DASSEL, MN Charity Heating and Cooling Services is a new business in Dassel that is run by Brian Zeglen.
“I’ve been in the heating and cooling business for over 20 years, always as an employee,” Zeglen said, explaining that he is excited to begin his own venture.
Zeglen and his wife, Michele, are originally from Fridley, and have been living in Dassel the past 10 years.
They have nine children who are home-schooled four boys and five girls, ages 2 to 16.
Zeglen’s oldest son, Garrett, plans to help his father with the family business. Zeglen’s 13-year-old twin sons, Luke and Eddie, are also interested in the HVAC industry and hope to become involved.
Zeglen’s interest in heating and cooling systems began after high school, when he and a friend were looking at some options at the local technical college.
The instructor of the classes for heating and cooling told Zeglen, “If you learn how to do heating and cooling, you’ll always have a job.”
Zeglen noted that the statement is true, especially in Minnesota.
Before he started Charity Heating and Cooling Services, Zeglen worked at UHL Company Inc. in Maple Grove, as well as other companies in the Twin Cites area.
The idea to name his business “Charity” came from the Bible, Zeglen said.
“In the Bible, the words charity and love are interchangeable,” he stated, adding that he doesn’t want to be a salesman, and wants to solve people’s problems with a caring attitude.
Zeglen said his favorite things about owning a business are that he can decide how time is spent, and that he gets to help people and educate them on how their heating and cooling systems work.
“I also like the troubleshooting part of it,” he said. “I can find out what the problem is that a person is having and try to fix it, problems that haven’t been fixed for a long time.”
He stated that he hopes he can provide excellent service and customer satisfaction, and gain a good presence in the community.
“I want to fill a gap in the area,” he said. “No job is too big or small. I’ve worked on small residential systems all the way to large BTU boilers.”
