This Technology Lets You Control Your Christmas Lights Right From The Comfort of Your Own Phone.

Christmas Lights, Christmas Lights AppWho doesn’t love the holiday season? Time to throw some logs on the fire, curl up with a cup of hot cocoa, put on some classic Christmas music, and drag those boxes of decorations and lights in and out of the attic or garage! But the holidays aren’t all cute carols and peppermint lattes. This time of year usually means shoveling out the big bucks, sometimes adding a second job, replacing those cracked decorations, burnt out lights, and of course the presents!

So, why not find at least one area to save some money, by putting those bright shiny Christmas lights (brand new or dragged in from the garage) on automatic timers?

You probably already use a system using those old school timers, but with those old timers, you can only set one schedule and that’s the schedule for every day of the week. But maybe you’ve decided to host your friends for an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party on Friday and don’t want to go around the house adjusting every single one of those timers so that the lights stay on later just to go back and adjust them again for your normal week.

By adding a few wi-fi smart plugs throughout your house, you have the ability to control anything that’s plugged into them directly from your smart phone or tablet. Using a simple app, you can control the settings to change every day of the week or even keep an eye on the energy usage to change it to a lower setting if you feel like you’re going over. With this kind of technology, you’ll never be surprised at your electric bill and you can kick back with that cocoa (or eggnog).

Stay tuned for more tips from the pros at John’s Electric this holiday season.

What is the future of solar power in Alabama?

Monday, January 6, 2020

The sun is the natural source of the most abundant, reliable, and pollution-free power in the world. However, problems with solar power, namely the expensive cost and inconsistent availability, have prevented it from becoming a more utilized energy source. Just like everything, eventually, it will be more affordable for the average homeowner. Could it be the new way people light up their homes in Alabama?

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 upgraded our electrical fuse panel, put in an updated outside service panel, replaced the main service line from the outside panel to the inside fuse box, and installed several outlets. His original estimate was complete and accurate. He brought our electrical system up to code and made several recommendations for changes and upgrades that we had not thought of. He worked with our schedule, was on time and very professional, and left our home as clean as when he arrived. He was extremely conscientious and reliable. We very highly recommend John's Electric and will definitely use them again.

What a pleasure it was dealing with Aubrey of John's electric! We had a breaker that would not reset. Aubrey arrived at our house at exactly the time he said he would. He had the problem diagnosed in under a minute and had us back to normal with all of our garage outlets in under 5 minutes. I know that all service calls can't go that quickly, but he sure found the problem right away and got it fixed immediately. I would strongly recommend this company.
