I’ve used SOS several times now. Each time the experience has been seamless. The owner John is a rare breath of fresh air (no pun intended) in that he is knowledgeable and TRUSTWORTHY. SOS will continue to be my first call whenever I have HVAC issues. I would encourage others to do the same. You won’t regret it.

During this latest cold spell my grandmother’s heater was acting up. We called SOS for a second opinion, they confirmed it needed to be replaced. She had a new furnace installed not only faster than the competitor, but also cheaper! Thanks SOS!

I really couldn’t be more thankful for the knowledge, attention and friendliness from SOS. From their sales staff to service reps like Jody, I’ve learned a lot about how to maintain my heating and cooling systems. I look forward to using them when needed.

We have had a few service calls and the service we have received has been exceptional. During our last service call, Jody was friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. He quickly determined our smart thermostat kept losing connection and would be replaced. Over the summer, our AC unit went out and needed a new motor. Since we had a previous service call in the month prior, we were not charged for our weekend service call. That team also worked quickly to resolve our issue. At our old residence, we were in need of replacement after the past homeowners failed to disclose to us that the AC unit did not work. We found out when we turned it on for the first time in the summer. I really liked the financing options SOS provided. We will use the company again when our current, aging systems will need replaced in the future.

Here’s What Our Clients Say about Us

I have trusted SOS for three generations. In my recent years I have invested in residential and commercial real estate and have placed my full reliance on the people at SOS to respond quickly and professionally in sales and service and for a fair price.

- Mark Klinker
So thankful for SOS Heating and Air in Omaha, Nebraska. I awoke to ambient temperature of 52F in my house at 06:30 a.m., called SOS at 07:15 a.m. as they were highly rated on Google and located near me (75th and Blondo). I was called promptly at 07:30 by a very friendly lady who assured me that their rates were quite reasonable. Had a serviceman at my door at 09:15 who quickly got the heat back on, replaced a faulty gas valve - which he actually had in his van, and he was in and out in under an hour. Polite, knowledgeable, and highly professional. Our house is once again toasty warm. Thanks SOS!

…I would like to thank SOS Heating & Cooling for their professionalism and dedication in efforts to satisfy our clients. SOS does an outstanding job of planning, scheduling, and implementing their portion of work on our projects. We have performed many projects with SOS and have been very satisfied with their efforts. They understand the need to satisfy the owner’s requirements for the project, meet the schedule, perform in a safe manner and to the highest standards of quality.

We lost our air handler in the flood of spring 2019 and faced the 22-95 degree weather in its aftermath without heating or airconditioning. We talked to a lot of services in this business but SOS stood head and shoulders above the rest in terms of a plan to make my house liveable again – and at a fair price. My house is more comfortable than ever and my new air handler was repositioned above the flood plane so I’m ready for the next one! Really appreciated their thoughtful assessment of my situation with a plan that worked best for my home. You can trust these people….
