Outstanding Work Ethic

Joyner Electric was able to locate the problem with my electric service when another company failed. Both Melvin and his son Kyndall showed true professionalism and have an outstanding work ethic. I would recommend them. -HomeAdvisor Review on 6/27/16

Definitely Recommend

Excellent service! I am pleased with the work done by Zack & Chase. After the project was completed, all materials were cleaned up. Both before and after my service the owners, Melvin & Kyndall Joyner, personally contacted me to first see what I wanted done, and afterwards was I satisfied with the completed project. I would definitely recommend this company! Thank you Joyner Electric and Security! - HomeAdvisor Review on 6/29/16

Outstanding Company

It started with great CS skills on the phone, great follow through and follow-up. The work quality was exceptional and the 2 techs (Seth and dang it...forgot his name, sorry) could have not been more helpful and accommodating. I will use NO one else down here in SE Georgia. Outstanding company!! Thank you guys and gals!! - Yelp Review

AWESOME service and Great prices. Melvin and his guys came in to our shop and got us up and running in only 5 hours. From nothing to fully in-business with inside and outside outlets, breaker panels and dedicated outlets for our heavy equipment. I will definitely use you guys again!

Highly Professional

I wanted to tell you how pleased I am with your electrician Zach and the work he performed July 8th at a property we just started to rent. I had quite a large \"to do\" list, including checking existing motion detectors and installing new ones, changing out garage lighting, and installing ceiling fans, etc. He was efficient, flexible, highly professional, and he was all about customer satisfaction...

Katie Larson

Efficient, Polite and Caring

I had a partial power outage this week (the day that we were expecting freezing temperatures that night). I was in a panic. Called Joyner's and they immediately sent out a young man (Zack) to check it out. He was such a nice guy. He was very efficient, polite and caring!! I had electricity and most importantly....heat within an hour. I highly recommend Joyner Electric.

Norma Jean Griffin

Professional and Courteous

I truly appreciate that you came out on such short notice and took care of my mom's electrical problems. Zack and Chase were very professional and courteous. I put your number in our contact list and will recommend you to all my friends.

Joyner Electric & Security, Inc. Earns Esteemed 2017 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

Savannah, GA, March 20, 2018 – Joyner Electric & Security, Inc. is proud to announce that it has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award (SSA). This award honors service professionals who have maintained exceptional service ratings and reviews on Angie’s List in 2017.

“The service providers that receive our Angie’s List Super Service Award have demonstrated the level of excellence that members have come to expect,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “These pros have provided top-notch service to our members and absolutely deserve recognition for the exemplary customer service they exhibited in the past year.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2017 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include maintaining an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade and review period grade. The SSA winners must be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check, record a current trade license attestation and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

Joyner Electric & Security, Inc. Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Joyner Electric & Security, Inc. Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

Joyner Electric & Security, Inc. has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the electrical companies in Savannah, Georgia were able to do it.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”

###
Angie’s List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie’s List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

Hurricane Matthew Aftermath

Hurricane Matthew

We are here for you. Give us a call! 912-236-1730

hurricane matthew - savannah - joyner electric and security
10/8/2016 – Hurricane Matthew. Our Joyner Electric & Security crew was clearing trees out of roads to reach our customers.

Our area took a beating from hurricane Matthew.  We are currently in recovery mode and I am so proud of our community.  Kudos to all of you who are helping your neighbors with their troubles.

First day after the storm, we were called out for service calls… generators needed servicing, houses that were hit had wires sticking out all over the place, security systems were chirping from low battery alarms, and more!  We had to clear trees from roads to even get to our customers.  Again, we are so proud of our community.  Working alongside us, people on the street came out with chainsaws and tractors to help move debris and trees blocking the streets. Check out a couple of our videos from the clean-up. 

Now, our area is pretty much fully accessible with a few exceptions. Last night, Chatham county residents were allowed back in and many found their homes in disrepair and came back to no power.   Much of our area still has no power and it may be the case you just need to wait for the power company to restore power. However…

If your home is not power ready and your electrical system was affected by the hurricane, we can help.  We are licensed, insured, and we will treat you right and not take advantage in this tough time.  We’ve been warned about price gougers and people coming in doing electrical work that isn’t licensed for our area.

Our business place is still without power but that isn’t keeping us from serving our community.  We offer 24/7 Emergency electrical service so please don’t hesitate to call.

When Lightning Hits Your Home or Business

Lighting StrikesLightning Hit

Our area has seen a lot of storms recently and our phones have been ringing off the hooks ever since due to lightning strikes and the damage it has caused. These are two of the most common calls we get after a big storm.

  1. Lightning hit their home or close to it, and electronics got fried and home insurance requires electrical inspection.
  2. Lightning hit and now some outlets & switches aren’t functioning.

Can I prevent damage from a lighting strike?

Lightning is a powerful and unpredictable force.  Even with a lightning protection system and surge protectors, there is no guarantee that lightning won’t find a way to cause damage.  One way to reduce the damage caused by lighting hits is to unplug your devices before a storm begins.  Please do not do this during a storm or while a storm is approaching. Unplugging your devices won’t protect your electrical system but it will prevent your electronics from getting fried.

My home or business was hit by lightning. Now what?

Call an electrician to inspect your electrical system.  We’ll check your electrical system and make any necessary repairs. Here are a few things that we inspect after a home is hit.

  1. Inspect Breaker Panel
  2. Check & Test Outlets
  3. Test Switches
  4. Find & Repair Damage

Bathroom Ventilation Fans

Benefits of a Bathroom Ventilation Fan

A properly installed bathroom ventilation fan can keep your bathroom’s humidity levels down, help prevent mold growth, and reduce odors.  If your bathroom vent fan is installed incorrectly, isn’t running properly, or is undersized for your bathroom, the fan needs to be repaired or replaced.  If your bathroom doesn’t have a bathroom vent fan, you definitely need to consider having one installed.Bathroom Ventilation Fan

So what does the bathroom vent fan do?

The main function of a bathroom ventilation fan is to remove humidity.  While taking hot showers and baths, humid air builds up in your bathroom. The fan will vent that humid air outside.  If your vent fan hose terminates in your attic, that’s a recipe for disaster. That humid air will get trapped in your attic,  penetrating the materials causing mold growth and rot.  The vent hose should be installed so the humid air will vent outside of your home.

What happens if I don’t use the fan?

If you choose not use the fan in your bathroom or if you don’t have an exit for that humidity, the moisture will penetrate your walls and ceilings.  Over time the ceiling texture may crack and black spots will start developing on your walls. Those black spots are mold and nobody wants mold in their home.  Tearing out walls to get rid of mold and putting in new walls is much more costly than repairing or installing a fan in your bathroom.

Exposed TV Cables

Hiding Those Unsightly TV Cables

Exposed cables from TV’s hung on the wall is just not very pretty.  If you want a crisp clean look in your living room or office space, we can get you set up with no unsightly power cords or TV cables showing.

We recently completed a service call for one of our customers. They called us because they were in the process of selling their home and every time they showed their home, she had to remove the cables and power cords.  She quickly realized there was a better way.  Below is the before & after pictures from that service call. Joyner Electric & Security - Before & After Exposed TV Cables

Safety

In many of our service calls about exposed TV cables, safety was a main concern. Businesses like nursing homes can be in code violation when cables and wiring are exposed.  In cases of nursing homes and day cares, it’s not just about aesthetics but loose cables along the wall can become a safety hazard.

What Our Customers Say…

“They had excellent service. They were well prepared to get the job done. They completed tge job fasrmt and cleaned up behind themselves. Last but not least the customer service from both, the technicians and tge office staff was excellent.”

2-Prong Outlets? Time to Update

Out with the old 2-prong outlets2 prong outlet

You may remember the 2-prong outlets that were common prior to the 70’s.   If your house still has them, it’s probably time to make use of the phrase, “Out with old and in with the new”.

Why do I need to update my outlets?

If your home has the 2-prong outlets, your house isn’t necessarily out of code, these outlets are grandfathered in.  In many cases, the wiring to the outlets can be old and brittle with insulation falling off the wire.  When there isn’t proper insulation on the wire, you run the risk of having a short.

What do you do when you have an electrical plug that has 3 prongs when you have a 2-prong outlet? We’re familiar with the adapters some people choose to use instead of having the outlet replaced, It may be a quick and cheap fix but there is no ground and you run the risk of electrical shock.

Outdated 2-prong outletsCan’t I just do it myself?

There are websites out there that show you step by step instructions on replacing 2-prong outlets to 3-prong outlets, HOWEVER, you can never be sure the results will be up to code.  In our review of online instructionals on the topic, we found multiple problems like outlets not being grounded and final results not being up to code.

Be safe and not sorry when dealing with electrical upgrades. Avoid short circuits and electrical shock and get the job done up to code by professionals.

“Joyner Electric is quick, efficient, and friendly! We were very pleased with their service and would highly recommend!”

Charging Your Devices Just Got Easier

Charging Electronics

At my home we have a drawer dedicated to just charging cables and chargers.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to use your wall outlets for things other than charging devices?  I thought so too.  Even though I have four outlets along one wall, I still find myself looking for another outlet to charge my phone or tablet or laptop.  Not to mention my husband’s phone or my son’s walkie talkies and RC helicopter.

Wall Plates with Built In Chargers

Thankfully, there are some very smart people who had the same problems and came up with a new wall plate with chargers built-in.  Now you can plug your USB charging cable directly into the wall outlet and still use the power outlet for other things like a lamp or radio.  For your convenience, I’ve included couple of products (below)on Amazon so you can find a couple different options.  For the tech guru, this is a must-have and even if you aren’t the tech guru it’s nice to have a dedicated charging station in your home. If you would like a couple of these wall outlets for your home, please give us a call and we can get them installed for you.
