A gas furnace can use either natural gas or propane as a fuel source. Both types are very common in the Richmond, VA area. In fact, the majority of houses in North America rely on gas furnaces for home heating.
Gas furnaces work by:
Producing flames through a combustion process to heat a metal heat exchanger
Transferring heat via the heat exchanger to the air flowing through the duct system
Our experienced heating system technicians have comprehensive knowledge of how to install, maintain, repair, and replace all types of gas furnace heating systems.
Oil Furnace Replacements
An oil furnace operates similarly to gas furnaces. The difference is the fuel source, which is oil. Oil is expensive, and the systems can be messy. Most households with oil furnace systems are looking for an alternative.
While we do not service or install oil furnaces, we often assist homeowners in converting their old oil furnaces to a gas furnace or a heat pump. We provide free estimates for this service, and we can recommend the best type of heating system for you, based on your needs and budget.
When the colder weather starts to arrive, it is time to start thinking about your furnace.

Service for Boilers
Boilers are common in older homes in the Richmond area. Instead of heating air, they heat water. That water is sent through a radiator system to provide heat to the house. Boilers offer great heat. They can be run on natural gas, propane, or oil. Natural gas boilers are the most popular option of the three.
If you are ready to install a new gas boiler in your home, Short Pump Heating & Air is ready to provide you with a free estimate! We install several brands of gas boilers, including traditional systems and tankless boiler options. If you have any questions related to your gas boiler installation, don’t hesitate to contact us for answers and help!

FAQs About Heating Services
Some of the frequently asked questions we receive include:
How long do heating systems last?
Virginia heating systems can last from 15-25 years. A lot depends on homeowner care – replacing filters so your system doesn’t have to work so hard, and keeping the unit and ductwork clean. But regular, professional maintenance every fall and spring does more to prolong the life of your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system. A heating unit is one of your biggest financial investments and it’s worth it to keep it running efficiently as long as possible.
How often should you replace your heating system?
At 10 years of age, you should begin setting aside the money you’ll need to replace your heating system. At 15 years of age, it’s time to begin the consideration process for replacing your system.
Watch for these warning signs:
Frequent repairs – If you have had 2 HVAC repair visits in one year, it’s probably time to replace your heating system.
Gas burner flame not blue – This can indicate a lot of issues, including the most dangerous one: Your system may be leaking gas or carbon monoxide. Call (804) 364-9040 for emergency service.
Noises – You shouldn’t hear more than the quiet sound of air moving throughout your home.
Some rooms too hot or too cold – You shouldn’t need to constantly adjust the thermostat to stay comfortable.
Your heating bill increases – This means your unit is working harder to provide the same level of comfort.
Is it bad to sleep with the heater on?
If you’re using a space heater to keep bedrooms warm, it’s dangerous and not worth the risk. Let’s find a furnace installation that’s reliable with affordable financing for your home. Your safety is our priority.
