“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.
Jeremy Nash
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!!
Stephanie Lydic
They were able to come out right away and get my new furnace installed and running before the next snow. James and Larry did a great job making sure everything was setup correctly and working before cleaning up and leaving my house nice and warm. I appreciate their work.
Brett Zeller
Very thorough. I went ahead and checked everything out to make sure there weren’t any other problems even though the original issue was an easy fix. Tim was very friendly and very thorough. Appreciate that.

I am very pleased with the service I received from Dennis. He quickly diagnosed an issue with my Nest thermostat and did a great job explaining to me what was wrong and how he was going to fix it. I feel like he really went above and beyond in making sure that it was fixed properly. I will definitely be using Best Heating Cooling & Electric in the future.
Colin Ray
Wonderful service with a smile! Friendly while getting right to work and to the point. My house is no longer 90 degrees and sweltering inside! While our home warranty company assigned Best Heating, Cooling and Electric to us through no choice of our own, this worked out great and we would definitely hire again.
Elisabeth Brunk
Our AC went out within the first 2 weeks of our townhome we purchased. We were assigned Best through our HSA home warranty. They called us that very same day we filed a claim and scheduled an appointment. Super friendly customer service on the phone, and the tech we had fixed our issue and was also very friendly. Great people to work with!

I hand had then out twice to my house once this spring when my AC was not working correctly and they did a job of correcting the issue. They were honest about the problem and the cost to correct it was very reasonable. I then had then out this fall to check and service my furnace and again they were spot on. I would recommend then if you are in need of HVAC service. They are honed and fair and the service personal are very friendly and will explain what the issues are and what your options are….. Thank you
