In 1958 while working on small appliances, Clarence Schmitt
decided he wanted more for his family, so he started working on heating, Air
conditioning and refrigeration with a partner. He was self-taught and ambitious
to start a name in the heating and air conditioning field.
After his son Gerald
(Jerry) Schmitt returned from the military, he started in the business with his
father and another partner. It was then that the Schmitt name became a staple in
the Evansville and Tri state area in heating, cooling and refrigeration. In the
late 70’s after Clarence Schmitt retired, Jerry Schmitt pursued his own company
with his own vision. Heating, Cooling and Refrigeration not only in
residential, but in the commercial and Industrial markets also, with the same
family values in mind.
In 2001, Jerry’s son
Brian with his wife Tracy took over the Schmitt name in the heating and cooling
industry with the same principles in mind. Prompt courteous service with the
promise the customer will still deal with the owners and family.
Now with his oldest son Cody in the business, Brian Schmitt
is 4 generations strong and licensed in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Illinois
offering sales, service and installation of residential and commercial heating,
cooling and refrigeration. They are also starting a Commercial division called SMS Mechanical Services to further
broaden the service and expertise they can offer.
With 2 more sons and
a daughter, Brian Schmitt plans on giving the Evansville and Tri State area
many more generations to come and rely on for great service, great people and
prices that won’t break the bank.
