Robert “Bob” G. Thomas, started Central Heating Company of Paducah in 1947. He used the “Iron Fireman” coal furnaces for this area to supply homes and businesses with their heating needs. He was also one of the first to supply this area with air conditioning. Mr. Thomas chose to promote the Coleman and Lennox air conditioning brands.  After 30 successful years of serving the people of Paducah, he turned the business over to his son-in-law, Robert Lynn.


Robert E. Lynn joined his father-in-law in 1970. At that time, Robert installed the first 97% Lennox Gas Furnace and the first 2- staged 16-seer air conditioning unit, which is still in operation today.  Robert chose to be the exclusive “Lennox” dealer due to its reputation for being a leader in the industry. The Lennox brand provides superior technology and the highest efficiency ratings within the HVAC industry. Robert loved Paducah and helping his community with their heating and cooling needs.


Robert Thomas “Tommy” Lynn, is proud to be the President of the oldest HVAC company in Western Kentucky. In 1988, Tommy became the third generation family member to represent Central Heating and Air Conditioning. Tommy believes it is a privilege to honor a 70 year tradition of providing superior HVAC products and service to the Paducah area. Tommy enjoyed representing the AGC (Association of General Contractors) as President in 2006, and continues to work with other contractors to provide growth in Western Kentucky.
