Highwood, IL Electrical Installation

Homeowners with a knack for handiwork can often take care of many DIY projects around their homes. That might include putting in new flooring, painting or installing a new kitchen counter. But when it comes to electrical work, it’s often best left to the professionals.

Installing electrical parts and systems can be dangerous work and should only be performed by licensed electricians who have extensive training in electrical work. Performing DIY electrical installations can lead to sub-par work, potential injuries and an unsafe living environment for you, your family and your pets.

Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric is here to help. We have a team of licensed electricians that can help with installing any electrical system in homes in Highwood, IL, Chicago’s North Shore, and Chicago’s Northwest suburbs. Contact us today to schedule service.

Types of Electrical Systems Ravinia Plumbing Installs

Our electricians provide electrical installation services for new builds, remodeling projects and home additions, or we can upgrade your existing electrical wiring or equipment.

Our electrical installation services include:


Electrical wiring can often last 50 years or more, but premature wear and tear can occur because of faulty wiring or environmental factors. If you’re unsure about the condition of your wiring, contact an electrician to come and inspect it for any issues. Ideally, your home’s wiring should be inspected about every three years.

Some common signs your Highwood, IL home may need wiring upgrades include:

  • Aluminum wiring
  • Not enough power
  • Two-pronged, ungrounded outlets
  • Discolored switches and outlets
  • Persistent burning smell
  • Frequent circuit break trips


If your power frequently goes out due to bad weather or other issues, you know it can be unpleasant. Not only is it highly inconvenient, but your food can spoil and you won’t be able to use your heating and cooling system. Installing a standby generator is a great solution. As soon as your power goes out, the generator’s automatic transfer switch transfers the electricity from the utility to the generator to power your home. When regular power is restored to your home, the switch transfers power back to the utility.


There have been tremendous strides made in indoor and outdoor lighting in recent years. Ravinia Plumbing can install accent and ambient lighting indoors. Accent lighting can accent, or highlight, special spaces in your home to make a strong impression on guests and add some additional beauty to your home.

Outdoor lighting, meanwhile, can be used to highlight unique architectural features of your home or landscaping. It can also be used to make your home safer by adding an extra layer of security. We install:

  • Security lighting
  • Motion sensor lights
  • Spotlights and floodlights
  • Landscape lighting

Smart Devices

Smart home technology is incredibly convenient. It allows you to control your home’s appliances, thermostat, lighting and more all from your smartphone. For example, if you forgot to turn the HVAC system down in the winter before you left for work, you can simply adjust it from an app on your smartphone. Smart locks and video doorbells, meanwhile, allow you to lock or unlock the door and see who is at the door even when you’re not home.

The technicians at Ravinia Plumbing can install:

  • Home security systems
  • Smart locks and video doorbells
  • Thermostats
  • Smart lighting
  • Automatic blinds and shades
  • Voice devices
  • Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors

EV Charger Installation

More people in Highwood, IL, and across Chicago are turning to electric vehicles – and the demand is only going to continue to grow. That’s why we offer Level 1 and Level 2 chargers. We’ll work with you to find the right at-home charging station and then professionally install it for you.

Reviews and Ratings

Lake Bluff electrical customer review

February 2022

I thought my electrical panel dated to 1956 so I called to get an appraisal for replacing it. The technician discovered that it had been updated during some construction in the 1990's. He said it really did not need to be replaced. I highly value the honesty of Ravinia and its workmen. In addition he fixed a balky stapler for me. Now that's service!”

Northbrook furnace customer review

February 2022

“Very impressed with the technician's ability to diagnose the problem in less than 5 minutes. It was fixed in a short period of time and the furnace has been working well since. Mark and Tao also gave our furnace a thorough diagnostic check-up to make sure there was nothing else that could become problematic, including going outside to look at the air intake pipe. We were very impressed with the service provided.”

Lincolnshire plumbing and electrical customer review

February 2022

Have had the need to use Ravinia a few times; obviously the circumstances were unfortunate. The Ravinia plumbers and electricians were in every instance professional, competent, and courteous.”

Deerfield furnace emergency customer review

February 2022

The technicians are always competent, responsive, and really pleasant to work with. I went from "my furnace is on the fritz" on Thursday with a technician out same day to look at it, to an estimate on Friday, and an installation with financing on Monday. The work area is left clean. The technicians care about their appearance and respect the cleanliness of my home. Technicians are always willing to walk me through what's going on in a clear way. They're patient with my questions and thoughtful with their answers.”

Mundelein all services customer review

February 2022

“We have always found Ravinia's work to be thorough and professional, and every job has been completed fully without the need for a second visit.  In our experience, Ravinia has always responded to emergencies with day-of or next-day service.  We have yet to experience any technician who wasn't respectful, professional, and friendly, and also careful about Covid protections

We have used Ravinia for many years, first in our Church-provided housing, and for 6 years in our own home since retirement.”

Lake Forest Home Care Club customer review

February 2022

“Ravinia's annual membership is a great value, pays for itself quickly and gets you timely and professional service. We've been using Ravinia for years and have always received top notch service, particularly in heating emergency situations.”
