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.

Furnace Installation and Replacement

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Either way, you are making an investment—whether you’re installing a furnace in a brand new home or replacing an outdated furnace in your current home.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.

Gas Furnace Repair in Mechanicsville, VA 23116

“Hill Downstairs heat went out the night before Christmas Eve. Called Howells around 8:00 PM and left message. On return call, I was told that they had been flooded with calls due to the wind and cold weather, which was at totally understandable, but could be at my house around noon the next day. C.L. called around 9:00 AM on Christmas Eve and said he would be at my house in 20 minutes. He diagnosed the problem, fixed it, explained the issue and was gone in about an hour. Considering the weather, number of houses without heat and Christmas upon us, Howells exceeded expectations.”

“Mark came to my 55 and Above home last Monday and was prompt as usual. He is always so nice and offers to help me in any way he can while he’s here. When he was in the attic, servicing my gas furnace, I asked him to bring down a fall wreath when he finished. He also took a couple wreaths up the disappearing stairs. I haven’t used the disappearing stairs since my knee replacements. I feel confident with Mark servicing both my river home and my home in Varina. Sara Huber in service is outstanding.”
