About Us

Honest, Technically Capable, Reliable Service...

Dunnellon Air & Heat is family owned and operated by Rick & Elizabeth Chryst, fully licensed (CAC035472) and insured, and vested in the Dunnellon and surrounding communities in Marion, Citurs and Levy Counties. We are members of the Dunnellon chamber of Commerce and are proud to participate in all related rebate and tax credit programs.

Our goal is to give honest, qualified reliable service at a fair price. Our company was built door to door in the beginning, enhanced by community involvement & born out of a trip here to visit a friend that was supposed to be nothing more than a vacation. After falling in love with the town and people and discovering a serious need for qualified customer oriented service, we packed up and moved. The rest is history....

My background In the residential and commercial Air conditioning industry dates back to 1972. With my father as a mentor, all my trade school and college engineering experience has allowed me the privilege of a practical, well rounded, hands on approach - one I can pass on to you while evaluating your needs. Although dad has crossed over, I still feel him next to me shaking his head in disgust if a dishonest thought even crosses my mind. What a privilege it is to have had him as an example, a father and a mentor.

We are Rheem dealers and service all brands of equipment. Through the years, with my company in South Florida and here, we have tested and sold most brands, but just keep coming back to Rheem. Their reliability, local access to parts and supplies, along with stellar technical support for us, leaves us totally sold on their product line. We believe in what we sell. This past summer I put a new Rheem high efficiency system in my home in Rainbow Lakes Estates.

Our motto: "Where Quality and Price Meet!" is the foundation of our business, bringing you honest, technically capable and reliable service. We hope to hear from you!
