After working for another contractor, Gary Nester decided to start his own HVAC company in 1980 centered on quality and honesty.

Through years of hard work he built a strong and honorable reputation. He established a loyal customer base by serving the residents of St. Clairsville, Bellaire, Shadyside, Bridgeport, Martins Ferry, Maynard, and New Athens.


In providing lasting care for his customers, Gary trained and equipped Brian Darrah for many years before retiring and entrusting Jug Run’s legacy to him.

We have stood the test of time, out performed our competitors, and  will continue to be the Valley’s leader in excellent HVAC services and competitive pricing as we meet and exceed our

customer's expectations.

Our Commitment to Integrity


Our promise to you, the customer...

  • We won’t sell you something you do not need.
  • We are repairmen first, and retaining customers is more important than making a  profit.
  • We believe in old-fashioned business practices , where our word is our bond and a hand shake secures the deal.
  • If we cannot repair something,then we will suggest the best option for replacement, always being mindful of your budget and individual needs.


Trustworthy, honest, and a true craftsman - Brian takes pride in his work and the customer loyalty he’s earned over the years.  Having been trained in every aspect of HVAC, Brian is a skilled trouble-shooter and knowledgeable consultant for new construction and remodeling.
