Commercial Replacements Manager
I was exposed to the HVACR industry at a very young age in Cleveland, Ohio. My grandfather, C. Jno. Tyler, owned/operated Tyler Refrigeration Inc. He not only supplied refrigeration equipment, but also designed, constructed and built grocery stores, meat packing facilities, food processing and storage centers. My father, Leonard Forester, was chief engineer and I tagged along with him to many different job sites when I was younger. After I graduated high school, I attended West Side Institute of Technology, which taught refrigeration, steam technology, water chemistry, and electronics. I began working with my grandfather and father after graduation. Tyler Refrigeration was sold in the 80's and after a short time of being away from the trade, I opened up my own business, Enertech. I mostly stuck to my roots of refrigeration, but also dabbled in energy management controls, mainly electrical monitoring and demand controls. I grew tired of the winters in northern Ohio so, in 1994, I sold my company and moved to Florida. I worked for MCR (Marco Cooling & Refrigeration) for 18 years, before joining the team at Conditioned Air Corp. LLC in 2012.
