Installation, Diagnosis and Repair of Wiring

Electricity is something we all depend on. However, we can be left in uncomfortable and dangerous situations when it breaks down. When your electrical devices and home electrical systems have an issue, you may be tempted to fix the wiring yourself, but this is a dangerous job that’s best left to a team of electrical contractors. 

That’s where we come in. The team at Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric is happy to offer comprehensive and high-quality wiring services to customers in Chicago’s North Shore and Chicago’s Northwest suburbs, including Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, and more. Our wiring upgrades will improve your home’s functionality and boost curb appeal.

Contact us today to get your wiring fixed once and for all with our range of wiring services.

Signs Your Home Needs Wiring Upgrades

Troubleshooting electrical issues require exceptional skill and the proper tools. The professional electricians at Ravinia Plumbing rely on vast knowledge and experience in our local community to quickly solve the common signs of wiring issues.

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 code, so changing the wiring to something like copper is a good idea.

Two-Pronged, Ungrounded Outlets

Two-pronged ungrounded outlets are no longer up to code. You won’t get in trouble for having them in your home. But 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 breaker trips, then it is possible that you are overloading the electrical circuit.

Other issues include faulty wiring or wiring that small critters may have chewed up.

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, you must contact an electrician immediately and turn off any breakers for that room.

Switches and Outlets Are Discolored

Discoloration of switches and outlets is a sign of short-circuiting.

Short circuits can be caused by the following:

  • Loose connections
  • Aging and outdated wiring
  • Faulty outlets
  • Faulty appliance wiring

Circuit Breaker Trips Frequently

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

Sometimes, the breaker trips when certain electrical appliances are too big for your breaker. But with the help of our trained team, we can run additional electrical circuits 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 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 home, assess your wiring, and tell you if there are any concerns. We’ll also estimate how much it will cost to repair them and schedule routine checkups so you never have to worry about your appliances and electrical systems going unnoticed.

Home theaters are a great amenity and can provide families with a perfect space to come together and enjoy each other’s company.

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.

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.
