Wm. Price Heating & Cooling was established in 1937 by William “Bill” Price and E.J. “Jim” McKernan. Wm. Price Heating and Cooling continues to supply heating and cooling equipment over an 81-year span and services to homeowners and businesses throughout the Mahoning Valley. The oldest CARRIER dealer in the area and a CARRIER Factory Authorized Dealer, shows off the experience embedded in this family business.
Wm. Price Heating & Cooling has remained family-owned into a third generation of the McKernan family in this competitive HVAC industry and continues to service many homeowners who are also second and third generation customers. The McKernans (Bill and Linda, with son Chris) attribute the success of the company over the years to four initiatives that Price practices every day:
- Deliver quality service and products at a fair price
- Maintain a competitive advantage by offering new products
- Continue to practice training and best management strategies
- Market aggressively; put the customer first in everything you do
Employee longevity is a good gauge of a successful operation for any company . For a service company like Price, it’s critical. Price service technicians are the first (and often the only) point of contact between the customer and the company. System installers must be able to conform the new equipment to operate properly in any home. Experience, communication, and customer satisfaction fall squarely on the shoulders of Price employees when working in a home. Price Heating’s 13 employees have a combined 205 years of experience with the company—a statistic that manifests itself in customer loyalty and satisfaction!
Not only does Price Heating operate its own business and meet the demands and expectations of a large base of loyal customers, but the company also takes time to support Habitat for Humanity through the donation of HVAC supplies and equipment, along with contributing to the Second Harvest Food Bank and the Girard High School Robotic Team, while donating to United Way and other area charities. When it comes to the heating and cooling system in your home, you can trust Price to deliver quality service, fair pricing, and unbeatable customer satisfaction.
Wm. Price Heating & Cooling was honored to receive the 2017 BBB Torch Award, which recognizes local organizations that demonstrate trust and ethics in business.
