Berks HVAC business raises $2,560 to celebrate office opening

Nov. 22—Advanced Comfort Specialists celebrated the opening of its new office in Cumru Township by raising $2,000 for K9 for Cameryn, a fundraiser sponsored by the Shillington Fire Department to raise money for the purchase of a service dog for Cameryn Huber.

Cameryn, a 7-year-old boy, has Autism, ADHD, DMDD, and other disabilities that make daily life and routines for him and his family challenging.

The heating, air conditioning and commercial refrigeration business also raised $560 for Olivet Boys & Girls Club, a youth advocacy organization serving more than 3,000 children and families in Reading and Berks County.

Advanced Comfort Specialists co-owners Chad Milligan and Paul Catanzaro attribute their business success, as well as the success of their fundraisers, to effectively establishing a family-like culture and environment between employees, customers, and management.

“Advanced Comfort Specialists has spent the last 17 years serving Berks County and beyond in any way necessary,” said Catanzaro, vice president, in a statement. “The motto, ‘We Can’t Sleep at Night Until You Can,’ truly encompasses our efforts in helping in any way possible.”

To raise money effectively for both initiatives, Advanced Comfort Specialists enlisted the help of its technicians, customers and local community members.

Milligan, ACS’ president, said, “The dedication and selflessness of our technicians, customers, and our community that led to raising $2,560 is incredibly inspiring for our team. It also serves as a reminder to all of us that we hold incredible power when we come together as a community.”

ACS’ newest office, which features 6,000 square feet of space, is located at 217 Montrose Blvd. Purchased in mid-May, the majority of the construction took place over five months. Featuring a fully-stocked warehouse, loading dock, and metal shop, the company says it will be able to operate in a more efficient, cost-effective manner.
