We'd Like to Welcome You to Dead River Company

After thoughtfully considering who should continue to care for their customers, employees, and communities served, last fall, Charlie Burnham and George Gyorgy transferred ownership of Charlie Burnham Energy & Heating Service to Dead River Company. Charlie and George have graciously assisted the team during the transition.

Knowing Dead River Company's reputation for prompt, reliable, personalized service, the team at Charlie Burnham Energy & Heating Service was excited to join the Dead River Company team. Together, we look forward to continuing to serve your heating needs.
