 Partner/owner Rick Hatch began his career in the oil heat industry in 1979 with a local oil company.  Here he met his future wife and partner, Wanda, who started working in the office in 1983.  In 1987, Rick and Wanda were married, and shortly after, Wanda left the oil business to hone her office management and bookkeeping skills in a New London based doctor’s office.  In 1988 they had their first child, a son Kyle, and Wanda became a stay at home mom.  Three years later in 1991 they had their second child, Samantha.  In 1993 Rick branched out from the oil company to become self-employed with a local heating company.  In 1998 Wanda rejoined him and took charge of the office.  When 2004 rolled around, the two decided to go into business for themselves, and established their own HVAC and Energy Solution company, R&W Heating Energy Soltuions.  Now, with Ricks’ 30 plus years of experience in the field, and Wandas’ 20 plus years of expertise in the office, the pair has steadily built a successful, small business.  They keep up to date with continuous research into the latest and most innovative products and services, and with the addition of their children, their nephew, and employees who have become part of the family, R&W Heating Energy Solutions grows each year.

In 1999, Rick’s nephew Greg Chapel joined him and started his career in the HVAC field after completing his 8000 hour apprenticeship.  In 2004, he accompanied Rick and Wanda on their new business endeavor, and the three worked together to make the business grow.  With 11 years experience, Greg is a Lead Technician specializing in residential heating and holds an Unlimited Journeyman license.

Jeff Preston started his career in the HVAC field in 1995, at a family business in the northern region of New London County.  He too completed his 8000 hour apprenticeship, and in 2007, joined the R&W Heating crew.  With over 15 years experience, Jeff also holds an Unlimited Journeyman license, and is a Lead Technician specializing in Air Conditioning and heat pumps.

In his younger days, Kyle went on service calls, and helped the guys out on the weekends making dump runs.  In 2009, he was officially added to the family business as an apprentice.  He is now near completetion of his four years/8000 hours of school and On the Job training the state requires becoming a licensed technician.  He is also one of two BPI Certified Technicians.

Each year, Rick, Greg, Jeff, and Kyle keep up to date with an average of twenty-five hours in refresher courses, and seminars on the newest and most efficient products in today’s market.  Some classes they have completed include, but are not limited to: Mitsubishi Electric/Electronics, Riello Burners, Home Energy Evaluations, Rotobrush, Gas Ignition Controls, Renovator Initial – Safe Lead Removal, Energy Kinetics, and Honeywell Product Training. 

Samantha accompanied Rick on service calls and could be found helping out on the weekends cutting oil tanks.  She joined the family business part time in 2009, and became a full time employee in 2010.  Sam now handles all the marketing and advertising for the company, and is one of two BPI Certified Technicians.
