Every year, I look for a deserving company to donate to, and this past summer, I found a small indoor comfort business to donate to.
What fascinated me was the backstory of how the air conditioning business came to be. It all started with the founder at his mother’s garage. He was just 23 years when he decided he could run a company and grow it to become a renowned one in his town. The founder had just graduated from the Institute of cooling industry and found himself jobless. To responsibly pass the time, he decided to help his neighbors with air quality. When he successfully carried out air conditioning repair on his neighbor’s multi-split air conditioning, he was confident that he would help more neighbors increase the indoor comfort of their homes. Gradually he grew his confidence and learned more about air conditioning and quality air conditioners. Soon the founder, Mr. Johnson, employed more air conditioning technicians to help him with the HVAC installations. When the pandemic died, he opened a store at the heart of town and employed an air conditioning provider to sell the few units he had acquired, including all types of thermostats. After graduating as an a/c serviceman, Mr. Johnson has become the CEO of a growing company. The story inspired me, and I decided to invest in the business. A year later, I returned to find out how he had used my investment, and I was proud of him. He had started a training program so his novice employees would perfect their HVAC maintenance skills. The first cohort had just graduated when I came back. I was so impressed that I injected more money into the business. I am looking forward to seeing what he does with this money.
