Heating systems are built to last, but as with all mechanical equipment, will need repairs from time to time. Here are some of the most common reasons our customers schedule furnace repairs with us and some basic troubleshooting tips to help you know when you need to call for service.

Furnace doesn’t turn on:

Keep calm and make sure no circuit breakers have tripped.  Set the thermostat to “heat.”
Turn the temperature up, and wait for a minute or two.
If these basic troubleshooting tips don’t work, call Lindemann.

Little to no heat coming through:

Something could be wrong with the burners or the heat exchanger if the air feels lukewarm. If there’s insufficient airflow, check the filter.
If the filter does not seem to be the problem, you may need to schedule a professional repair with us.

A yellow or flickering burner flame:

This is a sign that carbon monoxide is entering your home. Open windows and doors to let fresh air enter, step outside, and call for assistance.

Odd sounds or smells:

Banging, rattling, and popping are common sounds you might hear if your furnace is acting up.
A burning, smoky, or rotten odor could also mean something is wrong.
Don’t wait around to find out—call Lindemann for the professional repair you need.

Why Did My Furnace Stop Working?

Any breakdown can be very frustrating, and alarming! It may even prompt you to seek emergency service right away. Before you do, there are a few possible conclusions that have a fairly simple solution.

Before you go seeking 24-hour furnace repair:

Inspect the thermostat. Controls can get bumped – often thermostats are in high traffic areas of the home. Before you call for heating repair, make sure the thermostat is set correctly!
Check your air filter. Restrictions in air flow can cause the furnace to run poorly and will eventually trigger overheating (and a subsequent shutdown). Check your air filter first, as it is the most common cause of this fairly commonplace issue.
If you use gas, check the pilot. When a homeowner is looking for ways to fix a gas furnace, the pilot should always be the first thing you check. See that it is on and burning blue (orange indicates burning impurities), and if it is not, try simply resetting it before you call for repair.
When basic troubleshooting fails, it’s best to leave more complex diagnostics and repairs to a professional.

What Do I Do if Furnace Repair Doesn’t Work?

While repair is often the preferred choice, recurring problems or costly furnace repair parts might start leading you in a different direction. Remember, repair is only the preferred option when it’s cost effective for you. If you have to repair your system year after year, then it might be time to talk about furnace replacement.
This may seem like an even higher cost than keeping your current system running another year, but with modern manufacturers offering adverse range of options with varying AFUE ratings, optional accessories, and more, there is a furnace to meet any budget!
It’s just important that you work with the right service team and experts that will work with you rather than try to “sell” you.
