Halco opened its doors in 1984. The business started as Halco Plumbing & Heating DBA, a residential plumbing and heating service and installation contractor. The company continued to grow until 1993 when we incorporated as Halcyon, Inc.

Our Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Expertise

In 1994, we started doing more and more mechanical and commercial service and installation work. It was at that time that we started doing this work as "Halco Mechanical". Halco Mechanical has continued to grow and has become a substantial part of our business. We currently do a lot of design and CAD work for our mechanical jobs. This work is referred to as "design-build" type work as opposed to traditional plan-spec work.

In 2004, we formed Halco Electric to perform commercial electrical service. Then in 2007, we combined Halco Mechanical and Halco Electric into what we know today as "Halco MEPS". The mission of Halco MEPS is to provide complete mechanical, electrical, plumbing and sprinkler design-build services to the marketplace.

Home Energy Specialists

Also in that time period, we started Home Energy Performance by Halco. We have invested in a lot of training through the Building Performance Institute (BPI Certified Contractor), National Comfort Institute, and the Comfort Institute to bring to our customers the "whole house as a system" approach. This part of our business continues to grow each and every day. Things like energy assessments (assessments or evaluations) fall into this part of the Halco sphere.

In 2009, we formed Halco Renewable Energy, which designs and builds solar electric and geothermal heating systems for residential and commercial clients. This allows us to put the final piece in place and work with clients to reduce the energy they are using and produce the energy they need. This approach is focused on reducing costs, providing comfort, and helping our clients take serious steps towards sustainability.
