The Jon Wayne Heating & Air Conditioning headquarters in east San Antonio on Highway 87 is an amazing operation, and a tour with owner and founder Don Rackler is an eye-opening and educational experience. Rackler is passionate about consumer education, customer service and energy efficiency, which is why he’s a regular on local news programs educating viewers about how to save money and conserve energy.
It turns out that Rackler is also passionate about environmental stewardship, so much so that he recently added a new recycling facility to his headquarters. It’s a building where every old air conditioning and heating unit and every water heater that his team replaces is painstakingly disassembled and every recyclable part (and liquid) is separated and recycled. It’s extra work, and there’s no guarantee that any revenue produced will cover the extra expense, but Rackler doesn’t give it a second thought. “Well, it’s the right thing to do,” he says with a shrug, when asked why he goes to the trouble. It’s an extra effort worth noting to Natural Awakenings readers.
