A/C Replacement & Installation
2019 BUSINESS OF THE YEAR • CENTURION AWARD • PREMIER DEALER • ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP AWARD • MEDAL OF EXCELLENCE
Tri County Air Conditioning and Heating has proudly served the families and businesses of Manatee, Sarasota, and Charlotte counties with their A/C replacement needs since 1977. We have been owned and operated by the Swanson family from the beginning, with the 2nd generation currently in ownership and the 3rd generation working in the business. With over 100 employees, we are able to provide our customers with the level of high-quality service expected of a corporation while still maintaining the level of genuine care and respect expected of a family business. We operate with Christian values and our mission is at the forefront of everything we do:
"To comfort all in such a way that they are compelled to tell others about their experience and it honors the Great Comforter, Jesus Christ."
WE ARE ABLE TO INSTALL AND SERVICE ALL MAKES AND MODELS, BUT THESE ARE OUR FAVORITE:
We have decades of experience working with various manufacturers of equipment for A/C replacement. Over the years, we have watched as the industry changed from creating systems that were durable to ones that are more efficient and facilitate a better comfort experience. Just like any other appliance in your home, A/C systems don't last as long as they used to. Due to more frequent repairs, we have decided to partner with the manufacturers who have stood the test of time in providing the best response time for warranty parts, service assistance, and who have proven to have a customer-centric mindset. We put our customers first and we want to promote the manufacturers who do the same. Therefore, we are confident that our installation of a system created by one of the above manufacturers, Lennox or York, will provide you with the best comfort experience available.

OVER 36 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I have been working in Sarasota and the surrounding communities for about 30 years and I have enjoyed living in Florida. My wife Melodie and I enjoy all the great outdoors and sunshine Florida has to offer. We have an adult son and two cats. When I am not working, I enjoy most anything that has to do with outdoors and water, boating, fishing, and diving. I have been in this industry since 1984. In the beginning, I swept floors and took inventory. Over the 36+ years, I have been able to acquire vast knowledge of how air conditioning and heating systems can provide comfort.
OVER 31 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
In 1989, I moved to Florida from South Jersey Shore and began working in the air conditioning and heating industry. I worked my way up and was promoted to Sales Manager at the end of that same year. In 2004, I decided to start my own A/C business and led my company until 2011. I proudly brought my customers to Tri County Air in 2012 and I have worked here ever since designing systems as a Comfort Advisor. The best part of my job is being able to meet people from all over the US and fulfill their needs.
OVER 9 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I am from Massachusetts and I moved to Florida in 2000. At first, I started working in the service industry as an Electrician, but I have been in the air conditioning industry specifically since 2011 when I started working for Tri County Air. I have gathered a lot of knowledge during my time here and have earned the Air Advice for Homes Certified Specialist designation and I am also a part of the Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Contractor Program. The greatest part of my job is being able to help customers while finding solutions to improve their comfort.
OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I was born and raised in Venice, FL and graduated from Venice High School in 2004 where I met my beautiful wife, Cortney. We got married in 2009 and have two little ones – Mason and Ellie – and one dog, Mowgli. In 2010, I started working for Tri County Air where I worked my way up until becoming a Comfort Advisor. I was also a firefighter for the City of Venice until a knee injury forced me out of firefighting. The best part about my job here at Tri County Air is getting to meet so many customers. I enjoy arriving to a home without air and leaving the customer with cold air while providing them with the best options for their comfort. When I’m not working, I am spending time together with my family. I also enjoy golfing and cheering on the FSU Seminoles and Miami Dolphins!
OVER 15 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I was born in Sarasota, but I grew up mostly in Adel, GA and then moved back to Florida in 2003. My air conditioning industry experience began 2005 when I started working for Tri County Air. While here, I have worked my way up through the new construction, installation, maintenance, and service departments, and I am now a Comfort Advisor/Service Technician. I enjoy working with everyone here at Tri County Air and the best part of my job is getting a customer’s A/C up and running promptly and being able to offer customers products to best suit their needs at a fair price. When I’m not working, my wife, myself, and our two beautiful girls enjoy spending time together. I also look forward to the times when I am able to hunt, fish and golf.
OVER 28 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I have been in the air conditioning industry since 1992 when I started working for a HVAC company in New England. In 2002, I moved to Florida and began working for Tri County Air where I worked my way up until becoming a Comfort Advisor/Service Technician. I enjoy taking care of customers and keeping their best interests at the forefront of all I do.
OVER 14 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I was born in Tampa along with my twin sister. Two short months later, my family moved to North Port and I have been there ever since. In 2006, I started working at Tri County Air, four months after graduating from North Port High School. I am married to my amazing wife Destiny, and we are parents to three crazy boys. We are devoted Tampa Lightning and Buccaneer fans. Since joining the Tri County Air family, I’ve done everything from new construction HVAC rough-ins to new equipment system installations; I have been a Service Technician and a Comfort Advisor. What I appreciate most about Tri County Air is that they are a Christian based company. The thing I truly love most about my job is my ability to use my knowledge to find solutions that best suit my customers and to meet their comfort needs.
OVER 18 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Hi there, I'm Mike from sunny Sarasota County. I only have 2 true loves in my life: air conditioning and my wife. I'm fortunate that for the last 18 years, I've been able to make time for both. Air conditioning isn't just a job for me, but also a passion. Providing a timely and quality diagnosis of your system is what makes me tick. I strive for excellent customer service. When I'm not working, you can usually find me relaxing with my wife, two daughters, and our animals (2 dogs, 3 cats, a bird, and 2 fish tanks). Hey, that reminds me - make sure you change that air filter if you, like me, have a lot of pets.
OVER 17 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I started my air conditioning career about 17 years ago working in the warehouse of my family's air conditioning company in Ft. Myers. I worked my way up from assembling new construction jobs to lead install for new construction and retrofit installs on existing homes, then to a commercial/residential service tech. I came to Tri County Air in May of 2020 as a Service Tech/Comfort Advisor. My goal is to provide unmatched customer service with innovative and cost-effective solutions to fit every one of my customer’s needs and budgets.
OVER 19 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
I was born and raised in Florida and have been an HVAC technician for 19 years. In 2010, I moved to Texas where I met my wonderful wife, Stacy. We have been married for 8 years and have 2 beautiful daughters, Kayla and Ember. In 2016, we moved back to Florida where I started my career with Tri County Air. I strive to bring excellent service to all my customers and enjoy seeing their smiles!
OVER 1 YEAR OF EXPERIENCE
In 2002, I moved to SW Florida from New England to be closer to my mom. Since then I have fallen in love with the area, especially the gulf, and met many amazing people, some of which are my closest and best friends. My wife, however, I have known since elementary school. We used to take the same bus to school every day! We were married in 2017, and it’s been the best period of my life. Most of my work history is in automotive, but when I had the chance to move to HVAC, I jumped at the opportunity. It is the best professional decision I have made. Coming to Tri County Air was an easy decision, their reputation is top-notch, and I knew this was the kind of company I wanted to be a part of.
WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY
KIND WORDS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
"I felt this was best estimate by far. This afternoon, my air conditioner quit. I called Dave, he returned my call right away after hearing my dilemma and scheduled me for the following Friday for a new install. I was pleased that he could do it then. Thank you Dave."
"My family and I have been with Tri County for many years, why I left I will never know? I have tried two other companies in the meantime, dissatisfied and once again a customer of Tri County. I imagine that is what it took for me to see the difference between other companies compared to Tri County's service and their professionalism! I would recommend Tri County hands down!"
"I have trusted Tri County AC & Heating for several years now and they have never let me down. Their techs are courteous and very knowledgeable about the units they install, maintain and repair. I recommend them completely."
