Company History

Total Environmental Management Inc. was co-founded in June 1985 by Curtis Scheetz as an emergency/temporary air conditioning company serving the Southern California area. Its founders worked in the HVAC equipment industry and saw a need for an outside rental equipment company to carry a broad variety of brands for retrofit jobs as well as emergency situations. TEM provides important value by supporting large construction or retrofit projects with a rental supply of cooling and heating equipment, parts, and solutions.

The company has continued to grow by acquiring substantial inventory of HVAC equipment and building strong partnerships with mechanical contractors and facility managers throughout Southern California and in other western states. Originally, the company was located in Artesia and moved in 2010 to its current facility in Anaheim. Today, TEM houses the largest inventory of any HVAC rental company on the West Coast.  When TEM moved to Anaheim they greatly expanded their in-house equipment to support a wide range of applications. We continue to maintain our own welding department and are able to design turn-key solutions and installations that are customized to situations in a variety of industries.

After 30 years of problem-solving through various challenges such as the 1994 earthquake, or amazing benchmarks like the cooling of the 2004 Winter Olympic torch, the company’s main focus remains it’s dedication to customer service. Today, we have a staff of 45 that will do everything possible to fulfill a customer need through obtaining or even building the necessary resources.  By maintaining a well-trained and experienced staff, TEM creates efficiencies of implementation through a stronger knowledge of the equipment and its’ engineering process.

TEM has completed work throughout Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, and Mexico.
