Jonathan grew up primarily in Orrington, Maine and attended Hampden Academy, graduating there in 1988. After attending Maine Maritime Academy, he married Andrea Eaton from Deer Isle; they settled in Bucksport and they went on to raise three children.

Along the way, Jonathan became employed at ZF Lemforder in Brewer, Maine. Lemforder ultimately sent him to school to become an electrician, where he earned an Associate in Applied Science Deegree in Electrical Power Technology at Eastern Maine Technical College (now Eastern Maine Community College).

Jonathan worked at the company for 12,000 hours under a Master Electrician over nine years, the first requirement to becoming a Master Electrician. When ZF Lemforder closed, he returned to school and become licensed as a Master Electrician July 2011.

But Jonathan had a vision for a small business that would be more than just electrical work, and he continued in school. He's working to become certified in heating and cooling as well--thus the name of the business, Hot & Cold Electric.

Electrical. As a Master Electrician, Jonathan can do anything electrical: installations, upgrades, services, and improvements, doing anything from putting up a light fixture to wiring a three-phase motor.

Cooling. Jonathan is certified by the EPA as a Universal Refrigeration Technician. He can work on some commercial refrigeration devices, air conditioners, and ice machines, and is certified to do refrigeration installations.

Heating. Jonathan will be licensed to work with gas appliances and is also currently certified as an installer of Fujitsu mini-split heat pumps. By May 2013, he will have his gas and oil boiler apprentice license. He'll need to work under a master boiler technician for six months to be fully licensed, but then will be able to do furnace cleanings, installations, gas conversions, and water heaters.

By the end of 2013, Jonathan's plan is to be able to do everything electrical, heating, and cooling on his own. This is part of his vision to provide a one-stop, full-service business. In many cases, a homeowner would have to hire three different people to do all the wiring, heating, and cooling in a house; with Hot & Cold Electric, Jonathan will be able to do it all. Not only will this save customers money, but provide a complete service that doesn't involve multiple companies and potentially confusing communications. Jonathan will deal directly with the homeowner or contractor, and get it all done.
