Southern—Since 1959

Southern Heating and Air is a proud member of the Midlands community of South Carolina. Our heating and cooling shop has been here so long, we can’t remember exactly what used to sit on the corner of Maple and Millwood before we moved in back in 1959. 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?
