At 24 Hour Heating and Cooling News, we don’t often promote offers from heating and cooling companies, but sometimes a company has an offer that is just too great to pass up. Right now, homeowners in Chicago and Northwest Indiana have an opportunity to win a free furnace from the area’s leading heating and cooling contractor, Four Seasons Heating, Air Conditioning, and Plumbing.
Searching for the Oldest Furnace
The Four Seasons Prehistoric Furnace Contest is Four Seasons’ attempt to find the oldest furnace heating system still in operation within their service area, Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. Homeowners are encouraged to snap a photo of their ancient furnace and submit it to the contest along with information like the system’s make and model. From February 1st through April 15th, Four Seasons will collect entries, and on the 16th of April, they will announce the winner. Read more
Unfortunately, when it comes to improving the energy efficiency in the home, many homeowners take the wrong approach. They believe that because they cannot afford to make massive changes they shouldn’t bother to make changes at all. Needless to say this is not the best approach to take to improving energy efficiency.
You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on major projects like geothermal heating or solar panel installation to save money on your energy bills! There are alternatives, and adding insulation to the home is one of the most cost effective ways to lower your energy costs without spending an outrageous amount of cash up front! Check out this infographic from Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning for some impressive insulation statistics, and if you live in the Chicagoland area, give them a call to take advantage of the many benefits insulation has to offer.
The thick of winter in Chicago didn’t show up until January. For many of us the mild winter meant less use of the furnace and odds are the system really hadn’t been put to the test until the first big snowfall of this year. Now you may be faced with the need to replace that old furnace. For many this is their current predicament and they are kicking themselves for not acting sooner. The federal tax credits and rebates ran out at the end of 2011. Many homeowners have accepted the fact that they are going to have to pay full price, but wait a second! There are still substantial savings out there to be had, but you need to know where to look!
Two Ways to Save:
- Gas Company Rebates: The local gas companies in Chicago, Nicor and People’s Gas, are still offering rebates on high efficiency furnaces and air conditioners. Replacing both units can get you up to $800 in rebates, and even if you can only afford to replace the furnace, you could still get up to $200 back on your purchase. Every penny counts and the savings could be enough to make buying that high efficiency furnace worth it.
- Lennox Home Comfort Systems: If the furnace and air conditioner you plan to purchase are from Lennox Home Comfort Systems, you could stand to save even more! They are currently offering manufacturer rebates up to $1450! Read more
