GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Heartland Home Services, a Midwestern HVAC, plumbing, and electrical home services company, announced that it has acquired Blue Frost Heating & Cooling, a provider of residential HVAC services in West Chicago and surrounding suburbs. The addition of Blue Frost expands Heartland's reach throughout the Midwest.

Tom Byrne assumed ownership of Blue Frost in 2009. He brought with him a vast amount of experience as an HVAC technician and contractor.

"I have been searching for a company like Heartland for some time now — one that has the same values as we do at Blue Frost. I am very excited that the backing of Heartland will give us the ability to grow and take over the suburbs of Chicago," said Byrne. 

"Tommy and the Blue Frost team give us an opportunity to expand our footprint in the Chicagoland market, including the western suburbs. We welcome them to the Heartland family of exceptional brands. They have a first-class operation, and with Heartland's shared strength, we will continue to smash their growth goals," added Heartland CEO Bill Viveen.  

Byrne will stay on along with his management team and technicians. The business will continue to operate as normal, empowered with the additional resources from Heartland.  

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
