HVAC History & History of Riley Heating & CoolingForest Park, IL, Oak Park, IL, Elmwood Park, IL & River Forest, IL
In 1934, Mr. Jack Riley opened the doors of Riley Heating & Cooling Company. He believed that honesty along with prompt, courteous and professional service while installing the highest quality products are the most important aspects of a residential / light commercial heating and air conditioning company.
In 1967 Ellis R. Kahn purchased the business from Mr. Riley and continued to build the business on the tradition of honesty and professional service Riley Heating & Cooling customers had come to expect. Because of Ellis Kahn’s intense drive, the company grew, but the quality of service was never jeopardized.
In 1988 Ellis Kahn’s son Fred Kahn joined the business. In 1996 Ellis retired from the daily operations of Riley Heating & Cooling and Fred became the general manager while purchasing the business from his father.
