In March 1989, Mike entered the Army after successful completion of basic training and aviation mechanics training. Shortly after, he was sent overseas to Germany, where he served as a CH-47 Chinook helicopter repairman and crew member. Following that assignment, Mike was deployed to Operations Desert Shield and Storm, where his unit supported the 7th Army Corp invasion of Iraq. In 1992, Mike was honorably discharged and began his HVAC career shortly thereafter.
Mike started out as a residential and light commercial installer, but felt the urge to further expand and hone his skills, thus leading him to attend two separate trade schools specializing in troubleshooting. Mike pursued a career in industrial HVAC equipment, specifically in chillers, refrigeration, building automation and process cooling.
In 2005, Mike achieved his Texas HVAC contractors license and purchased his own HVAC service and replacement company with his father, Bill. Two years later, Mike completed his NATE certification and now specializes in helping homeowners find the right system for their homes and solve comfort issues other companies deem “unsolvable.”
