Al Lenz – General Manager
I am an Iowa native who has worked in the Heating and Cooling Industry around the Des Moines area for a number of years. After serving my country in the Marine Corps for four years, I attended DMACC for plumbing, high and low-pressure boilers, and electrical.
I continued my education at Vatterott College where I studied heating, cooling, and refrigeration. I graduated at the top of my class with honors. I then worked my way up through the ranks. I began as a Service Technician/Installer; then Service Manager, Operations Manager, and finally General Manager. I gained a wealth of knowledge on heating and cooling, business knowledge, and my favorite, customer service.
In 2009, I embarked on my mission: To own and operate the perfect heating and cooling company. You will see I focus on building relationships to make lifelong customers, not making money. You deserve the best customer service at an affordable price.
I carry an Iowa Masters License in HVAC, Heating and Cooling, Refrigeration, and Hydronics. I am Licensed, Bonded and Insured.
I specialize in offering the very best customer service in the Des Moines areas of Heating, Air Conditioning, Ventilation, and Refrigeration for Residential Homes and Commercial Businesses.
I am the owner of one of the fastest-growing heating and cooling companies in the Des Moines area. All I ask for is one service call, one invitation to your home or business. I want to earn your trust.
