About Official Heating & Cooling
Official Heating & Cooling was founded in 1986. In 2011, the business was purchased by Adam & Cheryl Kern, after extensive research of area companies. Adam brings 35 years of experience in the HVAC industry and Cheryl has over 20 years of experience in customer relations. An existing relationship with the former owners offered the comfort level with the business that allowed the Kerns to move forward and acquire the business. In the past, Official Heating & Cooling specialized in new construction. Adam and Cheryl’s vision — and key to success to date is to notify the homeowners of their service capabilities to keep their HVAC systems operating at peak performance.
Our endeavor is to better serve our customers. We have made several acquisitions over the last 2 years to increase our customer base and be able to service a larger area. In 2013, we acquired ACME Heating, a 65-year-old company located in Wheeling. They serviced the north shore and northwest suburbs. In 2014, we acquired Biewer Heating and Air Conditioning Co., a 35-year-old company out of Elgin. Chicago Magazine rated Biewer as one of the top HVAC companies in the Chicago area. In 2015, we acquired Active Air Plus. A 15-year-old company located in Palatine. These unions have been very well received and the expanded service area offers numerous benefits to the entire service area.
