HVAC Company Says It Will No Longer Serve Downtown Denver Customers: ‘It’s Not Worth It’: – CBS Denver

WHEAT RIDGE, Colorado (CBS4) – A Wheat Ridge-based heating and air conditioning company said it will no longer serve businesses in or around downtown Denver due to crime, drug use and danger to its field crews .

“It’s not really worth putting up with,” said Tony Cirbo, operations manager for AC Mechanical and Engineering. He said the company works in the Front Range with about 100 industrial and commercial customers.

But Cirbo said after hearing from field crews who were “very nervous” working in parts of downtown, the company made the decision to deny applications for work from downtown Denver. Cirbo said the business decision was also partly due to the fact that the company only had two customers in downtown Denver.

But he said his crews complained of finding needles, drug paraphernalia, feces and were concerned about the theft.

“You don’t know what’s going to happen,” Cirbo said.

In a recent email to a downtown client, Cirbo wrote, “We made the decision as a company not to do any downtown work almost two years ago. Technicians were tired of stepping over needles, human excrement, broken-in vans, etc.

He told CBS4 “You don’t know what’s going to happen” and he felt that downtown Denver thieves would steal “anything that’s not locked.”
