"Home Comfort came to my rescue and got our heater working again for less than we expected" ~ Justin S.


Joe and Vicki

Arnold Dalke founded Home Comfort, Inc in 1954.  Home Comfort is the premier provider of heating, air conditioning and air purification systems in the area. In 1964, we became a Lennox dealer. In 1996, Joe and Vicki Flande purchased the business and have continued the mission of providing the highest quality of comfort for residential and commercial customers like you.

Joe was the first apprentice to start in the Mid-Valley HVAC Apprenticeship Program and today sits on the board of directors. Ben Flande, Joe’s son, grew up in the business and is now actively engaged in the daily management of the business. The Flande’s are committed to the local community and generously support local schools and community organizations.


With over 50 years of combined service and ongoing training and certifications, you can trust our staff strive to be leaders in the HVAC industry. With new technologies and solutions, the choice of which to use can get complicated. To help you choose the best solution, our technicians are continuously trained to stay current with the new technologies being introduced to our industry and can provide the benefits of the various options.

Home Comfort gives a high priority to continuing education. We are very proud that many of our technicians have met the rigorous standards of the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) Certification Program to certify that our technicians exceed industry standards.

Our staff is trained to meet the installation and service needs of both residential and commercial equipment. We specialize in Lennox heating and air conditioning systems, Honeywell air purifications systems and Heat and Glow fireplaces. Recognizing individual preferences, we gladly service and install every brand of equipment. Our service technicians are available to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
