“I love these guys!! Every person that I have talked to there has been SO helpful. My air conditioner broke slightly over 2 weeks ago. It’s been 95 degrees out this week and my home warranty is laughable. They did their very best to go out of their way to make sure they could get me taken care of with what they had to work with. My air conditioning unit is due to be repaired in two days and I can’t wait. I’m ecstatic with the service and diligence on their end! ” – Heather S. (view more)

We switched to Best a few years ago when we moved into a new house and have been pleased with every visit, including the fall check up we had today with James M who even took a few minutes to help calm down and socialize a little rescue puppy we recently adopted. Our last provider answered every call we made, which was plenty because the furnace they had sold us kept malfunctioning, with a nauseating “How can we make your day better today.” Best, meanwhile, simply gets the job done with no pretense. Definitely, recommend them if you want service rather than platitudes.

Best Heating, Cooling, and Electric were fabulous. Our ac went out in the hottest week in August. They were able to come out within 48 hours, serviced our unit, replaced a bad capacitor and had it cooling in no time.

Garett was amazing to work with. He was right on top of any questions we had and dealt with our insurance issues with us. I recommend working with him anytime!!
