Comfort & Energy Savings Since 1979

Rabe Hardware has been a family owned and operated company located in Blairstown, Iowa since it was founded in 1979.  It began as the local hardware store and has since grown into a full-service home mechanical company; providing solar, geothermal, electrical, plumbing, HVAC and indoor air quality services.  Now in its second generation, Rabe Hardware has added a second location in Vinton, Iowa and has become east central Iowa’s most trusted service company.   We specialize in designing, engineering, and installing complete comfort systems for owners of existing homes and buildings just like yours.

Over several decades Rabe Hardware has developed close relationships with our suppliers, which allows us to offer a wide selection of high quality products at a lower cost.  As a family owned and operated company we believe that each one of our employees becomes a member of our extended family.  And when we say family, we mean family.  Because of this our employees take ownership in our company and work hard to make your experience with us worry and hassle-free.  Here at Rabe Hardware we all work with one goal in mind – to make our company the best service company in East Central Iowa.  We have a technician on call 24 hours a day – 365 days a year to meet your emergency service needs.  Rabe Hardware is your home comfort headquarters!
