Highland Park, IL HVAC, Plumbing and Electric


Founded shortly after the end of the Civil War, Highland Park began its life as a quiet estate community favored by members of Chicago’s elite. The town’s scenic lakeside location made it a natural choice for vacationing city-dwellers, and its rolling fields provided ample pastureland for its nascent equestrian community. During the early part of the 20th century, Highland Park became known as a bedroom community for Chicago’s “movers and shakers.” Migration from Highland Park’s larger southern neighbor began in earnest with the construction of Lake Shore Drive, Interstate 94 and other local thoroughfares. As the town gained national prominence as a model suburban community, it attracted Hollywood’s attention. In the 1980s, it was featured as a prototypical upper-middle class town in films like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Risky Business.


Highland Park sits about 25 miles north of Chicago on the Lake Michigan shore. The town’s five-mile shoreline is a postcard-perfect mix of white-sand beaches, forested bluffs and handsome estates. Inland, the city’s physical landscape is defined by protected areas like Sunset Woods Park and low-density suburban developments that preserve much of the area’s natural tree cover. With world-renowned golf courses like Sunset Valley Golf Club and Northmoor Country Club, Highland Park has played host to a number of PGA Tour events over the years. Principal transportation arteries include the North Shore Metra commuter rail line and U.S. Highway 41.

Population and Demographics

For years, Highland Park has been growing at a slow but steady pace. The city now has about 30,000 permanent residents within its borders. While most of the town’s summer residences have been demolished or converted into full-time homes, it does have a significant snowbird population as well. Thanks to its excellent school system, Highland Park has a high proportion of families with school-age children. Many of the region’s heads of households commute to Chicago on a daily basis or travel to one of the nearby suburban business parks to conduct their business. As befits the general affluence of the town, many of these workers hold managerial or executive positions.

Things to Do in Highland Park, Illinois

Highland Park is a bustling, family-friendly community with more than its share of cultural attractions. The unique Art Center of Highland Park is a cooperative museum and interactive space that hosts regular exhibitions and permits resident artists to use its facilities. In the summer, the Ravinia Festival performance space welcomes the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for a series of open-air performances. The festival’s amphitheater also hosts regular jazz and pop performances throughout the year. Meanwhile, locals who love the outdoors can choose from several local parks like Sunset Woods Park, Moraine Park and Central Park.

Climate and Weather

Like the rest of the Chicagoland area, Highland Park sits within the humid continental climate zone. Although its winters are characterized by regular snowfall and cold temperatures, bright sunshine and frequent thaws serve to make outdoor activity enjoyable around the calendar. During the spring and fall, light showers or thunderstorms interrupt stretches of mild, low-humidity weather. Throughout the summer months, onshore breezes from the nearby lake keep the air comfortable and well-circulated. Although severe thunderstorms have been known to occur here, Highland Park lies quite far from the Midwest’s nexus of hail and tornado activity.

Had a pipe burst in our basement and water was leaking quickly. Called Black Diamond on a Sunday morning and had Juan come out within the hour to save the day. He quickly figured out the problem, fixed it and saved us hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on what could have been a worse situation had they not reacted quickly. Thanks Juan!
