Tell us a little about your business.
We specialize in the maintenance, repair and replacement of HVAC equipment, upgrading the efficiency of existing equipment and systems, and air quality for residential clients. Our focus is on excellence in all we do, from quality parts and workmanship to the customer service we provide. We try to do our part to make the industry what it should be and to make a positive contribution to the quality of life our customers enjoy in their homes.
How did you get started in the business?
I’ve always been the type of person who sees a problem or need and looks at it as an opportunity. Furthermore, I’d always wanted to be a business owner and had the desire to help people. In this instance, I found something in which I could apply all of those things. I identified room for growth and improvement in this industry and wanted to do things a different way, so I got involved. I not only get to help my customers but I also get to provide jobs and opportunities for my employees.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
Hiring quality people and developing them. It’s a challenge, but something that I’m passionate about and on which I focus a lot of my attention. It’s important to me to make sure everyone is on the same page, because how we function independently and as a team in our internal operations translates to the level of service we deliver to our customers.
Tell us a little about your family.

If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be?
