John McCarthy Sr. - Owner
John McCarthy Sr.
The roots of McCarthy’s One Hour couldn’t be more humble. In fact, John McCarthy Sr. was let go in 1970 from his first job with a small air conditioner repair company – for refusing to overcharge a customer.
What would McCarthy do next? He turned to his wife Mary Kay and his visiting mother-in-law for a suggestion: “You’re a smart guy John,” his mother-in-law said. “Why not start your own business?”
John took the advice. Armed with only $200 in working capital and an old rusty truck he purchased from his banker, he set out to serve the heating, air conditioning and overall home comfort needs of Omaha residents.
Success would be a challenge, but John wasn’t alone in his efforts. Mary Kay was with him every step of the way, taking phone calls and setting appointments to keep her husband busy. Together, they worked long hours, paid careful attention to details, and followed a simple motto that remains a focal point of the company today: “Urgency and accountability: every detail is important, and it’s everybody’s job to get it right.”
Their dedication and hard work paid off. After 37 years of growth and several company acquisitions, McCarthy’s One Hour is the leading heating and cooling company in the Omaha area. John McCarthy Sr. still plays an integral role in the company’s management and direction, and Mary Kay remains the manager of the call center. The company is made up of 36 employees, 20 service trucks and two locations designed strategically to serve customers in the most efficient and timely manner possible.
At McCarthy’s One Hour, our technicians are specially trained and certified to correct problems throughout your entire home comfort system. But before any work begins, we pride ourselves in taking the time to thoroughly diagnose the problem, and provide you with the right solution based on your needs and budget. Before any work begins, we’ll make sure you have a thorough understanding of the problem, your options, and the cost associated with each.
