Exceptional Service From Your Neighborhood Heating and Cooling Guys

When Alan Ruesch retired after more than 40 years at Gross Heating & Air Conditioning, he left the business in the very capable hands of long-time employees Jerry Nee and Joe Mechenich. Jerry has been in the industry as a service technician for more than 27 years—25 of those with Gross. Joe has 24 years of experience as a service tech and installer, including 10 years as a comfort consultant.

Our Family Treats Your Family Just Right

A gentleman by the name of William Gross founded Gross Heating in 1925 as a coal and oil business. After William died in the 1940s, his brother took over but quickly realized it was not for him and began looking for another “family” member to buy the business.

That family member was employee Mike Ruesch. In 1996, the legacy was passed from Mike to his son, Alan Ruesch, also a Gross team member. The company continued to flourish under his leadership for almost 25 years.

In early 2019, Alan retired and sold the business to Jerry Nee and Joe Mechenich.

At Gross Heating, our employees are family. And we know our customers feel the same way. If you look at our customer testimonials, many of our team members are mentioned by name—and that’s important to us. No one person is the “face” of Gross Heating—that’s what sets us apart from other companies.

Our Core Business Is Quality Heating and Cooling Installations

Our work goes far beyond basic residential and commercial heating and cooling systems. We can install any type of energy-efficient indoor comfort system, whether for new construction or an existing building that has outgrown its capacity. We install quality Carrier® products that feature all the latest technologies. Plus, we have a full inventory of parts for 24/7 emergency service on all makes and models of systems.

No matter your comfort needs, you can always count on our pros here at Gross Heating.

“We’re so proud to carry on the legacy that Alan Ruesch created. And we certainly couldn’t do it without our incredible staff. To be able to continue the same great service that you’ve counted on for years with the same friendly voices on the phone and the same experienced techs you already know and trust, it’s amazing.”

“It’s an honor to take over. From starting at Gross in 1996 working with Myron, then learning from Alan, and now being in the position to continue taking care of the customers that they built such strong relationships with, I couldn’t be more grateful to lead this company along with Joe.”
