Awesome lighting ideas to brighten your Valentine’s Day!

Valentines lighting ideasFor that special someone in our lives, Valentine’s Day often goes beyond just a simple card. It’s the day to celebrate the love between the two of you and no matter how much time has been invested into that love, you might be surprised to learn that a lot of our significant others are expecting more than just a last minute thought.

With you and your sweetheart in mind, we’ve come up with the following awesome lighting ideas to create a perfect Valentine’s Day ambiance and really impress the love of your life:


  • Decorate your chandelier  - consider changing out the bulbs in the chandelier over your special home made Valentine’s Day dinner, to warm glows like amber, rose, or red colors. Add some strategically placed rose buds for an extra boost of love. Combined with a beautifully decorated table and some candle light, this simple idea can make someone feel very special.

  • Add colorful LED lighting - whether indoors around a well thought out Valentine’s Day Dinner or outdoors under the romantic stars, warm, glowing LED lighting adds a soft, comfortable and warm feeling to your Valentine’s Day evening.

  • Valentine’s Day String Lighting - sold mainly at a party or event store, Valentine’s Day String lighting comes in the shape of various colored hearts, flowers, and other Valentine’s Day themed shapes. Drape these lovely lights over a countertop, stairway railing or even the front door to surprise your special someone coming home.

  • Add Lighting behind a wall hanging of “Love” - very popular right now, canvas prints or paintings of the word “love” are showing up in just about any home goods store you walk into, what better way to add a special “sign” of love than by literally making a lit sign? Simply string some lights around the edge of the frame or put it behind the print for a “love-ly” glow.

  • Turn down the lights - what better “excuse” for a new dimmer switch than a very special Valentine’s Day evening? Have a professional from John’s Electric come install these or any of your other lighting and help you hide it from sight in time for the big reveal!

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 others say about John's Electric Service

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.
