Cherry Valley, IL

Cherry Valley, IL Heating, Air Conditioning, Plumbing and Electric



Although the area that would become Cherry Valley has been inhabited by Native American tribes since prehistoric times, there’s no record of Europeans settling here prior to the 1830s. During that decade, the first homesteaders arrived from the eastern United States. Since many of the new arrivals came from upstate New York, it was eventually decided that the town would take its name from Cherry Valley, New York. During the early 20th century, Cherry Valley became an important satellite for the burgeoning city of Rockford. These days, it’s a prosperous suburb with close ties to Rockford and Chicago.


Cherry Valley is located in north-central Illinois’s Winnebago County. It’s situated just to the south of the larger city of Rockford and boasts tight transportation ties to surrounding communities. Chicago proper is about 90 miles to the southeast. Although most of Cherry Valley is residential, there’s a shopping corridor with an important regional mall near Interstate 90. The undeveloped lands on the city’s eastern and southern outskirts consist of oak savanna and gently rolling farmland. Major thoroughfares in the Cherry Valley area include Interstates 90 and 39 as well as U.S. Highway 20.

Population and Demographics

According to the most recent Census figures, Cherry Valley has a year-round population of about 3,000. This figure has increased markedly since the 1990s and now sits at its highest level in living memory. Most Cherry Valley residents work in white-collar positions in nearby Rockford. However, it’s increasingly common for locals to seek higher-paying positions at major firms headquartered on the outer edge of Chicago’s suburbs. Cherry Valley is particularly popular with younger families who value its high-performing school system, safe streets and impressive network of parks.

Things to Do in Cherry Valley, Illinois

Cherry Valley is a popular destination for tourists and area residents alike. The city is home to the Magic Waters water park, one of the largest of its kind in Illinois. Shoppers enjoy access to Cherryvale Mall, the area’s first enclosed shopping mall. Valley Orchard is a popular autumn destination for families with small children. During August, Cherry Valley Festival Days draws thousands of folks from surrounding communities for several days of festivities. Deer Run Forest Preserve is popular with hikers and bird-watchers.

Climate and Weather

Like the rest of northern Illinois, Cherry Valley has a continental climate that’s marked by warm, humid summers and cold, often snowy winters. The region’s growing season typically stretches from early April until mid-November and permits the cultivation of a wide range of crops and flowering plants. Although thunderstorms are common during the warm months, tornadoes and large hail are relatively rare. Meanwhile, winter can bring subzero temperatures and heavy snowstorms. Although spring and fall are largely pleasant seasons, sharp temperature swings can complicate outdoor activity.

Carole-Anne - Cherry Valley, IL
I had a lose furnace vent cap on my roof. Piece of sheet metal that costs about $30. I don't do roofs as I'm in my 50s, have a bum knee and having shoulder surgery in two weeks. Called Axberg. Young technician came to door, looked up at vent and immediately said $450. I was floored. He stated it was $395 just to get on the roof. I then stated I had a minute to make up my mind or he was leaving and I would be charged $79 for the call-out. I knocked him down to $425. It took him 10 minutes to make the switch and 1 hour total with going to get the part. I called Axberg to complain the next day. Three days later they conceded the charge was a "bit" high and I was refunded $100. That still meant I was charged $325. There was never a $395 fee for getting on the roof so shame on that technician for gender discrimination, and Axberg you are charging about $295 / hr.

Technicians were professional, informative and responsive. The Payne A/C and Bryant Coil were installed next day by two Techs. The quality of the installation was excellent and the work area was clean after completion.
Paulette - Cherry Valley, IL
Having the Crystal Club membership is great. Axberg comes annually in the Spring and Fall to inspect our air conditioner and furnace. This gives us the peace that all is well with each unit for that season. And the price isn't bad, either. Good job!
