Official Heating & Cooling buys Biewer in Elgin

Published: Tuesday, July 22, 2014 5:27 p.m. CST

McHENRY – Official Heating & Cooling plans to expand further into the Elgin market after buying Biewer Heating & Air Conditioning Co.

It is the McHenry-based company’s second acquisition in two years. Official Heating & Cooling, owned by Adam and Cheryl Kern, bought Wheeling-based Acme Heating in March 2013.

“We’ve been looking for growth,” Adam Kern said.

Biewer Heating and Air had built a strong customer base and a sterling reputation in the past 30 years, Kern said.

Owner Jim Biewer plans to retire.

“I was very particular when interviewing potential buyers because I wanted to make sure that the new owners would provide the same quality of service and concern for my customers as I have for the last 30 years,” Biewer said in a news release.

Official Heating & Cooling serves northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
