What Type of Air Conditioning is Right for Your Home?

Over the years, home air conditioning has changed a great deal. Many homes now have some form of air conditioning system. Besides cooling, people have found that AC has many additional benefits, like keeping the air cleaner and keeping humidity levels lower. But, if your home wasn’t built to support an air conditioning system (homes that use radiator heat are an example), you might not be sure what options you have. The good news is, you don’t have to go tearing out walls and adding ductwork. There are some great ductless options available for homeowners, too.

Ductless air conditioning is made to work without adding additional ductwork, and because it often comes with a heating component, it can help your home stay comfortable year round. And, unlike window air conditioning units that can be clunky, loud and obstruct your view, ductless AC is made to perfectly complement your surroundings. Most units are slim, unobtrusive and blend seamlessly with any décor. What’s more, they’re quiet and energy efficient, so you can be cool and comfortable while saving on your energy bills. All Seasons offers top of the line ductless AC systems, and installs them quickly with minimal mess.

Of course, if you have ductwork in your home, central air conditioning may be the right choice for you. We are pleased to provide our customers with the best quality Carrier® air conditioning equipment on the market. We offer the best installation policies and practices, too, to ensure that you’re fully satisfied. Carrier offers an air-conditioning system that’s perfect for Long Island living, too – the Infinity® 17 Coastal. This model offers up to 17 SEER, meaning it’s highly efficient, and special features perfect for coastal living.

Symbolic Meanings of 5 of Your Favorite Spring Flowers

One of our favorite parts of the spring season is the bounty of flowers in bloom. The white winter landscape gives way to bright, cheerful colors dotting the scenery. Shades of pink, yellow, orange and red suddenly appear everywhere, and we can’t help but feel energized. We all have a favorite spring flower, but we might not actually know the symbolism behind it.
Here are five favorite spring flowers and their meanings:

Anemones: Anemones come in many different shapes and colors and their meanings are as varied. In Western culture, the anemone has come to symbolize both the rebirth of spring and mourning. In Eastern culture, though, the flower can mean bad luck, ill tidings and illness.

Dahlias: Dahlias are gorgeous pom-pom shaped flowers that come in numerous shades and range in intensity from peachy whites to deeply purple. Some have more rounded petals while other varieties have pointed ones. Classically, the dahlia symbolizes gratitude and dignity.

Gerber Daisies: As colorful as spring itself, the friendly-faced Gerber daisy mean purity, beauty and innocence. When you make them a part of your living space, they bring a cheerful, energizing feel to the room that everyone will enjoy.

Peonies: Ah, romance… that’s what the grandly beautiful peony symbolizes. They also can mean wealth, good fortune and royalty. Regardless of meaning, the pink and white flower’s large blooms make a bold statement when you add them to your bouquet.

Tulips: Tulips are a favorite spring flower of many, and symbolize love’s perfection. Depending on their color, they express love in different ways: yellow, the color of friendship; red, romance and white, pure love.

Of course, as beautiful as they may be, spring blooms may also bring along with them spring allergies! If you’re sneezing, […]

5 Ways We Can Help You With Your Spring Allergies

Ah, spring… that time of year when the earth wakes up from its long winter’s nap, and the trees start to bud and the flowers start to bloom. And, if you’re an allergy sufferer, it’s also the time of year when you have to deal with sniffling, sneezing and watery eyes! While we can’t do anything about the outdoor allergens that abound, we can help you keep your indoor air as healthy as possible.
Here are five products that can help keep indoor allergens to a minimum:

Air purifiers: The air inside your home is often circulated and re-circulated numerous times throughout the day. As a result, airborne pathogens are blown around and can cause problems for everyone, especially those with breathing or immune system concerns. Air purifiers help to remove pollutants like bacteria, pollen, animal dander and more – as small as 0.01 microns. That’s 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin!
Ultraviolet (UV) air purification: Our top-quality ultraviolet air purifier will eliminate both mold and bacteria, as well as kill organisms that can grow in your home’s air conditioning system. By choosing a UV air purifier from us, your home will have improved air health, and your comfort system will have increased performance.
Filtration: You might not know this, but one of the simplest ways you can keep your air cleaner and fresher, and help your comfort system last longer, is by regularly replacing your dirty air filters. Air filters trap pollutants, allergens and other microscopic particles that can make the air inside your home unhealthy.
Air cleaners: Installing an air cleaner is a great choice if you have someone in your home who is sensitive to odors, chemical vapors, cooking fumes and other airborne […]

Do YOU Need Better Indoor Air? These 5 Symptoms Can Help You Know.

Today, people spend more time in their homes than ever before. That means they spend a lot of time breathing the air in their home as well, and sometimes, that might not be a good thing. Modern homes are built to be much more airtight, and while that means they’re more energy efficient, it also means that there is less fresh air in the home. The air in the home is constantly circulated through your heating and cooling system – and if the indoor air quality is poor, you just keep breathing in the low-quality air.

There are a few telltale signs that you or your family might exhibit if the air in your home isn’t as good as it should be.
Here’s how to tell if you might have an indoor air quality issue:
Coughing: If you or a family member cough a lot at home, that could mean that there are particles in the air that are causing some sort of irritation. Allergens like dust, mold and mildew can blow around your HVAC system, and if left untreated, the air might make you suffer and cause irritation in your respiratory system.

Sneezing: Like coughing, sneezing, especially in your home, is a symptom you shouldn’t ignore. If you find you sneeze often at home, it’s likely that there’s something in your air that’s irritating you. Mold, mildew, bacteria, dust, pet dander and other allergens can all cause you to sneeze – and if they’re continuously circulated throughout your home, you’ll feel miserable.

More Frequent Asthma Concerns: If you suffer from asthma, you know how important it is to breathe quality air. If you notice an increase of your asthma symptoms, especially when you’re at home, there may be an […]

Once the holiday season is over and spring is on the horizon, a lot of people start to take a look at their homes… and quickly realize that they have too much stuff! Items accumulate over the holiday season, and the chilly weather might mean you’ve settled in for a long winter’s nap. It can be hard to find the motivation to weed through your belongings, especially when it’s cold outside and you’d rather just curl up on your couch with a good book or Netflix.

Here are some things you can do right away to reduce the clutter in your home – and the best part? They only take five minutes each!
Five-Minute Tips for Decluttering Your Home
Clear Your Counters: Our countertops in our home quickly become collection sites for a lot of our clutter. Papers, infrequently used appliances, knickknacks that gather dust – you name it, countertops collect it. Use your five minute time period to clear a countertop. Give away anything on the countertop that you don’t use or don’t need, and put away infrequently used items in cupboards.

Create a Paper Space: Papers can become the major source of clutter in any home, so it’s important to have a designated place that your papers go in. Designate a tray or drawer where all the papers in your home go, and sort through them […]
