When did your business start?
Scott started the business in September 1987. It was incorporated in 1998 and we recently celebrated 30 years in business.
How did you get started in this business?
The business was started when Scott decided he didn’t want to be a full-time farmer, and had an interest in heating & air conditioning. After going to school to study HVAC, Scott started the business by doing it all – service calls, estimates, installs and paperwork beginning Labor Day September 1987. Five years later he brought his brother Jeff into the business. Currently we have 13 employees.
