Massachusetts winters can be brutal, but homeowners in the greater MetroWest area still have a chance to prepare for cold weather. Annually adjusting and cleaning your heating system will maintain its efficiency and can save you money on utility bills.
Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning offers heating system inspections and tune-ups to make sure the system is running at peak capacity in order to avoid wasting energy and to keep your utility bills at minimum. Regular maintenance also helps spot small problems before they turn into catastrophes.
Going through an annual tune-up gives a professional technician time to survey the equipment and find any potentially damaging problems. If left untreated, these problems can become big expenses in the future.
Just because your heating system is working doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem. Breakdowns can happen gradually as systems fail without proper attention. Most heating system failure scenarios can be prevented. Unusual sounds or smells, uneven heating, inefficient heating, or even a sudden spike in the energy bill can mean a problem is occurring within the heating system.
Neglect can leave you with expensive repairs down the road that are not covered by your warranty. Heater and boiler manufacturers can require routine maintenance as a condition of warranty coverage.
Scheduled maintenance ensures all parts of the equipment are working according to their factory settings. Skilled technicians can perform a filter, wire and blower check to help prolong the lifespan of the heating unit.
After a thorough inspection, Nicholson’s expert technicians can also advise homeowners if it might make more sense to replace an old, outdated boiler than continuing to throw away money during cold weather. According to U.S. Department of Energy, older heating systems just can’t compete when it comes to energy efficiency:
Although older furnace and boiler systems had efficiencies in the range of 56 percent to 70 percent, modern conventional heating systems can achieve efficiencies as high as 98.5 percent, converting nearly all the fuel to useful heat for your home. Energy efficiency upgrades and a new high-efficiency heating system can often cut your fuel bills.

Francis from Nicholson Plumbing and Heating was excellent. He was here to evaluate HVAC in our home. He was very patient and answered all my questions. He is also polite and easy to communicate with him. He explained technical concepts to me in layperson terms!

Nicholson offered what is possibly the best customer service I have dealt with in a home repair situation. I called them because I was looking to replace my very old furnace. They came out to do an initial estimate, and then came back when I had some further questions about my options. After installing the furnace, they ran into some problems with my air ducts. This happened on a Friday, and the problem was fixed by Monday afternoon. In addition to their excellent service, they did quality work at a fair price. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an HVAC company in the Framingham area!

Recently used these guys because my HVAC unit AC wasn’t working (first hot day of summer). Showed up on time, wore booties, fixed the unit. During the visit we talked about how my unit was having problems in the winter – which was resulting in NSTAR service calls of maybe 3-4 times per season (I am on a service plan with them). He was the first guy to tell me WHY the problem was happening, and HOW to fix it. I find it strange that all of the NSTAR guys etc. no one took time to point out how to fix the source of the problem…Very professional, smart. I would use them again, and plan to for the fix on my heating unit!
