Burt’s Reliable Knows How to Protect your North Fork Summer Home with Vacation Home Maintenance

We Can Prevent Emergencies from Happening and Save You a Long Trip

Burts will take care of your vacation home's heating and cooling needs

During the cold seasons, most vacation homes on the North Fork are either lightly used or closed entirely. That’s why nearly 2,000 customers leave their keys with us so we can look after their home during the off-season. This saves them the hassle of making long trips out to their second home.

Here’s what we do to protect your vacation home:

  • We make sure your home’s heating oil and/or kerosene tanks always have enough fuel to keep enough heat in the home during winter. (You cannot shut the heat off entirely or you risk frozen pipes.)
  • We shut down the water, tune up the equipment and generally keep the home both winterized and ready to go for the return of spring.

Should any problems occur, we will contact you right away. For further protection, we recommend a wireless tank monitor and Wi-Fi thermostat.
