r Service to their community, the chamber and their customers is a huge part of why Nebo Comfort Systems has been named the 2016 Business of the Year by the Payson & Santaquin Area Chamber of Commerce. The award was presented to owners Robert and Lorene Moore during the chamber’s installation dinner in January.
The Moores started Nebo Comfort Systems four years ago in the garage of their Genola home. But it wasn’t long before it outgrew the garage and they moved to their new shop in Elk Ridge.
“We want our business to grow by word of mouth. Our happy customers are our best advertising,” Robert said. “Our customers know we are going to take care of them as if they are part of our family.”
Nebo Comfort Systems is really all about family for the Moores. With several of their children filling key roles in their company, working together is what keeps their focus on caring for their customers as if they were family.
Robert grew up in the HVAC industry in Payson, so when he started his own business he knew giving back to the community was going to be a big part of it. The Moores started their charitable program, Nebo Cares, to give back to the community that has given them so much. Nebo Cares has allowed them to raise money for charities, organizations and causes they care about such as the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, the Mervyn Sharp Bennion Central Utah Veterans Home in Payson, the United Way, the ALS Foundation and others.
Their employees’ favorite Nebo Cares program is going to C.S. Lewis Academy every month to read to the students and donate books for each student to take home.
“Reading to our kids is a highlight for us every month.” Lorene said. “Their excitement and enthusiasm is contagious. We always feel like we get more than we give.”
The Moores volunteer in the community in many other ways also. Lorene is serving this year as president of the Payson & Santaquin Area Chamber of Commerce and is involved with the Women in Business of South Utah County, Key for Women and other groups working to support and promote businesses in the community. Robert is part of the Payson Kiwanis Club.
“Family is central to our business,” Lorene added. “Serving our community family is an extension of that. We are so grateful that Nebo Comfort Systems and Nebo Cares have made it possible for us to do that.”
