Heating Repair & Services

Heating Contractors Serving the Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads Area

My ac unit was cooling but wouldn’t cycle on & off correctly. I called American Mechanical & John Conaway arrived the next day. He checked the system and quickly realized it was the thermost... More at. One hour later my ac was working perfectly. I felt as if I were treated honestly because Mr. Conaway only did what was necessary & I was happy with only a thermostat. A polite office staff did a follow up call & I was extremely happy with American Mechanical."

Heating System Install & Replacements

Finding the right heating system for your space takes many factors into consideration. Here are some things to consider when deciding whether to change 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

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
  • Air flow problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overheating or poor heating control
  • Thermostat or heat pump malfunctions causing no heat, fan issues, and ultimately compromises comfort
  • Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems resulting in intermittent or no heat
  • Lack of maintenance causes unexpected breakdowns, poor comfort or increased energy costs
  • Duct problems, inadequate air sealing or insulation could be the cause. No matter how efficient your heating and cooling system is, if your home is not properly sealed and insulated against air leakage, you will not be as comfortable and your system will have to work harder.

For all these common issues, a professionally qualified and certified 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.
