We have been using Gilman Heating, Cooling and Plumbing for a few years and are totally delighted in the service they provide. My husband is no longer able to do much due to health reasons but the staff is always so helpful.

Today, Cory came to do the annual cooling checkup. He is extremely friendly, explains everything so I understand, answers my questions and even helped locate something in the attic for me on a hot day!

Above and beyond!

I had never dealt with Gilman before yesterday, but I'll be calling them again when problems arise. My tenant's AC went out yesterday morning, I called Gilman and they had someone there by lunch time. The Technician (Colby) called after he had found the problem, explained the issue and gave me a quote on the spot. He had the AC up and running shortly after.

I am very impressed as a first-time customer. I will definitely use them again.

Doug is not only highly professional, but he is personable. I am blown away by his knowledge for the trade and his great problem-solving skills. He delivers the most trustworthy service I’ve ever had, is an advocate for the customer, and works hard to ensure that we receive the best quality work there is. His friendly attitude and patience are a breath of fresh air. Doug with Gilman has a customer for life!

They treat their customers very well. They installed a new HVAC unit last August, and offered a free tune up within 12 months. Instead of relying on their customers to take them up on that offer, they contact you to make sure you take full advantage of the benefit. I'm impressed overall.

First, Doug is fantastic to have in my home. Both times we’ve had to use your company for our HVAC issues, he was the tech that came. Both times he has been great! He takes the time to explain things.. what he’s going to be doing, what he’s about to do and he is very knowledgeable. He provides an organic customer service experience, which is something I strive for my agents to provide to customers at my job. As a Operations Manager, he is someone that I would love to have as a part of my leadership team. Overall, we’ve had a great experience from calling in to schedule the appointment, the communication in between and the timely repairs made.

A big thank you again to Doug!!!

Happened to run into a service guy while walking the dog and had an inquiry about a small project. He met me 5 minutes later to see what I needed and then 20 mins later I’m scheduling an appointment for service the next day! The following day I get a call that they are ahead of schedule and would like to come earlier. Heck yeah! Jake and his helper were prompt and extremely courteous and professional. The duct install is just perfect and I am thrilled with the service. Thanks!

Both heating and air service techs are top notch. They are on time, super polite and courteous. Take the time to explain everything they have done. I trust that I will not be sold something I don't need and that is worth its weight in Gold!

This was my first-time contacting Gilman for service. I called them for a second opinion. Very professional and honest from start to finish. I will be recommending Gilman to family, friends, and everyone in between.

The first day that I turned on my AC was the day I was leaving for my honeymoon. I noticed that we had a freon leak. I called a larger HVAC company in the area and was placed on a list. I was scrambling to have the house stay cool for the dogs and sitter while we were gone. I stumbled upon calling Gilman, where I found the best HVAC customer service I've ever received. The master HVAC technician, Doug, called me back and left his house at 7pm on a Monday night to top off my freon, evaluate where the leak was located, and gave me an estimate to repair the leak. Doug was very pleasant and answered any questions I had. No doubt, I'm going to be using Gilman from here on out!

Great job needed a new hot water heater -- Gilman came right away within one hour and had me up and running in short order with a new hot water heater installed professionally and at a reasonable price.

- Ralph


Very friendly from the receptionist to the techs. Very honest through the whole process and got my unit running perfectly again. I highly recommend them.

Came home to find my unit blowing hot air. I had rented for years and the landlord always used Gilman so I gave them a call at 5:55pm. The receptionist was super nice and friendly and got my account set up in minutes. Technician Robby, who I had worked with at my old place was here within the hour. He immediately diagnosed the problem and changed the part within minutes. I literally had my AC blowing cold again 60 minutes from the time I placed my call. I can't imagine a service that can do it better and more efficiently than Gilman. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Last year we replaced our HVAC with the RUUD. We have been more comfortable in our home throughout the past winter and summer - but the best part is our level monthly billing from Dominion went from $212 (which we felt was very affordable for an all electric home) to $130 per month!!!!! An $82 dollar savings for more comfort. Thank you Gilman.

"Your technician was absolutely delightful, fantastic, wonderful, amazing, and all of the superlatives you could possibly give him. We would like for him to be our guy. I am so impressed!"

- Will, Richmond, VA


"Thank you for such speedy service for our problem. A special “thank you” to our tech for his work and detailed account of what he thought was taking place. I also want you to know how wonderful it is to have real live people to answer the telephone instead of a recording – that is very comforting. In addition, everyone that answers the phones are so nice, polite and efficient! How do you manage to find such great people (technicians and office staff)?"

"Thank you for your prompt response to our air conditioning crisis. YES- crisis. I am from Pennsylvania and do not tolerate the heat here in Virginia. I recommended your company to my co-workers, nurses are always in need of air conditioning services."

- Eileen, Richmond, VA


"My family and I would like to thank you and your staff for installing the heat pump at our house recently. I cannot express in words how helpful it is to us. Your young Installation Technicians were extremely professional, kind and courteous. You have an incredible team with them. A few years ago, I suffered a stroke and am unable to work full time, so replacing our heat pump ourselves was always something we would have to put off to the future. That really means it would have been unlikely. Due to your generosity, my family and I can now begin to enjoy our house again and not dread winters as we have the past few years. Again, thank you."

- Kenneth, Chesterfield, VA


"On behalf of my husband and I, we would like to take this time to commend one of your employees. In June, he came to service our AC system. He was so mannerable, knew what he was doing, yet humble and professional. He even took time to clean about the leaves in the AC system that were blocking the drainage ducts. All the while he was steadily working with me hovering. He wrote down the date on my filters as a reminder when I need to change it. I loved this tip and will forever us it. About a week later, I had to call your on call service because the AC had gone out. The same tech was on call; quickly called me back; remembered us; made a plan of action; kept it and came to the house the days, which was a Sunday – Father’s Day. He quickly assessed the situation; knew exactly what to do; had the parts on his vehicle and fixed the problem in a flash. All this said, he is a wonderful person, employee and someone that clearly reflects the values and priorities of your company. He is incredible."

- The Brown Family, Richmond, VA


"Your team is always polite and courteous and most of all very efficient in their work. You all deserve a big hand!"


"Thank you so much for caring about me, not only as a customer, but a person. Your technician was very punctual and explained his work, and he is personable. For 11 years we have been satisfied with Gilman. You have set the bar even higher by going above and beyond my needs. I am a customer for life and will always recommend Gilman. Thank you are two small words, but are packing with a lot of meaning."

- Annette, Ashland VA


"You add a little “wonderful” to everything you do. Thanks for what you did for me – and thanks for being YOU!"

- Marcia, Bumpass, VA
