About Us At REEVE AIR CONDITIONING
In 1957 A young man by the name of Clyde Reeve establishes a company to meet the needs of an emerging industry in South Florida. Air conditioning for the residential market suddenly made the sub tropical summers more enjoyable. Not only would the "snow birds" migrate for the winter... they would stay all year. As with any new venture, there were the usual hardships. However, Clyde's "fair and reliable" reputation quickly spread. A short time later he met Bob Albea at a Philco service meeting, and they soon became partners.
1970 brought about the addition of several new manufacturers’ for whom Reeve A/C would provide Factory Authorized Service for both Broward and Dade County - covering the entire South Florida area. We continue to provide excellent personalized service to each customer, vendor, and dealer. In the early 1980’s there were a great many changes for Reeve A/C. Friedrich Manufacturing Company appointed Reeve Air Conditioning as their Regional Parts Distributor. In 1982 the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale offices were consolidated to one centrally located facility in Hallandale, Florida.

After working under the guidance of his father for many years, Stephen Reeve accepted his new role as second generation Reeve Air Conditioning President and senior partner.
