In a nutshell, we are the original Thompson Family of heating and cooling professionals. We have been serving the Salt Lake Area since 1947! We’re the former owners of Thompson and Sons Heating and Air Conditioning and have been in the industry for four generations.
William (Bill Sr) J. Thompson started in the HVAC business in 1946, after WWII. He originally had a partner, Jack Billows, and the company was originally called Thompson and Billows. In the 1950s, Bill & John divided the company and Thompson and Sons Heating and Air Conditioning was born.
In 1982, Bill Sr. retired and his son, Gene Thompson bought the company. Gene and his son (Bill Jr) grew the company over the next few years and in 1997, they sold Thompson and Sons to a large, nationwide company. Gene and Bill continued to manage the company through 2005, but the corporate environment was never a good fit for Gene and Bill. Some of the things they were expecting of us just didn’t fit well with our philosophy so when Gene retired, Bill resigned and started Thompson's Comfort Connection in 2005.
We have returned to our roots of being a local, family owned and operated business. Bill has a Mechanical Engineering Degree from the University of Utah and can handle any heating, cooling, or ventilation project. We are still in the same building located in Midvale, 7682 S Maple Street (60 West), providing the same level of service that we always have.
Although we are no longer named "Thompson and Sons," Bill Thompson and his sons, Mike and Colton, continue the family legacy of providing excellent service to the Salt Lake Valley.
