Highwood, IL Electrical Installation

Electrical Installation in Highwood, IL

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.

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.
