Chris Myers is the President of ACE Heating & Cooling. Born and raised in the Brandon area, he is a proud alumni of Armwood High School and graduated from Erwin Technical College in Tampa studying Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating Technology in 1998.
After several years working with some of the finest HVAC tradesman in Tampa Bay, Myers set out to build his own American Dream. He wanted to provide for his growing family, which now includes the two most important people in his life, his daughters Macie Raelynn and Cloee Knoelle.
Myers started ACE Heating & Cooling Company in 2003. The company was run out of Chris’ family home in Brandon with one goal in mind – give Tampa residents an air conditioning company they can trust and build a repeat customer base.
13 years later, Chris and his award winning AC team operate out of a 3000 square foot stand-alone facility in East Tampa servicing more than 2500 customers a year, a tribute to Chris’s hard work and commitment to his team and his customers.
Chris believes in a farmer’s mentality: building, nurturing and growing productive relationships with his customers for the long term – as opposed to hunting all the time for the big sale like many of his competitors do in the industry.
Since its inception in 2003, ACE Heating & Cooling strives to be Tampa’s most reliable air conditioning company. The mission of ACE Heating & Cooling is to be the local Air Conditioning Company of Choice in Hillsborough County. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and fairness in the local HVAC service industry.
“Our job is to diagnose the problem thoroughly and give our customers honest and reliable options to solve their problem. It is our responsibility and I take our customer’s trust very seriously”

- Buy Local Support yourself Several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.
- Support Community Groups Nonprofit organizations receive on average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses.
- Keep our Community Unique Where we shop, where we eat and have fun all of it makes our community home. Our one of a kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of this place. Our tourism businesses also benefit.
- Reduce Environmental Impact Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation, and generally set up shop in town or city centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss, and pollution.
- Create more good jobs Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally, and in our community, provide the most jobs to residents.
- Get Better Service Local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of the products they are selling and take more time to get to know customers.
- Invest In Community Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future.
- Put Your Taxes To Good Use Local businesses in town centers require comparatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services as compared to nationally owned stores entering the community.
- Buy What You Want, Not What Someone Wants You To Buy A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long term. A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based not on a national sales plan but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
- Encourage Local Prosperity A growing body of economic research shows that in an increasingly homogenized world, entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their one of a kind businesses and distinctive character.
Think local first + Buy local when you can = Being a local!
