Matthew and Sarah Axsom started their cooling and heating company,“AxsomAir”, in the Spring of 1997 in a small shop on the west side of Natchitoches. With seven sons at that point in time, there was never a shortage of eager helpers for installing and servicing air conditioning systems and Matthew often wryly claimed that AxsomAir would always be the original “duct dynasty” in Louisiana. According to the couple, the family business setting provided the perfect opportunity to teach timeless lessons of integrity and customer service which continue to be the guiding principles of the company to this day.
Fast approaching their 20th anniversary, the company has grown to 10 trucks and 18 employees and they are pleased to announce the opening of their new plumbing service division with the hire of master plumber Josh Oden from Shreveport. “Many customers have asked us when we would start a plumbing service,” said co-owner and GM Matthew Axsom. “It has always been the matter of finding the experienced master plumber who embraces our culture and Josh Oden who has been a family friend for over 10 years is an exact fit.” Oden ran his own business in Shreveport for 11 years and is bringing 25 years of experience to the AxsomAir team.
In addition to Oden starting up the new plumbing division for AxsomAir, the company is also adding duct cleaning and attic insulation to its offering of services. With the purchase of a state-of-the-art duct cleaning machine, excessive dust and allergens can be removed from your air conditioning duct work which can significantly improve the indoor air quality. AxsomAir techicians can now also blow in any thickness of new insulation to your attic, increasing the “R Value” ,which is known to reduce the power consumption of your air conditioner while significantly lowering your electric utility bill.
AxsomAir primarily serves Natchitoches Parish but is expanding to Rapides, Grant and Sabine Parishes as they are the sole authorized A/C installation company for Lowe’s in Alexandria and Pineville.
