Our Heating Repair Service in Cincinnati
If you need emergency heating repair in Cincinnati, schedule an emergency visit. If your problem is more minor, we’ll still get your repairs done on a schedule that works for you.
When we visit, we’ll:
- Inspect your furnace, boiler, or heat pump (or mini-split) to diagnose the problem and cause.
- Inform you of our findings, providing a fully transparent cost to fix your heater. If your heater is old or has extensive damage, we may recommend heater replacement instead.
- Perform the repairs. We carry the parts to fix most heater models and problems with us, so we can get your heat back up and running in one visit.
- Source additional parts, as necessary. If your heater repair is complex and we need to get parts from our suppliers, we’ll provide you with space heaters to keep warm while you wait for repair.
- Fully test your heat, to make sure the repaired unit works correctly.
Our licensed service technicians can repair gas and oil boilers; gas, oil, and electric furnaces; air-source heat pumps (and mini-splits); and geothermal heat pumps.

Cincinnati, OH Heating Repair FAQs
How can I stay warm while my heater isn’t working?
If you have no heat at all, the best thing to do is keep your family to one or two rooms that have doors you can close. Here’s how to warm up a room without a heater:
- Let the sunlight in, then insulate with curtains or blankets at night.
- Use body heat. The more people, the merrier!
- Light a fire if you have a fireplace, but don’t use a portable gas-fired heating appliance, camp stove, or portable fire pit inside (they are all potentially deadly carbon monoxide dangers!).
- Bundle up. Layers and blankets are your friend until the heat is repaired.
- Put down blankets on hard flooring if you don’t have rugs down.
- Use draft stoppers on your door or improvise with rolled-up towels.
Call us for heater repair. If we can’t fix your heater or install a new solution immediately, we’ll let you know so you can make arrangements. If you’re going to be without heat for an extended period, we recommend staying with a friend or family member or getting a hotel room to stay safe in freezing temperatures.
How cold does Cincinnati get in the wintertime?
The average winter temperature in Cincinnati is the lowest in January, which often dips as low as 20 degrees at night. Throughout winter, daytime temperatures are usually in the 30s and 40s. Lows range down into the 20s and 30s. That’s why it’s so important to get your heat working as quickly as possible!
How do I know who to call for heating gas costs in Cincinnati?
