Regan One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning Adds National Plumbing Brand

05/16/17

PROVIDENCE, RI (May 16, 2017) – Locally owned and operated Regan Heating and Air Conditioning, which has been serving Rhode Island and Southeastern New England for nearly 50 years, recently joined forces with One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® (One Hour), part of the Direct Energy family of brands. Regan’s One Hour is also now offering plumbing services under the Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® (Benjamin Franklin) name, another Direct Energy brand.

“Expanding their reach through Benjamin Franklin is a huge asset for the community and for the local economy,” said Mark Baker, President of Franchise, Direct Energy. “Customers will have another home services industry at their fingertips, with a company that has steadfast commitment to exceptional customer service.”

Longtime East Greenwich residents Terry and Joyce Regan founded the HVAC business in 1973, and their son Matt Regan will continue to serve as owner and general manager. By becoming part of the Benjamin Franklin franchise, the family-owned and operated business will be able to continue training staff with the best resources, offer 24/7 services, provide stronger warranties and guarantees, and lower product costs.

“We are excited to offer plumbing home services to the Providence and surrounding communities,” said Owner Terry Regan. “Now, by being a part of One Hour, Benjamin Franklin and the Direct Energy family, we are able to take our service to the next level and offer more services, resources and benefits to our customers.”

One Hour and Benjamin Franklin have independently owned and operated locations throughout North America. The companies recently earned their highest rankings to date in the 2017 Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list. One Hour ranked No. 1 in the HVAC services category, and Benjamin Franklin ranked No. 2 in the plumbing services category.
