About heat transfer equipment co.


As of June 2017, Heat Transfer Equipment Company moved to 175 Harvard Avenue, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019. We are just blocks from Princeton's Harbor and the Maverick's surf spot. 


Htec is a new subdivision of Heat Transfer Equipment Company. We now have the space and capability to build custom Skid Packages right here in Half Moon Bay. No Skid leaves our shop until it is hydrotested and meets our standards. We are also now a UL508A Certified Panel Shop.


We take pride in the quality of all of our equipment, especially our pumps built here in-shop. In our pump shop, we have a full new paint booth and a lathe. All our pumps are coated with a Marine Grade Enamel to withstand the West Coast climate; this allows the pump to hold amazing quality years after installation (Indoors or Outdoors). We stock hundreds of different TACO pumps and have highly competitive lead times. 


To ensure our skid packages and other custom builds make it safely to our customers in the immediate Bay Area, we have an HTE Van and Flatbed to deliver.


Need assistance with your system? We have staff with over 50 years of experience happy to help.  We are committed to serving our industry with integrity, efficiency, and fairness. We provide accurate and practical responses to questions relating to design, application, and field work 


We have factory certified staff that will come out to start-up the equipment we sold at local job sites.

founder of heat transfer equipment co.

Andrew G. Chiari

1937 - 2012

Andy founded Heat transfer Equipment Company in 1967. He started off in a small office on Geary Street in San Francisco. As business grew, he relocated to 20 Linden Avenue in South San Francisco. H.T.E. remained at this location for over 40 years. Andy kept his company alive and well with his beliefs in creating strong business relationships, working hard, and caring for his employees. After his sudden passing in 2012, the company was acquired by his business partner, Lance Amato. Lance worked with Andy for around 25 years and strives to continue with Andy's pride, care, and work ethics for Heat Transfer Equipment Company. Lance has since managed to triple the size of the company, and relocate the office twice to accommodate for the company's growth. We are proud to announce that 2017 is the company's 50th year in the HVAC Industry.
