Heating Repair, Installation and Maintenance

How important is a reliable furnace in Iowa? Our winters are freezing, dry, windy, and long – so you need a good heating system that will keep you cozy and warm all season. Because the number of hours you’ll run your heating system is higher here than, say Texas, you’ll also want a high-efficiency system that will last longer than standard models.

High-efficiency furnaces will offer the best rebates, too.

Air Services is equipped with the most efficient systems and knowledgeable technicians who will install new equipment, replace aging units, set up routine maintenance, and respond to emergency repairs 24/7.

Types of heating systems

Furnaces & Heaters

These systems burn natural gas, propane, oil, or use electricity to heat air and use a blower to distribute that air through ductwork in your home. With Iowa’s climate, furnaces are often going to be your best option and are less expensive than other heating systems.

Heat Pumps

An air source heat pump does not use fuel to generate heat. Instead, it pulls heat from surrounding air to warm the house. They’re typically best for mild climates. A geothermal heat pump uses the earth’s energy to create heat in an environmentally efficient way.


A boiler heats water to provide hot water or steam for heating that is distributed through a series of pipes. If you’re interested in zone heating (only heating the rooms you use), this is an option to consider. But a minimum temperature is required to prevent pipes from freezing.

Package Units

These units combine heating and cooling systems into one and are typically located outside next to your home or on the roof, eliminating the need for a separate furnace inside. Ductwork is connected to the system through the roof or exterior wall.

High-efficiency furnaces

When choosing a furnace, keep in mind the system’s efficiency, which is measured in Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). The higher the AFUE, the less fuel you’ll need to heat your home. For example, Trane 95 and 90 gas furnaces deliver at least 90 percent efficiency, exceeding government standards.

Upgrading your furnace to a high-efficiency system for Iowa’s cold winter climate not only will save on fuel bills, but also will limit your furnace’s pollution output.

Another thing to consider: size. Your Air Services technician can ensure you have a properly sized furnace or boiler for peak efficiency.

How to Improve Heating Efficiency

  • Make sure your home is properly insulated so heat doesn’t escape
  • Lock the windows to reduce the warm air escaping your home
  • Make sure all heating vents are clear of obstruction
  • Lower the thermostat when hosting many guests
  • Use a programmable thermostat to set the temperature lower while you are away or asleep
  • Clean filters and replace them according to manufacturer recommendations
  • Schedule routine maintenance to keep your heating system at peak efficiency

Take advantage of Air Services’ maintenance agreements and have peace of mind knowing that your HVAC systems are being maintained properly by knowledgeable professionals – at the right time of year.
