About Us

Zimmer Heating and Cooling has been serving Greater Cincinnati since 1946, started by our Founder; Cliff Zimmer Sr. and has grown from a one-man operation into a third generation business. Kip Zimmer was active in the business at an early age and put an engineering degree to good use. Kip took over operation of the company in 1971. “When you know what you do well, success is inevitable”, says Kip Zimmer, retired. That’s been the secret for Zimmer Heating and Cooling.

Today partners; Chris Zimmer and Chris Tucker are dedicated to providing the best possible indoor comfort solution that fits your family’s unique needs. Our business has expanded to include residential, retail and light commercial heating and cooling. Our Company is licensed in Ohio and Kentucky. We are a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer as well as a multi Carrier Presidents Award recipient. Our install and service technicians are factory trained, NATE certified; Master & Journeyman’s license in Ohio & Kentucky.

Our service technicians repair and perform maintenance on all makes and models of equipent. Without proper maintenance to your heating and air conditioning system; decreased efficiency, utility overpayment, loss of productivity, higher repair costs, premature replacement are the results. We provide quick, professional service and complete preventative maintenance plans to keep your system operating at peak efficiency; extending the life of the system.

Every customer receives a complete needs analysis. A member of our sales team will go into the house; measure the site and conduct a heat loss and or gain analysis using ACCA engineering design principles to determine the heating and cooling capacities. We spend time with the homeowners to determine their needs and requirements. We believe a professional job requires professional assessment and professional presentation.

We customize your ductwork with our own in house sheet metal fabrication center, one of the very few in the Cincinnati area. The fabrication shop has been in existence as long as the company and we can design and custom build ductwork for virtually any installation. This customization creates a more efficient system.

"Another Reason for the Company’s Success Is a Clearly Articulated Focus Which Is Evident in the Company’s Goals" - Chris Zimmer
