Mike Barry

Mike Barry – Co-Founder:

Mike Barry graduated from Loyalist College with a Construction and Engineering Diploma. Upon completing, he dove into the HVAC industry beginning his career as a line installer for Union Gas.

Moving to Union Energy, Mike was drawn to the sales and service side of the business. Starting as a public relations representative he eventually transitioned into product sales. His expertise and deep commitment to customer service shone and he quickly climbed the ladder to become General Manager and eventually VP of Sales for Canada.

Mike felt that there was an opportunity in the market to provide expert installations and service within the Cobourg region. He saw the demand and realized that with his expertise and commitment to quality and professionalism, he could deliver a whole new standard of service, and Comfort Zone Heating & Air Conditioning was born.

The seed was planted to start Comfort Zone Heating & Air Conditioning. Years later and continued growth proves Mike still has what it takes to deliver cutting-edge design, installation, and maintenance along with service and support that customers could trust.

Beth Nickerson

Beth Nickerson – Co-Founder:

After studying accounting in college, Beth started her accounting career with an answering service company based out of Kingston, ON. She later moved to Union Energy, which began her career in the HVAC industry.

Joining the Union Energy team as a receivables associate, Beth grew within the organization and worked her way up to managing the accounts receivable and accounts payable departments.

It was through marketing campaigns at Union Energy where Beth and Mike’s path crossed.

It was clear that the Cobourg area was in need of expert HVAC installation and service. Having a solid understanding of the intricacies of the heating and cooling industry, Beth’s financial knowledge and vision to better serve the Cobourg market lead to her partnership with Mike to start Comfort Zone Heating & Air Conditioning over a decade ago.

Responsible for the entire administrative and support teams, Beth’s strategic planning and financial leadership continue to successfully guide and grow Comfort Zone Heating & Air Conditioning.
