We can follow the rest and give you a simple straight forward, underachieving heating or air conditioning system that "just works."  However, we think thats boring and a waste of your hard earned money.  We design each syetem from the ground up based around your home or place of business.  We take everything into consideration, from your window size, total square footage, insulation factors, age, direction of the sun at any given time of the day and so on, then produce a complete, one of a kind, comfort solution proposal specific to your home or business.

Who are we?


We are 4th Generation of mechanical contractors dating back to 1937.  Learning from our father, grandfather, and great grandfather, we carry on the very proud tradition of serving the Southern Tier of New York.  We look forward to serving for many years to come.

Customer Response & Quotes



"Drakes fixed the furnace!  Seriously though, those guys really busted their butts to fix that thing.  Hats off to Scott and Bill over at Drake Heating and Air."

                                                                         - Mr. Mike Bahantka     Elmira, New York


"Bill -- I want to send a personal thank you to you and the crew.  I personally spoke with Jeremy on the phone and he even helped out and tried to level the base during the install.  In my opinion, this is excellent service and what dealing locally is all about... going the extra mile.  I plan to tell everyone about my experience and that Drake Heating & Air Conditioning is the right choice for HVAC in the area."
