What Our Customers Are Saying

We finally found a great HVAC company we can trust. Blake came out on a Saturday and was so detailed. He explained the exact problem and how to fix it. He was very professional and courteous. We will be purchasing a maintenance plan to ensure our system is functioning at it's best ability. Thanks Ryan for reaching out and sending Blake out. He was the BEST!


-Melody B.

My wife and I are extremely happy with Carolina Air Services. Tracy and his team have been providing semi annual service for us as well as emergency repair services for many years. We recently had them replace two 20 year old HVAC systems with modern, updated equipment. This installation was not a simple replacement. It involved relocating both the indoor furnaces and outdoor units to accomplish some other goals that we have. All of Carolina Air Services team members were polite, respectful and most importantly knowledgeable. The job was completed quickly with no interruption in heat or cooling. We give them our highest recommendation!


-Gary K.

Tracy and his team are an excellent team to do business with. They treat you with awesome respect and kindness. They are very patient with you while answering your questions and addressing your concerns. They will do their best to fix the issue at the best rate possible. They guarantee their work.


-Lisa L.

We required service to our furnace during the extreme cold this past winter and as it turned out a replacement of our unit. Tracey and his team were able to perform the replacement in 24 hours, doing an excellent job and upgrading us to a newer more efficient product. I would recommend them for their knowledge, work ethic and excellent customer service.


-Judy K.

I have called Tracy 3-4 times over the last couple years when my AC wasn't working properly and he has always respoded quickly. He and his team are always polite and do a good job! They are honest! It is so nice to work with people that I can say this about. Thank you Tracy and guys for helping me again!

-Lowell Bonnett

Tracy and his team were the best. They came quickly within an hour on a hot Saturday. They fixed my air conditioning problem quickly and were professional and pleasant the whole time. It was one of the best service calls I have ever had. Thanks


-Warren Briggs

Called Tracy on a Sunday morning at 10am and he was at my house at 1015am. He had the A/C fixed within 20 minutes. Very professional and punctual. I will recommend you and your company to everyone that I can. Thanks again.


-Bradley Macey

Tracy and his team provide fast and quality service at a fair price. We had our AC break down on July 4 th and were pleasantly surprised that they were able to come out to repair our AC on a holiday. Tracy returns calls promptly and shows up when he says he is going to. I have used him twice now and been very satisfied both times.
