Serving the Greater Houston Area Since 1973
In 1970, Air-Care Southeast, Inc. owner Chet Highfill chose to give up a long-time career in the ladies' shoe business working for the Wohl Shoe Co. He took almost all of their savings and with the support of his wife, Polly, went to air conditioning school in Houston.
Chet graduated in late 1970 and went to work as a service tech in Pasadena, TX. In 1972, he made a move to Texas Air Care where, as a service tech, his knowledge grew and the owner of Texas Air Care suggested they open an office on the south side of town, and Chet decided it was time to go on his own.
He started Air-Care Southeast in 1973 in Pasadena, supported by his daughter as a secretary and his son, Carl, working in the afternoons after school. The office moved from Pasadena to South Houston in 1978 and now Chet had three service techs. In 1980, Carl got his state air conditioning license, which opened the doors for further business growth.
By 1985, Chet had grown from a one-man shop to six service techs and one installation crew. He had gone from just air conditioning and heating to include refrigeration. The company was growing at a very rapid pace. By 1988, he added our plumbing division.
Air-Care Southeast, Inc. currently has 50 employees, with 20 radio-dispatched trucks. We have continued to be a family-owned and operated company with Chet, Polly, Vickie, Carl, Mike, and Phillip leading the way.
Chet started the company with the idea that we are family and the aim to treat our customers as if they were family as well.
"This is a very professional A/C Company. When I needed to have my A/C system replaced, Carl with Air Care made a careful analysis of my house and recommended a High Efficiency system. He thoroughly explained how it worked. The installation crew showed up right on time and was very careful and protective of my house. They cleaned up after they finished the job. The next day Carl visited with me again, checked everything out, and made sure that it was up to my satisfaction. I highly recommend this company!"
