We had our HVAC system repaired when the AC stopped working. They had a waitlist but were very responsive to the fact that we had an infant and squeezed us in the same day. Our technician, Will, was great! He kept us informed of his ETA throughout the waitlist process, was very thorough, and was finished in a timely manner. Highly recommend Cool Care & Will!

Always had great experience with Cool Care. Last Christmas Eve they came and installed a new system since our heat just quit working. They are coming tomorrow to work under the house. I know they will do a great job!***Clayton just came out and got our thermostat back up. They got us as soon as possible. We are so happy we called Cool Care a couple of years ago. Thank you Clayton!

My technician was Matthew Nelson. He and his partner were fantastic. They completed the work quickly with minimal impact to me or my working from home. Matthew has been the technician to come to my house every time I have needed something from Cool Care and has never let me down. Would definitely recommend you ask for him.

Several months ago Cool Care came out to replace the entire duct system on one side of my house as well as correcting problems with return sizing. They were excellent, and the airflow has been so much better throughout the house.Today John and Bryant came to the house in order to move a duct and AC vent on the other side of the house due to a remodel of the pantry. They were super polite, quick, and efficient. Exactly what I needed and ahead of the schedule I expected. John and Bryant did a great job eliminating the mess from cutting sheetrock and everything was as good or better than when they started. Cannot say enough good things about both trips to my house and the work done.THANKS!!!

My AC went out. I called my HVAC company only to find out they went out of business. I went to reviews on the web and found Cool Care 24 hr service. I called Cool Care Heating & Air. Cool Care Heating & Air stepped in and saved the day. They answered the phone. The person answering the phone was great. She was polite, kind and listened to my problem. They have great communication. I was told when the tech would be arriving , when the tech was on the way to the house and they did a follow up. Jeremain was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, polite and explained everything that he did and why. He had the parts needed to get my system back running. This was one of the best experiences that I have ever had. I have now made this my HVAC company. Being in my sixties I wanted a company that was reasonable, dependable and knowledgable. Cool Care is that company and I would recommend them for all your HVAC needs. Job well done !!!

I was very impressed with cool care all the way around! The front office staff was very delightful to work with and prompt in getting back to me when I had questions. Being a female living alone it is very hard trusting certain companies to not take advantage of you when it comes to work being done and prices. After having two bad experiences with two over HVAC companies I decided to try cool care and I am so happy I did.Not only was my entire unit replaced in one day but my technician "John" was so kind and helpful. The day after my unit was put in, all of the electricity in my house went out. I called John and he came out and looked to see if the new unit had anything to do with this issue. Come to find out I had a loose wire in one of my electrical sockets that he fixed out of the kindness of his heart on a Saturday! He could have easily left and told me to call an electrician.I have had my unit for about two months now and I have noticed a difference in my bill as well. I am beyond happy with Cool Care and will not only refer them to anyone I know but continue to use them!

Jody and Russell were amazing. They both walked me through everything they were doing. They installed a new AC system, and heat sealed my ducts and replaced the thermostat. I understood what was being done from start to finish. They were polite, on time, professional, and cleaned everything up just the way it was before they got there. I am impressed with Cool Care, and plan to give them more business when I add a gas stove line, and tankless water heater in the next few months! Thank you Cool Care for treating me like family!!!

Clay B. with Cool Care did a GREAT job for us. He immediately spotted what the issue was and quickly and efficiently repaired it. Our house has not been able to keep up with the heat all summer and we thought we would have to put a whole new AC unit in. Thanks to Clay, the house is now extremely comfortable! Clay was very professional and did a wonderful job.

We’ve been using Cool Care for a few years now. They completely replaced one of our 3 units when it went out two years ago. The owner personally came out and walked me through the whole process and cost options. The following year our dog got under the house and destroyed all the ducts. They came out quickly and had repaired everything the next day. Our 10+ year upstairs unit went out recently and they came out and the technician, Angel, was great! We thought the unit was done for, but he was able to diagnose the problem and fix it. A week later it’s still going strong! Very knowledgeable staff both in and outside of the office. The woman who I spoke with on the phone answered all of my questions and was extremely pleasant despite my lack of HVAC knowledge. Will definitely be sticking with them for years to come!

I have been in the business of maintenance for multi-family homes for 16 years, and I am completely impressed with this company. Their customer service and professionalism is the best. Taylor in the office is always so friendly when I call. And the 2 technicians I've had the pleasure of working with named Louis and Jessie were very nice, knowledgeable, and patient when explaining to me what was need for repairs. I'm looking forward to doing business with them all summer. Highly Recommended.

I have been a customer of Cool Care for around 6 years. They have installed my gas logs and installed and maintained my hvac system. Long story short, the unit installed a few years ago had numerous issues (no fault of Cool Care) and required a lot of service calls. The final verdict a couple of months ago when the system just stopped working was that it was a lemon. Cool Care contacted Carrier and the hvac system was replaced. I am so happy with the new system and my power bills have drastically dropped. Every single tech that came to my home was always so nice and professional. Always on time and on occasion called to see if they could come early. In the midst of all the issues with my old unit, the owner, Kenny Wardlaw, came to my home on a Saturday to try to get the system to work.I love using local and family owned businesses-they just seem to care more about the quality of service.In this day and time -that means a lot from a company!

We have been doing business with Cool Care since Kenny started this company. He was actually the technician we always called on when he was with another company. We followed him as he opened Cool Care. He and his team are informative, knowledgeable , thorough and attentive. Would not call anyone else for our HVAC needs.

I was introduced to Cool Care at a city gathering and learned how much Kenny and his staff knew about old systems and new rebates. Cool Care added insulation, replaced my 38 year old furnace and replaced my ductwork in my 100+ year old house. He guided me thru the process and assisted by obtaining rebates and I was thrilled to have someone that was willing to walk me thru the process that I felt I could trust.I love that they are now available during normal off hours because that is usually when something stops working.Thanks !

I would highly recommend Cool Care!My 20 year old HVAC unit needed to be replaced after multiple issues and it just didn’t make sense to pay hundreds in repairs with a unit so old and flakey.These guys were great from the quoting me a new unit, installing it, doing the Aeroseal for my ducts and everything in between. They were always on time (or even early) very professional and friendly! I have to give a shout out to John, he installed my unit and was so helpful and to Taylor who was so easy to correspond with! All the employees I’ve encountered here have been great, thank y’all for everything!

I am a realtor in Columbia, SC and use Cool Care Heating and Air for all my clients and inspections! I personally use them on my primary home and rental properties. 5 star company and service. I really love the fact that I can email Marsha Lee and schedule everything through her. The convenience and efficiency of me being able to email her and her timely responses makes everything easier and streamlined. Call them for any HVAC needs! Thanks Cool Care and Marsha!

John, Lewis and Zac did an awesome job replacing my entire HVAC system. Fast, friendly and great to work with. Polite, professional and all of the above. Took the time to explain everything and made sure system was working properly. Even had to change settings in thermostat to make system work correctly due to another local company, who I will not name, programming it wrong.

John Ulness came out and fixed our HVAC after others could not. He was an absolute professional and pleasure to work with. He obviously was very experienced and knowledgeable. We are beyond grateful and extremely pleased with the job he did. We are now forever Cool Care Heating & Air customers, solely because of John and he will be the only one to work on our system from here on out.Thank you,Derek Casey

John Ulness with Cool Care Heating and Air, hands down best heating and air technician we've ever used. We've been trying to get our heating fixed for over a year and he came in and handled the problem quickly. Extremely professional and intelligent. Will be 100% who we call if we ever have anymore issues. (I get the feeling we won't) 10/10 absolutely do recommend!!!!

Cool Care has changed out my equipment for several of my properties. The process is always smooth and effortless. The install coordinator, Taylor, is very knowledgeable and communicative. They also complete my real estate inspection letters and always do an outstanding job. I would highly recommend Cool Care for all of your heating & air needs!

Could not be happier with Cool Care and the two units we’ve replaced over the last couple of years. We continue to be pleased with tech support and maintenance - Matt performed our annual maintenance last week and went above and beyond answering questions and checking system operations that were technically not included in this service call. He took extra time to make sure we were satisfied. Highly recommend!

Award-Winning HVAC Service
Serving Columbia SC Since 2001

 

AC Repair, Indoor Air Quality

With summer temperatures in Columbia regularly spiking into the 90s or higher it is important to have a reliable air conditioning service. We offer responsive HVAC repair services as well high-quality HVAC installations for those that want their home's comfort level increased without having an expensive project done on them; we also provide affordable HVAC maintenance agreements so you don't end up spending more than necessary at one time!

What does HVAC stand for?

The term HVAC is an abbreviation of the full name Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. They are all essential parts of keeping a comfortable indoor air quality within your living space or building. If you would like to know more about how they work, what can go wrong with them and if there are people who specialize in hvac repair, then read on!

Heat The first part (and often most important) of any HVAC system is providing heat to the affected area. Without heat that area will quickly become cold and uncomfortable, and the many processes which we rely on for our existence will suffer. You can find out more about how HVAC systems provide heat here.

Ventilation The next part is ventilation – this sounds complicated but it's actually very simple. It simply involves ensuring that you have fresh air in your living area or building as people use up oxygen as they breathe which is important for indoor air quality. If you don't have a great deal of outside air coming into your home then this isn't so important, but if you have windows open to let some air flow around your living space then it becomes vital! This is what HVAC ventilation systems do.

Air Conditioning If you live in a particularly hot climate, like Columbia South Carolina, then air conditioning is vital. Without an HVAC air conditioning your home can become uncomfortably hot and this makes many things uncomfortable and is bad for indoor air quality. You may also want to relax in front of the TV at home without having sweat dripping down your face, so you'll need to install an AC system! 

Indoor Air Quality

Do You Have Indoor Air Pollution?

Is your indoor air as fresh as you’d like? According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution might the cause of “allergies” and your air may not be as clean as it looks. Tiny airborne particles, invisible to the eye but harmful to health, may be causing your indoor air to be more polluted than the air outside. Most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, so it makes sense to want indoor air that’s as healthy as possible with a quality HVAC system. View more info
