United Air Temp History


In 85+ years, United Air Temp has evolved into a regional firm that serves the South East United States with over 30 branch offices and more than 300 technicians and staff.

United Air Temp’s history isn’t what one would expect from such a large firm. It began humbly in Erie, Pa. in 1931 as Fowler Heating Company, which manufactured incinerator equipment, and Aire Flow Distributing. By 1950, Fowler Heating Company Conjoined the manufacturing arm of the company and Heating & Air Conditioning partners to focus on HVAC needs to the consumer. In 1976, Fowler Heating Company changed its business focus and name to Fowler Heating and Air Conditioning. The focus changed to the promotion of preventative maintenance and service.

In 1979 Fowler Heating and Air Conditioning franchise and Fowler-Trane was created. The CEO of Fowler Heating and Air Conditioning moved to Alexandria Va., and opened United Air Temp in its first office in Falls Church, Va. The growth since 1999 is nothing short of spectacular. United Air Temp has grown rapidly to include service and installation branches throughout the South East Currently United Air Temp has office locations that service Lower Maryland, Northern Virginia, Charlotte North Carolina, Atlanta Georgia and many areas in Florida.

The growth of United Air Temp is only limited to the imagination. Our goal is to become the leader in Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration for the South Eastern United States. United Air Temp is actively pursuing growth in North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. From a small town in Erie Pa., to a five-state operation in very competitive markets, United Air Temp has proven itself a true leader in the home comfort industry.
