About Renaud Electric Heating & Cooling

We are licensed and bonded in both Washington and Oregon.
Renaud Electric was founded in January 1955 by A.T. Renaud. Two years after purchasing the assets of Pioneer Electric in 1962, Renaud Electric became incorporated. In March 1976, construction was completed of our new 12,000 square foot shop at 2300 Talley Way in Kelso. In April 1988, Thomas and Peggy Renaud became the second generation of Renaud family ownership. In 1999 George (Buck) Allen, our HVAC Division Manager, and his wife Marianne became partners in Renaud Electric’s Kelso operation. With the vision of expansion and demands of our services the Renaud Electric Corporation opened its second office, Renaud Heating and Cooling, in Ellensburg Washington in early 2005. The following year, the Renaud Electric Heating and Cooling Corporation purchased the assets of Valley Sheet Metal, a Trane Heating and Cooling provider in Ellensburg, forming Valley Heating and Cooling. In 2006 A.T. Renaud’s oldest grandson Larry Timmons, our Electrical Division Manager, and his wife Kim became Renaud Electric’s 3rd generation of family ownership. In October of 2009, Thomas Renaud retired from daily operations at our Kelso Headquarters, but he still remains available as a trusted consultant.
