The History of NorthStar Comfort Services
Founded in 1947 by Dan & Lola Boone, NorthStar Comfort Services, Inc. began meeting the insulation needs of a booming housing industry under the name Wichita Insulation and Aluminum Company. At the time, insulation was a relatively new technology and energy efficiency was more of an abstract than a reality. In 1981, Jim Boone, Dan & Lola’s son who had become president of the company, started a separate window tinting company. Originally called The Tint Shop, the name was later changed to Window Works. This new company also had the goal of creating more comfortable and efficient living environments. These shared values led to the companies merging under the NorthStar banner signifying an integrated approach from our company, leading to integrated solutions for you.
Today, NorthStar stands out from its competition, not only in products & services but also in its level of community and industry involvement. Jim Boone has been recognized as a Jack Robertson Volunteer of the Year in 2003 for his dedication to Habitat for Humanity and has served on the local branch’s Board of Directors. Both Jim and his son and current president, Jeff Boone, have also served on the Wichita Area Builders Association Board of Directors and other national groups, with both having stints as President of the Blow-in-Blanket Contractors Association (BIBCA, which is now HPIP).
