Founded in 1946 as Ed Glassman Plumbing & Heating, owner Ed Glassman built the fledgling business into one of the area’s busiest mechanical contracting firms. After working for Ed since 1946, Joseph’s father, Adolph, and his partner, Charles Staab, purchased the business in 1972 and renamed it Glassman/Staab Inc.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Joe Glassman opened Glassman Climate Control in Russell, Kansas in 1980. In 1985 he purchased his father’s business, merged it into Glassman Climate Control, and moved the company from Russell to Hays. With the expanding scope of Glassman’s building and mechanical services, the name changed to Glassman Corporation in 1991.
In 2011, the company moved into a new 31,000 square-foot campus housing and administration building and a large production, fabrication, and inventory control facility. The facility is one-of-a-kind in Kansas.
Today, Glassman Corporation is a multi-million dollar company employing nearly 100 people, including pipefitters, plumbers, mechanical service technicians, estimators, sales engineers, sheet metal fabricators, and administrative professionals. Our size allows us to be competitive and deliver high-quality products and services to our customers.

Winter has been hitting parts of the country hard, so it’s easy to imagine that we’re due a few more cold snaps before we can switch off the heat. Help your HVAC system last until spring arrives by checking in on it. Here are some tips to get you started:
Inspect your outdoor unit
Outdoor units are exposed to brutal conditions, especially in areas with heavy winter precipitation. It’s a good idea to check on them to make sure it is free of ice, snow, and yard debris buildup that can restrict airflow.
Change your indoor filters
Filters aren’t just a summer thing, even though many people forget about them during the winter. The truth is that filters need to be changed regularly throughout the year, regardless of the temperature outside.
Listen to your system
Most people tend to tune out the sounds around their home but it’s a good idea to listen to your HVAC system from time to time. This is important because a change in how your system operates might show up as a new sound.
