Plan Your Electrical Work For Your New Home Construction.

plan electrical work for new home constructionWhen you’re building a new home, your imagination can run wild! What kind of kitchen counters, the prettiest beige carpet, or the light fixtures are all huge decisions. What we don't think about however, are the fun things to do with the electrical outlets! This is the perfect time to add and move things to your liking- most people buy a home and suffer with too few outlets, or badly located ones.

Consider: Does your family go all out for Christmas or holiday decorations? Maybe adding a few well placed extra outlets will save you some headaches this season. Does your son play video games on the TV? Having that extra 3rd and 4th outlet can make the difference between unplugging the DVD player every time, and easily hook their system up. It is also the perfect time to plan a killer sound system! 

One noticeable area is the computer room or section of your home. If you have a printer, computer, wireless router, and other gadgets - you’re looking at a shortage of outlets! It’s simple enough to fix this at new construction time, and much safer than having extension cords throughout the home.

If you have the opportunity to build your dream home, make sure it lives up to every expectation - including the small details! Contact John's Electric with any questions, or help in designing the perfect plug in oasis!

Hot Water Tank Not Cutting It Anymore?

Monday, June 3, 2019

There's nothing better than a nice, relaxing, hot shower.  But what happens when that hot water doesn't stay hot for very long anymore, and that relaxing shower is now an ice bath? It might be time to chuck your old hot water tank and invest in a new one!

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.

Thanks for Saving Me!

John's Electric was wonderful! I called and he was at my house within an hour!! I was at great risk of fire because of my breaker overheating, and he got me taken care of quickly, and affordably! I have a home warranty, that wouldn't cover my issue, and he jumped in and took care of me. If I ever had need again, I know who to call. Couldn't recommend John's any higher!!!
