Our Altamonte Springs Roots Run DeepAltamonte Springs Ice Machine Repair

The owner of Marathon Air actually started his career working with restaurants in nearby Apopka, as the owner of JP’s Restaurant Supply, which was located on 436 on the way to Altamonte Springs in Apopka.  He owned and operated that small store front on State Road 436 in Apopka, where many local fellow Altamonte Springs business owners shopped in his small store for their restaurant supplies and equipment.  This gave him a unique understanding of refrigeration needs, not shared by many competitor refrigeration service companies.  He started that business in 1991 and eventually turned control over to other members of his family, who still currently operate in Apopka, although in a different building a few blocks away from the old location.  The owner of Marathon Air also partially owns the Dairy Queen Restaurant on 436 in Apopka, so his Apopka and Altamonte Springs roots run deep, and have for many years.  He ventured into air conditioning as part of servicing his store customers with their refrigeration and air conditioning needs.  This led to his full-time service work and movement away from the family restaurant supply store business.

When working in Altamonte Springs and Apopka, the owner of Marathon Air also coordinated ground-up restaurant build-outs, in the refrigeration side of this business.  This soon led to the creation of Marathon Air, a business focused on solving all commercial air conditioning and refrigeration problems, not just restaurants.  He added commercial HVAC to his knowledge about refrigeration.  He decided to shift from Apopka storefront to all-area service mainly because he enjoyed driving in a truck, meeting other business owners, and working with his hands.

Commercial HVAC and Refrigeration Expertise

These days, Marathon Air services a wide variety of commercial customers, incluiding strip malls, stores, gas stations, restaurants, office complexes and buildings, hospitals, churches, and even airports!  We are an all-inclusive Altamonte Springs area company, doing commercial air conditioning and refrigeration replacement and repair work.  Unlike most of our competitors, we are highly focused on commercial refrigeration and HVAC.

Marathon Air provides reliable repair service for your commercial cooling equipment.  We service most name brands such as Trane, Lennox, Carrier, Ruud, True, Manitowoc, Hoshizaki, and hundreds more. We often provide commercial AC preventative maintenance in Altamonte Springs, warranty HVAC Altamonte Springs service, and similar types of Altamonte Springs based AC and refrigeration services for businesses just like yours.

Commercial Air Conditioner Altamonte SpringsWant Proof For Yourself?

Just read the different AC company websites and ask yourself: which company is really focused on commercial?  This matters, if you own a business.  After all, companies advertise for the type of business they want to receive and are competent to handle.  Our almost single-minded focus, particularly at reasonable prices, appears to make us a very different animal in this industry.  We have done nearly 90% commercial AC and refrigeration sales, installations and repairs from day one.  This is where we are comfortable, as you can tell by our website focus, customer list, and photos of our work.  Commercial service and repair work has always been our emphasis.  For us, this type of work is not an add-on to a primary residential service company.  And we work in and around Altamonte Springs all of the time.

Comparison Shop

Many other HVAC companies, as you can see from their websites, focus on residential work, or have a divided focus.   Take a look at our home andphoto pages.  Then, please, compare for yourself.  Mind you, we don’t want to lose residential work, which we are fully capable of performing.  But we truly focus on commercial work.  And doing something over and over kind of makes you better, which is the case with us, and commercial refrigeration and air conditioning work.  We simply have experience, and a lot of it, doing commercial work.

Creativity and Affordability

Commercial refrigeration and HVAC, which we perform throughout Altamonte Springs and Greater Orlando, requires clever remedies to often varied and complex equipment issues.  The more experience we gain, the more innovative we become.  We feel sure that we have encountered nearly every difficulty that happens in the commercial refrigeration and air conditioning world.  So many times we can suggest practical and effective, sometimes unique and money-saving solutions.  For example, we might replace a door hinge, or have a metal piece fabricated by a local metal fabrication shop, instead of trying to sell you new systems.  This is particularly true if the unit does not need replacement.  To help you, we might also call on brand manufacturers.  We have been there many times, so we know when this might help.  Just last month we were waiting from a call back from a display cooler manufacturer, specifically from their engineers, regarding how to replace the heat strip on one of their doors.  We are not afraid to questions to solve difficult equipment problems.  But usually we don’t need to call because we have learned from many years of experience.

You Can’t See What You Can’t See

Have you ever looked at uneven trim work in a home?  The same sort of thing happens in commercial HVAC and refrigeration, you just can’t see it.  Poor workmanship affects cooling capacity.  It’s really that simple.

Solid Work Product Comes From Solid Work EthicCommercial HVAC Ductwork Altamonte Springs

Whenever you must purchase new A/C or refrigeration systems, our prices are always reasonable.  We also care, very much, about our work product.  Work ethic matters to us.  So when we start welding, we keep the torch in our hands until the connection is unbreakable.  We put our minds to work when we configure ductwork or calculating loads.  We never put ourselves on mental cruise control.  You can also trust us to give our expert opinion regarding how many supply or return air vents you should have, and where we should put them.  We consider less obvious things like window placement and type, customer and employee locations in relation to the angle of the sun, your hood functionality, and many other things.  We seal every joint well because they all make a big difference.  These are critical to proper air temperature, especially in more complex commercial facilities.

Cutting Corners Would Be Easy, But We Do Not

Unfortunately, these are also (hidden) areas where a less scrupulous or ethical contractor could easily cut corners.  This is sad for all consumers, really, because this part of a good HVAC job is totally impossible for you to see with your own eyes.  When comparing air conditioning or refrigeration companies, you cannot easily compare anything other than the price tags.  And even those are hard to compare because you are never comparing apples to apples.  But, as with most things, there are methods to doing a worse job, usually saving time to the contractor.  You really just have to judge character, and company philosophy, for yourself.  We can just say we have never been that way and never will be.  Our well-entrenched company philosophy is that approach would cost us in the long run because our customers will feel the positive difference with our work.

We’ve Heard “Thanks!” Many Times

From our first day in business, we have made it our mission to provide the “best-of-the-best” commercial refrigeration and HVAC service.  Yet we have always kept our prices affordable and fair.  Even better, we handle each piece of equipment like it really matters.  Because it does.  We think that is the reason our phone most often rings from repeat customers.  We have received countless praise and thanks when returning customers have asked us to help them with new systems or repairs.  Very often, business owners or managers realize quickly that they may want to call us again.  So they add us to their phone contacts right away. Many talk to us like we are their allies in business, which is the way we see ourselves. Solid business relationships, and happy customers, have led to many referrals.  As a matter of fact, as of the writing of this website, when we created our list of representative customers, and gathered photos of our work, we had done virtually no advertising whatsoever!  We are actually amazed ourselves at the variety and depth of our customer list, all acquired with practically no advertising.  That only happens when you do good work, time after time, reliably, honestly, and fairly.

We Still Perform Residential Air Conditioning Work in Altamonte Springs

Although we focus on commercial, residential A/C work is much easier, so well within our capabilties.  We may eventually grow this aspect of our business.  We currently take many residential jobs and welcome new ones.  We just specialize in commercial air conditioning and refrigeration.  But our prices are so affordable that many of our commercial customers call us when they need to repair or replace their home systems.  As a matter of fact, calls to work on the homes of satisfied business owners and their employees make up a very high percentage of our residential work.

Helpful Tips for Altamonte Springs Stores, Restaurants and Commercial Establishments

Do you need refrigeration services in the middle of the summer when we are busy and you may have to wait a short time to receive service? We apologize that you should have to wait at all; we know that losing your business air conditioner or cooling systems is extremely stressful. So we everything within our power to minimize the time that you have to wait and we absolutely prioritize emergency calls. We understand that you may be losing food products or gaining unhappy customers because your restaurant or business is not maintaining proper temperature. So we always hurry to see you.  In the meantime, these are our suggestions to minimize business interruption problems:

  • Installing back-up pieces of your most highly used pieces of equipment is a good idea.
  • Close your cooler doors
  • Sounds simple, but never forget that you can buy ice. This can be useful if your ice machine breaks. Also you can use ice or dry ice (as much as you can stuff into your units) to keep your cooler or freezer at least a little bit cooler until we arrive.
  • Change your filters and keep your equipment coils cleaned, which will greatly improve their energy efficiency and also lead to fewer equipment malfunctions.  To make sure this happens, we recommend our preventive maintenance contracts.
  • In a pinch, you might want to purchase a portable air conditioner for use in your business, as a back-up plan.
