  • Newport Beach Handyman Installs LED Exterior Light Fixtures and Leviton Occupancy Sensor Infrared Wall Switch for Energy Savings. All In 1 Handyman, providing energy efficient lighting for Mission Viejo and Irvine homeowners, explains how homeowners can go green and save energy with lighting.Conserving energy resources allows homeowners to enjoy cleaner air and a healthier environment. According to Energy Star, Americans saved more than $19 billion and avoided greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 29 million cars through choices they made with energy-saving measures in one year alone.“We’ve definitely seen an increased interest in making homes more energy efficient,” says Steve Bowman, owner of All in 1 Handyman. “One easy way homeowners are going green and saving energy is by using energy efficient lighting products such as LED lighting. Substantial savings are possible whether building a new home, renovating an existing one, or simply updating features to improve a home’s efficiency.”All In 1 Handyman is happy to help homeowners take the newest step forward in providing energy efficient lighting in homes: integrated LED light fixtures. For example, a homeowner in Mission Viejo had replaced his kitchen lighting with LED light bulbs and wanted to switch his outdoor lighting as well. All In 1 Handyman installed three new exterior light fixtures with LED light bulbs. LED lighting has become so reliable, efficient, and long lasting that for many applications, the concept of changing burned out light bulbs is becoming obsolete. In fact, LED light fixtures consume up to 85% less energy than standard lighting over the course of their long lives, while providing just as much brightness and versatility.Another way to save energy and money with lighting is occupancy sensors. All In 1 Handyman was recently contacted by a homeowner in Irvine who needed home repairs and lighting installed. “A lot of new construction here in Irvine comes with infrared wall switches that monitor a room for occupancy, but not every room has one,” explains Steve Bowman, owner of All In 1 Handyman. “The device automatically turns lights on when a person enters a room and off when they leave. This saves energy, provides convenience, and lowers electric bills. I installed two Leviton occupancy sensor infrared wall switches in the pantry, where someone may leave the light on after snacking, and the laundry room where homeowners often have their arms full of laundry or forget to turn the light off.”The occupancy sensor is ideal for any room that would benefit from automatic hands-free light control, such as bathrooms, closets, laundry rooms, basements, pantries, and garages. The high tech switches have a secret spot on the front that adjusts the sensitivity of the infrared sensor and a setting to determine how long the light will stay on after a person leaves. In this case, the homeowner wanted the newly installed sensors set for five minutes for optimum energy savings. All In 1 Handyman was also able to readjust the sensors in the three bathrooms for five minutes as the client requested. Thanks to their help, the homeowner was able to complete all their home improvements just in time for the arrival of twins.
  • Newport Handyman Helps Irvine Homeowner Transform Unused Space into Elegant Residential Wine Cellar Irvine, CA – For the avid wine enthusiast, nothing matches the luxury and elegance of a custom built, in-home wine cellar. Many wine lovers are indulging their passion by taking their wine-tasting or collecting hobby to the next level and constructing wine cellars inside their own homes. A wine cellar can become a fun place for entertaining friends, not to mention an ideal place to control wine storage temperatures and conditions.“Wine cellars represent a great new option for home owners,” says Steve Bowman, a general contractor and owner of All in 1 Handyman. “Sunrooms and home theaters used to be the latest trend, but residential wine cellars are certainly growing in popularity. It’s a wonderful way to add elegance, functionality, and value to a home.”Increasingly, homeowners are making use of a basement, closet, empty room, or unused space in a home to create an environment where they can display their love of wine. Such was the case with a client in Irvine who contacted All in 1 Handyman.The homeowner wanted to divide a room partially used for heating, AC, and a water tank and use the other half as an in-home wine cellar. After removing some old closet doors and sheet rock, All in 1 Handyman framed out a ten-foot long wall with a doorway and added insulation to the ceiling and walls. Can lights along with a pendant light and dimmer switches, Venetian plaster, laminated wood flooring, and a custom stained door to match the wine racks and flooring were installed to allow the homeowner and guests to immerse themselves in the aura and atmosphere of a charming wine cellar. If that weren’t enough, cable was run into the room for a 32-inch flat screen TV so the homeowners could sip their wine and gaze at gorgeous pictures of Italy and the Napa Valley. “We’re very proud of the newly completed custom wine cellar,” says Steve. “The project went smoothly, was completed on time and on budget. It’s a great example of how we can transform a small unused space into a room that allows wine lovers to enjoy their passion.” What better way to ring in the New Year? With 15 years of experience, All in 1 Handyman Services has the knowledge, expertise, and craftsmanship to design and build a wine cellar, perfectly suited to a client’s desires, personal taste, and budget. This unique company specializes in translating client’s dreams into exceptional designs and can help with kitchen and bathroom remodels, flooring, cabinets, carpentry work, and much more.
  • Newport Beach Handyman Shares Creative Ways Homeowners Can Use Recycled Materials When Remodeling Irvine, CA – For those homeowners who don’t want to settle for the ordinary, one of the hottest trends right now is remodeling with recycle or salvaged materials such as reclaimed wood. Homeowners not only have a one-of-a-kind signature look different than the cookie cutter fixtures and accessories found in chain stores but also save money and help the environment. “Companies are popping up today selling old reclaimed wood with years of weathering and turning the material into something  beautiful like picture frames, park benches, fences, planter boxes and yes even doors for master bathrooms,” says Steve Bowman, owner of All in 1 Handyman Services. “Recently a client from Irvine found a website describing step-by-step how to build a sliding barn door. We were asked to install the custom built door with barn door hardware in their master bedroom. The door installation provided an incredible finishing touch on the master bedroom remodel.” If homeowners think outside the box, many salvaged items can be reused in the home. For example, old wooden lockers from a warehouse can be turned into upper cabinets or discarded flower pots can be used as pendant lights adapted to a track light system.  Old fireplace mantles, vintage light fixtures, faucets, or metal ceiling tiles can all be installed for a unique look. Some of the older products are actually better quality as well. The creative and artistic homeowner can even turn recycled materials into works of art or art installation in their homes. Where can recycle materials and products be found? Homeowners may be surprised at all the resources available. Aside from salvage stores and companies that sell reusable home products, check out antique stores, auctions, garage sales, flea markets, Craigslist, and demolition companies. Dilapidated barns are often a good source for wood that can be used in flooring, and wall or ceiling treatments.  Steve enjoys helping homeowners and interior designers execute their vision by providing installation of recycled materials, art installation, or window treatments. He can restore, replace, or repair anything. His wide range of handyman services includes remodeling, painting, finish carpentry work, gates, fences, dry wall, flooring, electrical work, plumbing, window installation, concrete work, deck staining, and much more.
