Southeast Technical is honored to have Scott Freier as the recipient of the 2010 Outstanding Alumni Award.
Freier built his heating and ventilating business, Freier’s Electric and Heating, from the ground up (no pun intended) in Ellsworth, a community near where he grew up on the family farm in Bay City. He graduated from the technical college in 1991 with an education in HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Cooling) and understood the importance of exploring efficient energy uses early in his career. Alternative heating concepts that employed sustainable resources was of high interest to Freier and offering those services to a niche in the market became the hallmark of his operation.
In pursuit of building things “better,” he combined his natural interests as a problem solver with the skills he learned on the Red Wing campus. His interest in exploring geothermal heating and cooling concepts later led to a collaboration with a well-known international manufacturer, the WaterFurnace company, a leading international manufacturer of heat pump systems for geothermal temperature controls. No challenge was too big and educating home and business owners on the benefits of using what nature gives, while minimizing the carbon footprint with renewable resources has become his mantra.
