Mike O’Hara

Owner

Owner of A+ Insulation Mike O'Hara Mike O’Hara started A+ Insulation in 2004 after realizing there was a major issue with under-insulated homes in the United States. He knew that adding insulation was the most cost-effective improvement homeowners could make to have a comfortable and energy efficient home and A+ Insulation could help. Mike admits being self-employed has some major pros and cons, but, he loves his job. The thing he enjoys most is having the ability to listen to the team and having the power to change whatever is necessary to make A+ Insulation the best company it can be.

Mike describes himself as a motivated learner and doer, and that attitude spills over into the company. They care, learn, grow, and operate in a state of constant improvement. Mike wants A+ to be a sustainable, diversified, insulation company that continues to grow and develop each year. A company where people like coming to work and being a part of a team that offers unparalleled customer service. This takes a great group of people working towards a common vision and that’s what they have at A+ Insulation. Mike truly believes that the people make the difference.

Mike grew up in California and lives with his two dogs – a nine-year-old golden retriever and a one-and-a-half- year-old goldendoodle. He wants to fill his entire life with experiences – learn from the bad ones and enjoy the good ones! He’d like to see new places, meet new people, and live life to the fullest.
