About Us

Three generations of serving the heating & cooling needs of the lakeshore



Smokey Barbier Heating, Inc., was founded by Marcellin (Smokey) Barbier Sr. and his wife Agnes in May of 1956. The business operated out of the home garage until 1979 when the current building was erected. The building was enlarged over the years to facilitate our changing needs.





Marcellin (Smokey) Barbier, Jr. began working for his father in 1958 and purchased the business along with his wife Phyllis, in 1970. They owned and operated the business until 2002.



The tradition continues...

In May of 2002, Connie Barbier (Smokey's daughter/ granddaughter) and Casey Czekala purchased the business. Together they carried on the tradition of providing state-of-the-art HVAC products for both residential and commercial needs, along with superior customer service that has been the benchmark of Smokey Barbier Heating, Inc.

Smokey Barbier Heating, Inc. is fortunate to have been retained in the Barbier family for three generations.



In January of 2016, Connie Barbier became the sole owner of Smokey Barbier Heating, Inc., when Casey Czekala retired. Casey still remains a valued employee, using his expertise in estimating and project coordination. Connie has worked in the HVAC industry for nearly 30 years and is proud to keep the family tradition going and growing.
