About Us

Family-Owned and Operated

Married in the mid 80’s, John and Jen decided to start their own Commercial HVAC company in 1992. Both had spent years working in the HVAC industry. Starting from the ground up, and working shoulder-to-shoulder, together they have grown Preferred Mechanical Services into the commercial HVAC service and installation company you see today.

Their son, Alex, now works alongside them and is one of the most talented digital control programmers in the industry. Alex also manages the service division and grew up with Preferred Mechanical Services’ mantra: “Integrity will always prevail, and the job is not done until the customer is satisfied.” This basic credo has served them well as is proven by their success. Decades later Preferred Mechanical Services is a robust HVAC commercial service and installation company providing HVAC construction, installation, and service throughout all of New England.


As one of the area’s leading HVAC construction firms in Massachusetts offering design-build services, Preferred Mechanical Services delivers projects ranging from conventional office buildings, exclusive homes, sports facilities, ice arenas, schools, and warehouse/production facilities to more complex installations such as positive pressure laboratories and clean rooms. Preferred’s extensive experience allows them to bring innovative ideas to contractors, partners and owners as well as engineers.

John, Jen and Alex have the privilege of working with a team of very talented professionals allowing them to offer both plan and spec services and design-build concepts. Preferred Mechanical Services’ field staff includes licensed refrigeration technicians, licensed sheet metal installers, certified welders, digital control electricians/programmers, master plumbers, and master pipefitters. The service division offers maintenance, warranty coverage, and technical support throughout the course of a project and has become a highly regarded and competitive entity covering both new and existing installations to ensure equipment reliability.
