These days, incentives, rebates, and sales are very popular, and with the state of the economy, it seems like everyone is trying to offer consumers some sort of bonus for purchasing new products. The HVAC industry is no different. Here at Four Seasons, we have tracked down and created some of the best rebates, incentives, and sales that have ever been offered to buyers of new HVAC systems. This summer, your purchase of a new air conditioning system or furnace could virtually be paid off by taking advantage of these special offers while they are still available!
Incentives, Rebates, and Sales!
- Nicor Rebate: Nicor is a major supplier of natural gas to the city of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. In an effort to be more environmentally conscious, they are offering their customers a $400 rebate when they purchase a new high efficiency furnace rated 95% AFUE or more.

For many, the idea of converting your home to solar power seems unattainable and out of reach. In the past, this may have been true, but with each passing day, solar power becomes more and more realistic for homes all over the United States. Here in Chicago and the surrounding suburban areas, Four Seasons can help you get started! You may be confused as to how a heating and air conditioning company can help you go solar, but when you consider that your air conditioner consumes anywhere from 12 to 17% of the energy in your home, it starts to make a bit more sense.
Start Small and Add on Later
A solar system consists of a series of panels that are placed upon the roof of your home and hooked into your home’s electrical supply. The number of panels dictates the number of appliances that you can run the system off of. Many homeowners will begin by getting just enough panels to cover the air conditioner’s operation. During the daylight hours, the air conditioner will be powered by the energy created by the panels of the roof as they absorb the sun. When the air conditioner is not in use, the panels can power other appliances in the home. When your home creates its own energy, you pay less for energy provided by the big power companies! The more panels you have, the less you will pay every month on your energy bills! Read the rest of this entry »

Ever notice how most warranties don’t really cover much? In theory they seem to offer the protection that you need for your major investments, but when it comes time to actually take advantage of the benefits, it is nearly impossible to do so. Well, not with Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning! We are known for offering some of the best warranty coverage in town, and we don’t stop at just covering repairs. As always, we take it a couple steps further than you might expect from an HVAC company, and the feature of our warranties that we are talking about today is the 24 Hour Service Guarantee!
Coverage When You Need it the Most!
So, what is the 24 Hour Service Guarantee? You may already have heard that Four Seasons is a 24 hour service company, but that is a benefit we offer to every customer, whether or not the purchase a system from us. This guarantee is so much more! It basically states that if your warranty covered Four Seasons furnace or air conditioner breaks down and we cannot fix it within 24 hours, we will put you up in a hotel! Yes, you read that right! No matter what time of day you call, or how busy we may be, this aspect of your warranty is always in place during extreme emergencies. Read the rest of this entry »

I know it’s frustrating to have an air conditioner clean and check or service call canceled because of rain, and here at Four Seasons we hate having to do this to our customers. Believe me when I say I want to work. The problem is that we cannot get an accurate reading on the refrigerant charge in your air-conditioner during a down pour of rain. The pressure in the air is different during a rainstorm, and if we were to calibrate the unit during that time, it would not cool the home properly.
Unpredictable Weather Conditions
The other reason we don’t perform these services in the rain is due to the fact that we don’t want service techs getting electrocuted! Water and electricity don’t mix, and this is a bad situation for customers and service techs alike. We understand that many people have to adjust their lives to fit this service in, and we defiantly want to do the work for you. But, April and May have some fairly unpredictable weather. If a company tells you that they will still do these services in a downpour, you can know that they do not have your best interests in mind! All they are thinking about is the paycheck and they don’t really care if your unit works properly. Read the rest of this entry »
