The Importance of Outdoor Outlets

Outdoor Electrical OutletsWith summer time coming to an end and fall weather approaching, the weather is going to be perfect for spending time outside with friends and family. Backyard cookouts, outdoor family games and good conversation late into the night make for great memories.

To enhance your backyard enjoyment and get the most out of family evenings outdoors, it’s likely some electricity will be included. With added comfort and convenience, electricity ran outdoors can add perfect mood music and lighting, provide a way to charge phones and laptops or even setting up outdoor movie projectors.

For taking indoor fun to the outdoors and making lasting memories, you’re going to need some outdoor outlets. The professionals at John’s Electric are here to help you understand proper placement and safety when choosing to include outdoor outlets around your yard and outdoor patio area.

Most homes have at least one outlet outdoors in the front of the house and at least one more in the back. With today’s technology and electronic needs, one outlet is really not enough to keep up.

If you own several pieces of lawn equipment like hedge trimmers or weed eaters, you might find yourself forced to use extension cords - which when exposed to the elements can be very dangerous. Pulling too much electric from one outlet can cause the circuit to overload and is actually a fire hazard that can be easily avoided.

At John’s Electric, the Birmingham Metro Area’s Premier Electrician, we want to make your outdoor activities convenient functional and safe. Contact us today to discuss the installation and placement of your outdoor outlets and start making the most out of your outdoor living today.

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.
