Furnace Maintenance Benefits
Energy efficiency – A dirty furnace has to work harder, thus leading to higher energy bills. In order to produce the same amount of heat it would if it were clean, it will have to run longer.
Safety – If your furnace is not properly maintained, many serious problems can result. If soot is allowed to accumulate, it can spread through your home’s vents and lead to respiratory problems.Faulty wiring in an electric unit can result in a fire.
Repair expenses – Failing to have maintenance performed regularly can lead to minor problems becoming serious, leading to costly repairs.Spending a little money now to address small problems rather than spend a lot more to fix major problems later.

Had an excellent experience with Climate King. Called Nate Sunday morning at 9:30 before the Bills Patriots game on October 30th with my furnace down. He answered right away. It was so nice getting a person on a weekend!! He was out to our house by 1030. We had an older furnace and he gave us four separate options from a simple repair to a new purchase. No pressure, just information. We elected to purchase a new unit and he was here a day later, on time, and did an excellent job. He explained everything, cleaned up and gave us a very fair price. I'd definitely recommend them to you. I love the new furnace.

Highly recommend this company. They saved me from buying a new boiler. I had a previous company come out .They were unable to fix problem so they told me my boiler needed replaced. That’s when I called climate king the owner Nate came out and fix difficult wiring problem and cleaned my boiler. Very impressed with this company. I’ll be using this company and tell all my friends. Thank you

Happy with their service. I highly recommend this company to others. My baseboard heating system had abnormal high pressure and there were several baseboards that didn't warm at all. We spent a lot of money having another company try to fix the problem before Climate King. However the problem hadn't been solved. Then I contacted Climate King and Nate came over and found the problem and resolved it. He fixed it in a professional way, and explained how this problem occurred. I'm very pleased with this company's ability and experience.

Made a call early Saturday morning around 7:30, with no expectation of someone picking up the phone...but to my surprise, Nate answered the call and was very helpful and immediately had Josh come out to fix the issue. He obviously sensed the urgency of this matter, knowing that it was cold outside, and I had an infant in the house. After reviewing average rates for service and parts, Nate is on par with costs, if not a little better. You pay for what you get! Quality quality quality!
Additionally, they are honest and offer their professional advice on proactive options.

After being out most of the day we noticed our furnace was not working at 9:30 on a Sunday night. Nate and Josh showed up the next morning to look at our VERY old furnace. After diagnosing the problem they wrote up an estimate and explained their service program to me. Not only did they not try to sell me on a new furnace, they explained the benefits of yearly maintenance to keep my furnace working for as long as possible. I enrolled in their service program which will provide an annual service of my furnace and discounts on anything additional which may be needed. There was no pressure and they were very professional. I would recommend them to anyone!

We began by having Nate come out for a furnace and A/C inspection since we had recently moved into our home. He was very thorough and repaired/cleaned several parts on our furnace. Nate found a cracked heat exchanger in the furnace which meant it needed to be replaced. Our furnace is 17 years old, so it was about that time anyway. He also discovered some pitting in a few parts in the A/C unit. We set up an appointment for the following week to have him replace our furnace with a more efficient 2-stage model as well as have him zone off our ducts so there is one zone downstairs and one zone upstairs. It took a day and a half to have everything completed, including replacing the worn out parts on the A/C unit and having a whole house humidifier installed on the furnace. Nate was prompt each time he came to the house. He was upfront about every cost and was not pushy at all. I research everything I purchase and all of his recommendations were spot on. He cleaned up the work area very well when finished. We are very happy with Nate and Climate King and would highly recommend them!

Nathan and Climate King was wonderful! We had a furnace going bad for 2 years and now was the time to replace it. He took time to explain several options to us along with all the available rebates and credits the utilities are offering. We opted to install a high efficiency furnace and the new Nest computerized thermostat. After several weeks now, we are extremely happy with the new furnace and with Nathan's work. He arrived on time, removed our old unit, put in the new furnace and thermostat, and repaired our air cleaner (which hadn't worked in more than 6 years). It only took a few hours, and everything was clean when he left. He spent time showing me how to use the new thermostat, download the phone app, and apply for the rebates. He was patient with all my questions. Our home has been very comfortable. I definitely recommend Climate King Heating & Cooling.

Very professional, I had my furnace checked and cleaned. We talked about the wide range of services they provide, but there was no pressure to schedule anything else. I felt that he was honest about explaining the condition of our furnace. If we need more heating/cooling work, will definitely use Climate King.
