The next time you go out to get the mail or come in from a long days work, take a moment to look at your home from the curb. Do you like what you see, or are there parts of your landscape and home that could use a little pick me up? Having a home with curb appeal not only looks great to the neighbors and when you have guests over, but it also will add value to the home when it does come time to sell. In this market especially, it is important to make your home as attractive as possible to potential buyers, and where better to start than the front yard! Four Seasons Home Services can handle any job you may need performed to get your home back in shape, and we can get the work done before the storms of winter arrive!
Exterior Home Improvements and Repairs

Have Four Seasons help you highlight this focal point of the home with a door replacement, decorative glass inlays, or a fresh coat of paint. You will be amazed by the difference this simple improvement can make.
- Window Replacement: Wood rot begins on the exterior of the home and works its way in. If your old wood framed windows are rotting out, it is hurting your homes appearance and energy efficiency.

What are the most important aspects you look for in your heating and cooling company? For most, all they want is a company that offers a good product, has fast service, and probably most importantly has affordable pricing. You would think that these things are pretty basic, but most companies may offer only a couple of these features. At Four Seasons we strive to be everything you are looking for and then some. Where other companies may leave you out in the cold, we are constantly changing and improving the way we service our customers so that we are able to meet their needs.
Any company that lacks in one of these three areas is truly lacking a lot. A company that offers a good product and fast service but that offers their services at staggering prices is leaving out a very important component that many homeowners need right now. Yes they need reliable heating services, but if you can’t afford them, how are you ever going to benefit from their fast service or impressive products? You simply can’t.

Looking for an affordable energy efficiency upgrade this fall? Many homes suffer with old heating systems that gobble up energy like there is no tomorrow, but replacing these old units is not always in the budget, especially with the holiday season on the horizon. However, many of us can’t afford to keep spending so much on our energy bills every month, and we need a more affordable solution. Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning recognized this need, and that is why we offer affordable insulation services to homeowners across the Chicagoland area. The energy efficiency boost you will get from having this service performed could be just what your budget needs this winter.
From R-Value Minimum to Maximum
An attic with inadequate insulation is usually the problem. Chicago and the surrounding areas fall within an area of the country that requires insulation with an R-value between 38 and 60. Many of us are probably way below this level, and you could check for yourself. Simply take a meter stick or other measuring devise and travel up to your attic. Measure the depth of the insulation, and if it is below 14 inches, you insulation’s R-value is lower than the required minimum. This could be what causes the icicles to form on your roof and the temperature differences within the home during the chilly winters here in Chicago. If you find that your insulation level is lower than 14 inches, have Four Seasons perform a free assessment and give you a free estimate on blown-in insulation. Read the rest of this entry »
