Meet Bob Schaldenbrand, Home Comfort Specialist
Home Comfort Specialist Bob Schaldenbrand is a longtime member of the Barineau Heating and Air Conditioning team. For more than 18 years, Bob has worked on the installation crew, earning his EPA, NATE, NADCA and PATS certifications as well as becoming Lead Safe certified.
Originally from Michigan, Bob relocated to the north Florida area with his family at the age of 5. His journey to Barineau Heating and Air Conditioning began in the ninth grade when he met Patrick Barineau while attending school in Tallahassee. Years later when Bob began looking for employment opportunities, Patrick introduced him to his father Larry.
“It’s hard to find somewhere that you enjoy coming to work and you feel like they treat you fairly,” Bob said. “I’m an honest guy, and I think my morals are in the right place. I believe their morals are in the right place as well, and that’s what makes it easy working for a company like this.”
Bob spent most of his career in installation, which gave him a great foundation for his recent move into sales as a home comfort specialist. While he is excited for the new challenge, he said he will miss the special interactions had with Barineau customers.
“Moving to sales is nice because it’s challenging. It’s something different,” Bob said. “But, working on installation was really enjoyable because you got to meet different people from all walks of life. When you spend a day in someone’s house, you are able to talk with them and get to know them.”
In his spare time, Bob enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter as well as fishing, boating and attending church with his family.
