Make life easier with recessed outlets.

We are always looking for new ways to make our lives easier while also implementing the most stylish options available.Make life easier with recessed outlets As technology improves so does the quality of our lives, and we should take advantage of that whenever possible. There is a simple concept on the rise gaining traction in homes and business across the globe: I'm talking about recessed outlets.

For ages, since the advent of electricity, we have had to fight with furniture placement, tripping hazards and just downright eyesores with traditional electric outlets. Recessed outlets eliminate an array of problems we've had to deal with while also providing sleek designs to help improve the look of your home. They can be fitted with as many electric outlets as you need, as well as USB ports that are used for a multitude of technology.

The benefits of recessed outlets include:

  • Hiding behind furniture. You can place your couch, chair, computer desk, bookshelf or any other item flush against the wall without worrying about a protruding electrical cords.
  • Hang a flat-screen TV with ease. You can strategically place a recessed outlet behind a flat screen television equipped with the perfect ports to match up with the cords, while also hiding the entire outlet itself.
  • Create the perfect hidden outlet in the bathroom while maximizing counter space and safely out of the way of splashing water.
  • Customize your kitchen with outlets tucked away in the backsplash in perfect reach of every appliance.
  • Organize computer cords without worrying about kicking them and tangled wires.
  • Add built-in night lights for a functioning and seamless look.
  • Create customized outdoor outlets that are flush with your exterior with as many ports as you need.
  • Stop worrying about tripping hazard and ugly cords hanging around. Bonus: the recessed outlets can be any color or design to match your home.

Recessed outlets are here to stay and are a perfect match for the latest innovations in technology. If you are ready to make the switch to new recessed outlets, John's Electric is standing by ready to help make your life just a little easier.

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.
