About Our Charlottesville Heating & AC Service Company

Serving Customers for Over 30 Years

From the first time you contact our team to when your service is complete, you will learn what our customers already know – we are different. Most companies install their heating and cooling systems based on their definition of comfort. The fact is that everyone’s definition of comfort is different, and the only definition that matters in your home is yours. With a commitment to total comfort, Albemarle Heating & Air has always designed heating and cooling systems based upon your needs and with a focus on health, safety, comfort, and the environment.

Created to Serve Your Needs

Tom Kavounas saw the need for a company of superb quality that focused on the Charlottesville area customer’s needs rather than on budget pricing. The response from local architects and builders was overwhelmingly supportive. Albemarle Heating & Air was founded in March of 1988. The business operated from a one bay garage with five people and two old trucks. The company, with its unique customer focus, grew faster than ever anticipated. Word spread from happy clients who were finally comfortable in their homes and buildings. Today, Albemarle Heating & Air is 100% employee owned and comprised of over 80 individuals with some of the best training and experience of any company in the country.
