Who We Are

Ahoy! Cooling & Heating was founded in 2010 by its leader and owner, Adam Washburn. Since then, we’ve opened up an office in Temple Terrace and rallied a crew of technicians and office employees to our staff. We have a fleet of Ford service trucks, and our office is likely the most decorated out of all the air conditioning companies in Tampa. But aside from that, we maintain the same commitment to our customers, the commitment upon which we were founded. We are known for providing the best air conditioning and heating services here in Tampa. From AC repair and heating repair to complete HVAC system installation and air quality services – we do it all!

Recently, we rebranded our company from Air Express to Ahoy! Cooling & Heating to better reflect our personality. We’re Florida’s trusted crew of heating and cooling technicians ready for anything. We take serving our customers seriously, but that doesn’t stop us from having lots of fun doing it! Whether you’re a loyal customer with us from the start or a brand new ‘shipmate’ of our ever-expanding and loyal customer base, we’re proud to serve you and the rest of our fellow neighbors here in Florida.

We believe in the power of great work, and we always make our customers feel special. For example, many large Tampa AC companies talk about how quickly they’re able to provide estimates. Instead, we pride ourselves on our commitment to detail. If you schedule an estimate for air conditioning system replacement (which is free, by the way), your comfort advisor will spend the time necessary to do a heat-load calculation and a complete overview of your system. They’ll go over pricing options as well as financing if you’re interested. Beyond that, they’ll spend time getting to know you and your needs. We really value your business and truly want all of our customers to feel like their part of the Ahoy! Cooling & Heating family.

What We Promise

We promise to always be transparent with you as our customer. If you’re deciding between air conditioning repair and AC replacement, we promise to give you an honest answer about which option is best. Beyond this, we offer up-front, flat-rate pricing every time.

This means that we always discuss pricing before we perform the necessary repairs, so there will never be any surprises after the work is done. It also means that we don’t charge by the hour, so you can feel confident that you’re getting a standardized price.

We believe in helping our customers save money, both on your initial investment in your new air conditioner and on your energy bills. We also promise to deliver on the guarantees that support our entire business model. These include our Two Year Test Drive Guarantee, which means that if you’re not 100% satisfied with your new Tampa AC system after two years, we’ll reimburse you! Our guarantees demonstrate not only our commitment to customer satisfaction but also the confidence we have in our work.

What Makes Us Different

There are tons of air conditioning companies in Tampa. But how many are willing to brave a storm for you? You have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting the right Tampa AC company for your air conditioning repair or replacement project. So why choose us? As we’ve mentioned, we prioritize our customers, making them feel like first mate every time we’re called on. We’ll leave your home in better shape than we found it. A clean ship is a quality one!

We also offer peace-of-mind guarantees and flat-rate pricing, so you know you’re getting a good deal. We’re backed by over 400 5-star reviews on Google, Angi’s List, and Home Advisor.

Beyond this, we are committed to emerging technology within the field of air conditioning and heating. Inverter AC systems and smart AC systems can help you save quite a bit of money on your energy bills each month— think 70%! Many high-efficiency systems also qualify for TECO rebates, which means money back in your pocket post-installation. Our commitment to high-tech heating and cooling systems is why we’re known as The World’s Smartest Technicians!

Why We Are The Best Technicians To Trust

We don’t just believe in high-tech AC systems for our customers. We also use top-of-the-line tools, which make us more effective and efficient on the job. We use tools from Fieldpiece, which allow us to diagnose heating and cooling issues faster and with more accuracy than old-school gauges. We use software to perform heat-load calculations, which determine the correct-sized air conditioner for you and your family.

Whether you’re interested in a conventional AC system, a Zoned Comfort AC system, or a smart AC system, Ahoy! Cooling & Heating is always ready to sail your way!
