The Beginning of Bradley Mechanical

Bradley Mechanical technicians are certified, professional, polite, and punctual. Our techs will diagnose the problem in a quick and efficient manner. We always examine the entire system as a whole. After the problem is found, we will continue to examine the system looking for anything that could cause a failure in the future. These issues will be brought to the homeowner’s attention and left to them to make the final decisions. Once all the issues are diagnosed, the tech will quote the repair/repairs to the homeowner using a flat rate price to ensure that the job costs what is quoted, no surprise charges. If anything comes up during the repair, the customer will be notified before our tech proceeds.

Calling Bradley Mechanical to do your service will be unlike any HVAC experience you have had in the past. We price on a flat rate pricing system, so if a job is quoted one price, it is going to remain that price even if it takes longer than expected. This takes the terror out of wondering how much this service call will cost you when it’s completed. Our techs are knowledgeable and professional, and most of all, honest. We will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing else. You don’t stay in business for over 50 years and have a strong loyal customer base from being dishonest about repairs and problems that don’t even exist. We pride ourselves on honest high-quality work and have been delivering on that promise for many, many years.

Our Proud History

In 1969, Dempsey L. Bradley, 34 years old and married with four small children, made the decision to start his own business. While working for another HVAC company, Mr. Bradley had developed strong relationships with architects and engineers in the area. They were confident in his ability to provide a good job with quality work. With a second-hand truck, a good reputation, a wife willing to work in the office, and much prayer, he formed Bradley Mechanical Company.

He started the business with one thing in mind, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”

In the year 2000, Bradley Mechanical became a corporation with three members. Dempsey L. Bradley, Sr., Gayle G. Bradley, and Dempsey L. (Brad) Bradley, Jr. At this time, Brad began managing the business and showing interest more in the residential line of work. As the company began to grow, Brad’s wife, Sue, became the next family member to join the team.

Today, with Mr. Bradley’s original desire to provide top quality work, the company has dozens of dedicated and certified employees and still has a strong desire to provide the best for all our customers.
