HEATING & COOLING SYSTEM REPAIR and MAINTENANCE
What it takes to restore the comfort of your home will depend on the issue with your HVAC system. The problem may be something that needs to be repaired.
Your unit may need to be fixed if:
- There’s an unexplained increase in your energy bill. A poorly functioning machine must work overtime to cool or heat your home. That means it needs more power to do its job, equating to higher electricity costs.
- The furnace or AC is making strange noises. Clanks, bangs, rumbles, or any other unusual sounds coming from your system might mean one of the parts has come loose, become damaged, or worn out over time.
- The room isn’t getting to your desired temperature. If you’re constantly fiddling with your thermostat, the device may need to be fixed.
- The unit constantly powers on and off. The system may shut down if it overheats and then starts back up when it cools down. It should not be doing that within a short period – starting, stopping, and starting again.
- The temperature is uneven in different parts of your home. There may be a problem with your system’s ductwork if certain rooms are cooling down or heating up but others are not.

New Heating & Air Conditioning Installations
In some cases, a simple repair won’t get the job done. Your system may need to be replaced entirely.
You might need a new unit installed if:
- The furnace or air conditioner is old. A heating or cooling unit may last up to 20 or 25 years. If you have an older unit, it may be time to upgrade to a more efficient model.
- The unit frequently needs to be repaired. Constantly having the same issue or many different problems with your heating or cooling system may suggest that the machine is seriously damaged, and it would be more practical to get a new one.
- The system is not heating or cooling your home at all. HVAC systems are supposed to heat your home or cool it down. If yours isn’t doing either, consider getting a replacement.
At Nuckols Heating & Cooling, our Richmond HVAC technicians can determine what’s making your system act up and what needs to be done to get it fixed. We’ll review your options and help find a cost-effective and lasting solution for you.
Additionally, we offer maintenance services to ensure that your system is functioning right all year long. Our technicians will check filters, lines, and other components, helping prevent costly repairs in the future.
Understanding Efficiency Ratings
AFUE, SEER, and HSPF are acronyms that stand for important measures of efficiency when it comes to heating, cooling and refrigeration systems.
- AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, which is a measure of furnace efficiency.
- SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and measures the efficiency of air conditioners and the cooling side of heat pumps.
- HSPF stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor, which assesses how efficient a heat pump system is over its heating season of operation.
Knowing these three ratings is important knowledge for any homeowner looking to invest in new heating or cooling systems. The higher the number, the greater the efficiency.
