Phil Sr. is the founder. He began his career as a welder for the US Navy aboard the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Air Craft Carrier. He was then transferred to the Brooklyn Navy yard as a ship fitter. After President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, the yard was closed. He worked in refrigeration at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, and as an engineer for Roosevelt College. While working those two jobs he also ran his own little company in the Bronx called Cool-a-rama. Then in 1970 he and his wife took their family on a vacation to Miami Florida. As they passed through Deerfield Beach to visit friends, they really loved the area. He was offered a job there. The Nisas liked the weather and possibilities it gave their young family. By 1973 Phil, Patricia and their three children moved to Stuart, where they started their own air conditioning business, NisAir. Two generations have proudly served as owners and active mangers of the business since 1986.
In 2012 Phil Sr. has partially retired but still is active whenever he is needed. You just can’t get the air conditioning out of that man!
Phil Jr. decided long ago to follow in his father’s footsteps and work in the family business, which he has done, since he was a young teenager. His determination to learn the HVAC field sparked him to get his own state license in 1986. He also has served as an advisor on the Martin County Mechanical Board. Phil Jr has been actively involved in education and mechanical advancements in the air conditioning trade, construction field and air quality matters
