Furnace Installation & Repair

Furnace Installation & Repair Throughout the Virginia Beach Area

A/C compressor gave up the ghost. Unfortunately it was on a 90 degree day. Joe came out and assessed and agreed it was the compressor. I had proof of the warranty. Joe was here the next morning and in... More stalled the new compressor and capacitor. The system is up and working. Liz at American Mechanical performed the magic that resulted in a one-day decision for repair. The part was in stock. 24 hours after the initial service call I was in a rapidly cooling house. Thanks Joe! Thanks American Mechanical."

What are Common Furnace Problems?

The most common furnace problems are often the ones that people tend to ignore, until the furnace stops working altogether. Remember, a small problem can hint at a deeper underlying issue in your furnace. Handling them in advance can help you save time and money on repairs that could have been avoided.

Here are some of the more common problems we handle for our customers:

  • Control problems in the ignition of the furnace or its heating system often lead to a lack of heat, or intermittent heat.
  • Lack of airflow is often caused by clogged furnace filters due to dirt build-up.
  • An overheating furnace or lack of heating control is often caused by airflow issues from the motors of the fan, as well as the bearings and belts of the furnace.
  • Issues with the thermostat are fairly common, but they are also easily repaired or replaced with professional assistance.
CRACKED HEAT EXCHANGER IS DEADLY!

A Crack in Heat Exchanger Requires Immediate Attention

Not tending to your furnace problems in a timely manner can result in increased energy costs, lack of comfort in the home, and unexpected breakdowns or a crack in the heat exchanger.

Avoid these problems with a quick call to our HVAC experts!

How Long Do Furnaces Last?

The average life of a furnace ranges from 12 to 15 years. However, if you have been maintaining your unit, it can go on to last for 20 years. On the other hand, if the maintenance is particularly poor, you will find your furnace needing replacement within 7 years or so. The importance of regular and proper maintenance on your furnace can never be overstressed. It will not only prolong the life of the furnace, but also make it more energy efficient and effective.
