Emergency Heating Repair in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro Area
Having a working heater in Minnesota isn’t just about comfort — it’s about safety. Without a properly working heater, your home will have issues caused by the extreme cold.
Luckily, the HVAC pros at Genz-Ryan Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical have been repairing heating systems in the Twin Cities since 1950, providing the highest quality emergency services and delivering uncompromising customer satisfaction.
Some furnace issues can wait, but in Minnesota, you need to contact us immediately if you have no heat in frigid temperatures, have a carbon monoxide alert, or have a gas leak from your furnace. We’ll be there, day or night, to get your heater back up and running.
There are various reasons why central heating systems break down. Some of the most common reasons include:
Clogged air filter: Overly dirty or dusted air filters will block the furnace’s or heat pump’s airflow. Be sure to change or clean the filter at least every three months.
Ignition failure or fuel supply problems: Your furnace or boiler may be experiencing ignition issues if the gas line to the system is shut off, interrupted, or leaking. If the ignition sensor or pilot light doesn’t work, the system will shut down as a safety measure to stop releasing flammable gas.
Tripped circuit breaker: If your heater shuts off suddenly, check your home’s circuit breaker panel to see if it is tripped. If so, you need to switch it back into position to restore power to your heating system. If this issue only occurs on occasion, it isn’t something to worry about. However, if the breaker trips frequently, you should consult the Genz-Ryan team.
Thermostat failure: The thermostat could be your problem if the system is set to “cool” or “on” when instead it should be set to “heat.” If the thermostat is unresponsive or incorrect, you may need thermostat repair or replacement.

What are your most common furnace problems?
At Genz-Ryan, our most common heating problems that we encounter include faulty thermostats, igniter failures, thermocouple failures, dirty flame sensors, sooty burners, faulty fan limiters, faulty capacitors, and clogged filters. All of these are relatively minor and inexpensive to repair.
Can a cracked heat exchanger be repaired?
Because of the constant heat cycling that a heat exchanger must endure, once it’s damaged, it often cannot be repaired due to the deterioration of the surrounding metal. Installing a new heating system is often the most cost-effective option.
