Air Conditioner Installation, Repair and Maintenance

Aspen Aire has been providing expert air conditioner repairs, installation, maintenance and replacement in Des Moines, Ankeny and all of central Iowa since 2006.

AC Repairs

If your air conditioner isn’t putting out cold air or it makes strange sounds like grinding or squealing, contact us for service. Other signs that a repair may be needed include reduced performance, water pooling around the system, odd smells or reduced airflow from the ducts. Our experienced HVAC technicians will work to quickly diagnose the problem and then provide you with the best, most cost-effective repair options.

We service all AC brands and we’re here for emergency repairs 24 hours a day seven days a week.

Air Conditioner Tune-Ups

One of the best ways to prevent the inconvenience and expense of an air conditioner breakdown at the height of summer is to have an annual AC tune-up. We recommend getting your air conditioner cleaned and tested in early spring each year. A well-maintained AC unit will cool your home more efficiently, save on operating costs and have a longer lifespan.   

Schedule your AC tune-up before the start of the summer cooling season to ensure it will be ready when the warm weather arrives.

New AC Unit Installation

If it’s time to replace your air conditioner or you’re building a new house, we can install a new model from Carrier, Amana or Rheem. These are not only high-quality brands; they also each have several energy-efficient options.

Before we recommend the best new furnace for your needs, we’ll take measurements and talk to you about any issues you’re having with your current AC. Then, we’ll provide you with the list of air conditioners that are sized for your home and would meet your cooling needs. Financing is available to make the process easier, and you can apply right on our website.

If you have rooms that are always too cold or too hot, or you have concerns about the air quality in your home, we can recommend solutions. This is also a good time to install a new thermostat that will add smart technology or automation to your HVAC system. Whatever your concerns are with your current cooling system, we’ll provide solutions to address them.

Do you know how well YOUR furnace is working? Mine was fine. It heated the house. We were warm. All was good.

I had Aspen Aire come just for a service check. I knew my furnace was older because it came with the house and we’ve lived there for 13 years. We were prepared that eventually it would stop working and we would need to replace it. But it couldn’t hurt to have a check up.

Until the day  we got the news that our furnace was leaking a lot of carbon monoxide into our house. No, I didn’t have a detector in my house. We were advised to immediately make plans to replace our furnace. And sleep with the furnace off. And get a carbon monoxide detector that night. Can you imagine the fear we were riddled with?

I have no idea how long this has been going on. What I do know, is that I haven’t felt ‘good’ in an extremely long time. From headaches, to being dizzy and nauseous, I have felt off for months. (I mean seriously I can’t remember the last time I felt good.) But the headaches have  just been out of control for the last year. My daughter has been a different person as well. Our whole house has been out of whack. I can’t say that this is the root of it all, but I can speculate.

When we got the news, Aspen Aire was there for us. They also found that our hot water heater was leaking and it was time to replace that. So we found all of this out on Wednesday, and today they are at my house.  Right now we are installing a new furnace, AC unit and hot water unit. It’s money we hadn’t planned on spending right now, but I look at it like it’s an investment in our home and our health.

If we decide to sell our house, these upgrades will be important to a potential buyer. But I think the peace of mind knowing we will wake up in the morning is all I need. This was a huge wake up call for my family.

It really is worth it to get your furnace checked. A simple service check up from Aspen Aire could give you peace of mind, and maybe even end up saving a life. People die from carbon monoxide poisoning. I just feel lucky that it wasn’t my family.
