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.

Protecting Your Outdoor Spaces During The Winter

Winter is here, which means that you should officially be checking off the outdoor winterizing that’s been on your to do list for months. Outdoor spaces can be a cherished secondary living space to us, especially given the level of time and money that we dedicate to the design and upkeep. When the spring comes, we often jump at the chance to set all of our outdoor items up, start planting, and restart lawn maintenance. But, when the leaves start falling and a chill hits the air, we long to hold on to those endless summer nights. For this reason, many people put off important maintenance required to preserve external assets. Striving to minimize damage to patios, decks, sunrooms and other outdoor objects should be at the top of your to do list during the fall each year. Preventative tasks will help prevent costly repairs or replacement. With a little bit of sweat equity or help from third parties that specialize in this process, you can assure that you are taking the appropria
