Comfort Club Year-round Maintenance

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 an energy-efficient replacement furnace that is 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 for heating your home. 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 from 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.

"Highly recommend Bell Brothers! I’ve used them for over 10 years, and they have always been reliable, professional, knowledgeable & great quality. I recently had a full system replacement & they were wonderful. When my furnace went out, they even came out within the hour & got my furnace running for the couple of days before my replacement appointment. Excellent customer service!"

- Kelly P.

"Alex did a great job of quickly fixing our issue but also took the time to give us excellent advice! Bell brothers responded with a repair person the same day I called. I highly recommend them for all your HVAC needs."

- John K.

"I have been a Bell Brothers customer for over 30 years, for both residential and commercial needs. I have always felt I received fair treatment, good service and quality installations. I have never been "oversold," which I know can happen elsewhere. The most recent install was handled beautifully and the crew cleaned up after themselves. They took the time to explain the system and help me set up my thermostat. I plan to be a customer as long as I am treated this way!"

- Sheree C.

"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."

"We have used Bell Brothers Heating and Cooling for many years in 2 different homes. 3 years ago they did a total HVAC system replace when we moved into our current home. They do a thorough job with the twice a year system maintenance they conduct. Today's maintenance we had done was completed by their technician Aidas and he was very courteous and answered all my questions. I highly recommend them for any heating and cooling needs."

"I've done business with Bell Brothers for years and have never been disappointed with their service. Adis is fantastic! We were first introduced to him 1 year ago when he came to our house for furnace maintenance and we've requested him since. A great communicator, he explained things thoroughly. Highly professional and very personable. Adis is a credit to Bell Brothers. We will continue to use Bell Brothers and will always ask for Adis."

- Denise W.

"Our heat stopped working on Thursday night in the middle of the blizzard. We initially thought it was just having trouble keeping up but realized, when we woke up Friday morning to a 57° house, that it was not working. We called Bell Brothers and Ryan came out first thing the next morning (CHRISTMAS EVE). He was prompt, professional, and did exceptional work. He was thorough in diagnosing the problem and then made a separate trip to pick up a new exhaust fan motor and came back and installed it immediately 😲. Thanks to Bell Brothers, and Ryan’s willingness to work on Christmas Eve, we will have a cozy Christmas. ❤️💚"

- John H.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to install a furnace and air conditioner?

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.

Bell Brothers services all brands of furnaces and air conditioners.
