Customer Service is Virginia Air Heating & Cooling’s #1 Priority
We at Virginia Air Heating & Cooling wanted to start off 2023 expressing how THANKFUL we are to have such kind and caring staff to work with every day. Our amazing staff strives to be as professional, kind, caring and always willing to go the extra mile for our customers. We have seen so many ups and downs the last few years with COVID 19, extreme weather damage that closed down factories and shipping issues that required all of us to “think outside the box.”
Our team at Virginia Air Heating & Cooling has managed to keep our focus of providing outstanding customer service during all these hard times. We realized early on the need to be adaptable. This required working every day to install parts as soon as they came in for our clients waiting to get their systems running, driving many hours to get parts that would otherwise take weeks and also being open on holidays, evenings and weekends when a large percentage of our competitors were not.
We realized in urgent situations, we wanted to speak with people at the business, not a computer or call center. Though our team sacrificed not being with our families, it meant our family of customers would have us to depend on to have their HVAC system working safely and effectively.
We went as far as to go looking at different articles and findings to keep us motivated and we posted them for our employees. We wanted to share them with you as to why it is that important to us to PROVIDE EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE, the way we would want to be treated!
