Best friendly AC company: CHILL OUT PLUS AIR CONDITIONING AND HEATING

Best friendly AC company

A few years ago, our home’s central AC died an impactful death just as summer was coming on, and I ended up paying too much for a replacement unit. Worse, I was saddled with two guys for maintenance — a nice guy who quickly disappeared, and a surly guy who acted like every call was the height of inconvenience, and passively helped me screw myself out of the final half-year of my warranty (no matter how often you see someone, kids, always insist on the paperwork). CL’s Joey Neill recommended Chill Out, and a couple of amiable yet professional older (than me) guys came out and hooked me up; I’ve been with them ever since. Don’t let the, ahem, chill attitude fool you — they do big jobs and small, they know their shit, and most importantly, they’re honest and care about the customer. 727-502-7338. —Scott Harrell
