A Note from Founder John Cornett

“My name is John Cornett, and I’ve always been good at fixing things.

In 1994, I decided to open an honest HVAC company, and American Mechanical was born. I’ve been in the HVAC industry for over 40 years now, and honesty, quality and fairness are still my number one priorities.

After high school, a 5-year apprenticeship, and countless trade courses, I still wanted to learn more. I went to Purdue University to get certified in teaching so that I could have apprentices of my own and earned Master certifications in every HVAC application I could think of (Plumbing, Electrical, Heating, Air Conditioning, and Gas). All the while, I was working and expanding my knowledge, expertise and managerial skills.

Once you’ve tried American Mechanical, you’ll never call anybody else for your HVAC & plumbing needs. Our mission every day is to provide professional, quality service and workmanship to our customers – and that’s a guarantee.

My employees and I know how to get the job done, and done right (the first time). Because we charge by the task and not the hour, our customers always know they’re getting an honest price and a great value.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “Each time I use American Mechanical the experience gets even better. The text message with the techs picture and background ensures I know who I’m expecting. The tech tracking link shows me where my technician is and exactly when to expect his arrival. The personal attention, explanations, and quality of service of the tech is always outstanding. Kudos for not being satisfied with just doing the same old thing and be willing to continue to improve the customer experience.” - Bruce & Cathy
  • “I want to express my appreciation and satisfaction with the follow-up work David and Randy completed today on my duct system. They were able to quickly and satisfactorily make the necessary repair and add to that, their professional and positive attitude and that makes for an upbeat and pleasant experience. Once again, it was a pleasure doing business with American Mechanical.” - Mike Barrett
  • “American Mechanical recently installed a HALO air purifier to our new system, (also installed by American Mechanical), and we are very pleased with it. Air quality is of great importance to us, especially because of allergies we have. Since the HALO was installed, the quality of air is greatly improved. I would recommend the HALO purifier and American Mechanical to anyone interested in improving the quality of the air in their homes.” - Judy M
