Alabama & Auburn Football - Time To Upgrade Your Home Theater.

Alabama & Auburn Football Home TheaterThis year’s Iron Bowl - as it has over the last seven seasons - is once again expected to have a major impact on college football’s national championship. Before we even get to November, though, is your home theater ready to view every detail of every game? The Tide and the Tigers face off is undoubtedly the biggest game in the South this year. Here are some quick and easy upgrades you can make to your home theater so you can clearly hear and see the roar of the crowd and watch the sweat dripping off both Coach Steele and Coach Pruitt’s brow - all from the comfort of your recliner.

Upgrade your TV - In football and in life, one of the best motto’s is “Go Big or Go Home.” In the living room, you should be watching the game with 46 inches - minimum. Avoid “ghosting” and bluriness by choosing a TV model with a high refresh rate (120HZ or above). Once you’ve unpacked your new TV, browse over to the CNET Searchable Guide to optimize your viewing settings.

Add a Sound Bar - You’re sure to hear the roar of the crowd while listening to the concerns of the commentators, by upgrading to a sound bar. This is an excellent alternative to higher end surround sounds and offers superior listening quality. It can sit under your TV or be attached to a wall, shelf or table.

Get your Lights in on the Fun
Color changing Wi-Fi powered lighting are the perfect way to add even more team spirit to your home theater. You can synchronize them with your team’s colors and set them to be as subtle or intense as your desire. The OnSwitch app let’s you choose the “Football” setting that will have your whole living room lit up with your colors and even flash whenever the team scores.

Contact John's Electric when you are ready to up your game day and for all of your electrical needs.

What is GFCI protection and how is it maintained?

Monday, May 6, 2019

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) devices are required in specific areas of our homes by law.  We must all have GFCI protection in certain parts of our house such as our kitchens, bathrooms, unfinished basements, outside our homes as well as our garages. GFCI devices monitor the electricity between the ungrounded (hot) and grounded (neutral) conductors. If there is an improper imbalance between the two conductors the GFCI will stop the power from exiting the receptacle, so no one gets an electrical shock.

What a pleasure it was dealing with Aubrey of John's electric! We had a breaker that would not reset. Aubrey arrived at our house at exactly the time he said he would. He had the problem diagnosed in under a minute and had us back to normal with all of our garage outlets in under 5 minutes. I know that all service calls can't go that quickly, but he sure found the problem right away and got it fixed immediately. I would strongly recommend this company.
