About Us

5 Generations of Hann Family Experience

Located in Cleveland Heights, brothers Verne & Ellsworth Hann started their HVAC business in 1952. They were among the region’s first to develop expertise in newly popular central air-conditioning. Ellsworth’s son, William A. Hann, took ownership 21 years later and expanded with plumbing, whole-house repiping, and innovative service contracts that gave customers worry-free maintenance.

In 2000, William’s sons, Chris and Bill Hann, bought the company. They expanded in 2015, moving two blocks north, still located on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights. Today, Verne & Ellsworth Hann is a 5th generation company, serving the heating and cooling needs of Northeast Ohio homeowners.

The brothers and their team are certified to provide a wide range of heating, cooling, and plumbing services, including installation, maintenance, and repair.

Verne & Ellsworth Hann was founded on the principles of professionalism, integrity, and outstanding customer service. These values live on today under the leadership of brothers Chris and Bill Hann, who provide customers all over Cleveland with quality services and products at honest prices.
