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.

Getting smart about Christmas lights in 2018.

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Halloween came and went, and now, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, once the decorating is finished, that is. One of the most visually pleasing parts of the season is all the festive lights in creative places on neighboring houses. But that type of effect isn't limited to just outdoors; lighting plays a big part in Christmas inside as well. A tree with no lights looks dimly like a big plant in the center of the room. That's until the carefully strung lights shine throughout the magnificent green (and sometimes even white) tree and show off what's adorned on the branches. To make sure you get the most of your festive lighting, this year make a switch if you haven't already too smart lighting with LEDs.

What others say about John's Electric Service

I called because of the great reviews, and was not disappointed. I told Aubrey what was going on and he knew right where the problem was. He communicated well when he would be here and scheduled time with the power company to shut off the main power to replace the main breaker.

I appreciated that Aubrey took the time to make sure that everything was working before he left.

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.

Aubrey did an excellent job with moving our electrical main service. He coordinated with Alabama Power and the Hoover inspectors and everyone was there when they should be. He knew that we needed a special disconnect and ordered the right one. We gave him a key and trusted him to be in and out of the house and yard when he needed to. He kept us informed, did a quality job and went over and above to come out to check on things for us after hours one evening and teach us a few things. Reasonable price as well. A true professional and I will recommend him again.
