More Stages = More Comfort| Matteson, La Grange Park, Harvey

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Put yourself in this situation. It is the dead of winter in Chicago, and you are upstairs in the computer room of your home surfing the web, paying bills, and getting some shopping done. You feel a chill, and decide to go check the temperature on the thermostat downstairs in the living room. You normally set the thermostat at 76 degrees, and at this moment it is reading 77. There isn’t any heat coming out of the vents because the temperature hasn’t dropped low enough for the furnace to kick on. But, why is it so chilly upstairs? There isn’t a mechanical problem with the furnace; you have temperature swings.

What are Temperature Swings?

Temperature swings are common in homes that use forced air heating systems. They involve uncomfortable changes in temperature between floors and rooms in a home. This is usually caused by the way that typical single stage heating systems function. When the temperature read by the thermostat drops below what is set, the furnace will fire up at full capacity. Within a matter of minutes the temperature on the thermostat goes back up and the furnace shuts down. The problem is that these short blasts of hot air aren’t enough to heat areas of the home that are further away from the thermostat. You need a two-stage furnace! (more…)

Winter Woes: Furnace Air Flow| Vernon Hills, Burbank, Dolton

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

One of the biggest complaints that we hear about forced air furnaces is poor air flow. Many people will have one room or even an entire floor in the home that doesn’t receive adequate air flow. As a result, that area will have drastically different temperatures when compared to the rest of the home. This winter, you could either live with the problem or you could solve it.

You could crank up the heat and hope the extra output is enough to cover the affected area. This is a terrible option because it will lead to outrageously high energy bills, it will overheat areas with adequate air flow, and there is a good chance the extra heat will never actually reach the target room. Dealing with the air flow problem could also mean avoiding the cold room. However, if that room is a bedroom, chances are avoiding it isn’t an option. What you should do is call Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning because our servicemen are air flow specialists. We will track down the source of your air flow problem and will not rest until it has been solved. (more…)
