My name is Jeff Granius. My wife Tina and I are the proud owners of Jeff's Comfort Services LLC. I want to introduce ourselves to you, so that you know who we are and to provide you with my background in the HVAC industry. Our goal is for you to genuinely get to know us, so that your decision in using our exceptional service is made in confidence, and to assure you that you are in the right hands.
I began my apprenticeship in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning trade in 1993 based out of Clearwater, Florida. As most apprentices, I began as an installation helper for roughly 2 years working side by side with the Lead Mechanic. After that period I progressed into an Installation Mechanic. We provided installation services for Heat Pumps, Gas Furnaces, A/C only, Mini Splits, Package Units, Ductwork, Indoor Air Quality products, Ventilation and Exhaust systems, and Refrigeration equipment. From that point, I then became a Lead Mechanic and stayed with this position for 4 years while training and grooming my replacement.
During these formative years, I enrolled into Erwin Technical Center located in Tampa, Florida and spent 2 years acquiring my HVAC degree. I would work during the day and go to school at night (5 days a week and 4 hours a night). Along the way I was fortunate enough to also work by the side of an extraordinarily talented Service Technician who taught me how to wire and start the equipment that I was installing. I eventually became a Service Tech. My duties included: maintenance plan tune-ups, repair, customer service, start ups, and all other aspects of Air Conditioning and Heating. This is where I started to become a well rounded HVAC tradesman. I was able to use my installation and service experience throughout the years which lead me into the top performing Lead Service Tech. My role in this position stayed active for another 9 years with that company. During these additional 9 years, I also specialized in whole house design, duct design, equipment selection and design, load calculations, system energy performance, and sales. For 15 years I was trained and groomed by the very best in the industry.
In 2007 I moved to Asheville, North Carolina to be close with family. I took a job with one of the largest Heating and Air Conditioning companies in the area. I was quickly promoted to a Project Manager for residential and commercial new construction. I eventually became the residential new construction division manager. Our specialty was close relationship design and installation for high end custom residential homes. The types of systems I was responsible for designing and managing included: Geothermal, Radiant, Solar, ERV and HRV, Energy Star, Healthy Built, ACCA, and LEED certified applications. We also worked closely with Habitat for Humanity and other charitable organizations. This position would now qualify me as a seasoned trades member.
Tina and I met in 2011 and married 1 year later. She is a true blessing to my life and her warm spirit and heart can be felt to whomever she encounters. Her background has been in the Customer Service industry for over 20 years. We came down to Florida on vacation during some time off and realized just how much it was calling us home. After much thought and prayer, we decided to start our own Air Conditioning and Heating company in the Bradenton and Sarasota area. We decided to setup in the Lakewood Ranch area.
With over 25 years of experience, our goal is to provide you with the very best experience and personal attention that is built on Integrity, Quality, and the Exceptional Service. We operate based on a set of Core Values and will perform our services at an affordable and honest price. We are here to build a genuine and honest relationship with each and every one of our customers. We value your business and we look forward to enjoying this wonderful area that we live in with you.
