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!

New homeowners should never ignore these electrical responsibilities.

Monday, August 9, 2021

Whether the issue is large or small, problems with electricity are often ignored until they become apparent.  It's easy to avoid thinking about problems that can occur in our appliances, circuit breakers, wall outlets, and even light bulbs. But often, ignoring issues while they are small leads to more significant problems and the necessity for the help of an electrician.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Aubrey upgraded our electrical fuse panel, put in an updated outside service panel, replaced the main service line from the outside panel to the inside fuse box, and installed several outlets. His original estimate was complete and accurate. He brought our electrical system up to code and made several recommendations for changes and upgrades that we had not thought of. He worked with our schedule, was on time and very professional, and left our home as clean as when he arrived. He was extremely conscientious and reliable. We very highly recommend John's Electric and will definitely use them again.

Service was above and beyond excellent. Stuck with us and the power company until the true root of the problem was found. Worked around our schedule and budget restraints. Left things clean and was very respectful. Would definitely recommend him and use him again.

First, they were there within the hour of calling them. Secondly, I thought I had 2 bad florescent lights, but it turned out to be tripped GFI outlets. Instead of just going ahead and replacing the lights, the electrician found the tripped outlets and let me know that was all the problem was. He showed me where they were so, if I had a problem in the future I could look there first. I appreciate his honesty. It saved me a lot of money.
