We are the Olympic Peninsula's largest and most experienced heating contractor, with more than 24,000 successful system installations since 1974. Unlike other companies that specialize in furnaces, air conditioners, or heat pumps, we specialize in "systems." Equipment alone cannot satisfy your comfort needs. Our comfort specialists survey your home or business, interview you to determine what your needs are, and then design the best system to fit those needs. What fits the "average home" may or may not be what is best for you. Our 40 plus team members have been trained by the best in the industry to identify and meet your needs. We have specialists trained in system sizing and design, installation, service, indoor air quality, piping and heat transfer, and air duct design. In fact, we value training so much, that on average we have someone in class every day—over 2,000 hours per year. This allows us to be recognized as industry leaders; we have been hired to train other contractors. We believe that comfort and safety are the most important concerns for your home, and have designed our business to meet these concerns.
We are committed to providing the best heating, cooling, and air quality service that this industry can provide.
We are focused on acquiring new customers and developing long-term relationships by exceeding expectations. We will achieve our mission by hiring only the best, offering continuing education, and retaining our employees through a positive, safe, drug free work environment. We will maintain a team attitude throughout our company.

Air Flo Heating was started in 1974 by Robert F. Bequette. Mark Bequette joined and then purchased the company in 1975. Robert had over 30 years of experience in the heating industry when he started the company. Sequim was chosen to base the company because of the lifestyle and recreational opportunities the area provides. Mark joined the company to expand his installation and design abilities, and to use his business and marketing training obtained in college.
Mark hired Joel Berson after graduating from Universal Technical Institute for Heating and Air Conditioning in 1989. During his 33 years of employment with our company, Joel worked his way from installer, service technician, shop fabricator, install foreman, to president. On January 1, 2016, Joel and Tricia Berson purchased the company from Mark and Sandy Bequette. Joel and Tricia now both work in the company. Every day their main focus is to be a local family business for our community.
When the company was established, high quality central heating and cooling was not common in this area. That's why the name Air Flo Heating was chosen, to convey the idea of moving air to provide optimum comfort. By providing quality installations and focusing on customer needs, we have grown to be the Olympic Peninsula's largest heating contractor with a market share of over 50 percent.
Our size means we install more systems than all our competitors combined. We currently have over 40 team members, a 34-vehicle fleet, and two separate Sequim locations with over 20,000 square-feet of office, warehouse, and fabrication space. Our newly open Gig Harbor location was established in 2019 to help our Kitsap Peninsula clients. We specialize in heat pumps, ductless, high efficiency air filters, and automatic zoning systems for residential and commercial applications.
“I just had my first experience with the annual maintenance of my Trane Heat Pump HVAC system. The work was performed by Air Flo technician Gerald. He was knowledgable, courteous, efficient, and did an excellent job. I highly recommend Air Flo Heating, both for purchasing a new system (which I did) and for performing the annual maintenance.”
“I’m extremely happy with the service all of you provide. From my initial installation to the preventative maintenance checks Employees are always efficient, on time, friendly and answers all my questions. I will continue to use Air Flo Heating Co. I am confident in their knowledge and willingness to help.”
