to cause 5,300 fires on a yearly basis? The reason why is because there are not enough outlets and the outlets that are available are overloaded. Most homeowners will have a duplex receptacle and install a seven plug power strip or sometimes two strips. In most cases that duplex receptacle is being shared with other duplex receptacles around the house. When this happens, circuits get overloaded and are more prone to catch on fire.

Electrical Outlet and Switch Installation and Repair

You may have plenty of outlets in your home but do they all work correctly. Do have any problems with your receptacles and switches.

We have found many reasons why outlets burn out and have caused a fire and below are just a few reasons:

  • Wired incorrectly
  • Loose connections
  • Back Stabbed
  • Circuit has been overloaded

Over time, existing receptacles can deteriorate and become damaged just from frequent use. When outlets go bad, they need to be replaced by a qualified electrician.

So whether you need more receptacles, or you just need a small repair, call John's Electric today, not matter how small or large the job is, we can take care of it for you today!

What others say about John's Electric Service

I had a strange electrical issue in my home, and I was expecting it to be an expensive repair. Aubrey came out very quickly, ran some tests, and knew exactly what it was. He repaired it for a fraction of the cost of what I was expecting. I will absolutely call John's Electric any time I need a professional electrician. I highly recommend this company.

Thanks for Saving Me!

John's Electric was wonderful! I called and he was at my house within an hour!! I was at great risk of fire because of my breaker overheating, and he got me taken care of quickly, and affordably! I have a home warranty, that wouldn't cover my issue, and he jumped in and took care of me. If I ever had need again, I know who to call. Couldn't recommend John's any higher!!!
