A Journey Through Time

Tropical Heating & Cooling has been a cornerstone of the Western New York community for over three decades. Our story begins in 1988 when founder John Summers, a passionate HVAC technician, decided to strike out on his own and establish a company dedicated to providing top-notch heating and cooling services to local residents.

Early Years

In the beginning, Tropical Heating & Cooling operated out of John’s garage in Wheatfield, NY. With just a single truck and a handful of loyal customers, the company slowly but surely built a reputation for reliability and expertise. As word spread about their exceptional service, the business began to grow.

Expansion and Growth

By the mid-1990s, Tropical Heating & Cooling had outgrown its humble origins. The company moved to a proper office space in North Tonawanda and expanded its service area to include:

  • Lewiston, NY
  • Grand Island, NY
  • Lockport, NY

This growth allowed the company to hire more technicians and offer a wider range of services, including:

  • Heating repair
  • Furnace replacement
  • Heater installation
  • Comprehensive HVAC maintenance

Embracing Technology

As the new millennium approached, Tropical Heating & Cooling recognized the importance of staying ahead of the curve. The company invested heavily in training its technicians on the latest HVAC technologies and energy-efficient systems. This commitment to innovation helped solidify their position as a leader in the local market.

Community Involvement

Throughout its history, Tropical Heating & Cooling has remained dedicated to giving back to the community. The company regularly participates in local charity events and offers discounted services to senior citizens and veterans.

Looking to the Future

Today, Tropical Heating & Cooling continues to thrive under the leadership of John’s daughter, Sarah Summers. With a team of over 50 skilled technicians and a fleet of modern service vehicles, the company stands ready to meet the heating and cooling needs of Western New York residents for generations to come.

As we reflect on our journey from a small garage operation to a trusted HVAC company, we remain committed to our founding principles of quality service, fair pricing, and customer satisfaction. Here’s to another 30 years of keeping our community comfortable, no matter the season!
