“I like the fact that I get to know my clients on a more personal level and not just as a name on an invoice," says Richard Miller, founder and patriarch of family-owned Abraham Heating and Cooling, Inc. His daughter, Amanda Miller-Sweener, helps him achieve his ideals of personalized service by handling the office work, conducting an orchestra of telephone rings, and scheduling appointments for humidification, generator, and heating and cooling services. Amanda’s husband and head HVAC technician Justin Sweener visits residences and commercial sites to install units from Thermo Pride, Energy Kinetics, Goodman, and Boyertown Foundry. Dedicated to energy-efficient appliances, the team offers geothermal heat pumps that yield 4–5 kilowatts of heat for every kilowatt of electricity, and employ ground temperature to cool homes and monitor the moods of earthworms.
