Our origin story:

Committed to Growth, Excellence and Service.

Our Founder, Stephen S. Akian, CPD began his career as an apprentice plumber for a company in Dorchester, MA. On his first day he repaired a pipe feeding a 3 family home. The moment he saw his clients fill with appreciation and gratitude to have their water back up and running was the moment he discovered how fulfilling a career in the trades was. Helping people with their heating, cooling and plumbing systems would become a passion of his.

His career quickly advanced, and he would soon find himself working on the design and management team of a large company located in Cambridge, MA, with high-profile clients such as Harvard University, BU, BC, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, MGH, BWH, Google, and many more. Projects ranged from simple renovations to mission-critical installations where the ability to plan, coordinate and execute is always imperative.

It was here that Stephen realized that this level of expertise and excellence was missing from the home services industry and so Akian Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning was brought to life.

Our core values:
  1. Teamwork – We work as one.
  2. Excellence – We strive for excellence.
  3. Persevere – We get it done.
  4. Communication – Clear, direct with respect.
  5. Growth – We learn, build and grow.

Award-Winning Service

Voted “Best of the Best” in 2018 by Market Surveys of America, we are the industry leader in our respective disciplines. With hundreds of 5-star reviews across the internet and a client base in the thousands, our devotion to providing excellent customer service and methods are proven.


Knowledge is power, but knowing how to apply that knowledge is just as important. Thanks to our extensive experience, this application is something at which Akian Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning excels. With a market that is forever changing (especially in the heating and hot water industries), we are constantly attending training to keep up-to-date with the newest technologies. In addition to undergoing continuous training to keep our skills sharp, we also take educational trips together. Recently, our team went to a plumbing museum to learn more about the history of the industry to which we have dedicated ourselves. The pictures from this trip can be found here on the page!

Taking Pride in a Job Well Done

We take pride in our trade. As plumbers, our primary responsibility is to protect the health of the nation! Thanks to plumbing and heating professionals, we have clean running water to drink, hot water to bathe and wash clothes and dishes with, and heat to keep warm in the winter! At Akian Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, our Watertown plumbers and HVAC technicians are committed to providing this high level of service no matter how large or small the project may be.

Practical Applications

Not all systems are created equal. Knowing what is best for your specific situation is another attribute that we pride ourselves in. This “know-how” is particularly valuable to heating and hot water systems, such as deciding between tankless water heaters vs. traditional tank water heaters or standard heating systems and boilers vs. high-efficiency heating systems. If you’re wondering which system is best for you, we can help!
