“Always do the right thing. It may not always be easy, but it is always right.” – Tim Murphy

Our technicians and installers provide comfort solutions that are specifically tailored to the needs of each individual customer.

Smit’s Solar Heating and Air Conditioning was founded in 1972 by Russ and Jan Smit as Smit’s Sheet Metal. Joining the mom and pop shop in 1978, Tim Murphy soon grew the company into a complete, full-service heating, air conditioning, and mechanical firm. Throughout the years, our company has adapted to meet the demands of our customers without sacrificing our commitment to quality and impeccable attention to detail.
