HomeServe North America Acquires Staten Island, New York-based Gregg Mechanical

Acquisition Bolsters HomeServe’s HVAC and Installations Business in the Greater New York City Area

Norwalk, Connecticut – July 9, 2018 – HomeServe North America (HomeServe), a leading provider of service plans, repair and installation services for the home, today announced the acquisition of Gregg Mechanical. Gregg Mechanical, based in Staten-Island, was established in 1987 by Gregg Gaal to provide a variety of heating and air conditioning-related services to customers in Staten Island, Brooklyn and parts of New Jersey.

HomeServe’s growing HVAC business has been key to the company’s growth in North America. The company’s goal is to offer a complete solution to the installation, repair and maintenance of residential heating, air conditioning and water heating systems. The Gregg acquisition represents the company’s latest step in capturing a piece of the estimated $29 billion annual HVAC business opportunity in the U.S.

There’s nothing more exciting than seeing our company continue on its growth trajectory by building out our HVAC business segment,” said HomeServe North America CEO John Kitzie. “For more than 30 years, Gregg’s customers have entrusted their homes to the company’s skilled technicians. Their shared commitment to HomeServe’s high-quality customer service makes them a natural fit for our company, and undoubtedly will continue as Gaal and his team become part of HomeServe.”

When I started this company, I did it because I wanted to ensure people got the service they needed when they needed it. Over the years, I’ve surrounded myself with people who shared that same goal,” said Gregg Gaal. “As our companies come together, I know we’ll all continue doing what we do best: delivering quality repairs and installations. That’s long been our mission, and now we get to do it together with HomeServe.” Gaal will become General Manager of the Gregg business for HomeServe.

HomeServe has been doing HVAC repairs and installations in the greater New York City area since 2010. In Staten Island alone, HomeServe’s technicians completed service calls for nearly 12,000 customers in the last 12 months.

Whole House Humidifiers

A whole house humidifier brings many benefits to your home. Even in the Spring, a whole house humidifier can come in handy with regulating the humidity of your home. At Gregg Mechanical, we offer our customers only the top quality in home accessories.

You may not think about it, but a whole house humidifier serves more than the benefit of preserving the moisture in air of your home. With the preservation and control of humidity, you and your family will be less likely to catch viruses, the common cold, a sore throat, or even cracked and itchy skin that usually occurs when the air in your home is too dry; especially with cases of allergies that are common for this time of the year, having a whole house humidifier can ease agitation of your allergies.

The dry air that’s in your house can also cause possible damage to the furniture in your home, such as: hardwood flooring, paint, plaster, and even electrical items. In addition, by having a whole house humidifier in your home leads to lower costs on your heating/cooling bills as you won’t have to fuss around with the thermostat as much; by having the humidifier regulate the air in your home, it causes the temperature in your home to settle to a comfortable setting.

Whole House Humidifiers are an ideal product that can be used in any season, and you wouldn’t want to find yourself without one. For more information about our whole house humidifiers or any of our other products, feel free to give Gregg Mechanical a call at (718) 761-2300.

Professional Tune-Ups and Maintenance During the Off-Season

The harsh winter is dying out, which will eventually lead to a harsh summer. In the spring, your heating and air conditioning systems get a rest from constant use. This is the perfect time to get your systems tuned-up and maintained by our licensed professionals. Tune-ups make sure that your system is up and running for when you need them, and it is best to have them done when you are not relying on them to keep your home comfortable. Before making the switch from the heater to the A/C, have both checked and get a tune-up from our professional service staff. Keep your home, and your family comfortable all year long with properly working and maintenanced heaters and air conditioners.
