Improve Your Game Day

football home theaterUnless you live under a rock, you know that college football season has started and here in Alabama, that means the fun has just begun. Alabamians love their football, so much so that it has become it's own culture and way of life. Our passion for Alabama and Auburn football sets the tone for the entire season and turns lazy Saturday afternoons into a time of excitement, cheers and fellowship. Of course, no matter which team we root for, we always try to keep our sportsmanship in check, right? The one thing that is the absolute center of attention on game day is our TV, and we are always looking for ways to improve our over all viewing experience.

Nothing is better than finally sitting back, cracking open a cold one and enjoying the game with family and friends. Whether it is updating your TV, installing sound system or creating an entire home theater, there are endless improvement to be made to enhance the whole game watching experience. With today's technology, the sky is the limit when it comes to experiencing the action of a live football game.

Adding surround sound makes you feel like you are really at the game, right in the middle of the action. Sound systems have improved considerably over the years, so much so, just adding a couple of small powerful speakers does the job of an entire sound system. There are many ways of improving the quality of sound from your TV and whatever route you choose we can help wire and install any system.

What many people seemed to forget is the lighting of a home theater. Having the perfect light set up creates any mood you want and showcases the game in a way that enhances the entire viewing experience. There are a variety of ways to achieve the best look and function, the most common is the installation of recessed lighting. These can be hidden or uniquely arranged around the room to create incredibly dramatic and mesmerizing effects. LEDs come in an array of colors, sizes, and brightness. Theater lights can installed with dimmers and remote controls to create the ultimate game day experience.

So if you are ready for a few updates to make this football season unforgettable, we are here to help make that happen.

Is aluminum wire a fire hazard and what should I do about it?

Monday, March 11, 2019

From the mid-'60s to the early '70s, electricians in many new or remodeled homes installed aluminum wiring to feed branch circuits from the main panel to outlets and lighting fixtures.  What was later discovered is that while continuous runs of aluminum wire didn't present problems, when those wires were connected to light switches, outlets and other wires in junction boxes, the connections deteriorated and became fire hazards.

What others say about John's Electric Service

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.

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.
