Our Story


Founded in November 1990 by Jim Murphy and David McAdams, Team Air started as the Bryant equipment distributor in Nashville, Tennessee. Jay McDaniel joined the ownership group in the summer of 1991. Team Air expanded its footprint into East Tennessee, planting new branches in both Knoxville and Chattanooga. Quickly following those two initiatives the next expansion was to purchase a small competitor in Gallatin and increase our distribution presence in the Middle Tennessee market. The decade saw Team Air grow into the #1 market-share Bryant distributor in the Southeast, and also one of the top Bryant distributors nationally.

In 2001, a major product transition took place with the switch to selling York equipment. The subsequent next 10 years saw Team Air once again become the market-share leader as #1 in the Southeastern marketplace of those selling York. Team Air was also awarded the distribution rights to the Mitsubishi ductless equipment line in 2006. This high-quality ductless equipment quickly became our #2 selling product line throughout Middle and East Tennessee. We experienced additional expansion in 2008 with two new branches, one in Clarksville, Tennessee and the other in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

In 2011, the company went through another major product line transition as Team Air was awarded the American Standard brand. American Standard continues its rich history of being the #1 consumer-rated HVAC product in terms of quality. This most recent transition has produced rapid growth in both revenue and profits, and once again Team Air finds itself as the market-share leader in the Southeast of those selling American Standard.

Team Air is all about passionately “Distributing HVAC – Delivering Excellence.” We use our collective talents and teamwork leveraging technology and training to maximize success for all: our customers, our employees and our business partners.
