  • Keith Saunders

    Keith Saunders


    Keith was born and raised in Cleburne, TX. After graduation, he attended Hill College and currently resides in Granbury. He is married with 4 children. His family time typically revolves around baseball because most of his boys have played at a competitive level. Most people don’t see that he has a silly side to him but sometimes he will even make up words to describe something whether the word exists or not. Many times though it’s a real word that used in the wrong context so, it makes his stories sound ridiculous. Keith has been in the HVAC industry since 1988. He started his 1st company in 1998. When asked why he chose Aire Serv, he said: “I really enjoy helping people and customer service is a pet peeve of mine. It irritates me that the service industry lacks service and my goal is to put service back into the service industry. I chose to partner with Aire Serv in March of 2009. By being part of a national franchise with proven business principles and practices that are taught by Neighborly, formerly the Dwyer Group, I have learned how to properly own and operate a small business. In addition to the principles, Neighborly has laid out a Code of Values that we strive to live by daily as we touch the lives of our clients.”

Aire Serv is the best company I have worked for because (1) the owner truly cares about the internal and external clients (2) the team that Keith has assembled is by far the best I have had the pleasure of working with (3) the structure and resources available through Aire Serv puts them far above the competition in regards to providing our clients the best solutions for their home comfort needs, and (4) the technical and soft skills training, access to tools and resources that are needed to stay on top of the ever evolving HVAC industry."
