What Does HVAC Mean?

HVAC is an acronym that stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. The term “HVAC” is used interchangeably with many heating and cooling industry words and phrases. It is an “umbrella term” that covers a wide range of products, including:

Is It Time to Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioning Unit?

This is one of the most common questions we get asked on a daily basis, and there is no “one size fits all” answer here. If your air conditioner or heat pump is at least 10 years old and needs a significant repair, an HVAC system replacement can be a good idea. Some important factors to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace your AC system or heat pump include the:

  • Age and warranty status of the unit
  • Repair costs
  • Type of refrigerant in the AC system
  • Original Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating
  • Budget
  • Frequency of problems

How Long Does It Take to Install a New Central Air System?

Replacing an existing HVAC system typically takes one day. We usually arrive in the morning and often have the new air conditioner running by the afternoon. We have a very efficient air conditioning installation process. Our HVAC installers arrive at your home with all of the details, tools, and equipment needed to complete the job efficiently and properly. That is why we are the number one choice for new HVAC system installations in and around Richmond!

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a system that can be used to either heat or cool your home. It functions just like an air conditioner, but it can also reverse the refrigeration cycle to heat air. Common in the Richmond area, heat pumps are very efficient heating and cooling systems. Usually, they’re matched with an electric air handler, and they are often paired with a gas furnace. The electric heater or the gas furnace assist the heat pump in heating when it gets really cold. In milder winter weather, heat pump systems can be the most efficient way to heat homes.

Heat Pump Repair and Installation Services

Heat pumps efficiently heat your home in the winter and cool your house in the summer. We service and repair all makes and models of heat pump systems. We also provide seasonal maintenance on thousands of heat pumps in the Richmond area. If it is time to have your heat pump system replaced, we can explain the pros and cons of different replacement options, based on your needs and budget. We will also provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate for installation service.

What You Need to Know When Buying a New Heat Pump

Purchasing a new heat pump is just like buying a new air conditioner. These units typically last at least 10 years. Because of this, most people do not have much experience buying them. If you need to buy a new system, it is essential to schedule a free estimate with a reputable HVAC service company, like Short Pump Heating & Air, so you choose the right system. Some important factors to consider when buying a new heat pump include:

  • The reputation of the contractor
  • The warranty associated with the new heat pump (parts and labor)
  • The make and model of the system
  • Energy efficiency and use
  • Cost and payment options

3 Essential Facts to Know about Home Heating Systems

  1. Heat pumps and gas furnaces heat homes through duct systems. In contrast, gas boiler systems heat homes through hot water baseboards and radiators.
  2. In general, heating homes costs about twice as much as cooling homes. 
  3. Regularly maintenance for your home’s heating system ensures that it is always running efficiently and optimally, which can save you big in monthly energy bills. Also, regular heating system maintenance can reduce the need for repairs while prolonging the life of your system.

Gas Boiler Repairs and Replacement

Boilers, also known as hydronic heating systems, are common in the older homes around Richmond, VA. They deliver heat by circulating hot water through radiator systems. The HVAC contractors at Short Pump Heating & Air are very experienced in servicing and repairing gas boiler systems, as well as installing new systems. We also assist customers in converting existing oil boilers to natural gas boilers. Free estimates are available for all of our boiler services.

Is Your Furnace Having Problems?

Heating system problems usually come at the worst possible time.  If your furnace is not working, it is always best to call a professional. If you do want to take a few steps, you can:

  1. Make sure the air filter is clean.
  2. Make sure the circuit breaker is not tripped.
  3. Make sure the thermostat is working correctly.
  4. Check the pilot light if you have an older furnace.

Furnace problems can cause safety hazards. So, always be careful if you do decide to take any of the above steps. If troubleshooting your heating system is beyond your comfort level, just call (804) 364-9040 to talk to a heating expert at Short Pump Heating & Air. We can diagnose the problem, repair your furnace, or provide you with an estimate for a replacement heating system.
