Intermountain Heating & Air Conditioning

A Little Background On Us

Our company originated in 1986. When Larry Ernst, a small-town Iowa farm boy, purchased an existing HVAC company and named it Intermountain Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. Soon after beginning to operate under the new name, Larry discovered Carrier products and quickly fell in love with the quality and reliability that Carrier offered. Unfortunately for Larry, Carrier wasn't available to purchase in Idaho at the time, but that didn't stop him from driving to Utah to purchase Carrier equipment. Larry wanted to offer his customers the best, and Carrier is the best.

Finally, when Carrier began to offer products in Idaho, Larry was first in line to become a Factory Authorized Dealer (FAD). Larry continued to serve the Magic Valley and surrounding areas for 33 years. His work ethic, love of people, and giant heart were widely known amongst his customers and those who knew him.

Legacy of Our Founder

We lost our beloved founder in August of 2019. We miss his infectious laugh and spontaneous sense of humor. Larry’s spirit will forever live amongst the employees of Intermountain Heating & Air. Before passing away, Larry asked his long-time friend and general manager Kosta to purchase the company.

In April of 2020, Intermountain Heating & Air Conditioning was purchased by Kosta and his family. As a family and veteran-owned business, we aim to continue forward with the principles that Larry set forth, with me slight modifications to benefit our customers by becoming more digitally accessible.

Kosta

Kosta

General Manager/ Owner

Our fearless leader and Larry's long-time friend and general manager. Boy, do we have Kosta and Larry stories. Those two were quite a team together. Larry knew that Kosta had the type of knowledge and experience that would allow him to diagnose and repair any job. We know that Kosta misses hearing the "you know what I am thinking" coming from Larry's desk and just knowing that they were both on the same page without having a conversation. Kosta's experience in the industry and friendship with Larry made him the perfect candidate to purchase Intermountain Heating & Air Conditioning.

We look forward to his leadership as he continues Larry's legacy but ads his own Kosta stamp on it.

Silvanna

Silvanna

Marketing/Owner

Kosta asked his daughter Silvanna and son-in-law, John, to purchase Intermountain Heating & Air conditioning. He knew that while he had experience in HVAC, he needed 'young blood,' as he put it, to help him navigate change management and technological advantages.

Silvanna is our marketing / social medial professional. While her experience lies largely in social media and Industrial/Organizational Psychology, she enjoys her new role in marketing.

John

John is our 'behind the scenes advisor.' He is a retired United States Air Force veteran.
