Jason Pieper stands next to his business’ van which has been driven around the four-county area a lot in the past year for service calls and new installations.

Businesses which do things right are healthy and grow, so Pieper Indoor Aire-Care of Kiel must be doing things right.

As of June of this year, owner Jason Pieper will be in business for four years. In the past year the business has finally grown to the point where he has been able to employ his brother Jon full time. During December and January, brother Jeremy and another man were also employed full time.

Asked why he thinks his business has grown over these last few years, Jason said, “I’m reliable and affordable. We’ve got 24-hour service. I can get there as soon as I can for people.”

In the area of service calls, Pieper Indoor Aire-Care continues to service all makes and models of furnaces and air conditioning units, and installs a wide range of name brand new equipment including Burnham boilers, Payne furnaces (made by Carrier), Ducane Furnaces, Mitsibushi ductless air conditioners, and Aprilaire whole-house humidifiers. Jason said they have a lot of central air conditioning systems sold already and awaiting installation in the spring.

All those systems have one thing in common—ever increasing efficiency and use of technology. “They’re always
