In 1991, the Terry Davis family met the Tony Gray family at a local church where they were both members. Due to a shared entrepreneurial spirit, Terry and Tony decided to combine their talents to create their own heating and air conditioning company. With Terry’s HVAC experience and Tony’s background in business, they believed they had what it took to create a successful company.
Terry brought 13 years of experience to the new business. He gained valuable residential and commercial experience by working for various heating and air conditioning companies as well as a local sheet metal union shop. During this time, he took night courses at Pulaski Technical College in sheet metal.
Terry and I are proud of the 25+ years we have been in business. Since the beginning, it has always been our mission to treat our customers with the same respect, courtesy and honesty that we would want and expect ourselves.
— TONY GRAY
Tony graduated from Ouachita Baptist University with a B.A. in Business Administration in 1983. After spending four years in the United States Army and then another four years in the Insurance field, Tony was ready to fulfill his strong desire to start his own company. In preparation for his new career, Tony took courses on service and troubleshooting heating and air conditioning equipment at Pulaski Technical College. Darlene (Terry’s wife) and Pam (Tony’s wife) helped them come up with their company name of “Chenal Heating and Air, Inc.”
Chenal Heating and Air, Inc. was incorporated on March 26, 1992. From the beginning, Terry and Tony have shared the belief that by being honest, hardworking, knowledgeable, providing quality installations and equipment, and doing their best to satisfy their customers, they would be successful.
Today, Chenal Heating & Air operates four divisions: Service, Residential Replacement, Residential New Construction, and Commercial; and employs twenty-one people. Terry and Tony continue to be very involved in all aspects of the company and personally see to it that all jobs are performed to their high standards.
