Company History

Intelligent Design Air Conditioning and Heating’s Owner, Andrew Dobbins, transitioned out of the Marine Corps in 2002 and shortly there after entered the world of heating and cooling. He quickly excelled in the field of estimation and system design as he worked for what was one of the largest companies in Tucson. At this company Andrew focused on the residential marketing, product expertise, and design aspects to a heating and cooling company.


After 4 years Andrew left that company and went on to another to further His education and experience. He studied heat load engineering, logistics, and duct design. At this company Andrew also learned the inner workings of the new construction custom home market, and how a large service company runs logistics to maintain quality and customer satisfaction. After one year the company downsized due to a downturn in the economy. Andrew was let go as the owner took over his roll for about a year until He was able to hire again.


Now being well versed in the industry in 2009 Andrew sought out to start His own company and partnered with the grandson of a family that had been in the industry for 3 generations.!The company had record breaking growth achieving a volume of over 1 million dollars in the first year and received awards from its manufactures. As the company grew Andrew furthered his education becoming BPI (Building Performance Institute) certified for both Building Analysis and AC/ Heat Pump. This certification at the time was held by only 3 others in the industry in Tucson. Today Andrew is one of the most certified and top sought after engineers of residential air conditioning and heating systems in Tucson.


Andrew is an EPA certified Technician. He has been to onsite training at multiple factories of the manufactures, and is certified for Indoor Air Quality by Both Lennox® and American Standard/Trane. In all the years and experience Andrew has never had a BBB complaint and has multiple service awards from Angie’s List.!


In 2011 after these 3 years of exponential growth the partnership ended. Andrew pushed on toward growth and excellence.


Today Intelligent Design has over 25 employees and we continue to grow and perform with excellence. In 2013 we purchased a new company property on 1 acre with 5 buildings on it and have since built an additional building for equipment staging and will soon be adding another for additional office personnel. Our general manager John Schamahorn has 27 years’ experience. He has managed one of the largest companies in the state of Arizona Tucson division(150 men) and has also owned his own company. All of our installers and technicians have over 10 years experience and the company is certified for all the TEP rebates. We work with homeowners, architects, and builders for commercial and residential replacement and new construction. Intelligent Design is growing at a exponential rate due to great quality and great customer service. We now have a wonderful team with high levels of integrity, knowledge, and skill.
