Brandt Heating and Air Conditioning


In 1953, Tim Brandt founded Brandt Sheet Metal Co. in his parents’ garage and with $40.  He started the business with one conviction–his customers.  The $40 disappeared quickly, but the conviction grew stronger.

Tim moved Brandt Sheet Metal Co. three times, in 1953 to East Market Street, in 1956 to North Linn Street, and finally in 1966 to its current home on Highland Court.  In 1961, he changed the name to Brandt Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc and tagged it with the slogan “Only the rich can afford poor heat”.

Tim retired in 2002 in which his son, Bill, succeeded him as President.  He continues to build upon the foundation of customer service as its highest priority.  Now with the 2nd and 3rd generations, Bill, TJ, James, Alissa, and the entire staff of Brandt Heating and Air Conditioning are dedicated to providing the best service and products possible.  In the Spring of 2014, Brandt Heating expanded again when it opened its Fireplace showroom named Fireplaces by Brandt Heating.

Brandt Heating and Air Conditioning takes pride in their involvement in the Iowa City community.  Bill is involved in the Newman Catholic Student Center and Rotary, TJ is involved in St. Patrick’s Church and Kiwanis, James is involved in youth Iowa City baseball and soccer leagues, and Alissa is involved in the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital’s Family Advisory Committee, March of Dimes, and City of Iowa City Ambassadors.
