The Owners

about heartland quality

Jim Horlander is the co-owner of Heartland Quality Heating and Cooling, with his wife Becky. Jim started his heating and cooling career in 1991, as a student in the industry. As the larger companies were switching their employees to commission-based pay he began to notice less of a “family friendly”environment. In hopes of returning this environment to the industry, Jim created Heartland Quality Heating and Cooling in 2011. He ran Heartland Quality Heating and Cooling out of his basement and garage for the first year on his family’s ping pong table.  Jim’s high attention to detail and word-of-mouth led his company to grow over the last several years of operation.

Becky Horlander is co-owner of Heartland Quality Heating and Cooling with her husband Jim. As the Becky Horlander- Ownercompany has grown so has Becky’s role in daily operations. She does all of the accounting, assists in the weekly training and helps in customer service. She’s also the company cheerleader constantly providing support where it is needed.

I would never use anyone other than Heartland Quality.
You will not find anyone more knowledgeable and honest than Jim.  A very rare combination.
