John's Electric troubleshooting
 works in your home by:

• Locating problematic areas of the home

• Listing the appliances that are not working

• Determining circuit breakers that are tripped

• Ensures correspondence between electrical components



Once everything is thoroughly checked out, the next step is to make sure that every works properly. A properly working electrical system can provide you with much better energy efficiency. Saving money on your energy bills does not have to come at an unmanageable cost.

There’s lots of ways in which you can save money on your electric bills. Besides a working electrical system, you should always turn the lights off in the room that you’re not in. Turning off the lights will keep you electric bill at a minimum.

Another thing to prevent high energy bills is to do a sweep. Things such as leaving your ceiling fan running can cause your energy bills to skyrocket. Whether you realize it or not, every time you leave a light on or ceiling fan run you are paying for it. On the other hand, ceiling fans running in place of overworking your A/C can cut your costs significantly, and living in north central Alabama, you know how hard your A/C works.

Troubleshooting in your home is the first step of many in how you can go from being broke every month to having more money in your pocket. Having more money in your pocket means that you have made your home as energy efficient as possible.

There are lots of other ways in which you can make your home more efficient. One of them is upgrading old appliances. Older appliances run constantly and break down a lot. When they do they end up costing more to repair than they are worth to replace.

Look into new appliances and also energy saving light bulbs. These are not your traditional type of bulb. They are constructed to last and will not use up a lot of energy. Help protect the environment by using less energy.

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.

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.
