When the furnace or air conditioner breaks down, it can feel like you are at the mercy of the serviceman when the repair work is being performed. Many of us don’t know much about our heating and cooling systems, and frankly we are lucky if we are able to figure out how to replace the filter every month. It is because of this lack of understanding that we blindly hand over our hard earned money to HVAC contractors every time there is a problem with the unit without actually understanding what went wrong in the first place. Words like “blower motor” and “spark valve” mean little to someone who has no knowledge of how HVAC systems work. Read the rest of this entry »
In these hard times, many homeowners are pinching pennies and tightening their belts more than ever before. Making major purchases is the last challenge that anyone in this economy wants to face, but there are certain things that we just cannot live without. In Chicago, replacing the furnace is one of those major purchases that we all try to avoid. Some homeowners even attempt to replace the unit on their own, but unless they have years of experience installing furnace systems, this could lead to disaster. There are some jobs around the home that are perfect for the “do it yourself-er,” but there are certain projects that should be left the professionals. Make Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning your go-to guys when it comes time to replace that old furnace. We know you won’t regret it.

With the recent fire related tragedies that have occurred in Chicago, we felt that now was a good time to remind the residents of this great city about fire prevention when using their heating systems. Space heaters, stoves, fireplaces, and central heating systems all have the potential to cause house fires, and these heating systems have consistently ranked among the top causes of house fires. However, heating fires are not something that you ever have to experience in your home!
Frugal Heating this Winter
Every winter, thousands of homes rely on systems other than the central furnace or boiler to heat their homes, and unfortunately, many do so without taking the necessary precautions. When using a fireplace, space heater, or stove, you should keep these tips in mind:
- Fireplace: Using the fireplace to heat the home won’t necessarily save you money when compared to using the furnace or boiler. But if you are going to use the fireplace at all, do not use to get the fire going, don’t leave the fire unattended, and always close the fire screen when the fire is lit. Also, if you have a wood burning fireplace, never burn garbage, newspaper, or plastic in the fireplace. Read the rest of this entry »
