A history of HVAC excellence

The Heating Specialist was founded in 1981 by David Brent. At the time, he was a young engineer at a career crossroads. Tired of traveling and being away from his growing family, David decided to apply his consulting background and open his own HVAC business in his hometown. His goal was to provide high-quality heating and cooling products and services paired with thorough communication backed by a 100% guaranteed free estimate policy.

Today, The Heating Specialist operates on a simple concept: hire good people and never stop training until their technical skills are exemplary. Thanks to David’s background in engineering and design, The Heating Specialist can tackle projects far beyond the capabilities of other HVAC providers.
