In 1976, Ted Danz Heating & Air Conditioning opened its doors in the Capital District. Ted and his mom, Lucille, were the only employees. She worked every facet of the business and as Ted describes, “She pretty much ran the place!” Family Danz Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc was founded once Ted’s three sons joined the family business.
Ted grew up in Colonie, NY to a hardworking family. From a young age, Ted was taught to respect family morals and values. He went on to serve his country in the U.S. Navy and finished his military career with a strong sense of duty and commitment to his community. Once back in the Capital District, he settled into the town of Bethlehem. It was always a dream of Ted’s to start a family business and at the same time, give back to the community. From that vision, Family Danz was born. Instinctively, the fitting motto for Ted’s company was: “We Treat Our Customers Like Family.”
By starting a business that focused on the residential side of heating and air conditioning, Ted was able to focus on the community, ensuring his neighbors were kept warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Once the three sons were fully integrated into the establishment he expanded the company by offering commercial projects as well. Ted III is the director of design and layout, Timothy heads the commercial department while Todd is the day to day operations director.
