NORWALK, Conn. — HomeServe USA announced the acquisition of Birmingham, Alabama-based Worry Free Comfort Systems Inc., known locally as Freedom Heating and Cooling (Freedom). Freedom is HomeServe’s first HVAC acquisition in Alabama.
Freedom, which has an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, has been serving residential customers in northern Alabama since 2003.
“Freedom’s impressive commitment to high-quality service is among the many things that led us to bring them into the HomeServe family,” said HomeServe North America CEO John Kitzie. “Currently they serve customers throughout Jefferson County, the most populous county in the state, as well as neighboring counties, and we are excited to partner with them to help them accelerate their growth.”
This is HomeServe’s first acquisition in the southeastern U.S., second overall in 2020, and HomeServe’s eighth acquisition in the trades since 2017. HomeServe’s locally branded companies now operate in Alabama, Arizona, Maryland, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia.
“I’m excited that Don, his wife Bonnie, and the entire Freedom team of more than 50 employees are now part of HomeServe,” said Rob DiPietro, managing director, HVAC at HomeServe. “Working with them, we look forward to continuing their track record of exceptional customer service their customers have come to expect.”
