In 1930, H.J. Lehman began his heating and electrical business in Muncie. He located on East Main St. in the heart of the downtown area. Mr. Lehman soon became a pioneer in home heating conversion from coal to natural gas. Muncie residents were very pleased to rid themselves of the daily chore of stoking their basement furnaces and cleaning the ash residue.
H.J. Lehman soon found he needed to expand. He purchased a welding shop on West 13th Street and began to convert the quonset hut to a heating business. He moved completely to the new location in 1950. Mr. Lehman was succeeded by sons-in-law Jim Maidlow Sr. and Andy Riebe. Lehman’s, Inc. became a leader in sales and service for forced air heating and air conditioning equipment. The two men led the way in early residential and commercial central air conditioning.
Growth again required expansion, both in facilities and staff. A new general office was built in 1978. Additional warehouse and sheet metal shop facilities were added during the mid-eighties. After Jim and Andy retired, Jim Maidlow, Jr. became the owner and manager of the Muncie store.
The nineties brought new high efficiency heating and air conditioning equipment. It also has established a genuine concern for indoor air quality and timely professional service.
Today, Muncie store owners, John Primmer and Tony Swearingin, along with their staff, remain dedicated to providing professional service to residents of East Central Indiana.
Lehman’s also offers consumers and businesses the opportunity to purchase an annual maintenance agreement with special pricing. Maintenance agreements are designed to keep your heating and air conditioning system tuned up on a timely basis and can be provided for any brand of equipment. During the recent “polar vortex” and severe low temperatures, many systems failed. Regular maintenance can prevent down time, just when you need your system the most. Call Lehman’s for more information on service agreements. 765-284-9921.
