Eastside Heating was founded almost 60 years ago, in 1959, by Bob Chambers in downtown Bellevue. In 1968 they relocated to 1831-130th Ave NE in the Spring District, and have been open there for 50 years. Bob’s son Mike, and Mike’s partner Chris Tank, bought out Bob’s interest in 1992. Eastside has been a Trane Comfort Specialist independent dealer, the highest status Trane HVAC offers, since the founding of that program in 1998.
Evergreen State Sheet Metal, Inc. (ESSM) was founded 50 years ago as an Everett/Snohomish County based company in 1968. Russ & Pam Kimball, who live in Bridle Trails Bellevue, are the third owners who bought ESSM in 1998 twenty years ago. They changed the name in 2001 to Evergreen State Heat & AC to more accurately reflect the business they do.
