Markets We Serve

Residential Service in Springfield IL

Many years ago, F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. had humble beginnings like most new businesses. Our initial focus at the time was on residential repair work. As the company grew over the years and spread into additional markets, we never lost sight of “where we came from,” and so our residential repair business has grown right along with the rest of the company. With that longevity comes outstanding experience and the knowledge that there is probably nothing we haven’t seen before. This allows us to diagnose and correct any issues at your home in minimal time and expense.

Single Family

Regardless of the age or value of your home, we welcome the chance to help with any Plumbing, Heating, or Air-Conditioning needs. We know that “your home is your castle,” and we treat it with as much or even more respect than our own. Helping people solve their problems is why we exist; it gives us tremendous satisfaction when we leave your home knowing a job was done which we can all be proud of, no matter how simple or complicated. Maintaining the health of you and your family is always foremost in our minds when we repair and maintain your Plumbing, Heating, or Air-Conditioning systems. So, if you simply need a small repair, are planning to do a major remodel, or even build a new home, contact us, and we will work with you, your general contractor, and/or your architect to provide you with the expert repair or installation you deserve.

Multi Family

F.J. Murphy & Son, Inc. has installed complete systems on many, many multi-family homes in Central Illinois during the time of construction. Applying the same care we use on single-family homes, we service all components of Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and/or Fire Sprinkler systems at Hi-Rises, Apartments, Condominiums, and Townhouses. Many owners of such multi-family properties have discovered that they can hire us on an as-needed basis to do all their mechanical maintenance and repair work at considerable cost savings compared to having full-time maintenance individuals on their payroll. Landlords, especially absentee landlords, have come to depend on and trust us. In many cases, they have found that we care for their properties even better than some of their tenants! As actual landlords ourselves, we have our own experiences we can relate to when understanding the dynamics that occur when a tenant is dealing with an absentee landlord regarding a service requirement. Accordingly, we make the correct choices on your behalf to protect your interests when working in these conditions.

Rural vs. Urban Residential Needs

In the world of residential services, the contrast between rural and urban settings is significant, and at F.J. Murphy & Son, Inc., we recognize the distinct needs of customers in both environments. Rural properties often demand self-sufficient solutions due to limited access to centralized utilities, such as city plumbing and refrigeration. Here, we emphasize robust systems that can operate independently. In urban settings, optimizing space and energy efficiency is a priority, making advanced zoning, compact piping, and efficient plumbing and refrigeration systems crucial. Our company excels in adapting our services to these diverse needs. For rural customers, we offer solutions that ensure self-reliance and longevity. In urban areas, we focus on modern, space-saving technologies that maximize efficiency and comfort. By understanding and addressing these differences, we can cater to the specific requirements of our clients, ensuring their homes are equipped with the ideal HVAC, piping, plumbing, and refrigeration systems. At F.J. Murphy & Son, Inc., we take pride in our flexibility in serving both rural and urban residential customers, ensuring their satisfaction, no matter the setting.
