About Us

Matthew Robert Simpson "OUR FOUNDER"

HISTORY: Our history began in 1958 when Central Fuel Oil Company and Central Heating & Air conditioning began in St. Petersburg Florida. Our late founder Matthew Simpson was a Standard Oil Distributor selling fuel related heating products and was a master distributor for Perfection Heating equipment. Back in the 1950s our bulk oil plant was located at 4716 Freemont Terrace South and Store at 1040 16th Street South in St. Petersburg.

As years went by we turned our attention to the ever increasing technology of Air conditioning, which really became a factor in the early sixty's. Our founder was a contractor in Pinellas County and Hillsborough. In 1966 the Oil Company division was sold to Risser Oil, a Texaco distributor. In 1979 the business reins were turned over to the founder's son David Simpson and has remained a family operated business to this day.

Our founder always believed a business had to re-invent itself and built upon to stay relevant in an ever changing world. " A business can never stand still, It must grow or diminish " he would say. With that thought in mind, we gravitated to a business of Wholesale and Retail Heating & Air conditioning supplies for the contractor as well as the homeowner. Our background and history made it the logical choice and has flourished since. Our thanks go out to the many customers that have helped us achieve that goal. We are now entering our 52nd Year in business and could have never done it without you.

The latest expansion is the addition of VALUEAC website. This website combines the best of our expertise with direct shipment of quality products. Matthew Simpson, our founder, would love this newest way to serve customers!
