Sometimes it gets incredibly daunting when there is a weak signal or none at all. The internet is supposed to make our lives easier. However, sometimes it can be the source of frustration. If you are working and this happens, your hard work could be lost, or you may spend all day trying to get things done on a weak internet connection. The internet is supposed to make our lives easier, right? A bad WIFI network could hit you hard in your pocketbook.

You may also find your self with a slow network if there are multiple users on it simultaneously or if you are far away from the main router. There are several ways to combat this problem: you could opt to pay more and get a better internet package or save a little and invest in a WiFi extender.

Also referred to as a WiFi booster or repeater, a WiFi extender does just what the name implies; it extends your network's range across your home or office. The extender can essentially double your coverage to create a stronger signal in places you may not have had before; it can even make your WIFI stronger in your yard.

Multiple users can now get online with ease with a faster, stronger connection in every corner of your home. The kit is easy to set up and usually just involves plugging it in connecting it, and you are ready to go.

Bring fun and romance to your home with dimmer switches.

Tuesday, September 8, 2020

Daylight Savings time is coming soon, which means it will be darker a lot earlier. This means the lights will go on longer in your home. Many people don't like bright lights at night, they opt to illuminate their homes in a more softer glow. One of the best lighting options available today to achieve this affect is the dimmer switch. Dimmer switches control the current sent to a light fixture, allowing you to increase or decrease the amount of light in a room. The switch is usually a slow sliding lever or turns the dial, which allows you to adjust the light manually. There are many reasons why dimmers are so popular among new home builders and remodelers. Now that smart home apps can control the lights, dimmer switches are cooler than ever!

What others say about John's Electric Service

First, they were there within the hour of calling them. Secondly, I thought I had 2 bad florescent lights, but it turned out to be tripped GFI outlets. Instead of just going ahead and replacing the lights, the electrician found the tripped outlets and let me know that was all the problem was. He showed me where they were so, if I had a problem in the future I could look there first. I appreciate his honesty. It saved me a lot of money.

My Mother recently came to live with me, and I needed a fan installed in her west-facing room, to keep it cool in the guest room. I had to wait a little bit, but it was worth it. The price was reasonable, I could tell he was conscientious and he made an extra effort to do as much as he could while he was here - including going down through a difficult attic to install, so the wires would not show. Highly recommend. He came with his grandson and they worked a few hours. Hoping to get him back soon for some more work. Thank you, John!

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!!!
