LaMorte Electric Heating and Cooling was started as an electrical contracting business by Brian LaMorte in April of 2010. He has been operating under this name as a small sole-proprietorship from April 2010 until the end of 2017. Since then the business has incorporated and is now owned by himself and his business partner, Sarah Schnabel, since January of 2018.
Who We Are
We are an environmentally conscious contractor and a local family-owned and operated business. We pride ourselves on our customer service. We provide safe and quality work in a way that gives our customers the small business experience with the large contractor expertise.
It is important for us to be a socially-conscious, ethical business. One way in which we do that is by being a living wage employer, another way is more focused on our specific skill sets as trades-people. We want to inform our customers on the most efficient and renewable ways to electrify their home.
We like to envision a new standard for home construction. A standard that would include solar panels, a car charger, and an air-source heat pump that would heat and cool your home. With the right combination of these three things, a standard home would be able to leave a very small if not a zero carbon footprint without sacrificing any of our modern luxuries.
Brian got his start as an electrician by apprenticing and working for Cornell University as one of their campus electricians. He left there to pursue a career as an entrepreneur and electrical contractor. Before this he earned his Bachelor's in Computer Information Systems from Towson University.
Sarah is our administrator and works as a field tech when needed. She is our resident NYSERDA expert and handles the paperwork associated with any financing options. Before beginning with LaMorte Electric Heating and Cooling she earned her Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Cornell University.
