A.N. Roth Heating and Cooling is proud to announce that we were chosen as the winner of the Small Business of the Year Category at this year’s Family Business Awards.

The 2021 Family Business Awards, presented by Louisville Business First and in partnership with the Family Business Center at the University of Louisville, recognized many local companies for excellence. Every finalist was a multigenerational family business headquartered in Greater Louisville or Southern Indiana. As a fifth-generation family business local to Louisville since 1866, we were honored to be nominated and considered a finalist alongside these other great local businesses.

Our History and Approach

A.N. Roth Heating and Cooling is unusual even among family businesses, as fewer than 3% of family-owned businesses operate into the fourth generation and beyond. We believe that adaptability is the key to our long-term success. Since our ancestor Jacob F. Roth first immigrated to Louisville from Bavaria in the 19th-century, A.N. Roth has been adapting to meet the needs of our staff and customers.

We stay adaptable within our field by continuously evolving. This means keeping abreast of new technologies and methodologies to offer our customers the most progressive home comfort solutions. We also monitor consumer trends and listen to our customers to learn what to expect and where to improve. This is why, while A.N. Roth has been Louisville’s heating and cooling experts for over 150 years, we still lead the industry with state-of-the-art technology and innovative techniques. We are one of the only local HVAC firms to specialize in sustainable and Earth-friendly geothermal systems, energy-saving radiant flooring, and whole-house air filtration systems.
