Heat Pump Services
A heat pump is an energy-efficient, money-saving alternative to other heating systems because it doesn’t create heat. Instead, it redistributes heat from outside your home to the inside. Whether you need a heat pump repaired or a new one installed, C.B. Lucas offers comprehensive heat pump services to keep your system operating smoothly.

Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Furnace
If you notice your furnace showing one of these signs, schedule a consultation today. We’ll send a certified C.B. Lucas technician to take a look and see if your furnace can be repaired or if it would cost less over time to replace it.
- Increased utility costs: New, energy-efficient furnace heating systems are now available to reduce your heating bills.
- It’s more than 15 years old: With a regular maintenance routine, furnaces have life spans of around 15 to 20 years. After that, the cost to repair your furnace starts to outweigh the cost of replacing it.
- Rooms are heated unevenly: If one room is cozy while you have to wear a coat in another, the furnace unit itself might be the problem.
- Gas odor near your furnace: Gas odors could indicate a more urgent problem. We have a technician on call 24/7 at (703) 590-3700 for heating system emergencies.

Installation & Replacement FAQs
When is it better to replace or repair my heater?
The 50% rule is a convenient way to determine your best strategy. If your repair costs are 50% or more of a new unit price, a replacement is best. Don’t forget to account for age, though. Most HVAC units have life spans of 15 to 30 years. If you’re nearing the end of that period, a repair might not be worth it.
What’s best? A heat pump, furnace, or boiler?
Every homeowner has their own HVAC priorities. Some are looking for cheap running costs, while others favor eco-friendliness. Still, others are looking for a unit that can cool their homes in summer and heat them in winter. A heat pump is perfect for those who need to reduce their upfront costs, but a boiler will serve you better if you’re hoping to separate from the grid. If you’re averse to heavy maintenance, a boiler will suit your preferences, but if you live in a particularly chilly climate, a furnace may be more reliable.
