Why Oliver Is Different Than Other Contractors

HVAC service company

At Oliver Heating & Cooling, we take pride in being different than other contractors. For more than 40 years, we’ve been one of the most trusted names in the area and we plan on keeping it that way. Find out what our HVAC service company has to offer.

A Unique History

At Oliver, our company didn’t start like most others. In fact, we have a very unique story behind our founding, and it has to do with a church prayer meeting. When Joe Oliver was downsized from Boeing Helicopter Division toward the end of the Vietnam War, he was left unemployed and needed to find a way to support his wife and six sons.

After he shared his concerns with his church prayer group, one member suggested he open an HVAC business. Even though Joe had no experience in HVAC, he decided to follow the suggestion and opened Oliver Heating & Cooling in 1971. Joe was dedicated to the industry and attended night classes and worked 14-hour days. The hard work paid off and years later, Oliver is the successful business that it is today.

Extensive Training

Our HVAC business knows how important training is, and that’s why each and every one of our contractors goes through an extensive program to earn their NATE Certification (the highest certification in the industry). This ensures that their workmanship is both professional and trustworthy. In addition, our employees must complete our Character-First Program that teaches them how to build a culture of integrity, resolve conflict, encourage employee morale, and more.

Our Hires

At Oliver, we don’t just hire anyone with a background in HVAC or plumbing. We carefully select each of our employees based on personality, experience, and background. We perform thorough background checks and drug screenings on every applicant and make sure they have the right qualities to fit our high standards. You know when you call Oliver, you’ll get friendly, reliable service.

The Latest Equipment

As technology gets more innovative, so does the need for the latest equipment. Our company trucks and vans are always fully stocked with the tools needed to get nearly any job done. Whether it’s a simple repair or an entire replacement, we’re always ready to help.

Customer Satisfaction

Since we opened our doors in 1971, we’ve been satisfying homeowners and business professionals throughout the Delaware Valley and beyond. Our customers, both old and new, count on us for a variety of services and we’re happy to help with the most professional and affordable options. Our expertise and friendly attitudes are what keep people coming back of years on end.

Employee Benefits

At Oliver, our employees are an incredibly important aspect of our business, so we make sure to treat them right. We offer 100% medical coverage, a 401k program, workman’s compensation insurance, life insurance, and more. After all, happy employees mean a better business.

We’d love to show you exactly what makes us different from other contractors, so whether you have a small problem or a big issue, give us a call today. We’d be happy to help.
