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.

If your home seems too warm, no matter how much your run your A/C, you might be be contributing to the problem. Here are a few sneaky but common ways people sabotage their cooling efforts.
Are you closing interior doors? In the winter, closing interior doors help keep in the heat. In the summer, however, you should keep interior doors open to increase airflow. This helps your cooling system to work more effectively.
Are you using your ceiling fans wrong? The direction of the blades determines how air is pulled through the fan. Typically you’ll want your fan to run counter-clockwise in the summer. Just stand under the fan to make sure you feel a breeze.
Do you use heat-producing appliances? During the heat of the day you should avoid using all heat-creating appliances. Dryers, dishwashers, and ovens are the biggest offenders. Use the dishwasher and dryer at night and skip the oven altogether..
The hotter your climate, the more important it is to avoid doing things that heat up your home. And remember, having your system professionally maintained can save you pain and money in the future.
