Design & Installation
Known as the most comfortable type of heating, hydronic radiant in-floor systems use embedded tubing under the floor to circulate warm water to provide low maintenance and energy-efficient heating.
These systems can use a variety of heating sources and are compatible under any type of floor covering.
From residential to commercial, large to small, the radiant in-floor specialists at Rabe Hardware will help you every step of the way. From space and heating requirements to design and installation, you can rest assured that our team has the knowledge and experience to do it right the first time!Request a Quote
Because radiant systems heat from the floor up and take only 30-60 minutes to reach the appropriate temperature, these systems consume far less energy than traditional heating solutions,
Gone are the days of hot and cold spots in your home or business! The even temperatures created by radiant heating systems will bring comfort to every corner of every space.
No Ductwork Needed
Since no ductwork is needed for radiant heating, any home or business can take advantage of this solution without needing to install or maintain air ducts.
Improved Air Quality
As no ductwork is needed for radiant heating, dust and allergens will not circulate through the air vents, which results in cleaner, healthier air to breathe
Quiet Heating Capabilities
While traditional forced-air heating systems can be very noisy, radiant heat is silent. Say goodbye to the roar of a furnace or the clanging of radiators with an in-floor system!
Scalability & Flexibility
When making the decision to install radiant heating, it doesn’t have to be done all at once. We can help install in one or two rooms or an entire building - the choice is yours!

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.
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.
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.
