Meet Our Team
The team here at Custom Climates realizes that most people only think of their “heating and cooling guy” when something is wrong with their system or their family/friend’s system is in trouble. We appreciate it when our customers refer to us as their “guy”, because that is our approach and that is how we treat our customers, with the familiarity of a friend but never forgetting the top notch quality service and communication our customers deserve.
Know who you are talking to… Meet our team below and put a face to the name even before we ever come out to your place.
Jonathon started Custom Climates in 2007 with just his tools and a van… and of course, Dee, his puppy in the van with him daily. Some of our long time customers remember when Jon used to do everything from the quote, to invoicing, answering the phones, doing the installs, and servicing for years to follow. The company has grown to be more than Jon could have imagined and although he can’t be involved in every step of the process, he continues to have his thumb on the pulse of the day to day.
Jonathon also continues to be very active in his volunteer work and always works hard to help others in any way he can.
