    Lizette P.

    Colonial Heights, Virginia - August, 2016

  • Yesterday evening around 7pm we realized the outside unit fan wasn’t working. We don’t have a regular HVAC company that we use. We actually got the phone book out and called Barnes Htg & Cooling not knowing that Southern Goodman had bought it. The person on call was at another call at the time and we were told he would call us when he was on his way. He did call around 9:40pm and got to the house around 10:30. This man had already worked that day and here it was a Friday night at 10:30. I was so thankful he was able to come! I believe his name was Kevin. He was very polite and patient with questions. Answered them all. After making a few decisions, one of which was to buy a maintenance plan, we weren’t charged the trip call and saved 15% on the part. I had already planned on getting the system looked at in a couple months anyway, so now that will happen this fall and next spring and unless there is something wrong it won’t cost anything additional. I look forward to dealing with Southern Goodman, as I know it will be a positive experience based on last night.

    Robert H.

    Disputanta, Virginia - August, 2017

  • Patrick was my service man. He arrived on time even though I called for an appointment on that day. Patrick was professional and polite. He took the time to explain to me what was wrong with my air conditioning, plus all of my other questions. Most of all, he was honest. When a service person comes to fix your product you are at their mercy. Patrick could have told me so much more was wrong and charged me so much more. However, he was honest, professional, and polite. I have already referred Patrick to another and she too was very happy.

    Tawny F.

    Midlothian, Virginia - July, 2017

  • Kori is an exceptional human being, very professional, caring and knowledgeable of his profession. He superseded the expectations of quality customer service. Please send Kori out for the install. We enjoyed his services!

  • About two weeks ago, the air conditioning on my 3rd floor died. Of course, it had to happen during the heat wave. I called Barnes Heating and Cooling and learned they had become Southern Goodman Heating and Cooling. The representative was very friendly and they were able to come out with no extra charge. Brian was very prompt and professional. He carried out what appeared to be a very methodical inspection, and found the problems. He was extra helpful in managing some nearby plants that were in his way – no charge – and offered helpful suggestions. The prices seemed reasonable and I am looking forward to enjoying air again in the “grandkids’ Nest”.

    Edward H.

    Chesterfield, Virginia - July, 2017

  • On Tuesday, July 18th, 2017, I came home to no air conditioning. With the temperatures expected to be in the high 90s for the remainder of the week, I was in a panic. When I called, I spoke to Jennifer, who assured me she would get a technician out as soon as possible. When Patrick arrived a hour later, I was quite pleased. He was courteous, professional and informative. He explained everything he was doing. Considering this was a surprise, he was able to work under poor conditions. My utility room was not ready for visitors. Because of the service I received, you’ve got a new customer. Thank you Patrick and Jennifer. Customer service still exists.

However, after having issues of the same type, your service tech, Brian came out and found and fixed the issue. I am very impressed with your customer service from the professional way the call is handled to the very professional, kind and thorough service that Brian provided. Obviously you as a company understand that doing whatever it takes to help the customer will mean more business for the company. I appreciate the high level of courtesy and knowledge from your customer and technical service. Brian is welcome back anytime should I need any further service or when I am ready for a new system. Thank you

    June H.

    Colonial Heights, Virginia - July, 2017

  • Billy installed our new air handler on June 8, 2017. He was a true professional. He worked continuously on the installation stopping only to answer our questions or explain something about the new system. He was very willing to share his knowledge with us so we could understand our new systems operation.
    Date of Service 6-6-17
    On a routine maintenance check, Wyatt and Patrick checked the existing system and informed us about a leak in the coils. They were very helping about helping us choose the best thing to do about replacing/repairing the leak and helping us with financing. The unit was installed two days later.
    Date of Service 6-29-17
    Patrick came for a follow-up inspection on the new unit. There were a couple minor adjustments to be made and several homeowner questions to answer. He has put our minds to ease about the new unit since it is newer and a little different from the one we have been used to.

    George W.

    Richmond, Virginia - June, 2017

  • So impressed with the entire team for my service, starting with Tiffany over the phone to the actual work conducted by Brian & Kori. Their attention to detail in addition to being on time is noteworthy. Please pass on my “Thanks & job well done.” You are fortunate to have them on our team.

    Evelyn W.

    Sandy Brook, Virginia - June, 2017

  • 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+!

    Peggy C.

    Colonial Heights, Virginia - May, 2017

  • 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.

    Andrea S.

    Midlothian, Virginia - April, 2017

  • 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.

    Carlene W.

    Spring Grove, Virginia - December 2016

  • 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.

    Jing G.

    Moseley, Virginia - December 2016

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Southern Goodman Mechanical addressed our pressing concerns about carbon monoxide and the conditions of those units and their effective and safe operation after garage floor was professionally lifted.

    Their professionalism, knowledge, across-the-board advanced skill sets, common courtesy and sensitivity were greatly appreciated. I highly recommend them.

    Thank goodness for professionalism and people who care about people and take the time to go out of their way to do the right thing.

  • Southern Goodman Mechanical made a prearranged service call to our home on December 2, 2015. The tech arrived punctually and demonstrated a professional attitude and demeanor. He was able to determine the problem we were having with our heating system, and he made the necessary adjustments and repairs successfully.

    We are very happy with Southern Goodman Mechanical’s work. The overall outcome they provided was excellent. We have had a good relationship with Southern Goodman Mechanical, and we will definitely call them again in the future.
