Hembree Heating & Air Named May Small Business of the Month

Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce

Congratulations to Hembree Heating & Air on being named the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce May Small Business of the Month.

Hembree Heating & Air is a full-service residential and light commercial HVAC company. They provide heating and air conditioning repair, replacement, new construction installations as well as indoor air-quality control to help with allergies and cleanliness of the air in your home or office.

This family-owned business has been going strong for 50 years with three generations working hard to invest in its success. It all started in 1969 when Donald Hembree Sr. began doing heating and air conditioning work out of his personal truck. He grew the company slowly with a lot of hard work and sweat. Walter Donald "Don” Hembree, Jr. took over in 1986 to allow his father to retire.

"When my dad took the reins of the company, he was just 17 years old and the company was still relatively small with just a few hundred customers. However, since then, under my dad's leadership, the company has significantly grown. Today we have offices on both sides of Mobile Bay and have served tens of thousands of customers,” said Josh Hembree. "It's absolutely humbling to see all that God has blessed and entrusted us with!” 

Brothers Josh and Jacob Hembree are both now working alongside the company to give their amazing customers the best HVAC services possible.

Josh Hembree is an attorney by trade, but in 2016 he and his wife Kala moved home to Daphne to carry on the family’s legacy. He now serves as the Eastern Shore Operations Manager running the Fairhope office. Jacob Hembree helps manage the Mobile office.

Hembree Heating & Air is celebrating 50 years in business. "I truly believe that our "secret to success" isn't really a secret because I hope that every single person we come in contact with clearly sees the following: That we strive to honor God in all that we do, treat our customers like family, and serve them with the absolute best HVAC services possible,” said Josh Hembree. "We work hard and never cut corners. We believe in our team and invest in them so that they, in turn, will invest in our customers with world-class customer service.”
