What Our Customers Are Saying

We had a great experience with Skelton’s!

We had a great experience with Skelton’s! Our dog damaged the wiring on our A/C condenser, and it stopped working while the highs were still in the 80’s. Skelton’s came out the next day and got our condenser working again. Would recommend them and use them again!

Very Professional and Responsive

Skelton’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is very professional and responsive. I was able to request service via an online service request form one evening and was called promptly the next morning. I was subsequently able to have service performed within 2 hours. When your AC is not working this is like finding gold! I highly recommend them.
