As a young man starting out as an apprentice, Tony Brown found he had a deep love of and natural knack for plumbing and HVAC. He rose up through the ranks of the company he worked for quickly… but he found his services so in-demand he was increasingly called away nights and weekends from his young, growing family.

In 2007, Tony and his wife Sara decided they wanted their Friday night dates back and more time with their three young children. Feeling the calling, they started Brown Plumbing & Heating from their home office and garage.

The company grew quickly but larger national plumbing & HVAC operators were relentless in trying to talk Tony into working for them…

But Tony and Sara believed Ashland deserved its own world class firm and their discipline has been rewarded as over the past fourteen years, Sara’s office mastery and Tony’s field genius have turned Brown into a growing corporation of over 20 professionals supporting local businesses, organizations and home owners.

We're Just Getting Started...

Locally owned and raised, we take pride in making sure the homes, offices, schools, hospitals and commercial & industrial buildings in the community we live in have the best plumbing & HVAC systems possible. No job is too big or small, we’re here to serve.

Sara Brown

Sara Brown is the co-owner, co-founder and president of Brown Plumbing & HVAC. She’s also the wife of Tony Brown! Forming the company with Tony in 2007, she started with little background experience in running a corporation… so she rolled her sleeves up and learned the ins and outs of the industry to build the growing business you see today.
