Service, Quality and Commitment

At Hart & Iliff, when we say your comfort is our business, we mean it. For over 120 years we have been committed to providing our customers with a comfortable environment and peace of mind through quality products and services. In everything we do, we try to be problem preventers rather than just problem solvers. Here’s what we mean:

  • We perform your annual tuneup, then test and adjust your unit with the most advanced computerized equipment available to achieve maximum efficiency, saving you 10% or more off your annual heating bills.
  • Our service vans carry thousands of dollars worth of replacement parts to ensure that we can fix most problems when we get to your home. This avoids unnecessary callbacks and saves you valuable time.
  • Our service technicians are all Licensed HVACR Master Technicians or Apprentices. They continually attend training classes to keep up with the latest heating and cooling technology. When our technicians answer your call, they’re prepared to solve even the most complicated problems.
  • Our exclusive UltrablendⓇ Heating Oil contains detergents, stabilizers, dispersants, inhibitors and an EPA approved microbiocide. In addition to burning cleaner, more efficiently and more economically, Ultrablend helps prevent problems.
  • Our homeowners environmental protection plan takes the worry out of oil tank or fuel system leaks with $100,000 of environmental cleanup coverage, plus tank replacement coverage.
