Daniel Kinnetz was born in Syracuse N.Y. and grew up in the northern suburb of Cicero. Attending Cicero-North Syracuse High school, he excelled at Math and Science. After high school, a family friend who owned an A/C and refrigeration company, hired him on as an installation helper. He worked his way up to a Service technician position, working on everything from oil and gas furnaces, a/c systems and walk in coolers. After several years in the field, he left the industry and started a business customizing cars, which he always had a passion for. For seven years he ran that business, until realizing that the Cold and Record Snow in N.Y. wasn’t his cup of tea. Daniel moved to Sarasota in 2003 and went to work for a local A/C company as a Maintenance technician. After several years in the field and numerous factory training classes he worked up to the position of senior service technician. Wanting to excel in all aspects of the industry, he then trained as a Sales technician, which led him to be the #1 Sales producer at a large Bradenton based A/C Company. With the expert knowledge he has gained and a proven track record in the field, he then studied for and passed the State of Florida Contractors exam (lic. # CAC1817009). Starting A/C Today in 2009 and now with 6 trucks on the road and 11 employees, he strives to better himself and his company every day.
