It’s Not Too Late! | Downers Grove, Carol Stream, Flossmoor

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

As the days continue to get shorter, the temperatures will continue to plummet. Hopefully you haven’t waited this long to have the furnace inspected, but if you have, now is the time to get your furnace back on track! Neglecting the furnace will not only cost you more on your monthly energy bills, it will also put you at risk of inconvenient breakdowns. If you are starting up your furnace for the first time, trust your senses to tell you if something is wrong, and call Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning if you suspect a problem. An affordable yearly tune-up may be all your furnace needs, but ignoring the problem could cost so much more.

Use Your Senses:

  • Smell: A common complaint among homeowners is a burning smell from the furnace when they first start the unit up. You may have dismissed this smell in the past, but it isn’t something you should continue to ignore. The burning smell is a clear indicator that there is a buildup of dirt, dust, and debris in the system.
  • Sight: If you have a burning smell in the home, it is important that you actually go down to the furnace and check for signs of fire or smoke. If there is smoke coming from the system, you must shut it down immediately and call Four Seasons. (more…)

Register Regrets: 4 Mistakes You May be Making| Dolton, Oak Park

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

1. Placing Furniture Too Close to Registers: Your forced air furnace uses a system of ducts to move air around your home. Supply registers deliver heat to the rooms, and return registers bring cool air back to the furnace for heating. When a couch, drapery, chair, or any other piece of furniture blocks a register, that room will not receive adequate heating. Give each register some breathing room. Take a quick look around your home. You may be surprised by how many times you make this mistake.

2. Closing Only the Supply Register: A lot of bad advice has been floating around in the HVAC industry about closing off registers in unused rooms in order to save money. Unfortunately, many people are taking this advice without ever consulting a professional. As a result, several mistakes have been made that may end up drastically increasing energy bills rather than reducing them. The first mistake is made when the homeowner only closes the supply register and neglects to close the return register as well. (more…)

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Here’s a few quick tips on possible Spring AC problems. In this tough economy the last thing you need is an air conditioner repair when you try and turn it on for the first time this spring.  There are two quick and simple possibilities for why your air conditioner may not be quite right the first time around this year.

1.       Possible tripped breaker – One of the most common causes of no-cool calls is a tripped breaker.  Be sure to reset your breaker before making a call for heating & cooling repairs.  Hopefully it won’t trip again, but if it does then it’s time to make a call.  At that point something is causing the breaker to trip and still it is often something simple like a bad breaker, loose wire, or a bad capacitor.  However, if not addressed, some simple problems can lead to far more expensive repairs.
