Meet Will Vohs, owner of HVAC business in Newcomerstown
Will Vohs has brought a long family history to his new business, Voh’s Heating, Cooling & Appliances in Newcomerstown. Vohs started the business in May, and focuses on heating and air conditioning, both installation and repair. His parents had an appliance repair shop, A-1 in Newcomerstown, while he was growing up, while his uncles and grandfather and other family members did HVAC work. Here, he shares details about his new business, and also his strong family life in Newcomerstown.
Question: Please tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and what you enjoy in your down time.
Answer: “I love my family and our life. Together, we play football and any other sport of the season. My girlfriend has a 6-year-old, 9-year-old, 10-year-old and 19-year-old, so between them, their activities, church and running a business, there really isn’t much free time. However, we love movie nights and game nights. I enjoy family and time with them the most.”
How long has Voh’s Heating, Cooling and Appliances been in business?
“My roots include growing up in my parents’ used appliance shop (A-1 Sales and Service) on Main Street in Newcomerstown. My parents, Bill and Peggy Vohs, have owned A-1 since 1983. They have provided a lot of assistance to me in starting my own business in May of this year.”
What services does Voh’s Heating, Cooling & Appliances offer? How far will you travel for work?
“My services include air conditioning repair and installation, furnace repair and installation, water heater installation and repair, as well as all major appliance repair. I cover Stark, Summit, Guernsey, Coshocton, Tuscarawas and Muskingum counties.”
What do you enjoy most about your profession?
“Growing up in a used appliance shop really makes you see things a little differently than other people. I grew up being able to assist my dad as much as I could. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I love explaining the issue to customers, and being able to fix it. I had a great childhood, learning about HVAC and appliance repair from the best, my grandpa, dad, uncle and my cousin. HVAC is truly a family trait, as they all own their own HVAC companies.”
Tell us about your website.
“My website, vohsheating.com, is very detailed and signifies we are a one-call company for all of your furnace, air conditioning and appliance needs. We offer free estimates on installs and provide savings for whole-house change-outs. After four generations of being involved in servicing appliances, we can also recommend the best products, if you are looking to purchase something new. This is the time of the year your furnace should be inspected. If one part isn’t working, it can strain the rest of the system, and you may end up with more expensive repairs. Please check out our website for more tips about maintaining your furnace, air conditioner and more.”
What else would you like to highlight?
“I love the community and the people. Newcomerstown is one of the few places where church is a big part of the town. It’s also a small town, where everybody knows everyone, and for this I am grateful. In addition, I would like to say thank you for the support I have received since starting my business. My customers are very important to me.”
