Boston Standard has been able and equipped to evaluate and diagnose issues with a complicated heating/cooling system in an old Boston home. Scott prepared and took time to describe work quotes that were easy to understand and included options at various price points. Haley proactively scheduled the work and quickly and professionally responded to questions. Installation specialist, Kyle, was always punctual and took ownership of his high-quality work during both diagnosis and repair. I look forward to working with Boston Standard in the future.

We have used Boston Standard Company for all our heating, AC and plumbing for several years now. As a retired general contractor doing residential renovations for 40 years, I would say they deserve 5 stars. Everyone who has come to our home and all the office staff have been, professional, kind and knowledgeable.

I called Boston Standard Co a few weeks ago in the morning for home heating problem. They were able to send me technicians over my house in few hours. The technician Klajdi explained to me what he was going to do and how he was going to fix the problem. He acted very professionally and got my heating system up and running again.

We hired New England Ductless through the Solarize Plus program here in Salem. They installed a three unit Mitsubishi mini-split heating system along with a Rheem hybrid (heat pump/electric hot water heater). Ronaldo and Alex as well as the plumbers and electricians who came did an excellent job, were very clean, wearing booties whenever they came inside and were very efficient, finishing in just three days.

Common Heating Service Questions

You have questions about heating service. We have answers.

How often should you service your gas heater?

You should service your gas furnace at least once a year. It’s best to service your furnace before the start of the heating season. Your HVAC technician will inspect and clean the parts that can fail during peak use in the winter. These include the air filter, pilot light, fan, and heat exchanger. Learn more about our furnace maintenance service.

How often should central heating be serviced?

Common central heating systems like boilers and gas furnaces should be serviced at least once a year. Annual service can help catch issues like failing parts and carbon monoxide leaks before they become sudden, unexpected problems for you. Regular heating maintenance can prolong the life of your heating equipment. This can help save you money in the long run. Learn more about our heating maintenance services.

Should I convert from oil to gas heating?

Yes, you should convert from oil to gas heating if…

• You want to save money on your utility bill.
• You’re sick of complicated and expensive maintenance.
• You’d like to stop worrying about running out of heating fuel on frigid Boston nights.

How much does a central heating service cost?

The cost of central heating service can depend on the type of system you have and the problem. For example, repairing your boiler costs $373, on average. The average cost to repair your furnace is $297. If you have a gas furnace, repairing it could cost more: between $375 and $1,200.

How much does it cost to service a heat pump?

Servicing your heat pump could run you $150 to $400 for annual heat pump maintenance and an average of $360 for repairs. The price of repairs can range from as little as $250 to as much as $3,000 with parts and labor.

Are heating service plans worth it?

Heating service plans can be worth it because they can save you money and time. Some heating service contracts offer a discount on maintenance and repairs. And perks like priority scheduling. Plus, your heating system needs to be serviced at least once a year, so why not plan on it?

Heating service plans can have many benefits:

• Prevent sudden breakdowns in the dead of winter.
• Improve the energy efficiency of your equipment.
• Spot deadly carbon monoxide leaks.
• Keep you compliant with the terms of your system warranty.

Service plans can be a win-win decision.

How much does emergency service cost for heating repair?

HVAC contractors’ rates for emergency heating repair service can vary from $350 to $1,875 an hour.
