Success didn’t come easy to Mike Douglas of Northlake, founder and CEO of Advent Air Conditioning of Lewisville.
As Contracting Business magazine reports in this month’s cover profile, “Advent Air Conditioning’s story is one of a special kind of endurance and initiative. It’s about what comes from making difficult but necessary decisions, and doing what it takes to remain a leader in tough times. It’s about knowing what a business needs to grow, and investing in its success.”
As a result of Douglas’ perseverance, and an uncompromising commitment to quality, honesty and integrity, Advent Air has just been named the 2014 Residential HVAC Contractor of the Year. It’s arguably the most prestigious national honor in the industry. Advent Air was selected from a pool of more than 65,000 HVAC contractors across the country.
Founded by Douglas in 1981, Advent has weathered several economic downturns and other unique challenges over the years but never wavered from its founding principles. The company is now one of the brightest stars in its industry. Advent Air specializes in residential HVAC for new construction, replacement and service, in addition to commercial new construction and replacement.
“Today, [Mike] and his family — wife Tammi, sons Jared and Adam, and daughter Brittany — and a mighty team of managers, are making quality service and installations by Advent Air Conditioning one of life’s few remaining guarantees,” says Contracting Business.
Advent boasts 60 professional employees, including 13 certified field technicians. Douglas is a strong believer in continuing education and training, which he frequently attends himself, along with his staff. Every Advent Air technician is certified by North American Technician Excellence (NATE), a leading HVAC certification program.
“This national honor is both humbling and motivating,” said Douglas. “It’s a testament to the professionalism, integrity and commitment to customer service excellence of every member of the Advent Air team. I’m very pleased that all our hard work has been recognized with this prestigious award.”
