Evanston, IL Cooling Services
Nothing’s better than walking through your front door and getting hit by a blast of cold air on a hot, summer’s day. Ravinia Plumbing’s HVAC contractors offer a full range of cooling services to keep your HVAC system operating efficiently and reliably throughout the hot months. Our cooling services include:
Air Conditioning Maintenance
Air conditioners can last about 15-20 years on average, but only if regular maintenance is performed. You should schedule an AC tune-up once per year, preferably in the spring before the arrival of warmer weather. During a maintenance visit, your technician will clean the necessary components and ensure the unit is operating safely. They can also catch minor issues before they lead to bigger, more expensive repairs.
Air Conditioning Repair
Speaking of AC repair, it’s important to have any issues checked out by an HVAC technician as soon as possible to limit the damage. Some common air conditioning repairs Ravinia Plumbing performs include refrigerant leaks, clogged condensate drain lines, failing blower motors, and bad capacitors.
Air Conditioning Installation
Although we want to put off buying a new air conditioner for as long as possible, like all mechanical devices, air conditioners do have a shelf life. If your system is older, inefficient, or breaking down frequently, it’s time to consider air conditioner replacement services.
Ductless Mini Splits
A ductless mini split heat pump system is different from a traditional HVAC system because it can provide both heating and cooling for year-round comfort. Ductless mini splits consist of an outdoor unit and multiple indoor air handling units installed throughout different rooms in your home. Each air handler is controlled separately by its own thermostat, allowing you to create temperature zones across your home.
Evanston Heating Services
Having a reliable heating system is a must during the chilly, snowy Evanston, IL winters. The technicians at Ravinia Plumbing can provide the following HVAC services for your heating system:
- Furnace maintenance. Annual furnace maintenance in the fall before the arrival of winter can help your unit run more efficiently and prevent untimely breakdowns on the coldest days of the year. Annual maintenance will help your furnace last 15-20 years.
- Furnace repair. Just because your furnace breaks down, doesn’t mean it needs to be replaced. Oftentimes, a simple furnace repair can get your unit back up and running again, especially for younger systems without a history of repairs.
- Furnace installation. All furnaces have an expiration date. Even if your furnace is hanging on by a thread, it is likely inefficient and causes high energy costs. If your unit is over the age of 15, breaking down frequently, or heating your home unevenly, it’s time to consider furnace replacement services. Contact Ravinia Plumbing to schedule service.
- Other heating services. Ravinia Plumbing also offers maintenance, repair, and installation service for boilers and radiators, ductless mini splits, and radiant heating systems.
Indoor Air Quality Services
While keeping your Evanston, IL home properly heated and cooled is of vital importance, so is the quality of your home’s air. Indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.
Contaminants and pollutants in your indoor air supply can lead to health issues, especially for those who suffer from asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues. Humidity levels that are too high or too low can also lead to health issues and can damage wood floors and furniture.
Ravinia Plumbing installs the following indoor air quality equipment for Evanston, IL homeowners:
- Air cleaners
- Air purifiers
- Air Duct Repair

Pipe Replacement & Repair
Since your plumbing pipes are usually located between walls and in crawl spaces, it can often be difficult to know whether they need to be repaired or replaced. Look for the following signs that indicate repair or replacement is warranted:
- Corroded pipes

- Poor water pressure
- Frequent leaks
- Loud or unusual noises from pipes

If you have a basement or crawlspace, you need a properly functioning sump pump. Sump pumps are responsible for pumping excess water caused by heavy rains or plumbing emergencies out of your basement and away from your home.
Quality Sewer Services in Evanston, IL
It’s important to keep your home’s sewer system in good shape, as a clogged sewer line can lead to a disaster if sewage overflows into your toilets or tubs. You can count on Ravinia Plumbing for the following sewer services:
- Sewer ejector pumps. If you have a bathroom, washing machine, or plumbing fixture located below the main sewer line, such as a basement bathroom, you need a sewer ejector pump to ensure wastewater flows upwards toward the main line and out of the home. Ravinia Plumbing can repair or replace sewer ejector pumps.
- Sewer video inspection. A sewer video inspection involves fastening a video to a snake-like cable and inserting it into the sewer. This method allows plumbers to pinpoint the exact location of the clog to eliminate any guesswork.
- Sewer rodding. During sewer rodding, your plumber will insert a flexible rod, tool, chemicals, or water into the sewer to clear out any clogs that are blocking the flow of water.
- Sewer excavation. Based on the findings of the sewer video inspection, you may need a section of the sewer line replaced. Sewer excavation involves using earth-moving equipment to dig a hole and locate the sewer line. From there, a repair or replacement can be made.

Reviews and Ratings
Evanston frozen pipe emergency customer review
“We had a frozen pipe on a Sunday; they sent a very experienced plumber, John, who quickly solved a problem (the location and nature of the leak) that wasn’t easily apparent. And as members of their home care club, this emergency weekend fix ended up with a vey reasonable cost. I also appreciate the Ravinia pros who come out, as they are always consultative and informative.”
