About GMC

GMC Air Conditioning Services was created to provide Residential, Commercial, and Industrial customers with a "one stop shop" for all of their indoor comfort, indoor air quality, HVAC service and maintenance needs.

     Our founder, John B Flathe, has spent his entire career in the HVAC field. Upon graduating from Vanderbilt University with a Mechanical Engineering degree, John secured Engineering positions, first with Lennox Industries and then York.

     Being a true entrepreneur, John decided to branch out on his own and formed Georgia Metal Corporation. For over 30 years Georgia Metal Corporation has installed HVAC systems in some of the most prestigious Retail Centers, Office Complexes, Condominiums, and Residences in South Florida and Georgia. Our extensive list of clients include Publix Supermarkets, Kohl's Department Stores, Staples Office Supplies, Wallgreens, Best Buy and Whole Foods Market, just to name a few.

     While much was accomplished over the years, John still had one goal; to build a HVAC Service and Maintenance Company that would delight customers in the same fashion that Georgia Metal Corporation has for over 30 years. To achieve this goal GMC Air Conditioning Services was created.

     The 1st step was to find a leader for the new entity. John hired Skip Farinhas, an industry veteran, as General Manager. Skip is a University of Miami graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. Skip also has spent his entire career in the HVAC Industry, beginning his career in his family's HVAC contracting business, then co-owning and operating a wholesale HVAC distribution company. Skip also spent several years with York as the Sales Manager for Florida. As General Manager of GMC Air Conditioning Services, Skip has built an organization that is focused on exceeding your expectations each and every time!

Your Air Duct System

From our website, we want you to understand how the air ducts in your home affect your comfort, health, utility costs, and the environment.

Since the energy crisis of the 1970’s , scientists, researchers, industry, and government agencies have been investigating ways to save energy, and make products “green”. Great strides have been made in making appliances such as Air Conditioning units more energy efficient, but Forced Air Distribution Systems “Air Duct Systems” have been mostly overlooked up until recently. 

Nationwide Air Duct System testing has been conducted over the last decade, and here is what you should know:
  • Air Duct Leaks waste 15% of ALL power generated in Florida.
  • Air Duct Leaks increase cooling costs by an average of 23%.
  • Air Duct Leaks increase heating costs by an average of 37%.
  • The average air duct leak in Florida is 348 CFM50.
  • The average reduction in Residential cooling costs, by properly sealing air ducts is 17%.

Because of these compelling facts, we believe all of our customers should have their Air Duct system tested and properly sealed. Call today in order to schedule an appointment. You will save money & be more comfortable!

Preventative Maintenance Agreements

You have heard of your neighbors and coworkers having service maintenance plans, but wondered what the benefit would be to you. Preventative maintenance plans are like insurance. You take out a policy that says that your appliances may, and likely will, break down at some point. When they do, you don't want to be blindsided by a bill. Instead of a last-minute bill, plan throughout the year to maintain your items and keep them in great condition for their lifetimes.

Our preventative maintenance agreement includes:
1. Fewer expensive repairs and inconvenient breakdowns.
Professional maintenance results in fewer and less costly repairs.
2. Quick response to your call for service.
As a Peak Performance customer, you are given priority status over other callers.
3. Discounted repairs.
You will receive a discount of 15% on BOTH parts and labor, should your system require any repairs.
4. Never be charged overtime rates again!
As one of our preferred customers, you will not be charged overtime, should a repair be necessary after normal working hours.
5. 24 Hour service available 7 days a week.
Your comfort is our top priority, and we will be there when you need us.
6. Extended Equipment Life.
It is a proven fact that regularly scheduled professional maintenance will enhance the lifetime of your HVAC equipment.
7. Lower utility costs.
Our Peak Performance Tune-Up’s keeps your equipment running efficiently, which will reduce operating costs, and save you money each & every month.
8. Improved Dehumidification.
Equipment with dirty coils or filters can lose as much as 40% of their capacity, which can lead to a lack of proper dehumidification
9. Improved Health.
A clean system is a healthy system. Professional maintenance will keep your system clean.
10 Improved Safety.
As a part of our Peak Performance Tune-Up, we check all factory safety controls and switches, as well as check for frayed and loose wires, which greatly reduces the chance of an electrical short or fire.
