DECATUR, Ga. — Martin Hoover, owner of Decatur-based Empire Heating and Air Conditioning Inc., was recently awarded the 2020 Distinguished Service Award by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA).

Each year, ACCA presents the Distinguished Service Award to a volunteer who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in service and distinguished him or herself in a manner that calls for additional recognition.

According to ACCA, Hoover was selected for this honor due to his high energy and enthusiasm to help ACCA and its members be better businesspeople by becoming more active in the industry. He has served on the ACCA board of directors for three years and is currently the chairman for the membership committee.

“It is an honor to be recognized for this award in the company of so many other skilled and dedicated ACCA and HVAC industry peers,” Hoover said. “I am humbled and grateful for this acknowledgement.”

For 35 years, Hoover has owned and operated Empire, a local heating and cooling company servicing metro Atlanta areas in Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, Forsyth, and Gwinnett counties.
