Energy Efficiency For Earth Day

Who's ready for Earthdayt this year? April 22nd 2018 


Earth Day is a day recognized worldwide for nearly 48 years after millions of people took the streets to protest the negative effects that 150 years of industrial development had on the planet. Since, Earth Day Network’s mission is to “diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide” and has brought the environmental issues onto the world stage with over 200 million active people in 141 counties taking part.


Four Seasons prides itself in offering energy-efficient outdoor living solutions. From Insulated Patio Covers housing Expanded Polystyrene Foam (EPS) insulation, to our environmentally-friendly yet highly technological LifeRoom and of course our Energy efficient windows that allow you to reduce your heating bills and give back to Mother Nature. It's great to be an industry leader that not only fits your budget, but lowers your carbon footprint!
Expanded Polystyrene Foam (EPS) is an ideal choice in green building designs; it substantially reduces greenhouse gas emissions when utilized as insulation. According to epsindustry.org, “EPS insulation can return up to 200 times the amount of energy required to produce it, and reduce emissions by up to 100 times the volume produced during the manufacturing process.”

LifeRoom uses less energy than a waffle iron. From remote-controlled screens, soothing blue LED mood lighting, and SoftBreeze/CoolMist technology, LifeRoom creates an outdoor oasis that allows you to enjoy everything you love about being outdoors with all the comforts of being indoors. The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of today’s most energy-efficient lighting option. According to energy.gov, “LEDs…use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.” Widespread usage of LED lighting can generate a total savings of more than $30 billion within the United States alone!
Evaporative cooling is the reduction in temperature resulting from the natural evaporation of a liquid which removes latent heat from an environment, a process that is 75% more energy-efficient than conventional air conditioners. This cooling process is based completely on natural processes which is far safer for the environment, since no foreign chemicals are being released to cool down a particular area.

July Celebrations Outdoors: Summer Entertaining Made Easy

Summer is finally here; a season to be carefree, laid-back, and relaxed, right? If you frequently entertain during the summer months, you may be thinking this time is anything but relaxing! After all, planning parties and hosting events for friends and family is no easy feat. If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations. The bes…
