Hi, I’m Mark Ortiz, the owner and operator of Collins Heating & Cooling.
I got started in the world of HVAC in the late 1990s. I originally went to school to become a teacher, but soon discovered that this path just wasn’t “me.” I had a passion for fixing things and helping people, which led me to explore HVAC as a career. I graduated from Ivy Tech State College with an associate’s degree in Industrial Technology in 2001.
I’ve worked at all levels of this profession, starting off doing jobs nobody else wanted to take on and gaining some valuable professional and life experience along the way. By the mid-2000s, I was a skilled HVAC contractor capable of taking on all HVAC jobs.
In 2005, my son Collin was born, and I made the decision to launch my own family business. As you can guess, I named the company after my son.
I have built this business on providing high-quality, honest, and reliable service to the local residents and businesses throughout northwest Indiana. When you place a call to Collins Heating & Cooling, you will be speaking to me not an automated service. No matter if you’re a homeowner or business owner, I believe that when you invest in a new AC or furnace unit, you are not only investing in the equipment but also the company that provides that service. I take that trust my customers place in me seriously.
That commitment to my customers has paid off. While many businesses folded or saw big losses during the economic downturn, Collins Heating & Cooling has never had a “down” year. This is because of the focus on our customers and the faith that people have put in our business.
Call me anytime (219) 924-7423 for your heating or cooling needs.
