History of Doug’s & New Website

We’ve been providing the Quad Cities commercial and residential HVAC services in both Iowa and Illinois for over 60 years. In the 1950’s, our founder, Doug Smith, established his aptly named Moline heating and cooling business, Doug’s Heating & Air Conditioning. Doug led a successful business and upon his retirement over 30 years later, he bequeathed the company to his right-hand man, Matt Hines, in 1985. Today Doug’s Heating and Air Conditioning services residential and commercial needs, not only in the Quad Cities, but in Clinton, Muscatine, Eldridge, LeClaire, Milan, Coal Valley, DeWitt and all points in between!

Doug’s has grown so much over the last 60 years and it is a privilege to call the Quad Cities region home. In the early 90’s, we expanded from Silvis to a building located on Blackhawk Road. Shortly after, we moved into yet another, larger, building located on 15th Street in Moline. Then a few years later, Doug’s expanded to a 9,000 square foot building on River Drive.  The most recent move is a 27,000 square foot facility located at 4307 49th Avenue in Moline. This most recent move tripled our space and gave us room to house all of the services and products we’ve added over the years.

Now that we’ve entered a new year, we thought it would be a perfect time to unveil some additional changes: We are very proud and excited to announce the launch of our brand-new website! A lot of planning and effort went into its creation and we are very pleased with the result. Feel free to navigate around, see what’s new, and let us know what you think! We love working in the Quad Cities and can’t wait to hit 100 years of business here!
