My heating system provides uneven heating, and my house ends up being cold. What can I do?
Older heating systems tend to provide just a short blast of heat before shutting off for a while. Consult with John Duffy Energy Services about getting a two-speed variable motor installed, which will provide you with more even and regular heating and a greater level of home comfort.
What should I do if my heating system isn’t working?
John Duffy Energy Services is always happy to send a technician to help ensure that your system is functioning the way it’s supposed to. However, you might be able to save time and money by first checking a few basic things. Make sure the temperature switch on your thermostat is turned to “heat,” and set above room temperature. Check to make sure your tank has fuel, and check for any circuit breaks or blown fuses.
Should I install a programmable thermostat?
Yes! Especially if you are away from home during the day, a programmable thermostat can ultimately save you as much as 10% on heating and cooling costs!
How much will an air conditioning or heating system cost?

Do I need to get tune-ups for my air conditioning system?
Air conditioners tend to have malfunctions and breakdowns on the hottest days of the year, but getting regular tune-ups will help prevent this and could catch problems before they get out of hand, ultimately saving you a lot of money.
What are the advantages of an oil-fired water heater?
An oil-fired water heater produces the hottest flame of any water heaters out there, which means your water heat up more quickly and efficiently. This, in turn, means you’ll save money and cut costs.
