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.

Geothermal systems are one of the most misunderstood options on the market today. Many people aren’t even aware that these systems can provide both cooling and heating. To help clear up the confusion about geothermal, we thought we’d talk about what it is and why it is a great choice in many situations.
● Geothermal systems are more economical to operate.
● Geothermal systems are far quieter to operate than conventional systems.
● Geothermal is a safe, clean, and renewable way to heat and cool your home.
● Geothermal systems dehumidify as they cool, making your home more comfortable.
● Geothermal systems provide steady warmth instead of blasts of hot air, so they keep the indoor climate more evenly warmed.
You might also be surprised to know that geothermal systems are often more reliable than a more conventional system. While their name might imply that they are complicated, they actually have fewer moving parts, so they need less maintenance and are less likely to break down. This means more years of use with less work for the homeowner.
