About Us

Our Story

Supporting your home and business since 1952

William McKean incorporated McKean Plumbing and Heating in 1952. Charles Hobbs purchased the firm in 1967, at which time the company had 8 employees, and primarily did service and repair work. Marc Hobbs, who began his career at McKean at the age of 13, purchased the company in 1991.

Marc, along with his wife Sonja, has continued to build on past success expanding operations while maintaining the care and attention to our customers and employees.

Our family of employees has grown to nearly 40, and each and every one is dedicated to providing friendly service and quality products.

Our retail store is considered by many to be “The Source” for plumbing, heating and A/C parts, with customers visiting us from all over the region. Our experienced staff ensure you have the correct parts for your D-I-Y project.

We are members of various civic organizations, sponsor numerous youth sports, and our “family” has donated countless hours of work for the City Mission, PONY League Baseball, TWIST Softball, and Washington Community Theatre to mention a few.

At McKean Plumbing and Heating, we look forward to continuing our relationship with the people and organizations in our area. Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, or Electrical?Answer: McKean!

    5 star review  My wife and I just moved back to this area after being gone for many, many years. We purchased an old home, which has many plumbing issues, plus we want to make one of the rooms on the main floor the laundry area. I called McKean to have them come and get advice on things that need addressed. I got a quick response and a date was set to come look at the things that I had on my request. After the visit to our home, looking over our situation, having things explained and talked about, we received a timely response in a detailed email as to the cost. The cost seems very fair, so we accepted the price and we are on McKean's schedule for this work to be done. I will be glad to do another comment when the work has been completed.

    5 star review  They're super-professional, efficient and respectful of my time, and they keep the business in the family, which I love. And LOCAL. Love that, too. They are chock full of knowledge and are very candid in their estimates and work required to get the job done. I couldn't be more pleased with the install they did for my gas stove. Any time I have a plumbing issue, I call ONE number and they're it. And those CROCS, y'all. A+ service, highest possible recommendation.
