Four Seasons Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing is the only HVAC and plumbing contractor in northern Illinois to ever win the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for ethics, officials say.

 “When it comes down to it, the core of our ethical policies is founded in compassion and responsibility,” David Musial, owner and CEO of Four Seasons. “A functional HVAC system is not a luxury. In the extremes of the Chicagoland climate, it simply can be dangerous to do without. We understand that our neighbors don’t just want our services, they need our help. It is our duty as professionals to use our skills to provide relief and aid for any family living without heating in the winter or cooling in the summer. But, the 2015 BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics doesn’t actually belong to me or Four Seasons. It belongs to each and every Four Seasons employee who brightens the lives of hundreds of thousands of customers and each other day in and day out. Our incredible employees are the ones really making a difference.”

 Nominees must submit examples of high ethical behavior and practices; marketing, communications and sales practices which reflect true representation of what the company offers; acknowledgement of ethical practices by industry peers and community members; management practices and policies; and training programs for employees.
