                          INFORMATION CONCERNING PROXY
 
     The enclosed proxy is solicited on behalf of the Company's Board of
Directors. The giving of a proxy does not preclude the right to vote in person
should any shareholder giving the proxy so desire. Shareholders have an
unconditional right to revoke their proxy at any time prior to the exercise
thereof, either in person at the Annual Meeting or by filing with the Company's
Secretary at the Company's headquarters a written revocation or duly executed
proxy bearing a later date; however, no such revocation will be effective until
written notice of the revocation is received by the Company at or prior to the
Annual Meeting.
 
     The cost of preparing, assembling and mailing this Proxy Statement, the
Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders and the enclosed proxy is to be borne
by the Company. In addition to the use of mail, employees of the Company may
solicit proxies personally and by telephone and telegraph. They will receive no
compensation therefor in addition to their regular salaries. The Company may
request banks, brokers and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries to forward
copies of the proxy material to their principals and to request authority for
the execution of proxies. The Company may reimburse such persons for their
expenses in so doing.

                            PURPOSES OF THE MEETING
 
     At the Annual Meeting, the Company's shareholders will consider and vote
upon the following matters:
 
     (1) To elect three members to the Company's Board of Directors to hold
office until the 1998 Annual Meeting of Shareholders or until their successors
are duly elected and qualified, one of whom will be elected by the holders of
Common Stock and two of whom will be elected by the holders of Class B Common
Stock;
 
     (2) To consider and act upon a proposal to approve an amendment to the
Company's Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the number
of authorized shares of Common Stock, par value of $.50 per share, to
40,000,000;
 
     (3) To ratify the reappointment of Arthur Andersen LLP as the Company's
independent certified public accountants for the year ended December 31, 1995;
and
 
     (4) To transact such other business as may properly come before the Annual
Meeting and any adjournments or postponements thereof.
 
     Unless contrary instructions are indicated on the enclosed proxy, all
shares represented by valid proxies received pursuant to this solicitation (and
which have not been revoked in accordance with the procedures set forth above)
will be voted (a) for the election of the respective nominees for director named
below to be elected by the holders of Common Stock and by the holders of Class B
Common Stock (see 'Outstanding Voting Securities and Voting Rights'), and (b) in
favor of all other proposals described in the Notice of Annual Meeting. In the
event a shareholder specifies a different choice by means of the enclosed proxy,
such shares will be voted in accordance with the specification so made.

                OUTSTANDING VOTING SECURITIES AND VOTING RIGHTS
 
     The Board of Directors has set the close of business on April 17, 1995, as
the record date (the 'Record Date') for determining shareholders of the Company
entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting. As of the Record Date,
there were 3,107,762 shares of Common Stock and 994,835 shares of Class B Common
Stock issued and outstanding, all of which are entitled to be voted at the
Annual Meeting. Holders of Common Stock are entitled to one vote per share on
each matter that is submitted to shareholders for approval, and vote as a
separate class to elect 25 percent of the directors of the Company (rounded up
to the next whole number), which presently equates to three directors. Holders
of Class B Common Stock are entitled to ten votes per share on each matter that
is submitted to shareholders for approval and vote as a separate class to elect
75 percent of the directors (rounded down to the next whole number), which
presently equates to six directors. See 'Election of Directors.'
 
     The attendance, in person or by proxy, of the holders of Common Stock and
Class B Common Stock representing a majority of the combined voting power of the
outstanding shares of such stock entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting is
necessary to constitute a quorum. For purposes of electing directors at the

                                       2

<PAGE>
Annual Meeting, the nominees receiving the greatest number of votes of Common
Stock and Class B Common Stock, voting as separate classes, shall be elected as
directors. The affirmative vote of (i) a majority of votes of Common Stock
present, in person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting and voting together as a
single class, and (ii) a majority of votes of Class B Common Stock present, in
person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting and voting together as a single class,
is required for the approval of the proposal to amend the Company's Amended and
Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares
of Common Stock to 40,000,000. The affirmative vote of a majority of votes of
Common Stock and Class B Common Stock present, in person or by proxy at the
Annual Meeting and voting together as a single class, is required for the
approval of (i) the proposal to ratify the reappointment of Arthur Andersen LLP
as the Company's independent certified public accountants for the year ended
December 31, 1995; and (ii) any other matter that may be submitted to a vote of
the Company's shareholders.
 
     As of the Record Date, the directors and executive officers of the Company
and certain entities affiliated with such persons beneficially owned (i) Common
Stock representing approximately 17% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock,
(ii) Class B Common Stock representing approximately 53% of the outstanding
shares of Class B Common Stock and (iii) approximately 44% of the aggregate
combined votes of Common Stock and Class B Common Stock entitled to be cast at
the Annual Meeting. Such persons and entities have informed the Company that
they intend to vote all of their shares of Common Stock and Class B Common Stock
in favor of all proposals set forth in the Proxy Statement.
 
     Prior to the Annual Meeting, the Company will select one or more inspectors
of election for the meeting. Such inspector(s) shall determine the number of
shares of Common Stock and Class B Common Stock represented at the meeting, the
existence of a quorum and the validity and effect of proxies, and shall receive,
count and tabulate ballots and votes and determine the results thereof.
Abstentions will be considered as shares present and entitled to vote at the
Annual Meeting and will be counted as votes cast at the Annual Meeting, but will
not be counted as votes cast for or against any given matter.
 
     A broker or nominee holding shares registered in its name, or in the name
of its nominee, which are beneficially owned by another person and for which it
has not received instructions as to voting from the beneficial owner, may have
discretion to vote the beneficial owner's shares with respect to the election of
directors and other matters addressed at the Annual Meeting. Any such shares
which are not represented at the Annual Meeting either in person or by proxy
will not be considered to have cast votes on any matters addressed at the Annual
Meeting.

                             ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
NOMINEES
 
     The Company's Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws
provide that the Board of Directors shall consist of not less than three nor
more than nine members, and shall be divided, as nearly as possible, into three
equal divisions to serve in staggered terms of office of three years. Each
director elected at the Annual Meeting will serve for a term expiring at the
1998 Annual Meeting of Shareholders or until his successor has been duly elected
and qualified.
 
     One director is to be elected at the Annual Meeting by the holders of
Common Stock, voting separately as a class. Mr. James S. Grien has been
nominated as the director to be elected by the holders of Common Stock and
proxies will be voted for Mr. Grien absent contrary instructions. Mr. Grien has
served as a Director of the Company since 1994.
 
     Two directors are to be elected at the Annual Meeting by the holders of
Class B Common Stock voting separately as a class. Messrs. Fleeman and Moss, who
have served as directors of the Company since 1977 and 1992, respectively, have
been nominated as the directors to be elected by the holders of Class B Common
Stock and proxies will be voted for Messrs. Fleeman and Moss absent contrary
instructions.
 
     The Board of Directors has no reason to believe that any nominee will
refuse to act or be unable to accept election; however, in the event that a
nominee for a directorship is unable to accept election or if any other
unforeseen contingencies should arise, it is intended that proxies will be voted
for the remaining nominees, if any, and for such other person as may be
designated by the Board of Directors, unless it is directed by a proxy to do
otherwise.

COMPLIANCE WITH SECTION 16(A) OF THE SECURITIES EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934
 
     Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the Company's
officers, directors, and persons who own more than ten percent of a registered

changes in ownership on Forms 3, 4 and 5 with the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC), the New York Stock Exchange and the American Stock Exchange.
Officers, directors

<PAGE>
and greater than ten percent shareholders are required by the SEC regulations to
furnish the Company with copies of all Forms 3, 4 and 5 they file.
 
     Based solely on the Company's review of the copies of such forms it has
received, the Company believes that all its officers, directors, and greater
than ten percent beneficial owners complied with all filing requirements
applicable to them with respect to transactions during fiscal 1994.

held during the period he served on such committees.
 
     The Board of Directors has established four standing committees: (1) the

EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT
 
     Effective January 1991, the Company renewed the employment agreement with
Albert H. Nahmad for a 5-year term. Pursuant to the agreement, Mr. Nahmad is
employed as the Company's President until January 31, 1996 and is entitled to
receive an annual salary of not less than $325,000.

REVERSE SPLIT DOLLAR AGREEMENT
 
     The Company's executive officers participate in a reverse split dollar
insurance program which provides the Company limited interests in the insurance
policies, including death benefits aggregating approximately $5 million plus any
prepaid and unearned premiums. Under the insurance program, the officers retain
all incidents of ownership in excess of the Company's limited interests.

KEY EXECUTIVE DEFERRED COMPENSATION AGREEMENT
 
     The Company entered into a Key Executive Deferred Compensation Agreement
(the 'Deferred Compensation Agreement') on January 31, 1983, with Mr. Nahmad
that provides benefits to Mr. Nahmad or his family upon disability, death or
retirement or upon change in control of the Company. The minimum monthly benefit
payable under the plan is based on Mr. Nahmad's length of service to age 65 and
is the lesser of one-twelfth (1/12) of 10% of (i) $727,000 plus certain amounts
accrued for each year of service, or (ii) his maximum annual salary prior to the
event triggering payment of benefits. The estimated minimum annual benefits
payable to Mr. Nahmad upon retirement at age 65 and the service to the Company
that will have been completed by him are $72,700 and 33 years, respectively.

<PAGE>
                       COMMITTEES' REPORT TO SHAREHOLDERS
 
     The Company's executive compensation programs are based on three
components: base salary, annual incentives, and long-term compensation; each
intended as an important piece of the overall compensation philosophy.
 
     Base salary is used to attract and retain the Company's key executives and
is calculated using comparisons with the Company's industry competitors and/or
companies of similar market value. Salaries are reviewed by the Compensation
Committee on an annual basis.
 
     Annual incentives are a significant component of executive compensation,
reflecting the Company's belief that management's contribution to shareholder
returns (via increasing stock prices and dividends) comes from maximizing
earnings and the potential of the Company. Each executive officer has an annual
incentive opportunity based upon a percentage of pre-tax earnings of the
Company. By its extensive reliance on this incentive compensation system, which
has been employed by the Company for the Chief Executive Officer without
material change for more than 5 years, the Company links a substantial portion
of the executive officers' annual pay directly to profits. As a result of this
approach, the Company's executives' total compensation is likely to vary from
year to year more significantly than the pay of executives of many of the
Company's competitors. This philosophy is essential to an entrepreneurial
business such as the Company's business. Certain other employees have their pay
levels set primarily in relation to comparisons to similar executives of
competitors, with additional annual incentives based on the attainment of
specific objectives supporting the overall goals of the Company.
 
     In terms of long-term compensation, management incentives generally are
provided through annual grants of stock options to the Company's executives to
retain and motivate executives to improve the Company's stock value. Stock
options have been granted at an exercise price equal to the closing price of the
Company's Common Stock or Class B Common Stock as reported by the New York Stock
Exchange and the American Stock Exchange, respectively, on the day prior to the
date of grant. Accordingly, grants of stock options will produce value only if
there are increases in the underlying stock price. There were no grants of stock
options to executive officers in 1994. The Company provides no defined benefit
pension plan nor supplemental executive retirement plan but does provide a
401(k) plan for all of its employees employed for at least one year.
 
     In 1994, the Company's pre-tax earnings increased to $12,028,000, up 33%
from $9,017,000 in 1993 (excluding non-recurring income from insurance proceeds
following Hurricane Andrew), despite continued economic weakness in California,
one of the Company's primary markets. These results include the full-year
operation of Comfort Supply Inc., acquired in May 1993, which positioned the
Company in the very important Texas market. During the last five years, a time
period among the most challenging faced in the history of the home building
industry, management through its strategy of acquisitions and capturing
replacement market share has achieved consistent growth in earnings and has been
successful in positioning the Company as a clear leader in the residential
central air conditioner industry in Florida, California and Texas, the three
largest air conditioner markets in the United States.
 
     These successful efforts of the Company's management team were led by the
Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, Albert H. Nahmad. Mr. Nahmad's
base compensation was increased during 1994 to $368,391, representing a 3% cost
of living increase from his 1993 base salary. As discussed in more detail below,
Mr. Nahmad and other key executives of the Company received a significant
portion of their total compensation through incentive compensation.
 
                                       12

<PAGE>
     In order to promote an increase in net worth of the Company, maximize the
return to shareholders and effectively motivate senior management, the executive
compensation philosophy of the Company has been to link compensation with
Company performance. In order to take advantage of income tax rates prevailing
at the time, the Committee approved the payment of bonuses to executive officers
in 1992 which normally would have been paid in 1993 and certain bonuses in 1993
and 1994 which normally would have been paid in 1994 and 1995, respectively.
Therefore Mr. Nahmad received 59% of his cash compensation related to 1994 from
incentives. The Committee believes that this represents evidence of the strong
and explicit link between executive compensation and the creation of shareholder
value.
 
     Decisions with regard to compensation of the Company's executives are made
by the two-member Compensation Committee, which has meetings at least once a
year and is called upon to meet more often when the need arises. Decisions with
regard to stock options for all employees of the Company are made by the
two-member Stock Option Committee, which is called upon to meet when the need
arises. Each member of the Committees is a non-employee director. The executive
compensation practices of the Company are constantly re-evaluated to ensure
their relevance, their support of the strategic goals of the Company and their
contribution to the creation of shareholder value.
 
     The above Committees' Report to Shareholders of the Compensation and Stock
Option Committees and the Company's Common Stock Price Performance Graph which
follows shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference by any general
statement incorporating this Proxy Statement by reference into any filing under
the Securities Act of 1933 or under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, except
to the extent that the Company specifically incorporates this information by

     In December 1993, the Internal Revenue Service issued proposed regulations
concerning compliance with Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986,
as amended (the 'Code'). Section 162(m) generally disallows a public company's
deduction for compensation to any one employee in excess of $1 million per year
unless the compensation is pursuant to a plan approved by the public company's
shareholders. Amounts payable to Mr. Nahmad pursuant to his current employment
agreement are excluded under Section 162(m) as his current employment agreement
was in effect prior to February 17, 1993 and has not been materially modified.
Accordingly, the Compensation Committee does not anticipate that the Named
Executive Officers will receive annual cash compensation in excess of the $1
million cap provided in Section 162(m) in 1995. The Compensation Committee
intends to take the necessary steps to ensure compliance with Section 162(m) of
the Code when Mr. Nahmad's present employment agreement expires and by
proposing, within the time permitted under Section 162(m), an amendment to the
Company's stock option plan to provide a limitation on the number of shares for
which options may be granted to any one participant.

of the Company to 40,000,000.
 
     Following is Article III, paragraph A. of the Company's Amended and
Restated Articles of Incorporation as proposed to be in effect upon the adoption
of the Proposal to amend the Articles of Incorporation:

                                  Article III
 
     A. The aggregate number of shares of Capital Stock which the Corporation
shall have the authority to issue is 44,000,000 shares, of which 40,000,000
shares, at the par value of $.50 per share, shall be designated as Common Stock
and 4,000,000 shares, at the par value of $.50 per share, shall be designated as
Class B Common Stock.
 
     THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE 'FOR' APPROVAL OF THIS AMENDMENT
TO THE COMPANY'S AMENDED AND RESTATED ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION.
