Happy Anniversary, Alpine Ductless!!

March 13, 2015

Once upon a time, one of our owners, Cory Eckert, installed a system in his own house wondering if Ductless Heat Pumps were a potential business in their own right. Cory had heard about Ductless Systems in his custom home building business. He knew they were incredibly comfortable, quiet and efficient, but he had yet to experience the wonders of having one in his own home. A firm believer in knowing what you sell, Cory installed a system in his own home and the seed for Alpine Ductless was planted.

A few weeks later, on a ski lift at White Pass, Cory approached Mike Meisenheimer about partnering up to sell and install these awesome systems. Mike quickly became just as excited as Cory and Alpine Ductless was born soon after.

As a first order of business, Cory and Mike focused on building the right team, making sure that team became experts in ductless heat pump technology, gaining installation experience and becoming rebate program specialists. It wasn’t long before Alpine Ductless became a Master Installer under the NW Ductless Project guidelines.

With the right pieces in place, Cory and Mike focused on growing the business. In the last year alone Alpine Ductless installed almost 500 ductless heat pumps, and our growth continues to accelerate. From our original focus in Olympia, Alpine Ductless now serves customers from Seattle to Chehalis and from Hoodsport to Bonney Lake.

Of course Alpine Ductless wouldn’t exist if not for our wonderful customers, partners and teammates. Helping people learn about and experience the benefits of ductless heat pumps is an incredible source of pride. But Cory and Mike agree that all the people they’ve met and friends they’ve made along the way might be even more rewarding.
