HOUSTON — Direct Energy announced its acquisition of T.A. Kaiser Heating & Air Inc., a multi-city HVAC installation, repair, and maintenance company for residential new construction properties. Based in Indianapolis, Kaiser Heating & Air has office locations in Indianapolis, Charlotte, Raleigh, and Nashville, and will become part of Direct Energy’s Airtron division, a HVAC services provider for residential new construction in various U.S. regions.

“As we look for opportunities to broaden our customer base and strengthen our capabilities in U.S. residential new construction HVAC services, Kaiser Heating & Air fit the bill in terms of size and service locations we were looking to acquire,” said Mark Baker, senior vice president, Direct Energy North America Field Operations. “We anticipate a smooth transition that will not affect current customers and look forward to welcoming Kaiser Heating & Air employees into the Airtron family."

Kaiser Heating & Air was founded in 1987 by Tim Kaiser and was subsequently owned and operated by his son, Chris Kaiser. Kaiser Heating & Air has established many local and regional homebuilder relationships, growing its footprint across the Midwest into four major metropolitan areas.

“We are thrilled to become part of Direct Energy, one of the largest retail energy and service providers in North America, and look forward to integrating our best practices with theirs to provide the best customer service we can,” said Chris Kaiser, president, Kaiser Heating & Air.
