Awesome service!

So grateful for the and efficient service and on a SATURDAY! What started out as a stressful day, with no heat....Kelsey at the office assured me she would get a serviceman out and she did! Alan came out and fixed our furnace with no problem. Definitely will use Button and Sons in the future.

Finally. Someone who could fix my heating problem

Service tech figured out why I was not getting any heat in bathroom(boiler system). Tech also took his time to figure out the easiest fix to move a thermostat to another wall(block/plater walls). Original thermostat wire damaged over time behind a block wall. Very satisfied. And, the tech was very polite.

Tech's Alan and Chris were absolutely wonderful! The response time was quick and the service was thorough. They took the time to explain the work that was to be performed, answered all of my questions, and kept me informed throughout the whole process.

Always A Pleasure!

I contacted Burton & Sons about my furnace at about 7:30AM and had a new furnace installed by 4:30PM the very same day! Alan H. even stayed after that to walk me through my new thermostat and helped me to set my own heat preferences to ensure I'd be saving money by saving energy during the hours I'm not at home. Thank you, Alan!

Furnace repair

The repairman that serviced my furnace (Al) was very professional. He showed up on time and reconfirmed the initial diagnosis that was done by emergency crew before replacing the failed part. He was very open in informing me of the issue and got the repair done quickly. He left the area clean after the repair too. Thanks much.

Excellent Service

I have been using Burton and Sons for all of my plumbing and heating/cooling problems for over 30 years. I have always appreciated how thorough, courteous, and professional Alan has been. On this visit, he turned up my furnace, got the heat working, offered advice, saved me money, and thoroughly explained what he did and why. I really appreciated the service he provided and would recommend this company to others. I also like how quickly my request was responded to.

Amazingly knowledgeable service tech

My service tech was very knowledgeable, very patient and took time to explain the problems. My main concern Was heat and water and he provided them in a quick manner. I look forward to working with him again

Great service

Alan arrived at our home at the agreed upon time. He was pleasant and respectful of our home, it was raining and he wore the shoe coverings in our home. He quickly identified the problem with our toilet and explained what he needed to do and the cost involved. He didn't have the part on his truck, but went to get it and returned in a timely fashion. He replaced the part in both toilets and left everything immaculate. We love Burton and Sons and the great service we got from Alan. We use you for all our plumbing needs and are happy to refer you to our friends and family.

Excellent service call.

Service tech Alan was here to find the problem with my furnace not cycling. After reviewing the problem he ran through the diagnostic routine, checking circuits and filters. The problem was isolated and a service performed. The furnace was restarted and immediately came on. While waiting for a couple of cycles to be completed Alan did a couple of other service checks to be sure everything was covered. Hours later the the indicator light is still glowing steady. Thanks for the timely, fair and priced right service.

Very Satisfied!

I was extremely satisfied with the entire process from making the appointment to the service itself. Alan kept me informed throughout and explained things in terms that I could understand. I would be completely comfortable recommending Burton and Sons to a friend if my experience with Alan is any indication of the service they can expect from them.

We have been using Burton for many years and have dealt with many technicians. All have been professional and knowledgeable. We have found the company to be very customer focused.

Excellent service, really knows his stuff and extremely customer friendly.

If I have my way, no one else will ever work on our furnace. Alan is very friendly and knowledgeable and quite passionate about his work. He takes all the time we need to make sure we understand what the problem is, and what it takes to fix it so we feel comfortable about the money being spent to take care of the problem and leaves us very confident knowing the problem is taken care of safely and efficiently. He goes way above and beyond the call of duty and does his best to keep things cost effective. He is the ultimate definition of EXCELLENT Customer Service and should be used as an example for all service reps.

Emergency need for a new furnace Friday afternoon before Christmas. Amazingly Alan had the new furnace up and running within 5 hours of my first call to Burton and Sons. I was blown away by his level of service, dedication, and sense of urgency!


Great value with the service.

Very pleased

Our furnace stopped heating, so we called Family Heating and were told the next appointment would be for a week later. So we call Burton and a technician arrived about an hour later. He quickly diagnosed the problem, told us what was needed and the cost for the parts and labor. We agreed with the price and he had the furnace running again in a couple of hours. He was courteous and friendly, and took the time to explain what the broken parts were, and how they worked as well as other information about maintenance.
