High-Quality Heating System Installation, Repairs, and Maintenance

Blakeslee & Son offers a full range of heating services in Rockford, Michigan and throughout West Michigan, including:

Heating System Installation

Our expert technicians are ready to install a variety of heating appliances and systems including:


Blakeslee & Son offers a wide variety of Blakeslee variable and multispeed furnaces to provide indoor comfort that only requires you to slowly turn up your thermostat rather than making a drastic change to achieve the desired temperature. These gas furnaces deliver maximum energy efficiency and savings along with the highest possible AFUE rating.

Keeping your family comfortable is important to us, so we work to provide top-quality HVAC services. The Blakeslee brand gas furnace line delivers warm, money-saving comfort throughout the year.

Find out how to choose a furnace that’s properly sized for your home.


A boiler system, also known as a hydronic heat system, uses a combustion source (natural gas, propane, or fuel oil) to heat water, which then runs through the pipes in your home to keep you warm. We primarily install Navien and Viessmann boilers and offer several different sizes.

Ductless Systems

A ductless heat system is what it sounds like — no ductwork. Ductless systems are easier to install, space-saving, and more efficient. Ductless systems come in different forms and sizes depending on the space that needs to be heated, offering customizable solutions. At Blakeslee & Son, we carry Fujitsu ductless systems.

Whole-Home Humidifiers

Whole-home humidifiers treat the entire home, using your ducts to distribute treated air back to your living areas, working with your heating system to keep your home comfortable. At Blakeslee & Son, we install Honeywell and Aprilaire humidifiers. Humidifiers can benefit your health in many ways, including:

  • Preventing dry lips and skin
  • Preventing itchy eyes
  • Preventing bloody noses
  • Soothing symptoms of colds and respiratory ailments

Signs You Need Emergency Furnace Repair

Furnace issues are never convenient, and some problems warrant a quicker response than others. Call Blakeslee & Son in Rockford, MI, and we’ll help you determine the right fix for your furnace. As a general rule, you should schedule that furnace repair when you notice these warning signs:

  • “Rotten Egg” Smells. While it’s common for a little dusty smell when you first turn your furnace on, a rotten egg smell is no joke. This smell indicates a gas leak and should be addressed immediately by a professional before it becomes even more hazardous.
  • Unusual Sounds. Banging, rattling, or other sounds that aren’t part of your normal furnace operation usually indicate loose or damaged parts in your furnace system. Call in for repairs before your whole furnace is put at risk.
  • Loss of Airflow. This may be due to your blower fan, your ductwork, or any number of other causes. What’s for certain is that you’ll never be comfortable with a furnace that’s not operating at 100%. Call us for emergency furnace repair in Rockford—we have emergency service available every day.
  • Yellow Flame in Your Furnace. If you inspect the pilot light in your furnace, it should be blue, not yellow or orange. A yellow or orange flame means that the gas isn’t burning hot enough—a definite indicator of a furnace problem, and a potential indicator of a carbon monoxide leak.
  • Carbon Monoxide Detector Going Off. If there’s one issue you should take most seriously, it’s carbon monoxide, the “silent killer.” You are especially at risk of this with a very old furnace, where a cracked heat exchanger yields a high probability of a carbon monoxide leak. Call a furnace professional and replace your old unit as soon as possible.
  • Your Furnace Won’t Turn On. This goes without saying: if your furnace won’t turn on when you need it to, leave it to the pros. It could be a pilot light or burner issue, neither of which go away on their own. 

Signs That You Need Furnace Replacement

It might be hard to make the choice between repairs and full-blown furnace replacement, but if any of the following are true about your furnace, you should consider furnace replacement over repairs:

  • Your furnace is 20+ years old
  • The costs of your needed furnace repairs total up to more than half the price of a new furnace
  • Your furnace fails after repeated repairs
  • Your energy bills are too high

We’ll Help You Answer Your Heating Questions.

How often should my heating system be professionally serviced?

To avoid any emergency heating repair or replacements, you should have your heating system regularly serviced in the fall, before the extreme winter temperatures put it to the test. 

Schedule your tune-up today or learn more about furnace tune-ups!

What’s the best thermostat setting for energy savings?

The U.S. Dept. of Energy recommends setting your thermostat to 68°F during the winter months for the most optimal energy savings. However, it’s important to note that your settings shouldn’t be static. We suggest adjusting your settings before going to bed and while you’re away from home for maximum performance.

How can I make my system more energy efficient?

There are several ways to directly and indirectly optimize the efficiency of your HVAC system. Some of the most important ways include:

  • Regularly changing your air filter.
  • Enrolling in an HVAC service plan to ensure regular attention and optimal care for your system.
  • Properly insulating and thoroughly sealing leaks in your home.
  • Installing shades or curtains in rooms exposed to extreme sunlight.

How often should I change the filters in my furnace?

​​To safeguard the performance, efficiency, and lifespan of your heating system and maintain healthy air in your home, change the filters in your furnace at least every three months. And if you live with kids and/or pets, you may want to clean or change your filter even more frequently than that—every 1-2 months.

What does AFUE stand for?

Gas furnaces are rated according to their annual fuel utilization efficiency, or AFUE. The AFUE measures the furnace’s efficiency in converting fuel to energy. The higher the AFUE rating is, the more efficient the unit. For example, a furnace that has an 80% AFUE rating can turn 80% of the energy it consumes into heat. The other 20 percent is used during the heating process.

How do I know what size heating system our house needs?

There are several factors that go into properly sizing heating equipment for your home, including the square footage of your house, the climate, the number and type of windows installed, insulation, and even the number of people living in the house. And at Blakeslee & Son, our expert installers take the guesswork out of furnace installation! Aside from their experience in quoting and installing furnaces, our techs take into account YOUR needs and wants. Call or schedule an appointment with us to find the perfect fit.

Read more about choosing a furnace that’s properly sized for your home.

How do I know if I should repair or replace my heating system?

Your heating system is most definitely due for a replacement if it is 15+ years old. At that age, not only is your system inefficient, but also not worth putting a lot of money into repairs. If that’s not the case, have a licensed heating professional evaluate your current system. At Blakeslee & Son, we’ll be able to tell you if there is a simple issue that is resolvable, or if you need to be planning for a replacement.

Is there a way to make the air from my furnace less dry?

Yes! At Blakeslee & Son, we offer whole-home humidifiers that give you control over the level of dryness in your heated air. Whole-home humidifiers treat the entire home, using your ducts to distribute treated air back to your living areas, working with your heating system to keep your home comfortable.
