Our History

Chas Roberts started as a two-man (well, a one-man, one-woman) operation. Chas and Alice Roberts opened their doors in August of 1942. While remaining a family-owned and operated business since day one, we’ve grown to become the largest HVAC provider in Arizona. We invite you to take a look at our history to see how we got to where we are today.

The Chas Roberts family mourns the loss of our highly respected Plans Manager, Bob Jones. A dedicated employee of over 35 years, Bob loved coming to work every day and always managed to bring a smile to anyone he encountered. Bob had a great wealth of HVAC knowledge, was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.

RIP Robert E. Jones, Sr.
