About Us

I have been in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and commercial refrigeration (HVACR) Trade since 1972 since graduating from Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technical Academy at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, TX. Graduate with a 98% grade and was named Honor Graduate of my class. Valarie and I were married in 1973.

After serving out my commitment with the United Stated Air Force, using and honing my skills at McDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida we moved back to my hometown of Summerville, SC. There is truly no place like home, and Valarie fell in love with the charm and small town feel of Summerville.

From that point on, I had been employed by some of the top companies in SC usually covering an area of the state unsupervised. And, this was before cell phone and pagers. I always took pride in my work and found that I really enjoyed the industry. Then, the big idea came! Do we take a leap of faith and open our own Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Commercial Refrigeration Company?

John and Valarie MortonMy wife, Valarie & I prayed about taking this big step. And so in 1993 we excitedly opened to do business as Arctic Air. To offer qualified and experienced service, replacement and repairs to just about anything that gets hot or cold. We started the business from our home, outgrew the home office and in 1997 had our own permanent office/ warehouse built in the heart of Summerville.

We want to stop and say Thank You to all of our long time customers who in the beginning helped us grow and who are still with us today. We couldn’t have built our business without your loyalty!

My lovely wife Valarie is the brains and the beauty behind the business. She graduated in the top 5% of her high school class.  Since she has started a couple of businesses on her own before Arctic Air Inc, as well as being in upper management in the corporate world, it was and easy transition for her to run the legalities of the company as I worked the technical side.

All of us at Arctic Air Inc appreciate your time in reading this. If you need service remember we are here 7 days a week and you will always speak to a live person answering the phone, even after hours. We look forward to next 19 plus years of business while providing excellent service, building relationships and earning your trust. Our reputation is on the line, so I personally back up all work with a solid warranty and promise of quality workmanship!

Call or e-mail us today, we look forward to helping you!

Thanks again,

John Morton,  Arctic Air Inc – a Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Commercial Refrigeration Company.
