We started in 2004. Hertless Air Conditioning and Heating Mechanical is a 3rd and 4th generation family owned and operated company. The company was formed by Robert E. Hertless, Robert E. Hertless Jr., and David W. Hertless. Coming from a long line of HVAC contractors dating back to 1936 the Hertless family continues to service the HVAC needs of Virginia.

Robert E. Hertless learned the trade from his grandfather and father as he was growing up. In 1960, he worked part-time with his father while in high school. From 1963 to 1967, he served in the Marine Corp. but returned to the HVAC industry after he finished his tour. Robert also taught HVAC service in adult education classes at the Richmond Technical Center. As the years went on he became partners with his father and trained his sons in the HVAC industry. After the retirement of his father in 2004 he went into business with his sons and formed the current company Hertless Air Conditioning and Heating Mechanical.

Robert E. Herless Jr. also learned the trade from his grandfather and father as he was growing up. In 1984, he started working part-time during the summer and weekends learning the ins and outs of sheet metal layout and installation. After graduating high school in 1986 he started working full-time as a helper and soon became an installation mechanic. Robert went to night school and learned HVAC service as well as getting on the job training with his father. Robert continues his education to stay up to date with the constant changes in the industry. Robert is also the current Vice President and head of operations.

David W. Hertless also learned the trade from his grandfather and father as he was growing up. In 1987, he started working part-time during the summer and weekends learning the ins and outs of the trade. During his junior and senior years of high school he studied HVAC service. After graduating high school in 1989 he came to work full-time until enlisting in the Navy. In 1994, he returned from the Navy and went to work for different construction companies over the next several years exploring other avenues of work. In 2000, he came back to work with his grandfather, father, and brother. David is currently the President and oversees the administration part of the company.

Through the years, we have worked on everything from window units to commercial heating and cooling systems. We have witnessed the many changes in the industry and make sure that we are up to date on the latest industry changes. We are looking forward to helping you with your HVAC needs.
