About Nelson Heating

Our story starts with Carlton Baker who opened Baker Radio & Electric in 1934 in Cainsville, Missouri on the east side of the square. During WWII when he was limited in stock due to rationing, he closed and moved to Kanas City for 4 years. In 1951, he returned to Cainsville and purchased a building on the west side of the square, Carlton continued operating in that location for 28 years. In December of 1979 he sold his business to Don Bain of Ness City, Kansas. Mr. Bains wife was not happy in Cainsville and in 1981 after only 2 years, he sold to Dennis Nelson. Dennis Nelson operated at that location for 30 years and in 2011 sold the business to its current owner, Jared Rardon.

Jared chose to keep the well known and respected Nelson name that the community and surrounding areas had come to know. He began an effort to grow the business by focusing primarily on HVAC and taking on larger commercial clients and hiring more technicians. In 2016, he had outgrown the buildings in Cainsville and chose to move to Bethany where he leased a building for 3 years and finally purchasing a property owned by the City of Bethany in October 2018. We moved into our current location of 104 N 41st St in November 2019.

We are proud of our long history in Cainsville and are appreciative of the people that have supported us along the way. We look forward to many more years of service in Bethany and the surrounding communities.

Every system is different. After a thorough inspection of your electrical system, ductwork and other components, your contractor will provide a rundown of what you need to replace and what you can keep.

That's a Great Question.

That depends on the house and the system. While air conditioners and gas furnaces require different components, the common denominator is ductwork, which must be properly sized and zoned for proper system performance. Your contractor can evaluate your existing setup and tell you how simple your installation will be.

An air handler circulates conditioned air throughout your home. You can combine it with accessories to filter, humidify or dehumidify the air stream as needed.
