I was intrigued when I first heard about the Post 9/11 Veterans Tools Award. I learned that the Award aids veterans entering the HVAC industry by supplying them with $1,000 worth of essential tools. This helps tremendously because the veterans would otherwise be forced to buy these necessities themselves without such an endowment.
I discovered that Ken Goodrich is the sponsor of the Award and owner of Goettl Air Conditioning. He has found over the course of career that military personnel often become excellent employees as a direct result of the skills they learned through the armed forces. I agree with his assessment as I have discovered this to be true about the military servicemen (and women) that I have had the pleasure of working with in my own career. I was relieved to see that the Award will be given out annually rather than being just a one-time event and it is currently in its second year.
I learned that the current winner of the Award is Nick Hughes. His career included seven years of service in the Navy as a cook and will imminently graduate from a two-year technical education in the applied science in air conditioning technology program. I was not surprised at all to discover that Mr. Goodrich also generously sponsors the “Son of a Gun” Scholarship which is awarded to a current student of a multiple generation family in the air-conditioning industry.
I like that Goettl Air Conditioning has a long track-record of quality service since it has been in business since 1939. Goettl specializes in providing air-conditioning, heating, indoor air quality augmentation, and energy-efficiency-maximizing technologies for both residential and commercial clients. Mr. Goodrich acquired the company a few years ago and has since opened a satellite branch in the Las Vegas area. Goettl serves customers in Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas, and throughout southern California areas according to its LinkedIn profile. I can see according Goettl’s CrunchBase profile that the company is active on both Facebook and Twitter.
I believe that it is important to do business only with companies that have a great reputation and was not surprised at all to see that that Goettl Air Conditioning has a stellar one. I can tell that Mr. Goodrich is committed to continuing the positive legacy that Goettl is know for by reviewing all of the positive reviews the company has been awarded by Facebook fans. Upon performing a search on the Better Business Bureau’s website I was pleased to discover that Goettl enjoys an A+ rating which is the highest possible score. I am impressed to see the quality of Goettl’s products as evidenced by this YouTube video which demonstrates a Goettl heat pump working quite well even after 25 years of service.
