The look of D&H AC’s trucks

This history of D&H Air Conditioning is that of a family business from its inception, in early 1959.
At the close of World War II, Arthur Duhamel, our founder, went to work in New York City as a journeyman sheet metal mechanic. In 1958 after working for over ten years on such projects as the Radio City Music Hall, Arthur Duhamel moved with his family from New York to Tucson.

In January of 1959, along with Harry Hawk, Arthur founded D&H Air Conditioning Company Inc., specializing in residential air conditioning. To form the company name, each took the first letter of their last names, thus establishing D&H AC.

With a reputation for honesty and a commitment to quality D&H AC began to grow quickly. As Tucson developed rapidly in the 60s, D&H expanded into other areas such as upgrading of existing A/C equipment and ductwork, service & repair, and commercial HVAC work.

Today, after serving Tucson and Southern Arizona for over 60 years, we enjoy the reputation as one of the finest full-service air conditioning companies in Tucson. With Brett Wright at the helm, D&H is still managed as a family business.

How can you tell D&H Air Conditioning is a family business?
