For three-quarters of a century, Heat Controller has provided quality products for conditioning air.

Century® became part of the Heat Controller family in 1975 when the company was acquired and its product offering and market distribution were incorporated into the Heat Controller line. In 2000 Aitons’ Equipment, Inc., of Canada was added to the Heat Controller family.
