The magnificence and drama of a crystal chandelier cannot be matched by any other lighting medium.  An amazing chandelier can cause one to become awe-struck. Beautiful and captivating, chandeliers come in an endless selection of finishes such as iron, brass, gold, and silver and designs including traditional, contemporary, and custom made art pieces. Some even come with colored crystals!

Chandeliers are a huge liability so make sure you have them installed by a licensed and insured professional .

We opened up a wall in a bathroom and this is what we found. See those wire nuts covered in electrical tape?  All wire nuts need to be in a box.   In any situation where a wire is cut and connected to another wire you must have a box. This is an electrical hazard that could start a fire and what if the wire connection were to become loose?  One would have to cut a hole (or several) in their wall just to locate and fix the loose connection.  If you find wire connections not in a box, call a licensed electrician immediately.

 

In this situation a homeowner called us out of Marietta to tell us they did not have grounding on half of their house. They just bought the house from someone who claimed to have had it remodeled. Sure the interior looked nice but when you got into the real construction it was obvious this was a DIY sort of project. This mess was found in the insulation of the attic!  Look closely, you can even see where bare wires are barely connected and are not even covered in electrical tape. BEWARE the do-it-yourself home remodel! Always have a licensed professional thoroughly inspect the electric when buying a new home. In this case, Poss Electric safely restored the wiring with the proper connections and placed them in the appropriate box. After fixing several more issues found just like this one, grounding was restored to the entire house. Poss Electric has the experience and knowledge to fix any residential wiring issue to code or better!

Have you been to the movies lately? The cost is phenomenal! I took our two children not too long ago and after 3 tickets, popcorn, a drink, and some candy I had spent almost $70!! With today’s technology of streaming television and renting movies with a couple of clicks of our fingertips, one wonders why we even bother to go to the cinema anymore.  For the cost of several trips to the movies you could purchase a decent sized flat screen and surround sound system for yourself.  Why deal with the hassle and cost of ‘going out’ to the movies when you could create your own theater experience right in your own home?  

Everyone nowadays seems to have a flat screen, but a hanging TV can be an expensive liability.  Make sure it is installed correctly by a licensed and insured electrician. It is important to only use the UL listed bracket sized for your TV.  The proper bolts and correct spacing must also be used. Mounts come in a variety of options from fixed to swing out, tilted, swivel or a combination of. Poss Electric is an established company with the professional experience you need to install your flat screen properly.

Got a spoiled pooch?! We recently installed an Under Cabinet Light inside a dog house built into the closet under the stairs in a house in Smyrna!

Nothing too fancy here.  The home owner wanted something inside the dog house that they could just reach up and under to switch on for cleaning purposes.  However, we can get super fancy for all those dog spoilers out there by installing a fixture safely out of Fido's reach and adding a switch outside the doghouse for more convenience.

Either way, what a neat idea.  I better step it up because my dogs don't even have an indoor doghouse! I'm just sure they would love one!

 

 

So you are going to remodel your kitchen?  Take your lighting plan into account right away.  Many homeowners fail to plan their lighting needs accordingly or put it off as a last minute decision, and this will only lead to heartbreak later! What good is that beautiful oak cabinet and flashy new marble counter-top if no one can see them? Lighting choices are a huge factor in the ambiance and functionality of your kitchen. Consider these lighting types when designing your perfect kitchen.

Recessed lighting are placed within your ceiling and are unobtrusive yet powerful.  Position them over sinks or appliances for task lighting.  They can also be directed to a particular point of interest and are great for accent lighting.

Pendant lights are not only functional but they come in a huge array of styles, colors, and designs. Pendants are ideal over islands, bars, and small dining room tables.

For the kitchens that can handle the size, why not a chandelier? Chandeliers also come in enormous variety of designs.  A tastefully selected chandelier will be focal point and wow factor for the right kitchen.
