About the Owner

Tom Kime

Tom Kime

Tom Kime is a dedicated family man and a businessman. He has been happily married to his wife, Chris, for the last 42 years and has three children and six wonderful grandchildren. After graduating from Auburn University with a degree in Electrical Engineering he began his career in the heating and air conditioning field calling on HVAC dealers. In 1977, he returned to his hometown of Birmingham and joined Standard Heating & Air Conditioning Company as a salesman working with homeowners, business owners, architects, and contractors to provide comfortable and efficient heating and cooling systems for homes and businesses.

Today he is the owner of the 75 year-old business which is a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer and an authorized dealer of Dr. Energy Saver.
