About the MacFarlane’s

Community and family are important to the MacFarlane family and the communities MacFarlane Energy has serviced since 1946. Having learned the family business from his father, Scott has served as President of MacFarlane Energy since the 1992 and is proud today to work alongside his son, also named Scott, for almost ten years. Wife Cathy joined the business in 2002 after taking time off to raise her family and volunteer in the Needham Community. As longtime Needham residents for almost 40 years, Scott and Cathy are active in local community organizations including Needham Rotary Club, Needham Garden Club, Massachusetts Oilheat Council, New England Fuel Institute, and The Home for Little Wanderers Voices for Children Committee. The MacFarlane family works closely with their staff to stay current with the latest industry changes and improvements to provide the best possible services to customers.

Dear Friends:


Brown’s Oil and Air Conditioning is pleased to announce that we have merged with MacFarlane Energy, a leading provider in the Heating and Air Conditioning Industry.

Merging with MacFarlane Energy will allow us to continue expanding and strengthening the services we provide to new and existing customers. Through MacFarlane Energy’s family-oriented approach and a commitment to training their staff on the latest state-of-the-art equipment, you will have access to the latest energy-efficient technologies and high-quality assistance.

For more than 35 years, I have known MacFarlane Energy’s owner Scott MacFarlane through our involvement in different industry organizations. I am excited to have an opportunity to work more closely with Scott and his team to provide our customers with the best oil, gas, and air conditioning service in the area. Brown’s Needham office will remain open and from time-to-time, you will see both MacFarlane and Brown vehicles servicing your home. 

Along with MacFarlane’s dedicated staff, both Scott and I are available to speak with you to answer any questions you have about this merger or your account. My dedicated employees; Wayne, Pete, Artie, Peter, Burt, Dick, and Margie will continue to work with us. Please feel free to call us at 781-444-1789.
