SAWIN’s Alert AC

SAWIN’s Alert AC

In 2012, Alert was purchased by Jeff Wellett whose desire was to carry on the legacy of providing great products and services to the Tampa metropolitan marketplace.

Alert Air Conditioning in Tampa, Florida has a long and interesting history in the Tampa area which includes their relationship with Service Automation. In 1946, Cliff English left the Yankee baseball club and started an appliance and heating company (The Alert) in Tampa with his brother in law, Carl Nelson. It grew over the years and in 1978 Wayne English and Bruce Nelson (the sons), along with Sandy Sanders bought the company.

In January of 1985 Kit Galgano came on as V.P. of service and one of his 1st priorities was to computerize the service department. After a year looking for the right system, Kit went to Houston Texas to visit Hallmark A/C, run by Buck St. Cyr to see their system. The system was called SAS, or the Service Automation System and it was running on Pick OS, which is similar to Unix or DOS. Alert purchased the SAS software and utilized it for over 25 years.

In April of 2012 Jeff Wellett and his mother Marion brought Alert A/C.  In June of 2012, based on the recommendation of Kit, Alert upgraded their legacy version of SAS to SAWIN. Luckily, they were up and running in one week because their old SAS system completely crashed a few weeks later.
