Collis History

Fred F. Collis & Sons was founded in 1936 by Fred F. Collis, right in his backyard on Elm Street in Utica, New York. At this time, Fred offered oil delivery and furnace/pop heater repairs to the community. Fast Forward to today, our company has grown to offer an expansive list of home comfort services, such as heating, air conditioning, indoor air quality, insulation, and more. We are proud to be a 3rd generation, family-owned and operated business. It has been our pleasure to serve our community since 1936. Each and every member of our team is committed to providing outstanding service, and that’s what we call the Collis difference!
