Wiring Installation and Repair

Electricity is something we all depend on. However, we can be left in uncomfortable and dangerous situations when the home’s electrical system, electrical wiring, or electrical components break down.

Contact us today to get your electrical wiring fixed once and for all with our range of wiring installation repairs, and replacement services in Northern Illinois.

Signs Your Home Needs Electrical Wiring Upgrades

Troubleshooting electrical issues requires exceptional skill and the proper tools. The licensed electricians at Ravinia Plumbing rely on vast knowledge and experience in our local community to quickly identify and solve the common signs of wiring issues within your electrical system.

Aluminum Wiring

You may encounter an issue if you’re buying a home with aluminum wiring. Aluminum wiring is safe when properly installed and properly maintained, but it’s no longer up to electrical code.

While rewiring the home may seem like a daunting project, hiring a professional electrician to change the wiring to something like copper is a good idea for new homeowners.

Two-Pronged, Ungrounded Outlets

Two-pronged ungrounded power outlets are no longer up to electrical code. You won’t get in trouble with code violations for having this electrical equipment in your home, but these receptacles must be replaced with code-conforming grounded outlets.

Not Enough Power

If you find yourself plugging in a deep fryer and an air fryer simultaneously and the circuit breaker trips, then it is possible that you are overloading the electrical circuits in your home. Other issues include faulty wiring or wiring that small critters may have chewed up, causing a short circuit.

Many electrical components may not be able to handle the increased electrical current demanded when new appliances or multiple heavy-duty appliances are used within the house, which can send electrical surges through the whole system and damage electrical devices.

Persistent Burning Smell

There is no denying the smell of an active electrical fire when it happens on your property. If you smell a persistent burning smell, especially around outlets when electrical devices are in use, you must contact a licensed electrician immediately for electrical repairs and turn off any circuit breakers for that room to keep your family safe.

Switches and Outlets Are Discolored

Discoloration of switches and outlets of the electrical system is a sign of a short circuit and requires electrical repairs.

Short circuits can be caused by the following:

  • Loose connections

  • Aging and outdated wire

  • Faulty outlets

  • Faulty appliance wiring from DIY electrical work

Circuit Breaker Trips Frequently

If your circuit breaker trips frequently, you have too much electricity drawing from the circuit breaker, and you need a professional electrical contractor to assess these electrical problems.

Sometimes, circuit breakers trip when certain electrical devices are too big for the electrical system breaker. But with the help of our licensed electrician team, we can run additional electrical circuits and install circuit breakers as necessary to power all your appliances.

How Often Should Wiring Be Inspected?

Wiring isn’t meant to be seen, so it makes sense that most homeowners overlook or ignore their electrical systems.

But you should inspect your electrical system wiring at least once every three years, even if everything seems OK. However, if an issue arises that makes you suspect a problem with your wiring, such as tripped breakers or a discolored outlet, call an electrician immediately.

Ravinia Plumbing offers licensed and insured technicians who will come to your house, assess your wiring and electrical systems, and tell you if there are any electrical problems of concern.

We’ll also estimate how much it will cost to complete electrical repairs and schedule routine checkups so you never have to worry about your appliances and electrical systems going unnoticed.

Kitchen Appliances

The best kitchen appliances require reliable wiring to remain safe and operate functionally for as long as possible. Ravinia Plumbing offers reliable appliance installation for customers who need to upgrade their electrical system.

Dedicated Pump Circuits

Do you have a primary sump pump and a battery backup sump pump? If so, they should each be powered by a separate electrical circuit. If one system fails and both share the same circuit, both systems can be without power resulting in a flooded basement.

Call Ravinia Plumbing to add additional dedicated circuits as necessary.
