Our Real Super Hero Story
Our Founder, Robert Alva shares his story of Super Cool Air's beginnings:
What's with the name?
"I started Super Cool Air Conditioning at the age of 25 under some circumstances that made me feel like I had to become a super hero.
Back in 1979, I had been married for just two months when my wife and I decided to purchase our first home together. I was working for another air conditioning company at that time. We found the perfect home in Whittier, CA and were in escrow to purchase it when the company I was working for announced it was shutting down. I had to do something fast given that I had a new wife and a new home to purchase.
Two weeks later, I started Super Cool from our new home where my wife and I started the business together. Looking back at that time, I knew that I had to stay super cool and become a super hero for my family, hence the name "Super Cool Air Conditioning, Inc."
