There are thousands of heating and cooling companies in the Chicagoland area alone and among those thousands there are many illegitimate contractors that give the industry a bad name. As a heating and cooling company in this area, Four Seasons has to constantly be looking for ways to be better in order to dispel the many misconceptions that homeowners have about heating and cooling services.

Air Filtration and Protecting Your Air Conditioner | Evanston, Elgin

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

For some reason, every summer, countless homeowners stop replacing the air filter. The filter for the HVAC system is located by the furnace and though the heating system is not used during the summer, the circulating fan is still used to circulate air for that air conditioner. This means that the air will still pass through the same air filter used during the winter. Failing to replace this filter or running the air conditioner without a filter in place will have devastating consequences for your air conditioner’s energy efficiency and reliability as well as the air quality within the home. If this sounds like something your air conditioner has been experiencing, Four Seasons can help you put things right once more and get your air conditioner back on track.

Consequences of Failing to Maintain Air Quality:

  • Clogged Filter: Leaving the same filter in the system for months on end will result in a clogged air filter. A clogged filter will prevent adequate airflow within the system and diminish energy efficiency. Eventually, the air conditioner will turn off to protect itself from damage. It is at this point that many homeowners remove the filter and fail to replace it immediately. (more…)

Air Conditioner Maintenance Scam | Plainfield, Woodridge, Elgin

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

Cleaning and maintaining the air conditioner is an important part of your home’s yearly maintenance checks. Having the system properly cleaned does wonders for its longevity, efficiency, and reliability, and neglecting your air conditioner can lead to costly breakdowns. However, the state of the economy has many of us pinching our pennies and getting the best deal possible on services like your air conditioner maintenance is more important than ever before. While searching for coupons and discounts, it is still important to choose a legitimate contractor for your air conditioning maintenance services. There is a scam out there that preys on bargain hunters and unless you know what to look for, you could find yourself falling for this “too good to be true” scam.

Price Cutting Coupons

Right now there are illegitimate heating and cooling companies generating and sending out hundreds of maintenance coupons. These coupons offer prices as low as $20 for a full air conditioning maintenance check and tune-up. Before you call up the company and schedule the service, ask yourself, is this too good to be true? The answer is most likely yes, and this is why. The cost of having a serviceman drive to your home and spend at least an hour performing a skilled service costs the company a lot more than $20 to do. This would not even cover the cost of paying the technician let alone the cost of gas! The company would not pull a profit from selling this service at such a low cost. (more…)
