Hi, I’m Valerie, a NATE Certified HVAC Technician with over 20 years of experience and absolutely love what I do. I especially love helping others gain the knowledge to perform minor tasks to keep their AC unit running smoothly. If you have questions, I have answers. I believe there are no stupid questions except the ones you don’t ask, how else do we learn if not by being taught?

If you’re a homeowner who needs to clear your own drain line, change your thermostat, or rinse your outdoor coils but want to have someone on standby to make sure you don’t miss any steps or do anything wrong…. I can help. If you’re a handy person who is having trouble with their AC and doesn’t want anyone coming to their home or simply wants to learn how to DIY so you’re not stuck the next time you have a problem, contact me first; I can help walk you through some troubleshooting to see if this is something you can fix yourself or if you really should call a technician. If it is something you can fix yourself, I can make sure you know what needs to be done and what tools you will need to do it.

Are you a technician who has run into something odd and doesn’t have anyone to call to be a second set of eyes? I can help, we can video chat and walk through the troubleshooting together to get to the bottom of the issue. Two heads are better than one, I can help you save time on the job and money on wasted materials with my 20 years of experience.

I am a handy person who is mechanically inclined, I learned a lot from working with my dad about thinking outside the box to find a solution to any problem. I do most of my own repairs at my home because I don’t like having anyone come out and try to charge me an arm & a leg for something I can do myself if I just knew how to do it.

I have been in the HVAC industry for 20 years now, I started out doing telemarketing at 16 yrs old in the year 2000, working for my dad’s ac company and have remained in this field ever since. I worked in the office for many years doing everything from customer service, to dispatching to bookkeeping. In 2015 I went back to school and earned my HVAC Diploma and EPA Certifications and began working in the field doing service and repair. I earned my NATE Certification in 2017 and have maintained the education to keep it current. My expertise is in HVAC maintenance, troubleshooting, and repairs and I have also performed a number of installations. You can count on me to help with most HVAC-related things!
