Who We Are

In the summer of 1945, Charlotte businessman F.H. Ross, Sr. and Carrier Corporation engineer C.N. Witmer formed one of the Charlotte area’s first heating and air conditioning companies. Mr. Ross and Mr. Witmer had a simple, shared goal: to expertly install high quality products made by a leading manufacturer. And so began the exemplary HVAC contractor that is an industry leader today.

Since its acquisition by Ralph W. Phillips, the air conditioning company has been family-operated for three generations. Through each generation, Ross & Witmer has been committed to providing high-quality and efficient heating, cooling, and mechanical service to homes and businesses. The company’s dedication to excellence has made it one of the most respectful and successful HVAC contractors in the Charlotte and Hendersonville/Asheville areas.

Residential HVAC Services

As a homeowner, it’s important that you work with an air conditioning company you can trust. There are many heating and cooling system options on today’s market. Without professional guidance, you might choose the right fit for your family’s needs. A system that is too large for your home is as inefficient as a system that is too small. Your friendly, professional contractor can take care of all installation tasks and can help you to select a new home heating or cooling system, using the appropriate load calculations. By using the right methods you can be sure your technician is installing the most energy-efficient system.

Of course, regular maintenance and service appointments are key to keeping your HVAC system in good running order. Schedule maintenance and tune-up appointments at least twice a year; once before cooling season and once before heating season. Doing so will help you to protect the value of your investment and help you stay comfortable in your own home.

Business owners have very different needs when it comes to choosing HVAC systems. You want to ensure that your employees and clients are comfortable but you are also concerned about energy costs. Perhaps you need to find a new, efficient system that can be installed without making significant alterations to your current building. Your contractor will provide you with the best advice possible taking all of your concerns and needs into consideration. Of course, you’ll need to schedule regular maintenance appointments to protect the value of your investment.

It’s important that you work with a licensed HVAC dealer or contractor when choosing a new commercial air conditioning or heating system. We’re happy to assist you with installation, maintenance, repair, and replacement questions, concerns or issues. 

Serving Charlotte Since 1945

It has been a long time since the summer of 1945, when Charlotte businessman F.H. Ross, Sr. and Carrier Corporation engineer C.N. Witmer formed one of the Charlotte area’s first heating and air conditioning companies. Mr. Ross and Mr. Witmer had a simple, shared goal: to expertly install high quality heating and cooling products made by a leading manufacturer. They chose Carrier and so began the 76 year story of a company that is an exemplary HVAC contractor and industry leader today.

Although Mr. Ross and Mr. Witmer are no longer involved, their legacy has continued since the company’s acquisition by Ralph W. Phillips in the sixties. Ross and Witmer has been family-operated for three generations since. Through each generation, Ross & Witmer has been committed to providing high-quality and efficient heating, cooling, and mechanical service to homes and businesses in the Charlotte area.

Today the company is proud to have grown under the leadership of Clay Phillips who took over from his father, Danny Phillips, several years ago. Ross and Witmer has expanded its service offerings to include Electrical, Insulation, and Home Performance Services, including clean and sealed crawlspaces and attics. We believe that our customers want a complete solution provider for their home or business and these additional services have allowed us to meet these growing demands. We have also expanded throughout the region with the recent acquisitions of two well-respected businesses – Nicholson Company in the Hendersonville/Asheville area and Melton Heating and Cooling in Rock Hill, SC. We proudly welcome these companies and their communities to the Ross and Witmer family.

With lessons from the past and a vision for the future, Ross and Witmer is dedicated to continued improvement in quality and the customer experience. We thank all of our customers for making these past 76 years possible and we are excited about serving you for many years to come.
