Comfort Systems USA, Inc. (NYSE: FIX), a leading provider of commercial, industrial and institutional heating, ventilation and air conditioning (“HVAC”) services, today announced that its board of directors has formally selected Brian E.

Mr. Lane, age 54, joined the Company in 2003 and has served as the Company’s President and Chief Operating Officer since March 2010 and as a director since November 2010. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Lane spent 15 years at Halliburton, a global provider of products and services to energy, industrial, and government customers, including employment by Brown and Root, an engineering and construction company. During his tenure, he held various positions in business development, strategy, and project activities, including the position of Regional Director of Europe and Africa. Additionally, he held the position of Vice President at Kvaerner, an international engineering and construction company. Mr. Lane earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Notre Dame and his MBA from Boston College. The board anticipates that Mr. Lane will be elected to the position of Chief Executive Officer upon Mr. Murdy’s retirement as Chief Executive Officer on December 31, 2011.

Mr. Murdy, who will continue to serve the Company as non-executive Chairman of the Company’s board of directors in 2012, commented, “This announcement is the culmination of several years of succession planning by the Company’s board of directors. Brian has been actively involved in all the operations of the Company for the last several years and is well respected and liked by our entire operations team.
