Furnace Installation: Don’t Do it Yourself| Olympia Fields, Richton Park

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

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.

Problems with “Do it Yourself” Furnace Replacement

Installing a furnace is a very tedious and involved task. It takes our technicians at Four Seasons months just to learn the basics of installation, and they then receive countless hours of hands-on training before they ever step foot in the field. We take such care in preparing our technicians because installing a furnace properly is not easy. When a homeowner attempts to complete the project on their own, these are some of the problems we find: (more…)

A Fire Prevention Reminder for Chicago, Bridgeview, and Oak Park

Monday, October 27th, 2014

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. (more…)

Whole House vs. Portable Air Purifiers| Homer Glen, Glen Ellyn

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Having good indoor air quality is important. I think we can all agree on that, but what type of system we use to achieve good indoor air quality is we some of us may differ in opinion. When it comes to purchasing an air purifier for your home, you will have many decisions to make, but one of the first choices you will have to make is whether you want a whole house air purification system or a portable air purifier. Although portable units do have some advantages, here at Four Seasons we believe that whole house systems are your best choice when you want to clean the air in your entire home.

The BIG Problem with Portable Systems

If you or someone living in your home has allergies or asthma, the air purifier is crucial to their comfort. The biggest problem that exists with portable units is that they can only cover a small area of space. Unless you buy multiple systems and place them in every room of the home, you could be limiting the areas in the home where people with this problem can be comfortable. (more…)
