If you are considering ways to efficiently cut electrical costs with solar, geothermal or other energy saving features, North Central Iowa Service, LLC of Humboldt can get you hooked right up –literally.

Mitch Fridolfson, owner of North Central Iowa Service LLC said the company offers a wide range of plumbing, heating, electrical, fireplace, solar, geothermal services and more.


Fridolfson said a solar system can be installed to help reduce or even eliminate electrical costs and are available for both residential and commercial buildings.

Ideal candidates for solar, he said are those with ample southern facing spaces where trees and shade is avoided.

Installation can either be done in ground or roof mount systems.

Fridolfson said his team is available to come out and assess a site and will also assist customers with forms required for hookup through the electrical companies as well as assisting customers on obtaining their tax credits.

Solar, he said is also very durable, making it able to withstand harsh environments.

“It can withstand hail, the maintenance is very little –there are no moving parts,” Fridolfson said.


Fridolfson said geothermal is another energy saving product they offer.

“It is basically using the ground as a heat and cooling source,” he said. “It’s anywhere from 300 to 500 percent efficient.”

Geothermal can be installed into new as well as existing construction and is ideal for both residential and commercial buildings as well.

In addition to not burning fossil fuels to heat or cool your home, water, etc. Fridolfson said the system is kept indoors so none of the equipment is out in the elements.

LED lighting

Replacing older style lighting to utilize LED lighting is another energy saving service offered by North Central Iowa Service LLC.

“We install in new constriction or can replace old fixtures with LED. It costs less than half to run –depending on the fixture, sometimes even less than that,” he said, adding the life expectancy of LED is quite longer versus traditional light bulbs.
