Warning Signs You Need Furnace Repair

It would be nice if we had a forewarning that our furnace is about to fail. There actually are some telltale signs that can give you a clue that your furnace is either getting ready to fail or is close to a time when that will be a real possibility. Here at Wellmann Heating & Air, we believe that catching any problems early is better for our customers. This will make sure that when winter hits Lincoln and the surrounding area, your family will remain cozy. Look for the following signs that you should call for a furnace check-up and furnace repair.


Furnaces normally last between fifteen and twenty years. The date your furnace was installed should be somewhere on the outside. If it is getting close to the fifteen-year mark, have your furnace checked now.

Cold Air

If your furnace seems to turn on but the air it is blowing doesn’t get warm, there is something going wrong. There could be a few different reasons for this but all are a reason for repair.

Strange Noises

Furnaces that have started making pops, rattles and other strange noises are in need of repair. These noises can indicate such problems as internal parts coming loose.

Yellow Pilot Light

This is for natural gas furnaces. The pilot light should always be blue. If you check and the light is yellow, turn everything off immediately. This is a sign your furnace could be releasing carbon monoxide. Another sign of this is smelling something like a rotten egg. This requires immediate repair.

No Flame

If you turn on the furnace and smell gas and the coil seems to heat up but the flame doesn’t appear, turn off the furnace and call for a repair immediately. This normally indicates the igniter needs to be replaced.
