The EPA, which is usually very slow and reluctant to recommend any services, except the ones which have been proven to be viable and beneficial, recommends inspecting and servicing fuel-burning furnaces before each heating season (www.epa.gov) to be sure that you are protected from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide can enter your home or facility any time you have a defect in your heat exchanger. A heat exchanger is the largest part of the furnace, usually made of aluminum or stainless steel, through which the poisonous carbon monoxide-containing exhaust fumes leave the furnace and are vented to the outside of your home. Heat exchangers, over time and/or as a result of a manufacturer’s defect, can have or develop penetrating scratches and holes. The result of these defects is simple: some of the carbon monoxide that was on its way out of the home will leak through these apertures and into your home or facility. (more…)
With winter quickly approaching, the long summer days spent outdoors will soon be gone. We will retreat indoors, crank up the heat, and hope that we stay warm until spring. The more time we spend indoors, the more important indoor air quality becomes. If there is someone in your home that has allergies or asthma, a poor indoor air environment can intensify their breathing problems. Even if you do not have these conditions, poor indoor air quality can increase your chances of getting a cold, having the flu, or experiencing other respiratory issues. So, what are you going to do about it? Have Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning install a Healthy Climate UV Germicidal Light in your home.
What is a Germicidal UV Light?
The light emitted by UV lights contains UV-C rays. These rays are able to change the DNA and RNA inside microorganisms like mold and bacteria. This change halts the microorganisms’ ability to grow and reproduce. This is what effectively kills off the contaminants in your indoor air. It is installed inside the duct work near the furnace. As the air passes through the furnace to be heated and then delivered through the home, it also passes through the UV light. This is what makes it possible for the UV light to come in contact with all of the air in the home. (more…)
The service technicians at Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning are able to handle a variety of issues. From boilers and furnaces to hot water tanks and air conditioners, our technicians are proficiently trained to handle nearly any situation your HVAC systems can throw at them. However, the expertise of our technicians is not needed in every situation. Hundreds of times a year, we have customers who call us out for problems that really aren’t problems at all. Flipping a switch and setting a thermostat are “repairs” that nearly any homeowner can handle on their own. We know that the people of Chicago work hard for their money, and that they don’t want to waste it on unnecessary service calls. So, the next time the furnace breaks down, there are a few point to check before racing to the phone to call Four Seasons. (more…)
