Everyone always asks, “What does LH stand for?” Our initials LH is Larry Hameister, our Founder.
L & H Services Inc. began in 1979 as Larry decided he wanted more, so he quit his factory job and pursued his dream of owning his own business.
Larry started working out of his home, servicing neighbors' toasters, hair dryers, appliances, water heaters, water softeners, furnaces and air conditioners. L & H Services Inc. grew by referrals, and soon Larry moved L & H Services Inc. into prime commercial property.
During the early 1980’s Larry’s son, Mike started to assist on jobs. In 1982 L & H Services Inc. was one of the first contractors to install high efficiency HVAC and geothermal heat pump systems. In 1986 Larry and Mike realized their true passion was in the HVAC industry, so they began offering a full product line for replacement, new construction and light commercial work.
In 1988 Larry's son Mike was “officially” a full-time employee. In 1996 our current store front location at 1140 S. Dixie Highway in Beecher, Illinois was built. In 1997 L & H Services Inc. was incorporated. In 2007, a Plumbing Division was added.
In 2013 we partnered with Green Guidance Inc. to offer energy efficient solutions through insulating and air sealing. In 2015 Larry officially retires, and Mike purchases L & H Services Inc. Under Mike’s ownership emerges a new logo, a new vision and a clear sense of direction.
In 2016 we acquire Green Guidance Inc., and we open a second location in Gilman, Illinois. Mike's vision is to deliver the highest level of transparent customer service.
At 9 years old I went on service calls with my father, taking it all in. I was a full time employee at 18. Currently as business owner we pride ourselves on being honest, inventive and articulate with our designs as well as educators of our trade, always with our customers' best interests in mind.
I've been a part of the L & H family since October 2005. I focus on my training and education to provide the best solutions for my customers. I have always been passionate when it comes to solving problems. I love my job and feel my purpose in life is to take care of people... and make a difference!
I've been a part of the L & H family since December 2015. I love the family atmosphere and continuous education offered. I enjoy servicing and providing customers with peace of mind. I also love to solve problems, the more challenging they are, the better for me!
