Pro-Tec, a Naples-based plumbing company founded in 2008, has expanded its list of professional services to include heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC).

Formerly known as Pro-Tec Plumbing & Drains, Pro-Tec Plumbing & Air serves residential and commercial customers in Collier and Lee counties.

Pro-Tec’s plumbing division installs and repairs toilets, plumbing fixtures, water heaters, garbage disposals and water filtration systems. Additional plumbing services include leak detection, repiping, drain cleaning and sewer inspections. Pro-Tec’s HVAC division offers diagnostics and system repairs, as well as complete installations of condensers, air handling units, thermostats and ductwork.

“Over the past 13 years, our team has worked diligently to gain the trust of customers by providing quality plumbing and superior service with honest pricing,” said Pro-Tec President and Co-Owner Rick Hume, Jr., a master plumber. “That’s why we’re not surprised when customers ask us for referrals of other reliable, licensed contractors in Southwest Florida, especially in the area of HVAC. They trust us and our team’s recommendations.”

“No one wants to spend time researching and evaluating contractors every time they need a service around the house,” added Vice President and Co-Owner Brandon Hume. “They would rather have one partner they can trust to take care of their needs. Adding HVAC services is a natural progression for Pro-Tec and paves the way for additional services that could be added in the future.”

Pro-Tec also is partnering with Texas-based Aerus to offer Air Scrubber, an air purification system that installs directly into HVAC systems to remove surface and airborne contaminants, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors, dust, pet dander and other allergens. Independent lab testing confirmed Aerus’ Hydroxyl Blaster with ActivePure Technology has a 99.98% seven-hour surface kill rate of live SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. The Air Scrubber system is proven effective in treating bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi on surfaces and in the air.

With the introduction of HVAC services, Pro-Tec now is offering three types of annual maintenance plans that can combine service offerings: the Pro-Tec Premium HVAC-only Plan, the Pro-Tec Deluxe Plan and the Pro-Tec Ultimate Plan. Plans include routine inspections, discounts on repairs and priority scheduling.

Pro-Tec has hired John Peterson as lead HVAC technician and will continue to add technicians for its plumbing and HVAC divisions. Experience is preferred, but the company also offers paid training opportunities through its Pro-Tec School of Apprenticeship.
