A-1 United Heating, Air & Electrical Company History

Fire & Ice new logo


A-1 United Heating, Air & Electrical was established in 1975. In 1981 our founding owners purchased the company with the ambition to become one of the leading heating and air companies in Omaha. The beginnings of the company were modest, with one install technician and one service technician.

Today, their dreams are realized, we serve the Omaha-Metro Area, are over 100 employees strong, have expanded into numerous aspects of the HVAC industry, and have joined the Electrical industry. In 1992 we entered the new home construction, installing HVAC systems for several home builders. In 2010 A-1 United expanded to the Electrical industry and is a part of many residential and commercial projects in the Omaha-Metro area. 

After 26 years of hard work from the founding owners, A-1 United implemented an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP) in 2007, turning over its ownership to the employees. Our employees take pride in knowing that their dedication paves the way for their future, and our employees understand that our loyal customers are our biggest asset in shaping that future.

Since 1987 A-1 United has been a Lennox dealer and has been awarded the Premier Dealer title from Lennox. To earn and maintain “Premier” status, we must consistently meet and exceed our customer’s expectations. We are trained to design, install, and service HVAC systems, are dedicated to achieving complete customer satisfaction and must maintain a 4-star rating among consumers. We have received several awards throughout the decades. Our loyal customers and hardworking employees are to thank for every one of them. Here are a few that we are especially proud of:
