We service and repair all makes and models. We try to repair before we replace, because we want to save you money. Of course, there are times when you will want or need something new—read on, because we do that too!

How do you know when it’s time to replace old equipment? When a component is broken beyond repair, it’s a no brainer! But sometimes a piece of equipment is still working, but it’s just so old and inefficient, it’s wasting your money even at the best of times.

Southern Heating and Air is ready to steer you in the right direction, helping you decide when to replace old heating and air equipment. Then, we will work with you to help you find the best equipment to suit your needs. We will even shop around for you to see if we can save you money on your replacement unit or parts.

Regular maintenance of your heating and air conditioning system  (as recommended by the EPA) can help keep your equipment running smoothly, safely, and efficiently.  Sign up for our maintenance plans to make sure you don’t forget to schedule those regular visits!

In addition to completing a multi-point inspection, we will perform routine maintenance tasks—changing filters, oiling motors (when applicable) and even installing algae tablets in your cooling unit!

Maintenance plan customers will receive:

  • 1 Complete heating inspection per year
  • 1 Complete cooling inspection per year
  • All standard 1-inch filters free of charge
  • 10% Discount on parts for repairs (senior citizens only)

Because home comfort isn’t just about heating and cooling, we provide a range of products to customize the quality of the air in your home. Humidifiers can provide you increased comfort and even health benefits, while Electronic Air Cleaners can help cut down on the number of airborne contaminants that may become trapped in your home.

And don’t forget about your Filters! You may already know how important it is to change your filter regularly, but did you know there are many types of filters available? Each comes with it’s own benefits, such as efficiency, cost savings, reusability, and better filtration. We’ll be happy to help you choose the right filters for your home. And if you live within our delivery area, we’ll even bring them to you!

Whether you are a real estate agent, owner, or prospective buyer, we will be happy to assist you with a real estate inspection.

Southern—Since 1956

Southern Heating and Air is a proud member of the Midlands community of South Carolina. Before we moved to Platt Springs Road in 2021, our heating and cooling shop was on the corner of Maple and Millwood so long, we can’t remember exactly what used to sit there before we moved back in 1956. Residential work is our specialty, but we are happy to serve your commercial building as well.

Current owner James Elks has 37 years (so far!) of HVAC experience under his tool belt. Some might call James a real “ductwork nerd”—in an area where many service providers would be tempted to cut corners, he’s passionate about designing ductwork installations the right way, NOT the easy way. “When you do it right,” James says, “the house is more comfortable and the electric bill’s lower.”

And speaking of lower bills, James and his wife Cat are passionate about saving you money, too! “Fix it first” is our philosophy—we don’t believe in pressuring you into a whole new system just to make a buck. Of course, when it does come time to replace your unit, we’re ready to help you out with timely service and trained technicians who help make the process as smooth and tidy as possible.

In the end, James and Cat believe in listening to you and helping you make the decision that’s best for you and your home. You wouldn’t expect any less from your neighbors, would you?
