You might think it’s all in the name – heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical – but with Casteel it’s really so much more. Casteel Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electrical’s company culture prides itself on having a true family atmosphere by increasing employee morale and bringing employees together.

Listening to feedback from customers and employees, Casteel has been making significant changes in every department to fuel growth and profits in a down industry. By implementing the new changes the company has seen a 55 percent increase in sales revenue, a 40 percent increase in internet marketing leads and a 40 percent increase in staff and payroll over the last six years.

Facing the outside forces of mild temperatures and an even cooler economy, Casteel chooses to focus tirelessly on improving customer service, serving them rather than selling to them. Casteel allows each of their employees to become top craftsman, providing over 120 hours of training per year for each employee.
