Massachusetts winters can put plenty of strain on your heating system, and over time that wear and tear can lead to serious issues.
Many of those problems can be prevented with routine heating inspection and maintenance, but there’s always the danger that your heater will stop working in the middle of the heating season.
When that happens, it’s not just an inconvenience: it’s a threat to your family’s health and safety.
Luckily, you can count on Hurley & David to provide fast and efficient home heating repair in Massachusetts.

Heater Repair vs. Replacement
At Hurley & David, we always try to repair your existing heating system if it’s financially viable to do so, but sometimes the cost of repairs outweighs the value those repairs will yield. For instance, if your boiler has internal damage causing leaks or your furnace has cracks in its heat exchanger, it may not be possible to repair those issues without spending more than the system is worth.
Bear in mind also that replacing your system will almost always save you money in the form of reduced heating bills going forward, which helps offset the cost of installation.
If your heating system is damaged badly enough to merit possible replacement, we won’t push you one way or the other. Instead, we’ll help you compare the cost of repairs to the cost of a new system, along with the long-term implications of each option. Whether you opt for a heating repair or start fresh, our HVAC technicians will get the job done, backed by our unmatched guarantees.
Heating issues are serious business, and you need to take action right away if any emerge in your home. Give us a call at (413) 200-4203 to schedule a service visit.
Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
