When the furnace or boiler goes out in the dead of winter, you may be surprised by how fast the cold can creep in. Within hours the temperature inside the home will mirror the outdoors, and if you don’t act fast, you, your family, and your home may be at risk.

Four Seasons is aware of the potential dangers caused by drastically cold temperatures, and we have made it our goal to be there for our customers when they need us the most. Night and day Four Seasons is here to protect you from:
- Hazards to Your Health: Young children, the elderly, and those that are ill are more susceptible to health problems caused by the cold that those of us who are healthy adults. Hypothermia is just one of the complications that can be caused by freezing temperatures, and the only way to prevent these problems is by repairing the furnace to keep these people warm.
- Hazards to Your Safety: A heating system breakdown often forces people to turn to alternative methods to heat their homes. Space heaters need to be used with extreme caution according to the manufacturer’s regulations, and there is also a potential for carbon monoxide exposure if a combustion heater is not properly vented. Ovens are another heating alternative that many people turn to that can cause fire and carbon monoxide exposure.
- Hazards to Your Home’s Safety: Besides the fire hazard posed by alternative heating devices, frozen pipes are another major concern for homeowners to consider when the heat stops working. Frozen pipes can crack and burst spewing gallons of water into the home. The water damage can become astronomical if you don’t have a professional on hand to help you out.
- Loss of Comfort: Our homes are supposed to be our sanctuaries of safety and comfort, and when the heat is out both of these functions are diminished greatly. Luckily, you have Four Seasons on hand as your home comfort specialist.
