Professional, Reliable Heating & Cooling Solutions


Serving Customers for Over 30 Years


From the first time you contact our team you’ll start to 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 one that matters in your home is your own. With a commitment to total customer satisfaction, 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.

Albemarle Heating & Air: Created to Serve Your Needs

Tom Kavounas saw the need for a company of superb quality that focused on the customer’s needs rather than on budget pricing. Local architects and builders were overwhelmingly supportive of the idea and Albemarle Heating & Air was founded in March of 1988. The business began operations from a one-bay garage with five people and two old trucks. Despite these humble beginnings, the company grew faster than anyone could have anticipated, largely due to its customer-focused philosophy. In no time at all, word spread from happy clients who were finally comfortable in their homes and buildings and Albemarle became a mainstay in the Charlottesville area. Today, Albemarle Heating & Air is comprised of over 80 individuals with some of the best training and experience of any company in the country.
