Lead Installer & Service Repair Technician
Leo Zepeda, lead installer and service repair technician for Design Air, Inc., a local family owned and operated Heating and Air Conditioning Company in the Inland Empire.
For four years, Leo worked with a masonry company in Orange County, with long hours, not enough pay and not to mention the commute from Corona to Orange County every day was taking a toll on him. His long time best friend Megan, introduced him to Design Air, and in 2012, he began working as an installation and service technician in training. After one year and thousands of service calls and installations, he was promoted and given his own work van and able to work unsupervised.
While working in the trade and taking classes for his position, he now holds his EPA license, R-410a refrigerant License, is certified in residential and commercial HVAC service and installation, has his certificate in combustion safety, is NATE certified, GUTS certified and BPI certified. With all of his training, certificates, attention to detail and amazing customer service, he was able to rise to lead installer while still performing service and repair for both residential and commercial properties.
Leo is an avid golfer, video game player and comic book enthusiast. He spends his free time reading, watching movies and spending time with his family.
Leo hopes to grow with the company and maintain his high position for years to come. He wants to continue to grow and learn new HVAC applications and extend his knowledge in the industry and to one day bring plumbing applications to the company and further extend its growth and service operations.
