Burton has been very good to us. They have a membership kind of deal that you can get free maintenance checks, and we have really been glad to take advantage of that. We had to get a new furnace two winters ago and didn’t have much notice, and they were great when they first came in. At our maintenance check yesterday, Oscar was quick and professional. He checked everything out, gave us recommendations, and then completed the maintenance work we asked him to do. We would recommend this business and this technician!
We called Burton because we were having some trouble with our heat. Frank came over today to help and I must say that he provided us with what may be the best and most thorough customer service experience I have had in ANY interaction with any company ever. He was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and helpful. The folks at Burton are very lucky to have Frank on their team and Burton will always be my first call because of Frank.

How to know if a whole home generator is right for you. When stormy weather comes, do you breathe easy or find yourself crossing your fingers? Occasional power outages are to be expected from time to time, but when the other families on your block are comfortably, eating dinner and watching tv, while you’re silently [...]
Dear Burton, We just moved into a new home and I’ve heard some conflicting advice… Does it really matter what wattage light bulbs we use in our new can lights and ceiling fans? Our inspector said it’s important, but my neighbor doesn’t seem to think so. Can you ‘enlighten’ us? Bright-Eyed and Curious Dear Bright-Eyed, [...]

Did your latest air conditioning bill come with a side of sticker shock? You’re not alone! Last summer, the National Energy Assistance Directors Association predicted summer electric bills would spike by 20%!

What do you pay for daily, think about rarely, but could hardly live a week without? If you said hot water, you’re right! When it comes to home comfort, hot water is probably one of the last luxuries that comes to mind. But the average household spends $400 to $600 every year on water heating [...]
