Merv Blank


Over forty years ago, I set out to create a company that upheld the highest values and provided the best quality in heating and cooling systems. Having built such a company and subsequently selling it with my name attached to it in the year 2000, the high standards and quality of work my former company had become known for suffered tremendously. After receiving negative feedback from former customers who thought I was still part of the new company, I decided to recreate a new company that would once again carry on my beliefs - a company that provides distinctive products and services that would far surpass our customer's expectations.

In 2007, I brought together a team of professionals and created Air Professional Associates LLC located in North Salem, NY. Our goal is to provide all of the heating and air conditioning services you may require at the highest levels of quality seen in this industry. We offer a vast range of knowledge and experience in the design, installation and service of heating, ventilating and air conditioning for residential and commercial applications.
