Commercial Refrigeration Dr. PhillipsOur History and Evolution

The contractor who owns Marathon Air, and who oversees every job, started his professional life working as a restaurant owner and manager.  He also sold restaurant equipment and designed entire restaurant rebuilds.  This eventually morphed into providing both commercial refrigeration and A/C repair services to all businesses, not just restaurants.

Marathon Air now provides reliable repair and replacement services to many different types of businesses, as you can see from our list of representative customers.  Unlike many of other HVACR companies, Marathon Air has provided almost exclusively commercial service since day one in this business.  In our case, commercial repair service has never been a secondary afterthought to primarily residential work.  Instead, we get 90+% of our business from commercial customers.

Creative, Expert, Affordable

Commercial air conditioning and refrigeration, which we provide throughout Dr. Phillips and surrounding areas, sometimes requires creativity and ingenuity to solve problems in the most cost-effective way.  Most of the time, we have “been there, done that,” when it comes to commercial refrigeration and HVAC difficulties.  We think this makes us different.  As an example, we might recommend that we hire a local metal fabricator to create a new metal piece, rather than buying new cooling equipment.  This can be a cheaper solution when expensive equipment breaks.  Or we might call a brand manufacturer to get their engineers to weigh in on the problem.  From our years of experience, we know when this might help you.  At the same time, when you have to purchase new A/C equipment, we price fairly, and take your work seriously.  When you must decide whether to buy new or repair, we have the experience to help with your repair or replace decision.

Service You Can Trust

We provide the highest level of commercial service.  Since we treat each piece of equipment like we own it ourselves, our customers value and trust our service.  We think this is rare for the building industry today.  Most business owners add us to their phone contacts pretty early on–as soon as they realize that they have found the rare combination of excellent service and reasonable prices.

Commercial Specialty and FocusCommercial Air Conditioning Dr. Phillips

Marathon Air has a sharp focus on commercial A/C and refrigeration work.  This is the bread and butter of our business.  We know what we are doing.  For that reason, our Dr. Phillips and surrounding area customers include stores, gas stations, restaurants, strip malls, office complexes, and churches.  We also service much larger business just outside Doctor Phillips like NASA, SouthWest Airlines, Florida Hospital, and Disney.  We are well-kept secret to many of these business owners.

We Hope You Will Shop Around First

You can tell that our focus is different if you read various AC company websites yourself.  Look at the photos, work offerings and advice.  Have they told you how to change your home filter, but not mentioned rooftop commercial units, or tips about ice machines?  This should be a clue about the level of expertise you will encounter with many other companies.  We believe that we are unique because, from the first day we opened our doors, our work has been 90+% commercial.  Our targeted commercial work has given us many years of relevant and useful experience.  We pass those benefits along to all of our customers.

Commercial AC Dr. PhillipsStrong Work Ethic = Quality Workmanship

If you need to purchase new equipment in the Dr. Phillips area, we will provide high quality workmanship.  Even though you often cannot see the finished product, we still take a lot of pride in our work.  When selling replacement systems, we think about everything that impacts cooling, like door and window locations, sunlight hot-spots, hood functioning, and many other variables.  We also consider current ductwork configuration and any needs for modification.  This includes our opinion about the number and type of return and supply air vents that we consider optimal.  These are the types of areas that aren’t cookie-cutter, yet tremendously impact whether you are hot or cold in your business.

You Cannot See Good Welding

When we start welding, we don’t stop until the connection is as solid as a rock.  Unfortunately for our customers, you simply cannot see the most important details in quality HVACR work.  In this business, you can only compare the numbers.  But those can be tricky because you are often comparing apples and oranges.  There too many different parts and brands to ever count them all, particularly when it comes to commercial HVACR equipment.  Even worse, single manufacturers offer countless systems that are worlds apart when it comes to price and value.  When looking literally through a book of equipment offered by one manufacturer, how could you compare the MR500SEER13 and the XT700SEER17?   (The reality is that most of what constitutes “good” A/C work, assuming a reasonably decent unit, is having a quality install job.)  Also, like most things in construction, there are lots of ways to cut critical corners.  We have never worked that way.  We try to be the best, every day, at every job-site.

Our Prices

Have you ever seen uneven trimwork in a home?  The same kind of thing exists in A/C work.  The problem is that you cannot see the problem areas.  But gaps and problems still affect your cooling.

We Consider Ourselves Your Business Ally

Since day one, going back to 1991, we have always tried to provide our customers with very high quality commercial A/C and refrigeration work.  This includes sales, service, repair, and installation.  Our prices are affordable and fair.  We know that all of our work is important to each our customers.  They are trying to make a living in business, just like we are.  So they need a company they can trust.  We think of ourselves like your business partner or employee, no kidding.  We really care about providing good service.

We think our passion for doing a good job is why most of our calls every day come from former customers.  They thank us often.  And we are grateful.  We don’t take those relationships for granted.  Our commitment to quality has led to many valued relationships with longtime commercial customers.  These positive business relationship have turned into many referrals over the years.  As a matter of fact, our list of representative customers came into life with virtually no advertising.

Helpful Tips for Stores, Offices, Restaurants and Any Commercial Establishments in Dr. Phillips

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 if you have to wait at all; we know that having problems with your business air conditioner or cooling systems is extremely stressful. So we do everything within our power to minimize the time that you have to wait. We understand that you may be losing products or gaining unhappy customers because your restaurant or business is not cool enough. So we always rush to see you and we absolutely prioritize emergency calls.  In the meantime, these are our suggestions to minimize business interruption problems:

  • Although expensive, purchasing back-up pieces of your most used pieces of equipment is a smart business move.
  • Close your cooler doors when not using them.
  • Sounds simple, but never forget that you can buy ice. This can be useful if your ice maker 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.
