Dean Gilford

Kilowatt Heating, Air Conditioning and Electrical started with our owner Dean Gilford. Dean was fortunate enough to be mentored in the HVAC industry when he was young. At age 15, his Uncle Arnold took him under his wing and trained him in the electrical trade. He didn’t just give his technical expertise. He also instilled the values of responsibility, time management, and hard work. One of Uncle Arnold’s mottos was, “Work smarter and do the job right.”

From Dean’s Uncle Ed he learned the heating and air conditioning business. He was blessed to work side by side with him for many years. From Uncle Ed, Dean also picked up a passion for great customer service. Throughout every job they worked on together, Uncle Ed would ask, “How can we better serve this customer?”

In 1990, Dean took the lessons learned from the men before him and sewed them into the foundation of his business, creating Kilowatt Heating, Air Conditioning and Electrical. Every job done strives to make Uncle Arnold and Ed proud.

Customer Satisfaction Is Our Priority

We believe that it is every home and business owner’s right to have excellent indoor air quality, year-round comfort and energy efficiency in their buildings. We understand that you rely heavily on the various heating, cooling, water heater, and electrical systems in your house, in addition to any solar panels you may have. Our job is to make sure things run smoothly at all times. You can call us any time, night or day, if you’re having an issue and we’ll be there in no time at all. If we can’t replace your HVAC system right away, then we’ll make sure that you have a temporary system in place so that your discomfort is minimized.

We Are Fully Certified, Licensed, Bonded, and Insured

When hiring a contractor to take care of your electrical, HVAC or water heater service needs, make sure you hire a pro. You need a contractor who is certified by all of the relevant organizations, who is bonded and insured so that your home is safe and protected at all times, and who knows their equipment inside and out. We are licensed by the Contractor State Licensing Board for General Building (B), Electrical (C-10), Solar, and Warm-Air Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC, C-20). We also hold the following certifications:
