Customer Testimonials

Jacobs Heating and Air Conditioning is a family-owned and operated company, serving the HVAC needs of the greater Portland region since 1952. Brent Jacobs is the second generation owner of the company and serves as its President.  Over the years, Brent has assembled a top-notch management team of experienced professionals. “The smarter they are, the smarter I am,” says Brent. “We don’t assume our employees know everything, but we do ensure they are the most knowledgeable and well-trained professionals in the market by investing in them.”

Every employee, including office staff and production people, receives training – both in-house and externally at industry seminars.  Jacobs involves its field people in role-playing exercises where they pose situations that solicit responses to “What happens when..?” Personality tests are administered to determine employee strengths and weaknesses. Shop people are all industry trained, and some are involved in teaching others. All of this is done not just to make them better long-term employees, but better people, too. We believe we are the best and make sure our employees have the tools and the training to be the best.

Jacobs currently employs more than 80 people, many of whom have been with the company 10, 20, and even 30 years. That type of loyalty is a testimony to the heritage of the company established by Brent’s father Basil Jacobs over 60 years ago.
