If there is one thing certain about living anywhere in Florida during the summer months, it is vital to have a reputable air conditioning company at the ready for all of your air conditioning and ventilation needs. When the professionals of that company are dependable and provide quality service at affordable prices, it is a no-brainer!
Gil & Julie McWilliams are the owners of McWilliams & Son Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, a three-generation, family-owned business in Port Richey, and they deliver all of these things and more for all of their clients.
Gil & Julie are well aware of the importance of providing the very best experience for customers each and every time – especially during the intense heat of the season – whether it’s during standard business hours or long after.
In as much as their customers are highly-valued, family means everything to the McWilliams’. Julie continued, “McWilliams and Son is a family business. Everyone is involved one way or another. We spend time together in many ways be it business-related or not. We are together, be it working in the community or on family vacations. The key is involving everyone in all aspects beneficial to the balance of providing harmony. The AC business is not 9-5, and we all know that come summer, our time together may be limited, but come winter, we are out seeing the world…together.”
Gil is “The Big Man” makes all things possible. He is hands on in every aspect of the company.
Julie handles the marketing, advertising and public relations.
The “Son” in McWilliams & Son, Devin, recently returned from active duty in the United States Marine Corp, and he is fully-trained and licensed as an HVAC mechanic. Soon, he will earn his electrical license.
Other family members include Uncle Doug Saxon, as Office Manager and cousin, Brandon Saxon, Service Technician.
Together, there are 30 employees and 18 trucks, and the McWilliams team strives to do their best work day after day, for all things HVAC and electrical, including maintenance, repairs, and air quality.
“Gil truly loves what he does and being able to provide a service that is very necessary in Florida is definitely rewarding. He has provided service even when the customer has financial issues. He would never let a family do without if he can help it,” Julie confessed.
Aside from business, the McWilliams’ are active throughout the community, participating in Port Richey Rotary, Trinity Rotary, Phi Delta Kappa, Junior Service League, Trinity Odessa Chamber of Commerce, West Pasco Chamber of Commerce, along with many networking groups like Trinity Business Association, Professional Service Network, and Trinity Referral Network.
Their commitment to community is as solid as their commitment to their family and their customers. They see the best part about the West Pasco community is meeting other like-minded people who come together to help those in need.
Julie confided, “We are very fortunate in our success to be able to give back to the community by donating funds to many non-profit organizations and to help projects go forward that serve a purpose to better the lives of those who need it most.”
