About Desert Air Conditioning

A Family-Owned and Operated HVAC Company Founded in 1954

Desert Air Conditioning began in 1954 when Les Shaw founded a local HVAC company and began a mission his family would continue to uphold two generations later. The vision he established was about more than just heating and air conditioning; it was about serving the community through quality workmanship, unbeatable incentives, and enduring customer relationships. Today, Desert Air Conditioning is led by Les’s son Todd, who has watched the company grow since the age of 12 and embodies our family’s reputation for hands-on knowledge and deep-seated passion for our craft.

Tina is another cornerstone of our operation and brings over two decades of accounting expertise to the team, ensuring every transaction with us is as smooth and transparent as a cool breeze on a hot desert afternoon. For 11 years, she has diligently safeguarded our financial integrity, enabling us to focus on what we do best: ensuring your ultimate comfort. It’s not just Todd and Tina that make Desert Air Conditioning the company it is – we boast a lineup of technicians who share our commitment to Les Shaw’s original vision, with two generations of techs bringing their experience and innovation to our valued customers.

This isn’t just a business; it’s a family narrative, one where professionalism intertwines with personal care. Each thermostat calibrated, every air conditioner installed, and all maintenance performed carry the hallmarks of a team that has evolved with the community it serves. With Desert Air Conditioning, you’re working with professionals who understand the heritage of home comfort and are devoted to creating a more comfortable future.
