American Comfort Solutions was founded in 1963 in downtown Fuquay Varina. Our offices are still located just 2 blocks from our original location. We take pride not only in our work, but our community as well. We are members of the local civic Chamber of Commerce and make many donations to local civic organizations. We strive not only to be in our community, but to be part of it as well.
Jason Guy is as much of a Fuquay-Varina native as you can find. Having been born and raised in the town and surrounding area, he feels a genuine sense of responsibility to provide quality products and services to his community. Jason started kindergarten at Lincoln Heights and finished up graduating from Fuquay-Varina High School as part of the Class of 1994. Having spent most of his childhood living on Academy St. near the F-V Middle School, he has very fond memories of spending afternoons at Elliott’s Pharmacy drinking vanilla cokes with his friends after school, and playing basketball at the ‘Old Gym’ and other sports at the local parks, and just generally enjoying growing up in a great small town. Nowadays his focus is on being part of his growing community as a member of the local Chamber of Commerce and through other forms of community outreach, wanting to give back to the community that is so much a part of who he is. And of course, there is the issue of family pride in taking over as President of the family business in July of 2007. Jason’s dad, Hank Allred has always been a well respected member of his community and Jason knows he has some big shoes to fill.
H. C. "Hank" Allred, Jr.
Retired Former Owner/President
Hank was born and raised in Alamance Co. He has two sons. He served his country in the US Air Force before attending college. He was with Duke Power in Burlington for 15 years and Allison/Erwin Co. in Charlotte for 20 years. While Territory Manager with Allison/Erwin, Hank became friends with Earl Holleman, owner and founder of M & H Heating and A/C. He purchased 50% of M & H Htg. & A/C when Mr. Holleman retired in in Jan. 1988. In July 1995, he purchased the other 50%. After almost 20 years at the helm of M & H, Hank decided to retire (sort of, that is). He sold the company to his step-son, Jason Guy, who had worked with him for 5 years, and he continues to make himself available both as an advisor and salesman. Hank also keeps busy as a Gideon and helping wherever possible with his wife's ministry.

When her husband Hank purchased M & H Heating & A/C in 1988, Ellen started Leisure Concepts Pool & Spa which she operated until selling it in Nov. 1997 and coming to work for M & H. Hank retired in July 2007 when he sold the company to Jason Guy, one of Ellen's three sons.
