Furnace Installation & Repair

Furnace Installation & Repair Throughout the Virginia Beach Area

Thanks to Joe B. and American Mechanical to save the day to get my heat system up and running again during the aftermath of Helena’s snow storm.  My heat was blowing cold for the last two days and ... More I called American Mechanical.  They said they could get someone out Tuesday.  Joe B. contacted me around 8:30AM and said he would be out and on time.  He was and he performed all the maintenance checks.  He first got the heat on for me temporarily until we could discuss what needed to be fixed.  He gave me several options and explained what was best.  He gave an alternative way to make payments on this much needed upgrade.  He was pleasant and very understanding and took the time to think about what I needed to do without being pressured.  He has explained everything to me as things are being fixed with the assurance that the solution I chose was something that would be a permanent fix and not patching.  I appreciated all the time he took to make it work and most of all the fact that he has more clients to see.  I provided some hot coffee and soup for this very cold day.  If you’re looking for the right company, I found it and the right person is Joe B. – fair, up front and caring for you and the job he had to do.  This wasn’t a one hour fix so grateful this worked out today."

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.
