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.

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

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.

Aubrey was very helpful, explaining things as he went and making sure that everything worked good before he left.

I had a strange electrical issue in my home, and I was expecting it to be an expensive repair. Aubrey came out very quickly, ran some tests, and knew exactly what it was. He repaired it for a fraction of the cost of what I was expecting. I will absolutely call John's Electric any time I need a professional electrician. I highly recommend this company.

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.
