Many know that David White Services started in 1977 in Athens, Ohio when David began his own appliance repair company and quickly realized the need for a heating and cooling company in the Athens, Logan, Lancaster area. But David’s family knows that it really started years before.
Born on a farm in western Pennsylvania, David White learned his work ethic and mechanical skills from his father, an engineer at the New York Central railroad. David loved riding the trains with his dad, who ran the Erie to New York route. When David met Sandra and married he found a natural home for his mechanical talent at Westinghouse in Gettysburg, PA. He later found a job repairing appliances in Nelsonville, Ohio, and moved his young family to Poplar Street. It was there that he discovered his true passion for creating comfortable living spaces where families could gather.
David and Sandra always loved gardening and cooking. Their natural ability to compose warm and inviting environments where people feel at ease to be themselves made selling heating and cooling systems an easy fit. One of their early tag lines was “It Heats, It Cools, It Saves.”, and that concept lives on in the company as heating and cooling and saving people money on their utilities is still the top priority.
Today, David White Services is a female-owned company. As a 100% women-owned HVAC contractor, one of the few in America, Cara and Esther understand what homeowners want when they are making home improvement decisions. From giving options in communication, like talking to a real person or the convenience of texting questions, to being able to change the thermostat from the comfort of bed, they work everyday to make women’s access to home comfort easier. Their own history with Lancaster, Logan, and Athens, as well as raising their own children right here in southeastern Ohio, allows they have a sense of community that a true, family-run company offers.
