Top-Rated Home Heating Solutions

Burns & McBride has been providing our service areas with heating services since 1949. Whether you have gas or oil heat, a heat pump or water heater, our technicians can service or install equipment regardless of brand.

For immediate heater repair service, call 302-212-0480. True Comfort Members get priority repair service during busy periods.

We understand that heating installations are a large purchase for homeowners. When our technicians visit to quote a new system or diagnose an old one, they’ll be careful to explain the pros and cons of replacing the unit. Often times, the equipment can be serviced to extend the life. If the equipment is no longer capable of running at optimum efficiency, it may be time to replace. Always ask about rebates before purchasing new equipment. More than 500 of our customers saved thousands of dollars on new equipment through the Energize Delaware rebate program in 2018.

Service Plans

The best way to lower monthly bills, extend the life of your heater and avoid costly breakdowns is to purchase a service plan. Our True Comfort plan provides annual maintenance to your heater, access to discounts, priority 24/7 emergency service and much more. Our technicians can tell you more about the plans when they visit.

Experienced Technicians 

Our experienced HVAC professionals have worked on every brand, including Carrier, American Standard, Trane, Buderus, Mitsubishi and many more. When you call Burns & McBride, you’re contacting highly-trained, certified professionals backed by our service guarantees.

Home Heating Efficiency

Do you know what the largest energy expense is in the U.S. home? You guessed it – heating! Heating can be costly, but it doesn’t have to be. A service plan is more than just protection against a broken heater. Your system will run better. Check out this infographic “Everything You Need to Know About Home Heating” from See those columns for “efficiency” and “life expectancy” in the Heating Systems section? A True Comfort service plan can improve both of those metrics dramatically – keeping your system alive and well through the most brutal of Northeast winters.

Insulation is also very important for your home’s heating efficiency. Heat escapes from poorly insulated ductwork and leaves your home feeling less than comfortable. Heat can also escape from door trappings, windows, and other places. The Department of Energy has a helpful infographic (page 7) here that shows a number of places in your home where heat will try to make a break for it. Of course, keeping more hot air locked into your home means the home will heat faster and your heater will run less often, lowering your bill.

Heating Rebates & Incentives

Regional rebates are available for property owners looking to upgrade to more energy-efficient heating equipment. For a full list of active residential rebates, refer to the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency or call us.

Delaware property owners have access to Energize Delaware. The Energize Delaware program provides instant rebates for Delaware homeowners who choose to make energy-friendly upgrades to their properties. Burns & McBride has helped Delaware owners receive more than $500,000 in rebates through this program. Following any of these qualifying upgrades, your utility bills will fall and your home will be more comfortable. Energize Delaware is a local sponsor of Home Performance with ENERGY STAR, a national program from the U.S. Department of Energy. You can view the Home Performance with Energy Star PDF here.
