Our skilled furnace repair technicians give you an accurate, honest diagnosis of your problem, no matter what brand of furnace you own. We keep a large inventory of replacement parts on hand to help get your furnace back up and running quickly. It’s no wonder an independent survey showed a 97% customer satisfaction rating for our service.

Routine furnace maintenance and tune-ups

Routine maintenance more than pays for itself by increasing system lifespan, maximizing efficiency and identifying potential problems before they become expensive headaches. Bell Brothers precision furnace tune-ups include these services:

  • Inspect electrical components and controls
  • Clean and check heat exchanger and burners
  • Calibrate thermostat
  • Replace batteries in your programmable thermostat (once a year)
  • Oil the motor if necessary
  • Clean the unit's interior
  • Replace furnace filters (standard 1” filters)

The easiest way to keep your furnace in prime condition is to sign up for an HVAC maintenance program. Bell Brothers Comfort Club offers three levels of annual maintenance service to fit your needs and budget.

Furnace replacement and installation

The average life expectancy of furnaces in homes today is 16 to 20 years. If it becomes better to replace your furnace rather than repair it, Bell Brothers furnace experts will assess your home and existing ductwork and recommend high-efficiency replacement furnaces that are right for your home and budget.

You can count on prompt, professional service from technicians who take personal pride in achieving the perfect furnace installation. We'll even haul away your old furnace at no extra charge. The Bell Brothers home comfort experts also offer design/build consultations with you or your builder for new home construction.

Furnace humidifier repair and installation

Cold air is dry air. That’s why many of us in Iowa battle dry skin, wake up with parched airways and suffer with static electricity all winter. The best solution is often a quality, expertly installed whole-home furnace humidifier. We have also put together some DIY humidifying tips for increasing air moisture in the winter. Air with proper humidity doesn't just feel better; it can also hold more heat. That can help lower your heating bills since your furnace won’t have to work as hard to hit your comfort settings.

Another Satisfied Customer

"The whole Bell Brothers experience was amazing. I filled out an online form for a free furnace replacement estimate and got a call from LJ. We made an appointment for him to come to my house and sat and talked through our options. He was very detailed and upfront about everything and we decided to do a whole system replacement because of the great value. Maison, Loren, and John showed up the day of the appointment right on time and worked hard all day. I could not be more satisfied with the work that they did and their friendliness. They did amazing work and cleaned up more than they needed to. Bell Brothers will have my business for years to come."

Frequently Asked Questions

A typical residential install takes one working day (about eight hours).

Yes. Furnace maintenance plans have been shown to maximize performance and life span while minimizing the chances for an expensive repair later. Properly maintained furnaces:

  • Deliver up to 40% savings on heating and cooling costs compared to unmaintained systems
  • Reduce your carbon footprint by 30%
  • Help ensure proper indoor humidity levels
  • Operate safely and at peak performance
  • Minimize the chances of being inconvenienced and stressed by needing emergency service

Here are a few common reasons:

  • It can’t keep up with the cold and just runs all the time
  • The electronic system (including the thermostat) that tells it to shut off isn’t functioning
  • The furnace is off, but the fan continues to run (be sure your fan setting on your thermostat is set to “Auto”; if it’s set to “ON”, the fan will run all the time)

A big fan inside the furnace circulates the warm air around your house. If it’s not blowing, most likely either the fan motor is broken or the systems that tell it to come on are malfunctioning. Be sure the fan is set to “On” or “Auto” on your thermostat before calling for help.

There could be many reasons your furnace is not functioning, from a blown fuse in your house to a major mechanical issue. A few things to check before you call us for help:

  • Thermostat says the furnace is on; it’s easy for it to get switched off accidentally
  • The breaker in the house’s electrical box that serves your furnace hasn’t popped off
  • The filter is relatively clean; furnaces will shut themselves down if the filter is clogged

If it’s still not running right after checking all of that, give us a call.
