  • The boys, Dylan and Caleb, showed up on time although we had had a bad storm earlier and I didn’t expect the work to be done that day. Both young men were great, very polite, and very accommodating. They went about their work installing the AC and furnace without wasting time and they cleaned up after themselves so well you wouldn’t have know they had been there. I was greatly impressed by their efficiency but mainly by their politeness. I had my doubts when two young men showed up at my door, but they really knew what they were doing.

    Now, Tracy, the Comfort Adviser, is another story.. She was so full of information and was knowledgeable about every aspect of the product and how it was to be installed. I was amazed by her personality, drive and knowledge. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spent with her. She is definitely an asset to your company. These three employees are definitely keepers. I will be glad to refer your company to others. The service was A+!

  • I first used your company when it was Barnes Heating & Air and continue to be very pleased with your professionalism as well as the courteous customer service of your employees.
    Thank you for being so prompt, courteous and taking care of my comfort needs.

  • I had a complete system installed by Southern Goodman Mechanical.  Duct system and Heat Pump.

    I want to thank Tracy for her promptness, professionalism, and thoroughness. It was a genuine pleasure meeting her.

    I want to add that, unlike other people, she actually took the time to listen to my ideas, and make adjustments to the initial plan. I really appreciate that. ‘Listening’ is a lost art, it seems, and honestly, it is the reason I chose Southern Goodman Mechanical over other bidders. I thank you for that. I hope you will forward this letter to your supervisor, and let him know that you are the reason Southern Goodman Mechanical got the contract.

  • A very nice team of workers were in and out of my house for the best part of a day installing a whole new system. They (Billy, Dylan, & Caleb) were polite, respectful, thoughtful, and professional. It’s also so helpful that staff calls to let the homeowner know when to expect the final inspector. Thank you for your great service.

  • I worked with Tracy, Dylan, Mike and others to get a new furnace unit installed in my crawlspace. They were very helpful and knowledgeable in identifying the unit. When they came, the team had this complex system installed and tested without taking any breaks during a 5-hour span. A couple of glitches popped up later, but they were fixed promptly. Overall, I think highly of their expertise and the professional way this team treated a new customer.

  • I had a new gas furnace and air conditioning system installed in July 2016. The installation went well and I was pleased that Southern Goodman did a wonderful job. They had another tech supervisor come out to inspect the work to make sure the work was done properly. The technicians who installed the unit and those who have been out for the start of the heating season have all been very courteous and clean. I particularly commend Kevin for his positive attitude and professional work. They always wear booties when entering the house. I have now had Southern Goodman perform two HVAC installations as well as a water heater. I signed up for the twice per year service to make sure my systems are working prior to heating and cooling season. One more thing: they recommended a high efficiency air filtration unit which I now use on both of my HVAC units and we have noticed much less dust on our furniture! I highly recommend Southern Goodman!

  • I hired Southern Goodman as a recommendation through Trane to give me a second opinion concerning my heat pump issues. The lead tech came out the very next day. He was very kind and extremely professional. His name was David. I have never received such wonderful customer service from any company in my entire life. The office staff was calling me left and right. Tracy was great and the company immediately took care of my request. This is a fantastic company to work with and I appreciate them going above and beyond to meet my needs. I would recommend them as the best customer service company ever. Thank you for caring about your customers. You deserve an award for being so great!

  • I had a service appointment on 10/14/16 for service on my heat pump. I was contacted by Southern Goodman as a former Barnes Heating and Cooling customer to take advantage of the Dominion Power Rebate for Heat Pump Service. I was very skeptical at first because I had never heard of Southern Goodman Mechanical. My expectations were low because of bad experiences with other service companies.

    My service visit from Southern Goodman was well above what I expected. I received a very pleasant call to remind me about my appointment. The technician, David was prompt, professional and very courteous. He also did a a very detailed service of my heat pump. Needless to say, I will be calling Southern Goodman for all future service and repairs to my heat pump. In addition, thanks Southern for making me aware of the Dominion Rebate Program. Excellent customer service from office personnel and technician.

  • A service tech came to the house the day after I contacted Southern Goodman about an issue with our 16 year old thermal heat & air unit. After assessing the problem and making corrective proposals, the units were placed promptly – the following day. Troy was knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. The follow-up service call also was positive. Justin took care of completing and following up with the initial job.

  • Troy from Southern Goodman came out and serviced our 2 units. They called to confirm and Troy showed up on time. He was very professional and clean – even wore booties inside. Explained everything on both systems and was very timely. Highly recommend!

  • I just want to say how awesome Angelina and Frank were this past Saturday when our downstairs unit froze up. Angelina could not have been more attentive, pleasant, and courteous. Her quick response in returning my call and prompt scheduling of Frank’s call was so appreciated. Frank was an awesome technician who was equally as pleasant, courteous, and considerate. In fact, I’ve requested him next time our units need to be serviced. Thank you for all your excellent customer service.

  • The technician was very respectful and explained my AC gas heat system thoroughly. He knows what he’s talking about and really helped me understand my system. I gratefully appreciate his explanation and friendliness. From 1-10, I’d give him a 10+!!

  • I have been a customer for several years and have always received excellent service from Southern Goodman. The office personnel are a pleasure to talk with and helpful when scheduling appointments for service. The technicians are on time, do their work efficiently and do not try to push extra maintenance on you. At times, they have made suggestions on simple things I can do to fix the problem myself.

  • Sir,
    I want to thank you personally for the speed our new Rinnai was installed. We did not understand that putting the new parts on the old Rinnai (water heater) would not bring it back to life. Thanks again! Your men were great. It was wonderful to have a hot shower last night. Grateful for the return of hot water!

  • “Frank performed the scheduled maintenance service of our Trane unit today. Wow, you have a keeper in him. We have had experience with many different companies through the years and even more technicians, some great some not good, but, one visit from Frank impressed me that he is as good a technician as there is, as well as extremely professional, knowledgeable, and answered all of the questions we asked. With techs like him also serving a great customer service role for your company, you can’t go wrong!”

  • Southern Goodman Mechanical saved my day! After purchasing my second Trane from another company, it never worked right like my original one. Five years of ongoing service calls, the heater would always blow cold air. Finally, this past winter when it was in the 20’s, I called the other company which had been servicing my units for the last 20 years was now out of business. I had an elderly parent living with me and he was freezing.

    I called Southern Goodman in a panic and not only did they come that day but was able to figure out what the problems were with my unit which I considered to still be new. Too many things to mention but the main problem was it had not been installed correctly.

    NOW I have a nice warm house and know who my go to people will be from now on!
