In a nutshell, we are the original Thompson Family of heating and cooling professionals who have been serving the Salt Lake Area since 1947! We’re the former owners of Thompson and Sons Heating and Air Conditioning and were now in our 4th generation of Thompsons.
Our history....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 as their sons grew older 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. The corporate environment was never a good fit for Gene and Bill, and 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. 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 and have returned to our roots of the local, family owned and operated heating and air conditioning business.
