Do you feel like your home is on a temperature roller coaster? One minute the house is way to hot and the next it is icy cold. The problem most likely isn’t the furnace or the air conditioner. Odds are the thermostat is the source of your discomfort and for some a simple adjustment is all that is needed to restore balance to the temperature levels within the home. Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning will get to the bottom of your temperature conundrum and restore comfort to your home in just one visit from a Four Seasons Home Comfort Specialist!
If the temperature swing in your home is caused by the thermostat the problem can usually be solved by adjusting the differential. The differential is a setting that allows the temperature to vary between one and three degrees in either direction of the temperature you have set. For example, you set the thermostat at 70 degrees. So you would expect the furnace to kick on when the temperature drops below 70 and turn off when the temperature once again hits 70 degrees. Read the rest of this entry »

Chicago is known for our heavy intense winters, but this year has been a different story. We have had very few days where temperatures were significantly lower than 30 degrees, and all of this made for the perfect winter to own a heat pump. Heat pumps, like the Mitsubishi Electric from Four Seasons, offer energy efficient heating and cooling all in one system. Homeowners often use these systems as an energy efficient backup system when the weather isn’t as intense. This mild winter has given these people massive savings, and you can take advantage of these same benefits with the help of Four Seasons.
How a Heat Pump Works to Save You Money
Heat pumps pull heat from the air outside during the winter and remove heat from the air inside during the summer. The hot or cold air is then pumped into the rooms of your home through wall mounted units. This is a very energy efficient and green friendly way to cheaply heat and cool your home. When the temperature plummets you can use your old traditional heating unit to keep your home comfortable. Heat pumps of the past were not as capable of keeping our homes in this northern climate comfortable. The Mitsubishi Electric heat pump mini split system has overcome many of these limitations and can offer you true comfort and real savings all year round.

In this weird time between major seasons, homeowners begin to look towards the future and consider what repair need to be done. For many homes, caulking and weather-stripping the windows is no longer enough to keep out the rain, snow, and icy cold. When you finally come to accept this fact, window replacement becomes the only viable option. Spring is sure to be a wet one this year, and unless you want to lay out buckets and towels under your windows every time it rains, now is the time to call Four Seasons. The Four Seasons Window Collection has something for anyone and our outstanding customer service ethic guarantees results that you will love.

- Can I afford it?- Affording new windows is easier than ever with a little help from the Four Seasons financing department. 0% interest financing through 2017 means that the price we quote is the price you will ultimately pay five years down the line!
