R&B's History

Russell Klara, the owner and founder of R&B Climate Control Systems, had a passion to join the HVAC industry after watching his father work in the field for his entire life.  He joined the work force right out of high school and then moved moved to SC in 1993.  In 2008, Russell lost his Job in the HVAC new construction industry due to the 2008 Recession.  With 5 kids to support during one of the highest recorded rates of home foreclosures in the US, Russell studied to obtain trade certificate license & business license—it may not have been the ideal time to start a business, but he had built great relationships in the industry through his career.

 

This company was built on the work that Russell received from the foreclosures of the recession.  R&B was contracted to perform all inspections, repairs and replacements for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The company started as 1 man in a truck, to having 3 departments, over 20 employees, and 15 trucks!  Nowadays Russell’s soul passion is not just to grow a successful business, but to make a difference in his employees’ and their family’s lives—whether R&B is a stepping stone to get them where they are meant to be, or a lifelong career with the company.

Causes We Care About

Athletic Booster Club

5,000 waters were donated to both Fort Mill and Indian Land to support their Athletic Booster clubs. Waters are sold at the games for $2 each, generating about $10,000 in revenue for the boosters.  Having 5 children who grew up in the Fort Mill school district and now grandchildren at Indian Land schools, it was important to Russell and his family to give back. Being able to support our customers' children as well is a great feeling, as they have supported us throughout the years. 

Fort Mill Care Center

The Fort Mill Care Center provides assistance with food, utilities, and prescriptions to residents of Fort Mill and Tega Cay, SC. They are a volunteer run non-profit organization, and an organization we feel passionate about supporting each year with food drives & turkey donations for the holidays. Russell's family has a special connection to this organization, as they had assisted his family long ago during economic struggle—Russell and his family will always be grateful to them.
