Our Story

It was a journey that began with a boy unloading coal in North Dakota, but it is one that has taken William A. Bednarz to the ownership of Kelly Heating in Iowa City. 

The next big destination in William's journey?  Retirement!  So he says... but that won't be any time soon for this familiar Iowa City business. Bill was born in Rugby, North Dakota, and attended North Dakota State University. He and his wife Linda have two children, Renee and Ryan. 

Bill started working in Iowa City in 1972 as owner of Hawkeye Refrigeration. He subsequently then purchased Kelly Heating and in 1995 moved the business to 1936 S. Riverside Drive. In 2013 they moved into their new office building at 1910 S. Riverside Drive. The business now carries a complete line of heating and air conditioning products to keep families comfortable for countless years to come.   

Bill's philosophy in his work and his life? "Do the best you can."  It has stood him -- and Kelly Heating's customers -- in good stead! 

The motto at Kelly Heating has been “Quality that exceeds our customer’s expectations” and that is certainly true with all of Kelly’s 30 plus employees.  Everyone involved with Kelly Heating has been dedicated to installing the best heating and air conditioning units in customer’s homes. 

Kelly’s technicians are trained not only to treat the symptoms of your cooling and heating needs, but also to find the problem that caused the condition in the first place. Kelly’s staff continues to attend classes, to be trained for all of the new equipment and develop skills in troubleshooting at least once a year.
