What’s the most interesting thing that’s happened on a job?
One night, I was checking a ventilation system in a room for an Alzheimer’s nursing home at about 9 p.m. I was in the secure lock down section of the facility alone and not able to get out while a nice elderly lady kept following me around because she thought I was her grandson. After wandering long enough, security saw me on the cameras and came to let me out.

What is your favorite thing about zone control?
Fixing the problem for customers when they complain about 2nd level bedrooms being hot and basements being cold.

What is the best thing about working with Jackson Systems?
They have a very flexible thermostat logo program that uses our logo instead of basic block letters. Jackson Systems does a great job supporting so many industry groups like Service Roundtable, ACCA and much more. Also, because they engineer and build their own products they have a great knowledge of how items work.

What do you love about your job?
We provide so many safety solutions for customers it is hard to pick, but one of the best parts is being able to get a family’s heat back on a cold, sub-zero January night.

How do you spend your time outside of work?
Most of the time is spent with my two daughters or hunting and fishing.

What is your motto?
“Creating Clean Comfortable Environments, One Customer at a Time”
