“Leading In Air Quality, One Home at a Time.”
“Our vision is to be recognized as an innovator and leader in indoor air quality, and to be a total home environment expert.”
Through the years, BBB’s torch has been the symbol of guidance and enlightenment as consumers and businesses strive to interact in a trustworthy and ethical marketplace. The local Torch Award is dedicated to the legacy of great Miami Valley business pioneers, such as John Patterson, Wilbur and Orville Wright, Charles Kettering, Colonel Edward Deeds and most recently, Clay Mathile. It was through their ingenuity, leadership, generosity and mentorship to others the Miami Valley has stood the test of time and recreated itself again and again.
The list of reasons the selection committee decided to recognize McAfee Heating & Air Conditioning Co. is long. The company invested in its community by purchasing a neighboring building, which was in a state of disrepair to bring all of its operation under one roof.
Today, it is a top-notch facility and is home to 42 team members, complete with two training centers, an idea center, multiple conference rooms, basketball court and areas for rest and relaxation.
The company is committed to helping others grow personally and professionally — from students to competitors in the industry. For instance, McAfee began a scholarship program in 2015 called “You Can Count On Me.” This annual program recognizes and awards ten area high school seniors with $2,500 scholarships to attend either two or four year colleges, trade schools or state-approved licensure programs. Mentoring of the McAfee team is one of the core foundations that have helped the company become the leader in the marketplace it is today. Founder and president, Greg McAfee is certified and approved to teach State of Ohio Continuing Education classes for the renewing of state licenses. Greg also holds classes at the facility for other HVAC contractors to learn how to grow business. More than 150 contractors have participated in this training in the last six years.
Giving back to the community is vital to the organization. For over a decade, the company has been a proud sponsor and partner of the K99.1 Cares for Kids Radiothon, which raises money to provide high-quality pediatric health care to infants, children and teens throughout the region. For eight years, McAfee has provided assistance for local families who need help with Christmas gifts. It even hosted its first Truck-or-Treat event last year. Nearly 1,500 local children and their families attended. Countless donations, sponsorships, volunteer services and fundraising efforts take place on a regular, uninterrupted basis benefiting a variety of organizations, including Athletes In Action, Dayton Development Coalition, The Salvation Army Dayton Kroc Center and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton.
