Heating

Furnace service.

Nothing beats a warm and cozy feeling inside your Ashland home on a chilly winter evening.

Your heating system is your most trusted source of warmth. Without it, you would be covering yourself in layers and blankets to avoid shivering from the cold.

But how reliable is your furnace? Do you know where to turn for an emergency repair in Virginia if there’s an issue? Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems must operate in all types of weather—plus, you need a trusted team of professionals to help you take care of it.

That’s where Howell’s Heating & Air comes in. Our NATE-certified heating and cooling experts have the knowledge and professionalism to ensure your HVAC and indoor air quality (IAQ) equipment is operating as efficiently as possible. We install, replace, repair, and maintain all makes and models.

How to Choose a New Furnace

When you’re adding a new furnace or upgrading your current model, consider the following:

  • Size: Be sure the furnace you choose is compatible with the size of your home. It will need to provide heating for every room. Our Howell’s Heating & Air experts always factor this into the equation and can make a recommendation on the best furnace for your particular home—give us a call!
  • Type: There are several types of furnaces: single-stage, two-stage, and variable speed. A single-stage could work for a smaller home, but a two-stage can operate in two different modes, resulting in greater efficiency. The most efficient is a variable speed furnace—it operates at a lower speed but does so for a longer cycle to reduce operating costs.
  • Efficiency: If you want a more energy-efficient furnace, check the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. Higher AFUE ratings indicate the furnace can convert more fuel into energy, resulting in the most efficiency.

With Howell’s Heating & Air, you never have to compromise on quality. All of our furnace installation and replacement services are performed by trained and experienced professionals.

Either way, you are making an investment—whether you’re installing a furnace in a brand new home or replacing an outdated furnace in your current home. Let’s ensure you make the best choice, one that provides comfort and safety for years to come.

“I had to schedule a service call on a Saturday for a faulty gas furnace. I called the Howell’s office and the associate there took my info and said she would contact the service technician ASAP. Within 10-15 minutes I received a call from Tim Pace, he introduced himself, asked some questions about the issue, and informed me of his ETA. Tim arrived at the promised time, got a little more info about the problem, and got right to work.

After a very thorough examination of the issue, he explained to me the reason for the problem and what it would take to fix it. I asked him to proceed with the repair. He went back to work on it and within 20-30 minutes had the furnace running like new.

Throughout the entire service call Tim exhibited a thoroughly professional bearing. He laid out the cause-and-effect of the problem, was quick to address the few questions that I had, and took care of making sure that all was well before leaving.

Many thanks also to the associate that I spoke with when I called in for the assistance.

It is continued quality service and performance like this that has given me the confidence to rely on Howell’s for my HVAC needs.”

“Mark and Josh(?) did a great job with maintenance. They checked out a problem that surfaced with a furnace and reported the options if something fails.
Mark was personable and showed an expertise in servicing our units. Thank you, Howells”

“Ricardo came out to inspect a house we were under contract for that had just been serviced by another company a week earlier. He found a cracked heat exchanger and an air conditioning unit that was Frankensteined together. He was polite, thorough, and frankly quite possibly saved our lives. If we had trusted the other company we may have not woken up one morning after we moved in due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Thanks Howell's and THANK YOU Ricardo!”
