HVAC Maintenance

Whether you have recently purchased a new, high-efficiency system, or your system is 20 years old, it is important to protect your investment and to maximize your system’s operating efficiency by having it maintained by an experienced and trained technician.  Just like your car, a forced air system needs periodic care to avoid sluggish performance and to prevent costly repairs and downtime.  At BDL Heating & Cooling, we offer seasonal tune-ups and preventative maintenance programs to help meet these needs in Southeastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and the Boston area, including North Attleboro.

Weekend Maintenance Appointments
  • Priority service guarantees that when the temperatures get to extremes and you need us most, you aren’t competing with everyone else for a spot on our schedule. Our Priority Service customers go to the front of the line, and when it gets busy, we put space aside so we can get to you quickly. For Diamond plans, we guarantee a service visit to your home within 24 hours.
  • Access to 24-hour emergency service means that if you have an emergency with your equipment after-hours, over the weekend, or even on a holiday, you can call us anytime. We have technicians on-call 24/7 to address your needs, day or night. Platinum and Diamond plans even get a discount on emergency service.
  • Sometimes price increases are necessary, but with maintenance plan inflation protection, you’ll know that when we must raise rates for everyone else, you’ll have another year (or two!) before your plan is impacted.
  • For Diamond plans only, we also offer weekend maintenance appointments if scheduling on a weekday is inconvenient, as well as the option to choose your maintenance technician.
  • And when the time comes to upgrade your equipment, your plan pays you back with system replacement discounts of up to 6% off.

In addition to offering regular maintenance, we also provide options for duct sealing and inspection. Common duct problems include leaky, torn and disconnected ducts, poorly sealed registers and grills, leaks at the equipment or filter slot, and kinks in flexible ductwork.  These problems can reduce efficiency by more than 20%. Solving these problems will not only save you on energy costs, but will also increase your comfort. If you have an area of the house that is always too cold/warm, or if you notice air leaking from your ductwork, call us today for a consultation.

A few words about BDL…

I can’t say enough good things about these guys. Very responsive, great customer service, and reasonably priced. Our heat died on the coldest night of the year so far. Another large contractor had come out and taken a look and quoted an insanely expensive price because they knew I did not have heat and I was in a bind. I decided to get a 2nd opinion and called BDL. They came out and replaced the part for a fraction of the cost of my first quote, which was much more in-line with what the part costs and the labor required. These guys are great and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Josh is great, Brian (owner) great, Brian’s son- great. Really awesome company to work with. Brian actually showed up on the 4th of July to install our new condenser…If you want it done right, you need to use a reliable, trustworthy company like BDL.

Maureen U. , Quincy, MA

Old time customer service is something you just don’t find today as it appears to be forgotten or the last concern in any business, but your team of professionals have restored my faith and truly deliver just a great experience.

Tom H. , North Attleboro, MA

The BEST HVAC company! I love using BDL. I work in real estate and have referred many clients to Brian with superb feedback and results. He really knows how to treat people and his crew is well trained and professional.  A total winner.

Jonathan S. , Brookline, MA

BDL/Brian and team are by far the best HVAC company in the area they serve! Full removal/install of new air handler & A/C condenser in a VERY tight space. Old unit was 25 years old and installed in an old mill that was converted to condo’s.

Courtney C., Marlborough, MA

Thank you for sending someone so quickly! Very nice staff! Would use them again and recommend to anyone.

Christi W., Foxboro, MA

I just wanted to personally thank you and the team for the outstanding job and exceedingly high level of customer service that you provided with my furnace install. It was single handedly one of, if not the best experience I have ever had when dealing with a vendor/contractor. From start to finish the project was executed in a professional, detail oriented manner not often found these days. Brian, out of all of the vendors that I had come do my original quotes, you were the only one who actually took the time to talk out the project scope and my options which resonated greatly with me. And Josh I thank you again for answering what felt like a never ending stream of questions, many times off hours which certainly was well above what was necessary! In addition, the members of the BDL install team were all extremely polite, professional, and outrageously clean while working on site and really did a top notch job.
Rest assured that you have gained a loyal supporter! Thanks again for the great work and all the best to you and the team!

Ken D., Attleboro, MA

I’ve been using BDL since we moved to North Attleboro. Everyone I’ve dealt with has been top notch. Prices are very reasonable and the service is quick, clean and professional. Great local company.
