To our Valued Customers and Colleagues:

From former owner Jeff Rucinski

To my Valued Customers and Colleagues:
In the year 2000, I took a leap of faith and started my own business in Weston, Best-1 Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. Through the years, we expanded the business to include an electrical division. At one point, my company employed16 people.

I have put my heart and soul into this business, and I am so grateful to all my customers, vendors, salespeople, and colleagues for everything you have done to help me succeed.

Best-1 is known as one of the most trustworthy and professional companies in the area and we all take pride in the quality of our work. Our reputation is second to none and I am very proud of that fact. I have some of the best employees in the business and I respect and value every one of them.

An opportunity to sell the business was presented to me, and I am ready to hand the keys over to someone else. The new owner of Best-1 is a young, talented member of the community who already owns a successful business and I feel 100 percent confident Best-1 will go on to thrive and be bigger and better than ever under his leadership. I know he will welcome the opportunity to say hello to you all and have you get to know him.

I will still be living in the Wausau area, and I’m looking forward to tackling some new projects in this next phase of life.

Again, I want to thank each and every one of you for the part you have played in helping me make Best-1 such a big success and a valued plumbing, heating, and electrical resource for the people of this community.

A Letter from new owner Damien Donathan

Hello! My name is Damien Donathan, I started my HVAC career in 2005. I specialized in healthcare maintenance from 2007-2013, and from there I went on to start my own heating/ cooling and refrigeration business mid2013. Affordable Refrigeration LLC

Originally from Michigan, I moved to the Wausau area in 2008, and immediately felt at home here. Affordable Refrigeration, LLC was born from a desire to serve the local community with humility, honesty and integrity.

When the opportunity arose for me to purchase Best-1 plumbing and heating Inc. I was ecstatic. I could not think of a better business to acquire and continue to grow. This is a great opportunity and an honor to be a part of.

Affordable Refrigeration LLC is excited to take on the Best-1 business and continue to provide the same quality customer care that Jeff has strived for and provided. With this business merger, Affordable Refrigeration LLC is also excited to be able to provide plumbing services.

With vast residential and commercial experience, we are ready to tackle any project – from new build installations, servicing old equipment and replacements. Thank you to all of the Best-1 employees and customers who are giving us the opportunity to work with them and serve together. To all of my current employees and customers I am also extremely thankful and excited to be able to serve you in an even greater capacity.

Thank you,
Damien Donathan

I spoke with Jeff about installing an humidifier on my furnace. Jeff did some research and recommended the Honeywell because he thought it was the best even though Honeywell was not the most expensive. Installation took just 90 minutes and the unit works perfectly. I noticed the difference immediately. First rate business.

What a wonderful company, my furnace went out on a night we were experiencing subzero temps. I called several companies and was given extremely high pricing due the urgency of the situation. I called Jeff and he not only gave me a prize on a Rheem furnace that was so much lower than any other bid, he and his guys were here first thing the next day to get my furnace.

I can’t say enough about the great service I received. Thank you!!!

I have nothing but great words for Best 1 Plumbing Heating & Electrical. When I have awoken and had problems with my well, I’ve called Jeff and he has always found the time to come and diagnose the issue and get it taken care of. I highly recommend Best 1.

Hi Jeff, I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful friendly service your company has given us over the years.

Your Electricians, Plumbers and Heating/Cooling Technicians are the best. We have had the best customer service given by your wonderful company and warm friendly Secretary, Stacey. She answers the phone like she was the owner, and gives her full attention to our call.

We are very pleased with the services we have received from Best One Plumbing. The name Best One is very appropriate.
