40 years of HVAC
Forty Years Forward
HEP proudly celebrates 40 years of commercial HVAC excellence. It takes fortitude to last – strength of character, toughness of spirit, firmness of purpose. These values are how we’ve been getting the job done for four decades. Take a look back at where we started.
As ASHRAE International president in 2008, Bill promoted the mission: “Maintain to Sustain” around the world through speaking engagements, presentations and leadership. With over 50 years of service to the organization, Bill is an ASHRAE Fellow and continues to remain engaged and active.

We like to think that has something to do with the clients we serve, the kind of work we do, and the way we get along with both.
