Industry Leading Trade Publication Picks Manager at a Local Heating and Cooling Company as One of the Top Young People in the HVAC

Local Manager Named As Top Young Talent By National Publication

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. - Aug. 23, 2016 // PRNewswire // - When Abel Christopher was just 15-years-old his uncle offered him a summer job working for the family air conditioning and heating business. That early exposure to coils, compressors and valves led to what has become a rewarding and exciting career. Today, Abel Christopher is the production and installation manager for One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning®, formerly Modern Mechanical LLC, serving Northern Virginia. At just 29-years-old Abel Christopher has already had great success, and that's one of the reasons he was selected as one of the Top 40, Under 40by ACHR the News, the leading trade publication for the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) industry.

"It's an honor to be included on this prestigious list which includes manufactures, vendors, and contractors. With new advances in technology and smart home applications, the HVAC industry is an exciting place to be, and I am learning something new all the time," said Abel Christopher.

The Top 40 Under 40 list recognizes young leaders in the HVAC industry. Abel Christopher was highlighted for helping Modern Mechanical LLC, and now One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, grow into a nationally recognized, award winning company. He also started and manages the company's metal recycling program, which has kept more than 100 tons of metal and debris out of landfills each year. His goal is to create a universally recognized installation process for contractors in the HVAC industry to follow.

"We are extremely proud of Abel and appreciate all his contributions. Many assume the heating and cooling industry is just for older guys, but I think this shows that we offer an excellent career choice for young people and millennials too," said Shawn Mitchell, CEO & President of One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® and Mister Sparky® based in Loudoun County. 

Abel Christopher is highlighted in the August edition of ACHR the News.
