Creative Electrical Ideas for New Home Construction.

electrical wires, new constructionWhen it comes to the excitement and anticipation of building your new home, countless ideas may be running through your mind. The perfect placement of each window, wall, and door. Paint colors and textures, the perfect flooring choices, exterior and interior materials, and those specific details that make your newly built home one of a kind and truly yours.

With those common ideas going into your blueprints with the most ideal options for layouts and measurements being discussed with your contractor, what about including some creative electrical options as well?

In a modern home, electrical options are more than just placement of outlets, circuit breakers, GFI’s and wiring choices. There are countless creative electrical ideas to add functionality, convenience and even energy savings to the plans for your newly built home.

Some of the following ideas are great for a discussion with your electrical contractor when you’re ready to brainstorm the finer details of your home:

  • Solar panels
  • LED’s
  • Halogen bulbs
  • Extremely Long Life Batteries
  • Pre-wiring an indoor outdoor home theater
  • Built in Wifi
  • Security System (cameras, alarm, smartphone controlled security)
  • Remote access to your doors, lights, thermostat and garage
  • Heated tiles
  • Electric fireplaces
  • High efficiency washers and dryers, hot water heaters, refrigerators and dishwashers
  • Bedside light switches
  • Towel Warmers

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.

Very dependable, professional, friendly and just good at what he does. John wired an addition for us and repaired my breaker box. He is friendly and trust worthy. I had no problem leaving full access to our home while we were away. I highly recommend him and his phone number will remain in my contacts. Job well done! Thanks again.

I was very satisfied with the service. I drilled a hole in my main service line on a holiday, and they had me up and running the same afternoon. Thanks!!

Mr. Teele arrived quickly, diagnosed our outage problem and fixed it that same afternoon. We have an older electrical system that many other electricians simply won't work with. But Mr. Teele confidently made repairs and even called to check on us the next day to ensure all was working well.
