History of Tempstar

Tempstar the leading brand produced by the International Comfort Products Corporation (ICP). ICP was founded in the early 1900’s, and has grown over the years mainly by acquiring smaller heating/cooling businesses. While this has proved a good tactic, they now operate under many different brand names. Before becoming a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation, they were known as Inter-City Products. Tempstar in particular was a brand created by them specifically as a response to consumers who wanted more options in their heating and cooling line up. ICP itself supplies commercial, industrial and residential buildings with all of their heating and cooling needs. They are the exclusive manufacturer for HVAC equipment for Sears & Roebuck.
