There are many home projects that can be performed with DIY methods. In most cases, though, electrical installation is not one of them. Installing electrical devices and systems can be extremely dangerous and can result in injuries or subpar work when not performed correctly.
Unless you’re handy and have experience with electrical systems, leave the work to a licensed electrician. Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric has provided homeowners and business owners in Lake Bluff, IL and Chicago’s North Shore and Chicago’s Northwest suburbs with high-quality electrical installation services since 1928. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Reliable Electrical Installation Service from Ravinia Plumbing
It’s important not to hire the first electrical company you see online, as not all companies are reputable. All electricians in Illinois must be certified and licensed to perform work. Hiring an unlicensed electrician can lead to several issues, including poor installation, electrocution, fire hazards and gas leaks. Old or inefficient electrical systems that don’t perform up to current standards can also increase your monthly energy bills, break down or lead to safety issues.
Ravinia Plumbing can provide electrical installation services for new builds, remodeling projects, replacements, repairs and upgrades.
Types of Electrical Systems Ravinia Plumbing Installs
Contact Ravinia Plumbing if you need any of the following electrical devices or systems installed in your Lake Bluff, IL home:
Whole Home Generators
Do you live in a neighborhood that experiences frequent power outages due to weather or other issues? If so, consider installing a whole-house generator. Unlike small, portable generators, whole-house generators turn on automatically when an outage occurs and can power your entire home. This gives you peace of mind that your family will be safe and comfortable until power is restored, and it prevents food from spoiling while you wait for the power to return.
At-home EV Charging Stations
EVs are continuing to grow in popularity, and that trend will continue at a rapid pace. Whether you own an electric vehicle or plan to buy one in the near future, consider contacting Ravinia Plumbing to install a Level 1 or Level 2 at-home charging station. Gaining the ability to charge your vehicle in your garage each night is incredibly convenient compared to finding a public charging station, which could be located miles away from your home and have long waiting times.
Smart Home Devices
Is your home a “smart home?” Installing smart devices adds an extra layer of convenience and safety to your home. Ravinia Plumbing installs the following smart devices:
- Smart lighting
- Home security systems
- Smart locks and video doorbells
- Automatic blinds and shades
- Voice devices
- Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors
Your home’s wiring can last 50 years or more, but faulty wiring or environmental factors can cause your wiring to break down earlier than expected. If you’re unsure about the condition of your Lake Bluff, IL home’s electrical wiring, contact Ravinia Plumbing. A home’s wiring should be inspected about every three years to check its condition.
Lighting technology has advanced significantly in recent years. Installing new lighting indoors or outdoors can improve your home’s security and aesthetic appeal. Consider installing accent lighting indoors to accentuate wall decor or improve the atmosphere in a room. Ambient lighting, meanwhile, can create a sense of warmth in a room. Security lighting, motion sensor lights, spotlights and floodlights, and landscape lighting make excellent outdoor lighting options.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
It’s incredibly important to install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors across your home to help keep you and your family safe from the threat of fire and carbon monoxide leaks.
Circuit breakers typically last about 30-40 years, but they can break down prematurely due to factors including fluctuating voltages and poor power ratings. If your circuit breaker is experiencing issues, contact a reputable electrician.

Reviews and Ratings
Lake Bluff electrical customer review
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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.”
