I was so impressed with the professionalism and communication Jake provided while working with me. He did a complete overhaul of the lighting and outlets for the salon I’m opening in downtown Dubuque. It was a large project and he did a great job. The work was spot on and he was great about checking in with me as the project progressed. I will certainly be recommending Great River Electric to anyone considering a project.

Nakita Residential Client

I had some electrical work done by Jake, it was the best experience I had while building my house. He was very prompt and professional. I wasn't sure what exactly I needed to complete my basement. He gave me great ideas I never thought about but never pressured me into anything. He gave me many helpful options and was very knowledgeable. It was great to have someone like that when you're not exactly sure what you need or may want.

In the event of an electrical emergency, prioritize your safety and take the following steps:

  • If someone is experiencing an electric shock, immediately turn off the power supply at the main breaker and call emergency services.
  • If you notice signs of electrical fire, such as smoke or burning smells, evacuate the premises and call the fire department.
  • In the case of a power outage affecting your home only, check the circuit breaker panel for tripped breakers or blown fuses. If unable to restore power, contact us for help.
  • Never attempt to repair electrical problems yourself during an emergency. Instead, give us a call and we will help!

Flickering or dimming lights can indicate various issues within your electrical system. Common causes include loose wiring connections, overloaded circuits, or problems with the electrical panel. Loose connections can lead to intermittent power flow, causing lights to flicker.

 Improving electrical safety in your home involves several measures:

  • Regularly inspect and maintain your electrical system, including outlets, switches, and wiring.
  • Install ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) in areas prone to moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor outlets.
  • Upgrade outdated wiring to meet current safety standards, especially in older homes.
  • Avoid overloading circuits by distributing electrical loads evenly.
  • Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors regularly and replace batteries as needed.
  • Consider installing whole-house surge protectors to safeguard against power surges.

Backup systems provide you peace of mind by seamlessly providing you power during blackouts caused by storms, natural disasters, or utility power shedding. Some backup systems also protect you during electrical brown-outs that you may not even realize are damaging your motors in your furnace or other appliances with the voltage dip, this could prevent you from having to spend thousands of dollars in replacing appliances.

A new electrical panel ensures your home has a steady flow of electricity. Not only can that eliminate problems with flickering lights and brown-outs, but it can also allow you to add appliances and other electronics without worrying about tripping breakers, blowing fuses, or damaging the appliances. Plus this will increase your home wiring system’s safety and also give you higher amperage rating for all your appliances.
