When Lenny Siers was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force more than a decade ago, he was looking for a business where he could use his military experience. He wanted an organization that had structure, procedures, and valued the importance of image and appearance. Siers found exactly what he was looking for at One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating®. A nationwide franchise of heating, ventilation and air conditioning professionals that operate in more than 250 territories across North America. “The franchise system offers similar structures as the military but with a civilian emphasis on that entrepreneurial spirit. I was used to being part of a large, successful organization and I was happy to step out of one uniform and into the One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating uniform. It was a perfect fit,” said Siers. Today’s Sier’s business, which serves customers in the Florida panhandle and surrounding areas, is one of the most successful businesses in the organization.
One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® and Mister Sparky® electric are all franchises and part of the Direct Energy family of brands. The company is now offering a 10% discount for honorably discharged veterans off the initial investment. “We’re proud to say we have many veterans who own our franchise brands and numerous others who work as technicians, plumbers and electricians. We focus on customer service, training to be the best and we offer systems and procedures that help businesses grow,” said President of Franchise, Mark Baker, Lieutenant Colonel, USAR (Retired.)
The company is currently offering HVAC, plumbing and electrical franchises in select locations across North America. For more information contact:
