Vice President & General Manager
Ben is a Florida native and graduated with a degree in Finance and Accounting from Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. Ben’s introduction to Balanced Air started at the age of 10 when he began answering phones at home for his dad and riding shotgun to service calls. I guess you could say he was destined for the family business.
After managing the finances for several local businesses, Ben officially joined Balanced Air in 2006 and partnered with Gary to take the company to the next level and grow it to what it is today. As Vice President, Ben oversees the day-to-day operations and continues to pave the way and prepare for the next generation of family leadership.
Ben has been married for 15 years and has 6 children. When Ben isn’t pouring himself into Balanced Air, you can find him advocating for foster and adoptive children, developing his love for aviation and spending time with his family.
President & Founder
Gary is a Michigan native that moved to Hollywood, Florida at the age of 10 years old. Gary was a member of the United States Army and faithfully served our country during the Vietnam War. It was in the Army that Gary began to develop his knowledge in HVAC. Upon his discharge, Gary spent 15 years committed to learning the trade and gaining the skills necessary to one day start his own company.
In 1987, Gary moved his family to New Port Richey, Florida and began working as a service technician and Mechanical Inspector for Pasco County, while getting his business off the ground. Balanced Air, Inc. was created out of dedication and a desire to develop long-standing customer relationships. Gary turned over day-to-day operations to his son, Ben but remains an active participant in the company.
Gary has been married for 39 years, has 3 children and 12 grandchildren. When Gary isn’t working you can find him serving at his church, traveling, shooting photography and spending time with his family.

You'll find honest business practices, fair pricing, and quality service at Balanced Air. Our company scripture, Deut. 25:15, reflects our philosophy and focus: "You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you."
