About Climate Design
We're on a Mission to Earn Your Business for Life
When Lee Robinson and Ernie Kendler founded Climate Design on April 15th, 1973, they had one simple mission: do right by every customer and earn their business for life.
Lee and Ernie understood that earning a customer's business once is easy. Keeping that business after years and even decades of repair calls and installations is much harder.
It meant the Climate Design team would have to exceed expectations not just once, but many times, and through many unique repair and installation challenges.
Half a century later and our priorities haven't changed
A lot has changed since 1973. Back then, we were installing some of the first central air conditioners in West Florida homes. Today, those same homes and customers are on their third- and even fourth-generation AC unit installed by Climate Design!
We also made great strides in the services we offer our customers. For example, we opened a new Climate Design location in Bradenton in 1987. Then, in 2013, we added a plumbing division to the company. We followed that up with an electrical division in 2017.
Yes. A lot has changed. Both for Climate Design and for the HVAC industry as a whole. But under the guidance of Lee's son Tom, the team continues the same mission of earning the lifetime business of West Florida homeowners.
And that's a priority we wouldn't change for the world.
