Heat Pumps

High-efficiency heat pumps for whole-home comfort

Bell Brothers Heating and Air Conditioning offers sales and service of electric heat pumps that can be an attractive alternative to traditional furnaces in some situations.

The Heat Pump Difference

An air-source heat pump (ASHP) captures heat from the outside and releases it into your home as hot air. Heat pumps can provide efficient and comfortable indoor heat even when outside air temperatures are as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit. If the outdoor temperature falls below 5° F, a second source is needed to create more heat in your home. Bell Brothers offers expert installation, fast and reliable repair, and an annual maintenance program that keeps your heat pump working at peak efficiency, winter after winter. Bell Brothers is a Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer serving customers in the Greater Des Moines area.
