It’s our pleasure to serve you. We think we’re a unique and service-minded company, providing heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical and refrigeration services to residential and small commercial customers for 20 years. We’ve been dedicated to serving our community with skill and integrity since 1995, as Groff’s Heating, when Jason Denlinger opened our first office with his original founding partners, DeVon Groff and Laverne Hess in 1995. Since then we have cultivated a dedicated team of technicians, specializing in heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, plumbing and electrical work.
WE ARE HERE TO SERVE YOU THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. WE BELIEVE THIS IS ULTIMATELY BEST FOR OUR CUSTOMERS, OUR BUSINESS AND OUR COMMUNITY.
Jason and Pamela Denlinger, the company’s owners, have dedicated this business to their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. They desire Solaire Home Comfort to reflect the character, kindness and excellence of God, to glorify and serve Him.

Solaire Home Comfort has a unique angle on energy efficiency, because we know how to reduce our customers’ needs for energy, period. Whatever we recommend, we are not interested in making the biggest sale possible. Our goal is to solve people’s energy problems as efficiently as possible.

We believe this is ultimately best for our customers, our business and our community.
DeVon Groff had the original vision for the company. DeVon was from Canton, PA but lived in Lancaster, where he started a heating and plumbing company. He named his company “Groff’s Heating, Plumbing & Air Conditioning.” DeVon’s father, Marvin Groff, was a dairy farmer and plumbing and heating contractor for many years in the Canton community. In 1995, DeVon decided to start a separate company in Bradford County named, “Groff’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.” DeVon started this company to be supportive of his Dad’s business, but Marvin found he just preferred working on his own. DeVon invited two partners to join him: Laverne Hess, a bright and capable technician from Lancaster, and Jason Denlinger, a former pastor and experienced salesman from Canton. The company outgrew a small office in Marvin’s farmhouse, and moved close by to an old dairy barn in Grover, PA. The milkhouse was renovated into offices, and the barn into a parts warehouse. The company is still in this location today. “Groff’s Heating” as the company was known, attracted a solid crew of promising young technicians. Laverne was the technical lead man for the company until his unexpected passing in 2007 of a fatal heart attack. Seven years later DeVon decided to focus his efforts solely on the Lancaster business, and sold his share of the Canton business to his remaining partner, Jason Denlinger. The company was renamed “Solaire Home Comfort” and works in close partnership with “Solaire Energy”, an energy efficiency and solar company managed by Jason’s wife, Pamela Denlinger. The company is in a unique position of blending a long, successful history in the community with a new and fresh approach to the business.
