The history of R.B. Queern & Co. follows a line of handymen that stretches back to the company’s founder, Edward Brooks, who started delivering oil to homes by horse-drawn wagon in the early 20th century. Edward handed the business down to his son and then his grandson, who currently operates the 24-hour heating-system repair and maintenance business. Home heating has come a long way since Edward’s day: the company now offers a wide array of services for air conditioners, water heaters, and radiators, all performed by licensed and certified technicians.
