Local Family Starts New Business Bringing Relief to Neighbors

After working as an engineer in the air conditioning industry for decades, local resident opens an air conditioning and heating franchise and recruits his family to join the team.

Yorba Linda, CA (July 30, 2015) – After more than two decades designing complex air conditioning systems for large companies, the military and the defense industry, Ernie Garcia was ready for the next adventure in life. He decided to take his years of experience and put it to work serving the cooling and heating needs of his neighbors. Garcia used his engineering background as he researched the best company to align with. He chose One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating®, a national franchise with independently owned and operated locations across North America. “I wanted to be able to offer my customers the benefit of local service backed by a national company. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, an on-time guarantee and we can offer a wide range of financing options, protection plans plus cutting edge equipment and solutions that others cannot,” said Garcia.

Joining Garcia is his son, Edgar, who is the operations manager; his nephew Joseph, who is the home comfort adviser; and his wife Lety, who will work in inventory and human resources. His oldest son is a captain in the United States Air Force, serving in Iraq, and will help at the family business when he is home on leave. Garcia employs other technicians who are proud military veterans as well. “I was born in California and have been a part of this community for almost 30 years. We raised our sons here and we are committed to offering the best service to our neighbors. When it’s hot and your air conditioning is not working properly, it’s a stressful situation. We’re that trusted partner you can count on to deliver relief and help,” added Garcia.

The company will focus on air conditioning and heating repairs, maintenance and replacement. They also offer the latest, state of the art equipment for testing indoor air quality, duct work and ventilation. They will serve customers in Yorba Linda, Anaheim Hills, Villa Park, the city of Orange, Corona and Eastvale.

“We are proud to have Ernie, his family, and his entire team join the One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating family. They have great passion and enthusiasm. I know each time people see that bright, yellow truck they will be confident they are getting the best possible service,” said Mark Baker, President of Franchise.

One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating, along with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®, Mister Sparky® electric and Direct Energy Solar are all part of the Direct Energy® family of brands. For the first time, in more than a decade, the company is offering home services franchises to contractors throughout California.
