On those days when the temperature and humidity levels skyrocket, you need a comfortable oasis to return home to after a long day. The HVAC technicians at Ravinia Plumbing can provide the following cooling services:
Many homeowners forget to have their air conditioners regularly serviced, which can lead to significant issues including breakdowns, high energy bills, and wear and tear that causes premature replacement.
If your air conditioner is acting up, contact a reputable HVAC provider to inspect the unit and make the appropriate repair. AC issues can be as minor as needing to replace an air filter to more serious issues such as refrigerant leaks, bad capacitors and failing blower motors.
It eventually makes more sense to upgrade to a new, energy-efficient air conditioner. We recommend replacing your existing AC if it’s more than 15 years old, breaking down frequently or running inefficiently, causing high energy bills.
Ductless mini splits are a popular choice for Wheeling, IL homeowners to heat and cool their homes. Ductless mini splits don’t require ductwork, and, instead, consist of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air handling units that can be installed throughout a home. They can be used to provide conditioned air to a garage or home addition where there are no existing ducts, or to heat and cool your entire home.
It’s important to have a reliable heating system on those freezing nights in Wheeling, IL. An unexpected breakdown can lead to discomfort and even safety issues, especially for young children, the elderly, and those with health conditions. Contact Ravinia Plumbing for the following heating services:
Like your home’s air conditioning system, furnaces need maintenance once a year, preferably in the fall before you turn the system on for the first time. Well-maintained furnaces break down less frequently and can last about 15-20 years.
If your furnace is experiencing issues such as loud noises, unpleasant odors or inefficient airflow, Ravinia Plumbing can help. We can inspect the unit and make the appropriate repair. Often, a simple repair is all that’s needed to return your system to good working order.
If your furnace struggles to make it through the winter or breaks down, instead of spending your hard-earned money on frequent repairs, consider upgrading to a new furnace. Not only will you reduce the chance of a breakdown, but you’ll also recoup some of the money through lower energy bills.
Ravinia Plumbing also offers maintenance, repair, and installation for the following types of heating systems:
Many Wheeling, IL homeowners are often surprised to know that the air quality inside their homes is often two to five times more polluted than the air outside. This is concerning because people spend an average of 90% of their day indoors.
If you’re experiencing indoor air quality issues in your Wheeling, IL home, Ravinia Plumbing can help. We can maintain, repair and install the following IAQ equipment.
We also provide air duct repair service. It’s estimated that as much as 20% to 30% of conditioned air is wasted through duct leaks or poorly installed ducts. Some of the common signs that you need air duct repair service include high energy bills, dust around air vents, noticeable air leakage and strange sounds coming from the ducts.
Like most homeowners, you probably don’t pay close attention to your sewer and drain lines – until a problem arises. Sewer and drain issues can be as minor as a clogged bathroom sink to a major sewage backup that can cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home.
If you have a major sewage problem in your Wheeling, IL home, we can perform a sewer video inspection to pinpoint the exact location of the backup. During this service, our plumbers insert a sewer camera system into the sewer line.
The bright lights from the camera allow the plumber to see inside the sewer line to find the exact location of the clog. The camera transmits images to a monitor that allows the plumber to diagnose the issue and develop the best solution to fix it. Sewer camera inspections prevent plumbers from digging up areas all over your yard in search of the sewer line clog.
Ravinia Plumbing also offers the following sewer and drain services.
Serious plumbing issues such as overflowing toilets and leaky water heaters can quickly wreak havoc in your home. Ravinia Plumbing has provided plumbing services to our area for nearly 100 years. We can maintain, repair and install the following plumbing systems and equipment.
If you experience a gas leak in your home, leave the home immediately and call 911 or the local gas company. Once the gas has been turned off, contact Ravinia Plumbing to repair the line.

Plumbing pipes are incredibly durable, but they break down over decades of use and eventually need to be repaired or replaced. If you notice signs of corrosion or leaks, contact Ravinia Plumbing.
Installing new plumbing fixtures can instantly improve the aesthetics of your bathrooms and kitchen. Installing water-efficient toilets, faucets and showerheads will also reduce your monthly water footprint, which will save you money and help the environment.
Sump pumps are installed in basements and crawlspaces to remove excess water caused by heavy rainfall or naturally occurring groundwater. Sump pumps typically last about 7 years, so you should have your pump inspected regularly.
You don’t want to be stuck without hot water due to a water heater malfunction. Ravinia Plumbing installs the following types of water heaters:
Backflow valves help protect your drinking supply from contamination and pollution. Ravinia Plumbing can install, repair and perform the required annual inspection of these safety devices.
Leaks, bad smells, no power, or humming sounds are all signs that your garbage disposal needs service. While a repair can often return your disposal to working order again, we recommend replacing the unit after about 10 years.
Replacing a light switch or an electrical outlet can be DIY tasks. However, anything more serious requires the skill of a licensed electrician. Working with electricity is extremely dangerous and can lead to fires, injuries and even death.
