John began his HVAC career at New Hampshire Vocational Technical College, in Manchester, New Hampshire, in 1980. There he completed a 400-hour Oil Burner Technology program. Soon, John was hired by Tenney Fuels, Inc., in Concord. Tenney’s focus was to sell quality fuel products with exceptional oil burner installations and service. This was a perfect place to get started, and with excellent mentors to ensure quality training was always the rule.
After 3-1/2 years at Tenney, John returned to school at New Hampshire Technical Institute, in Concord, full-time in the Fall of 1984, as he worked part-time for another legacy fuel company in Concord, Ferns Energy. Primarily a service and installation technician, John expanded his job description to include fuel delivery and pump/tank/sign work.
By 1988, John started his own heating contracting company, Best Heating Corp.
In 1996, John became an independent inventor of hand tools for the plumbing & heating trade, and in 1999 had signed 2 License Agreements with Taco, Inc., a manufacturer of heating components, for what would become the industry standard for connecting forced hot water heating system circulators to threaded and soldered piping. A few years of royalties allowed John to take a hiatus from HVAC work to finish 4 years of Mechanical Engineering and Business Management studies at NHTI.
In 2002, John took his first sales job at Dowling Corp., in Portsmouth, where he designed HVAC systems and estimated their cost for installation. John sold jobs from the day he started to the day he left, following the sale of the company. John returned to HVAC contracting, and remained self-employed until the economic downturn in 2008, when Thayer Corp contacted him with an offer that he couldn’t refuse. At Thayer as a Sales Engineer, John had 2-3 times more sales estimates than any of the 6 other Sales Engineers. John developed an estimating system in Lotus 123, back in 1988, then in 1998 he converted it to Excel and continued to build the materials database, which would free him from having to re-type every HVAC part used in a system – the principal reason for his rapid estimating at Thayer. In 2009 the recession had forced closed the doors of Thayer’s New Hampshire operation, so John returned to self-employment again.
Since 2009 John has perfected his processes for creating job estimates and billing his customers with accuracy, precision and honesty. In 2021, John revised his Estimating/Costing/Billing systems to become the best way to ensure a win-win business relationship with his customers.
As an inventor of products for the trade, John has created his own mechanical product line, which afford him the 2nd-greatest number of products by brand installed on his Forced Hot Water heating systems. Only pipe/fittings makers have more products than John.
John is working for New Hampshire Lakes & Mountains region building owners turning out upscale Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning, Refrigerating, Humidity Control and Air Cleaning systems.
John does all HVAC systems designs, installations, maintenance and emergency trouble shooting and repair of his own systems constructions and others.
