About Us


Welcome to Bakers Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc!

Bakers Heating and Air Conditioning has been around since 1982. The original founder was Gene Baker who lived on Pine Island. Gene and his wife Ethel started the business with the principles to help people and make a living for his family. In 1983, his stepson Mike Gardner moved to Pine Island from Kentucky and stepped in to help continue to grow the business and provide honest service for their customers and friends. Through the years several family members have come and gone. 

In 2001, Mike and Eugene bought the business from their dad. At that time, their motto was "SAME OLD VALUES NEW INSIGHT AND ENERGY". They also broadened the service area and now service all of Lee County. Since 2001, Eugene has left the business to pursue other interests. Mike is the primary owner, but his son Michael is following in his footsteps and is diligently working to one day be able to take over the family business. 

As in the past, the business values have always been "This is God's business; we are just doing the foot work for him". Therefore, the customers always come first. We aim to provide prompt, efficient, and most of all, honest work for a fair price. We are a 24 hour, 7 days a week business. Office hours are 8 am - 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, with an answering service for after hours calls. We strive to provide same day service and repair of all major brands. Bakers Heating & Air Conditioning provides service and maintenance of equipment, free estimates for replacement of out-of-date or inoperable equipment, duct work, along with new construction and remodels. Additionally, we both service and replace non-functioning pool heaters.

We are continuing to move forward with Gene's ideas and goals. As we work towards the 3rd generation run family business, we are expanding our energy and insight a little further, yet continuing with fair, just, and moral responsibility. We are expanding the pursuit of "green" yet user friendly and cost efficient ideas. We at Bakers don't just sell you new equipment or parts; we sell you knowledge about the equipment that is time tested over 3 generations. We service many units still operating that were installed by our founder, Gene Baker.

Over the years, the office has been run by Gene's wife Ethel, Mike's wife Melanie, with the help of others including Michael's wife, Morgan, Brandon's wife Ashly , and Elizabeth, Mike and Melanie's daughter.  We strive as a family-run business to use family first to ensure that proper values are being used with our customers. At Bakers, we sell Goodman and Rheem systems with the ability to buy, repair and install most other brands, including but not limited to, Bryant, Carrier, Payne, Trane, American Standard, Heil, Frigidaire, Maytag, Ruud, Amana, Nordyne, Tempstar, York, and more.
