  • 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.
