Happy employees equal happy customers and successful HVAC leaders recognize this better than most. The industry’s best contractors understand that high-quality employees deserve more than just a paycheck. They crave a career, complete with good pay, benefits, and growth opportunities.

The NEWS is proud to once again honor some of the industry’s best leaders in its annual Best Contractor to Work For contest.

Four HVAC contractors, located in four regions of the U.S., represent this year’s class. They’ve created workplaces that demonstrate care and commitment to both employees and customers, cultivate and train employees, and offer growth opportunities and retirement planning to plot a successful future, both professionally and personally.

Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning (Cedar Lake, Indiana), the North Central region winner, devotes itself to employee satisfaction, charitable efforts, and growth opportunities.

Gold Medal Service (East Brunswick, New Jersey), which represents the East region, is committed to training, employee health, and satisfaction.

Sky Heating & Air Conditioning (Portland, Oregon), the West region winner, strives to treat its employees and customers with care and offers a number of benefits, including tools for its technicians, paid training, use of company vehicles, and more.

Reliable Heating & Air (Kennesaw, Georgia), a large volume residential contracting company, took home the honors in the South. Reliable manages to retain a personal touch and commitment to every employee and customer.
