Gilman Heating Cooling & PlumbingWith over 100 years in the business, Gilman Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is one of the premier plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning companies in Virginia. From our fleet of computer-dispatched service trucks to our factory trained and independently certified HVAC technicians, every part of our business is dedicated to giving our customers top-quality service at affordable prices.


Company History

Since 1917, when Gilman Heating, Cooling & Plumbing was first started as Gilman Bros. Plumbing & Heating, we have been founded on the same principles: earning the trust of our customers and taking pride in our workmanship. A good work ethic and making your home comfort our number one priority are what have made Gilman the leader for plumbing, heating and air conditioning services in the Richmond area. We recently opened a second office in Kilmarnock to better serve our customers in the Northern Neck. In every job, our goal is to offer you the industry’s best and most energy-efficient air quality products and to send expertly trained technicians to your home or business. Our customers’ best compliments about our heating and AC services are their referrals.


Our HVAC and Plumbing Services

Great home comfort starts with great installation, and our trained and certified technicians are fully qualified to install every system we offer up to the manufacturer’s high standards. To better serve our customers, we start every installation project with a professional load calculation that takes square footage, insulation, and other factors into account. We then work with the homeowner to select a properly sized system and get it up and running quickly and efficiently.

Of course, plumbing is an equally important part of home comfort. When your drain is backed up and your toilet is clogged (or, worse, overflows), you need plumbing repair fast. At Gilman, we offer an array of plumbing services that address everything from small pipe leaks to water damage and mold. Whenever you face a plumbing emergency, give our professional plumbers a call.

Ongoing maintenance is a large part of our business and it is very important to keep your plumbing and HVAC systems in optimal condition. We are proud to offer a Precision Tune-Up (PTU) Comfort Plan that includes checks for small, emerging issues along with the calibration adjustments that will help your home heating and cooling equipment running at peak efficiency. The package also includes a 15 percent discount on repair and a 10 percent discount on the installation.

If your air conditioner shuts down or your heating system won’t start or you need plumbing repair, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our air conditioning repair experts will come to your home right away in trucks loaded with all the parts and equipment needed to fix the most common problems. Since repairs never follow a convenient schedule, our repair team is available for emergency calls 24/7.


Our Qualifications

We have demonstrated consistent excellence in terms of customer satisfaction, technical excellence, and brand loyalty. The majority of our technicians hold NATE certification, the most highly regarded qualification in the industry. Thus, we have the expertise needed to install heating and cooling systems up to the manufacturer’s standards and the overall HVAC knowledge to repair and maintain all makes and models. It is this commitment to excellence that sets us apart from other HVAC contractors.
