One thought on “About Us

  1. Had a serious problem with my AC damper system where we had little or no control of temperature on either floor. I was referred to Elite and talked to Christian Apuna. After explaining the problem, Christian was able to identify the issue sent a tech out to survey the issue. Rudy was great and spent a great deal of time checking out the system and showing me where my issues were and what needed to be done. Keith and Caleb were at my door just when they said and completed the job with the least amount of inconvenience. I rarely find this level of Customer service anymore. Christian was incredibly knowledgeable and professional as were Rudy, Keith and Caleb. Christian answered all my questions and did a great job of follow up to make sure everything was done to my satisfaction. Will recommend to anyone needing AC or heating service. Thanks for a great job…..
