JD and Terri remain committed to the company and are still highly involved in the business’s day-to-day operations. When they are not working at the company’s headquarters on Naples’ 2000 J and C Boulevard, you can find them enjoying Naples paradise on the water or you can find JD in his garage working on classic cars. JD and Terri’s daughter Brooke has grown up with Cool Zone and has also played a role in shaping the business into what it is today. As hard-working, industrious individuals who continuously strive to make their business the best it can be, they look forward to another 28 plus years of business together.

Trusted Company

Cool Zone, Inc. is a company one can trust to have their mechanical work completed. The work was scheduled and performed exactly as stated without any delays or complications. The installers maintained my residence very neat and clean during the entire time of the new A/C installation. After the installation was completed they guided me through the thermostat settings and initial setup. They also assisted me with acquiring the Lennox App for my smart phone and instructed me on how to use this app. Cool Zone is a company I can truly recommend to anyone needing mechanical work.


Always Honest

Cool Zone has always been honest with me. I have used them for 15 years for all my properties. They have never over sold me on any product. Always up front with me choosing the best system for my needs.


Confidence in Cool Zone

We recently bought a 27 year old house that had less than consistent performance from the 3 central air conditioner units. Cool Zone came in and provided us with state of the art Lenox units and completely replaced the old deteriorating duct work. Our home is now much more comfortable and we have confidence in the performance of the equipment and the service provided by Cool Zone.


Many Thanks

Since I was a Dealer / Salesperson / Manager in a different industry I know what matters. And the Owner of Cool Zone does what few people do these days. “Build a great organization”. One of Cool Zones inside staff mentioned how wonderful the company was she worked for- well it just ran up hill from there. Sales, service call, installation, paperwork, filing warranty and rebates= All better than any purchase I have made in Years “61 years in fact”. I just wish I worked for a company like Cool Zone. Many Thanks – See you soon!


Like a Good Bottle of Wine

We have been using Cool Zone now for a number of years, and feel they get better with time, bit like a good bottle of wine. The knowledge, service, product knowledge is excellent and would recommend them to anyone.

Would Recommend

Shaun Silverwood, the salesperson who bid the job for a complete replacement of an existing system was very professional, and the installers were courteous and efficient. Would recommend Cool Zone to others.


So Happy

We are so happy we went with CoolZone. Our A/C stopped working and they fit us into their busy schedule right away. Their pricing was fair, their staff was great and the job was well done. We are very pleased.


Exceeded Expectations

Cool Zone Inc recently installed two new Lennox high efficiency AC units in our new home. They were extremely knowledgeable, professional and responsive to our needs. Before, during and after the install, the level of service far exceeded any of our expectations.


Dedicated Company & Staff

I used Cool Zone a couple months ago, and I am so glad I did! From when I first spoke with the office staff, to when the Service Tech came out to my house, I was overwhelmed by the amount of care, knowledge, consideration, and dedication this company puts into not only the work they perform, but their Company and Staff as well. I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience with Cool Zone and I look forward to using them in the future!


So Professional

I recently had service on my Lennox air conditioner bought from Cool Zone. They were so professional and handled all the repairs in a timely manner. The service crew was so polite and knowledgeable. A very positive experience!!!
