Heating System Install & Replacements

Making a decision regarding whether or not to replace your heating system or just try and have it repaired can be a difficult decision to make. What it will come down to, though, is the most ideal compromise between cost and comfort level received. We’re happy to help in this process.

Here are some things to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace your heating equipment:

  • How old is your heater, furnace, or boiler?
  • Does your current heating system need frequent repairs?
  • Are your energy bills going up?
  • Do your rooms feel too hot or not warm enough?

In today’s market, there are various heating service options: solar heating, electric heating, furnaces, boilers, geothermal heating, steam, and water radiators. While we encourage you to research replacement systems before it becomes an emergency, you can also consult with our technicians. We can evaluate your current heating system, and recommend a solution that meets your individual needs.

Together, you and our heating service specialists can consider all fuel and heating system types to determine which makes the most sense. Discussing energy saving and efficiency levels, operational and maintenance costs in the beginning will ensure your long-term investment is the right one for you.

Common Furnace and Heater Repair Problems

Sometimes, we expect our heating systems just to run smoothly for as long as we need them to. Unfortunately, just like any other machine, they have flaws and are prone to malfunction if the proper maintenance or attention isn’t given to them periodically.

Here are some of the most common problems that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

  • Clogged or dirty filters resulting in air flow and comfort problems
  • Airflow problems from fan motors, causing furnace overheating or poor heating control
  • Thermostat or heat pump malfunctions causing no heat and fan issues
  • Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems
  • Lack of maintenance causes unexpected breakdowns, or increased energy costs
  • Duct problems, inadequate air sealing or insulation

For all these common issues, a professionally qualified and certified Virginia Beach HVAC technician can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the necessary heating and furnace repairs. Having a maintenance plan could prevent nearly all heating problems that result in no heat or low comfort levels.

Heating System Maintenance Service

Routine maintenance and annual checkups will help keep your heating system operating at peak performance. Before the heating season, perform maintenance at least once a year.

No matter what type of heating system you have, here are some things you can do to prolong the life of and keep your boiler, furnace, or heater in top condition:

  • Use a high-efficiency air filter
  • Keep heat units free of leaves, pollen, and grass
  • Replace your air filter at least every 90 days
  • Turn off water to the furnace humidifier in the summer
  • Replace your carbon monoxide detector battery annually

During a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they operate correctly and at peak efficiency during the heating season. Important items like Carbon Monoxide checks, adequate combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also key elements to the tune-up process. Especially during the heating season, we remind our customers of safety measures.

Always remember that furnaces of any age may pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a certified HVAC technician has not maintained the equipment regularly.

Call our Virginia Beach heating team today to take advantage of our offers and keep your home or business as comfortable as you prefer throughout the cold months!
