S&L Air Conditioning and Heating Team

A company that smiles and makes you smile

From protecting your family in chilly winters to keeping cool in the soaring summer heat, turning your house into a home starts with perfecting your home’s temperature. At S & L Air Conditioning and Heating, we’re proud to be the ones you can count on, no matter the weather.

Our founder, Stephen Toward Sr, began his career four decades ago when he completed his cooling and heating certification in the United States Airforce. With a young family to support, he entered the corporate world at Sears and worked his way up to a management position. Despite his thriving career, his true passion lay in working with his hands and building long-standing relationships with his community.

Stephen was encouraged by his wife, Laura, to retire early from Sears in 2012 and start his own business specializing in air conditioning and heating in the Bowie, Maryland, area. Their son, Stephen Jr, joined the company six months later. Drawing on the initials of Stephen and Laura’sfirst names, they named the company S & L Air Conditioning and Heating

Be cool. Be warm. Be well

Our customers’ homes are their sanctuaries where they share special moments with their families, achieve their dreams, and create lifelong memories.

Nothing brings about discomfort as quickly as a broken air conditioner or furnace. Along with the immediate problem comes stress about repair costs, the reputability of the repair company, and anxiety about whether the company is one that can be trusted in their homes and around their families.

More than taking care of our customers’ mechanical problems, our goal is to alleviate the numerous stressors that inevitably come with it. When we arrive at our customers’ homes, the first thing they’ll see is our proud mascot on the side of our truck, followed by the friendly smiles on our team’s faces letting them know that their homes are in safe hands.

Uncomplicated and human
