It’s hard to meet someone in the northeast Florida HVAC, home service, or construction industries who hasn’t met Wayne Estes. He has been in the field for over 45 years, 30 of them as the Owner of Estes Heating and Air Conditioning and all of them in the Jacksonville area. Born in Orlando and raised in Jacksonville, he started in the trade as a teenage apprentice, helping his older brother install duct systems into Florida homes that were built well before the advent of residential central heating and cooling. With that kind of experience, it’s no surprise that Wayne is well-known amongst our customers for his unique problem-solving abilities. When a truly difficult problem arises, the customers always ask for the same thing: “When can Wayne come and look at it?”
When Wayne isn’t in the office planning a project or out in the field helping a customer, you can usually find him on his boat fishing the local waterways or out on a country road riding his motorcycle. Wayne also enjoys volunteering his time in support of local veteran and civic groups as he knows his role as a local business owner is to help give back to the community that has given him and his business so much support over the years. Wayne’s motto is “The customer is always right,” a creed that he expects all of his employees to embody every day of the week, in every interaction, with every customer.
