King Heating, Cooling & Plumbing receives 2017 BBB Torch Award

King Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is a proud recipient of the 2017 BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, awarded by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Chicago & Northern Illinois.

Selected from hundreds of nominees, King is one of six Chicago businesses to receive this honor. King is the only HVAC or plumbing business selected for the award.


The annual Torch Award is given only to businesses who excel in ethical performance and business excellence in multiple areas, as determined by an independent panel of judges.

“The Torch Award is the premier award the BBB can present to a company,” says Steve J. Bernas, President & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “Torch Award winners demonstrate the highest ethical standards of trust and behavior toward customers, business partners, shareholders, employees, and the communities in which they do business.”

The Better Business Bureau of Chicago & Northern Illinois boasts a robust membership. In North America, there are more than 5.3 million businesses listed by the BBB, which maintains ratings and helps establish consumer trust in local goods and services.


This new honor is far from the first for the team at King. Here are other awards King has received recently:

  • King has been awarded the prestigious Carrier Presidents Award six times. This award is the highest honor that can be given to a Carrier dealer, and recognizes service excellence, customer satisfaction, and more.
  • King has been named “Best Of Chicago’s Southland” by The Chicago Tribune for seven consecutive years. This is an award voted on by people right here in Chicagoland.
  • King has also been awarded an Angie’s List Super Service Award for customer satisfaction.
