Residential & Commercial Heating Services

Iowa winters are bitterly cold, so it is essential to have a heating solution for your home or business that is both efficient and economical. Not only will the heating system you install keep you warm, it will also prevent pipes from freezing and bursting when the temperatures drop, which can cost thousands of dollars to repair.

If you would like more information on which heating systems are right for you, don’t hesitate to reach out to the experts of Rabe Hardware. We have the knowledge and experience necessary to answer your questions and help you find the perfect solution for your needs and budget.

What Type of System is Right for You?


Gas and oil furnaces provide maximum comfort, quiet operation and industry-leading efficiencies that can help save you hundreds of dollars in utility costs every year. Lennox furnaces combine advanced technology, engineering and sound-absorbing insulation to ensure whisper-quiet operation and long-lasting performance.

Ductless Mini-Split

Ductless Mini-Split systems make good retrofit add-ons to houses with “nonducted” heating systems or for relatively small areas. Mini-Split systems have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser, and an indoor air handling unit. A ductless mini-split is great for conditioning individual rooms and is a flexible option for zone heating.

Unit Heaters

Lennox unit heaters are designed to operate at peak performance year after year for a wide range of residential and commercial heating applications. Standard features such as the tubular heat exchanger enhance performance and reliability. Unit heaters are available in your choice of natural gas or propane with horizontal and vertical wall venting options. Experience improved comfort and thermal efficiencies up to 81%.

Radiant Tube Heaters

Gas radiant tubular heaters provide efficient radiant heating solutions for both spot and space applications. With a simple design that is easy to configure, these heating units can be direct vented or installed with a flue and are available for use with natural gas or optional propane gas.

Air Source Heat Pump

Air-source heat pumps can provide efficient heating and cooling for your home. When properly installed, an air-source heat pump can deliver one-and-a-half to three times more heat energy to a home than the electrical energy it consumes. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat rather than converting it from a fuel, like combustion heating systems do.

This vicious storm passed through Iowa. Our house lost power. By the fourth day, every place I called had me looking at at least a week’s wait time for electricians to hook the meter back to the house. As I was sitting on our deck, I saw a Rabe Hardware truck drive by. Called them, and within an hour got a callback. They were just a few minutes away. Hours later, the job was done, and that night we had power again. Big shoutout to Rabe, I really appreciated the fast service.

Steven Perez

We would like to thank every person at Rabe Hardware for the pleasant and professional work we received in the installation of heating, plumbing, and electrical contracting. We constructed a new home in 2005, after visiting with Jake Rabe. We took his suggestion and installed a geothermal unit. It surpassed all expectations, both in comfort and operating cost. The help with electrical and plumbing installation was great. The products are quality, the staff is superb, and the service exceptional. It was a very good experience.

Denny & Wendy

My wife and I started investigating the potential for a house solar system in late April. Jake and Rabe Hardware was one of several providers that we contacted for consideration. By far, they were the most responsive of all the companies we considered. They came to the house, got us educated, and provided a quote before most others even got back to us.

The Rabe price was the most competitive and provided the best solution, with high-quality components. Their team had our system (30 panels) installed in 4 hours while working with/around our roofer, who was finishing the installation of a new metal roof! They submitted and completed all of the paperwork and we are off and running!

Please consider Rabe first if you want a reliable, cost-effective solar solution done right!

This is the first time I have used Rabe Hardware. Allen and Josh installed a gas insert fireplace in my home yesterday. I could not have been happier. They were professional, polite, and most importantly, knowledgeable. I was so impressed that I will use them exclusively in the future.

Word of mouth is the best advertising which is how I came to find out about Rabe Hardware and is why I am writing this review. I promise you will not be disappointed using them.

Steve Bagenstos

My wife and I moved to Shellsburg, Iowa, this past summer. The home we purchased had solar panels that we knew nothing about. One of Rabe Hardware’s representatives stopped by not long after we moved in, as our panels were offline. He had us up and running in no time at all. He got us set up with the online app and gave a quick and easy tutorial.

Then, just days later, we found ourselves in the same situation as many in our area due to Hurricane Derecho. Jake Rabe and his team responded before anyone else! They laid out what needed to be done and completed it with the same speed and excellence as before.I am so impressed with this company, from the owner to all his team members.
