For more than 65 years Kane Heating and Ventilating has brought its own sense of warmth to the Charlotte community. Joe Hubbard and Chad Lewis first learned about the business and its traditions in mid-1980s when they began working for owner, Frank Kane.

In 1999, Joe, his wife Kathy, and Chad purchased Kane’s from Frank and his wife Bobbie with the idea of keeping the family tradition and providing a future for their children.

The owners have continued to keep the family tradition. Currently Joe and Kathy’s daughter, Jenn works in the office as the service dispatcher, schedules service calls, locates and retrieves repair parts and also does the duct cleaning.

In the past Kane’s has also employed two of Joe and Kathy’s others daughters, Jennifer and Antonia, granddaughter Alexis, who continues to help out when needed and son-in-law, Adam as well as Chad’s daughter, Courtney and sons, John and Chris. Chad’s other daughter, Haylee worked as a co-op student last year.
