Prepare Heating Units This Fall Before It Gets Cold

Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, rated as an A+ company by the BBB, gives insight to homeowners on why it’s important to schedule a maintenance tune-up on heating units in the fall

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – Sept. 13, 2017 – Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, a full-service residential plumbing, heating, and air conditioning company, is encouraging homeowners to prepare for winter this fall by scheduling a routine maintenance appointment.

A total breakdown isn’t the only sign of a heating problem. Most heat 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.

“Winter is always a busy time for us because homeowners don’t realize why they should schedule routine maintenance before it gets cold,” said Mike Nicholson, owner of Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. “We want to help our customers be proactive in their preparation for winter. By preparing now for the inevitable cold of winter, we can help them with the long-term care of their home.”

According to Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, you will see the following benefits from an annual heating system tune-up:

  • Increase Efficiency: Making sure all parts of a heating unit are functioning to full potential will save on the amount of energy being expended. In turn, this will cut down on heating costs to save money.
  • Avoid Big Problems: 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.
  • Ensure Warranty: Tuning a heating system can prevent many winter problems by ensuring proper and effective usage thus keeping the warranty viable. Heater and boiler manufacturers often require routine maintenance in order to keep the guarantee of their warranty. Neglect to do so can lead to expensive repairs down the road.
  • Prolong Equipment Life: Scheduled maintenance will assure 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.

Nicholson employs highly trained service experts who pledge to provide the highest quality service, guaranteed. Nicholson employees are up to date with the latest in energy efficient technology to provide eco-friendly products that will reduce overall cost. If you’re having trouble determining which heating system is best for your home, Nicholson technicians will guide you step-by-step through the process to be sure you’re getting the right fit.

  • 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!
