HVAC.com is an online store that sells heating and cooling, ventilation and air and water supplies, as well as water heaters and other miscellaneous HVAC parts and supplies. It allows homeowners to purchase HVAC systems over the Internet and find contractors interested in bidding on the installation of those systems. Founded by Will Housh in 2006, the site has its headquarters in Monroe, Ohio.

History

The Housh family began their heating and cooling company, Monroe Heating, in 1954 in Monroe, Ohio in William (Bill) M. Housh II’s garage. Having grown up in the business, in 2006 Will Housh, a third-generation member of the HVAC business, opened an online store, now called HVAC.com.[1] Will then went on to buy the family business in 2008 from his father, William McKinley Housh III. In 2012, he sold the family business to focus entirely on the new e-commerce enterprise, with the mission to provide a better, simpler HVAC buying experience for the busy homeowners who needs a quick solution for their HVAC needs. The HVAC.com website offers a wide range of trade related products such as air filters, humidifiers, heating and cooling equipment and more.[2]

Mission Statement To transform the way people purchase products that improve their comfort, health, and happiness, as we transform the lives of orphans and widows.

Environmental Policy HVAC.com donates gently used, damaged or returned products to People Working Cooperatively (PWC), a charity that uses the items to provide higher quality of living to elderly, low income, and disabled homeowners. The company also recycles materials such as cardboard and scrap metal, recycling roughly 100,000 pounds of cardboard in 2013.
