Types of Electrical Installation Work Ravinia Plumbing Performs

Some of the most common electrical installations Ravinia Plumbing performs include:

Whole Home Wiring

Although your Northbrook, IL home’s wiring can last 50 or more years, there are instances when it makes sense to replace it, including:

  • Your current wiring is aluminum
  • Your home uses two-pronged, ungrounded outlets
  • There’s not enough power
  • Persistent burning smell
  • Discolored switches and outlets
  • Frequently tripped circuit breaker


Any homeowner can benefit from the installation of a whole house generator, especially if you live in an area that frequently loses power to storms or other electrical issues. Installing a whole house generator can provide you with peace of mind knowing that all of your most critical electrical systems and appliances will turn on automatically when a power outage is detected. This includes your HVAC system, refrigerator, and lighting system.

Smart Devices

Is your home a smart home? If it’s not, the licensed electricians at Ravinia Plumbing can transform it into one for added convenience and efficiency. For example, a smart home allows you to control your home’s most important appliances and electrical systems from your smartphone, including your HVAC system, door locks, and lights.

EV Charger Installation

Whether you own an electric vehicle or plan to, installing an EV charging station in your Northbrook, IL home is incredibly convenient. You’ll have the ability to charge your EV overnight so it’s ready to go the next day, instead of waiting in a long line at a public charging station. EV charging stations also can increase your home’s value. Contact Ravinia Plumbing for Level 1 or Level 2 EV charging station installation service.

Indoor Lighting

Does the inside of your home feel drab? Spice it up by installing accent or ambient lighting. Indoor lighting installation is a cost-effective method to improve the aesthetics of your home by creating a soft glow or dramatic effect in your home or by accentuating a painting or artwork.

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting, meanwhile, provides dual function by improving the appearance of your outdoor space while also increasing the safety of your home. Flood lights and motion sensors can scare would-be burglars away or prevent them from even approaching your house. Outdoor lighting can help your family maneuver around outside more safely. Many homeowners also install outdoor lighting to accentuate their homes or landscaping or extend their home’s living areas, allowing you to gather with friends and family outside during warm summer evenings.

The Importance of Working with Licensed Electricians

Working with unlicensed electricians can lead to poor workmanship and safety issues such as electrocutions, and fire hazards. Licensed electricians have undergone rigorous training and have acquired the necessary knowledge and expertise to handle electrical systems safely and effectively. They also possess a deep understanding of electrical codes, regulations, and best practices, ensuring that all work complies with the highest industry standards. Licensed electricians also follow proper procedures, utilize appropriate safety measures, and have liability insurance, providing protection in case of unforeseen incidents.
