The History Of LHT Cooling

I’m Joe Cornett, the owner of LHT Cooling and Heating in Myrtle Beach. The HVACR industry has been a lifelong profession for me.

My father was a steamfitter in Washington D.C., and owned a plumbing and HVAC company. I worked by my father’s side from the time I was a little boy and throughout my teenage years. During this time I learned the fundamentals of the industry, as well as the importance of honesty and having a strong work ethic.

During high school, I joined the vocational HVAC program, the Center of Applied Technology. After graduation, I went to Towson University in Towson, Maryland where I earned a degree in Business Management. After college, I enrolled in the local community college and earned an HVACR certificate. I also earned my NATE certification at this time. Both during and after graduating college, I worked for several HVACR companies in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area. From each job that I had, I learned something new and worthwhile that I knew would some day help me achieve my dream of owning and operating my own company.

In 2003 I moved to Myrtle Beach and by 2004 I started my own business, Cornett Cooling and Heating Inc. In 2006, I purchased LHT Mechanical Inc. from Ray and Michelle Lyons, who had been in business for over 20 years. I have worked very hard the past several years and now my business has evolved into LHT Cooling, Heating & Refrigeration Inc.

Our new shop is underway, hoping to be completed by the Spring of 2023.  We will be on Highway 90 at the back end of Water Tower Road near Barefoot Resort!
