The Best AC and Heating Companies in Tampa

Published: July 19, 2014

The Tampa Bay area has hundreds and hundreds of licensed air conditioning contractors to choose from that service the millions and millions of residents throughout the Tampa, Clearwater and St Petersburg area. Choosing the right contractor is an important decision because they can save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars over the life of your HVAC system. With so many to choose from, it may seem overwhelming. Below are the best three AC contractors we have worked with in the Tampa area.

  1. Affordable Air Solutions

    Affordable Air Solutions is a large volume dealer that is capable of handling multiple projects at a time. The owner spends a substantial amount of time in the field showing his dedication to the quality of work performed by his technicians. They have a great customer service department and seem to go the extra mile often. As with the other recommended companies, Affordable Air Solutions operates 7 days a week.

  2. Melo Air Inc

    Although Melo Air employs less than 5 people, this company does substantial volume. All of their technicians are experts in both new system installation and diagnosing and repairing broken air conditioners and heat pump equipment. This company does not sleep as they operate 7 days a week and on holidays. They also offer 24 hour emergency service. In addition to the long hours and quick response times, Melo Air also covers a large geographical area that includes the entire Tampa Bay, as far east as Lakeland and south to Northport.

  3. 72 Degrees Heating And Air Conditioning

    Although this company is also great for residential replacements, they are ideal for any builder, property manager or invester that owns many locations. They have the ability to provide high quality new air conditioning and heat pump installations in a substantial volume and at a great cost. The owners have been in the HVAC and construction business for many years. In addition to AC they also have other service including duct cleaning, insulation blowing and indoor air quality products.


When it comes to air conditioning in Tampa, it isn't worth the risk of taking a shot in the dark with a phone book or on the first ad you see. Hiring the right contractor will save you time, money and frustration. You can't go wrong with my three recommendations.
