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.

Summer might be full of fun, but it is also full of higher utility bills. If running the A/C has got you worried about your wallet, we can help. These proactive steps can help you stay cool for less, all summer long.
Invest in heavy curtains – Heavy curtains, especially on your east and west windows, can block out more light and heat. Blackout curtains do a great job and can be bought at nearly any department store.
Call your utility company – Many utility companies have savings plans based on time of day and periods of peak usage. If so, enroll and limit the use of electricity during peak times, especially of large energy appliances like water heaters, dryers, and ovens.
Use fans liberally – Moving air makes a home more comfortable, even at higher temperatures. By having fans throughout your house, you’ll be able to set your thermostat higher without sacrificing comfort.
Install digital thermostat – A modern thermostat can help you save by letting you keep the house cooler while you’re home, but use less energy while you’re away. Some can even be controlled by an app, giving you increased flexibility.
