About us


Don Upton started the business back in 1983. He operated the business with unparalleled integrity. His philosophy has always been to give fair prices and take care of the customer. If a customer is happy, they will tell others about you. This philosophy helped make Upton Heating and Air Conditioning a successful company for 30 years. At 85 years young Don finally went into retirement and turned over the reins to Matthew Hegenbart in 2014. Don said in the 30 years he was in business he never met anyone who he would trust with his customers until he met Matt.

Matt has been in the heating and air business since 1997. He has vast experience in both residential and commercial HVAC. His experience working in commercial clean rooms such as Dell Computers, Texas Instruments, Motorola and other high-tech companies led him to Honeywell where he was at the forefront of home connectivity technology as a liaison with startups at the very first trials. With Honeywell, Matt set up load he adding pilot programs for utility companies across the country to help control energy demand during peak use periods. After the explosion of internet and wireless technology the industry became what it is today. Matt is an expert in the most up-to-date commercial controls and variable flow refrigerant systems.
