Leading HVAC business serving Northern Nevada and Northern California relies on assistance of Nevada State Development Corporation to secure loan for new property

Reno — After more than 12 years in business, the timing was ideal for Alexander Heating & Air, Inc., to implement its expansion plans.

Based in Sparks and serving a wide array of industrial, commercial and residential customers, the owners of Alexander Heating sensed that with economic activity picking up in the region, this was a crucial time to ramp up their business.

“We knew we wanted a new piece of property to move the business into, and we decided that it was either now or never,” said Linda White, secretary-treasurer of Alexander Heating. “According to our research, property values were still a little low, but everything was starting to churn again. You could see the wheels beginning to turn.”

With help from Nevada State Development Corporation, the state’s largest provider of U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 Loans, Alexander Heating secured a loan to move into a new building that covers 8,500 square feet, significantly larger than their previous home of 5,000 square feet.

“It was almost like a condominium building, totally empty at first but we did a full build-out on it,” White said. “It’s truly amazing how we filled it up. This has been instrumental in keeping our team of employees working and in allowing our business to grow. We would just like to see the entire Reno and Northern Nevada region continue to thrive. It is such a wonderful place.”

Roger Kadz, Nevada State Development Corporation Business Development Officer, said Alexander Heating’s experience reflects a larger trend throughout the state.

“The pace of economic activity throughout Nevada is continuing to accelerate,” Kadz said. “We’re confident that Alexander Heating’s new, expanded headquarters will make an immense contribution to the success of the business as it moves forward.”

A family-owned and operated business serving Reno, Sparks and surrounding areas including parts of Northern California, Alexander Heating designs, installs and services state-of-the-art HVAC systems for the industrial, commercial and residential market. Its highly trained employees have expertise in computer room units, rooftop equipment, furnaces, air conditioners, duct work, sheet metal, gas lines and water lines, among other customer needs. The loan and new building enabled Alexander Heating to launch its plumbing division, White said.

With more than 40 years of combined experience among the family, Alexander Heating prides itself on friendly, efficient service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
