Meet LCS Heating and Cooling’s Indianapolis HVAC Expert Team

We (Travis & Renee) wanted to create a business that would create positive experiences for other people. To us, a positive experience is something that makes someone feel happy, improves the quality of life, or provides something of high quality. We can provide these experiences to people by offering solutions so that they can be comfortable in their homes, providing the best customer service that they’ve ever experienced, and making the whole process as stress-free as possible.

We provide these experiences to our employees by helping them grow in their careers, helping them to set and achieve goals, providing opportunities to learn new skills, and creating a fun environment to be in. In a time when many HVAC companies are selling to private equity firms, Travis and Renee remain the local owners and are dedicated to serving the LCS team, as well as the homeowners of Indianapolis and surrounding areas.
