Our Complete History
Anchor Heating and Air Conditioning is an extension of V. Ficchi, Inc., a family owned and operated business for nearly a century. Vergenio Ficchi, an Italian immigrant and coppersmith by trade, started the business in 1917. He worked for a stove company as a repairman and salesman before opening his own hardware and furnace sales store. Vergenio’s son, Vincent Ficchi, Sr., was an integral part of considerably expanding on his father’s foundation. He knew the future was in more than only furnace sales, and expanded into installation and repair. Today, our company specializes in commercial and industrial heating and air conditioning systems. We pride ourselves on having built a network of business partners that is as solid as our projects.
Throughout the years, Anchor Heating and Air Conditioning has been a pioneer in the HVAC field. Not only did Vergenio and Vincent Sr. recognize the future of heating systems, they instilled an industrious and innovative mindset for future generations. In the 1970’s, we were the first in the area to incorporate the use of a helicopter for the installation of a roof top heating and cooling unit. Currently, we understand the necessity of eliminating practices that are harmful to the environment and take steps to ensure we are doing our part. We value the knowledge and insight we have acquired through decades of experience, and pass that onto our customers through our dedication to maintaining comfort, quality, and integrity.
