About Us


C.L. Carter Heating & Air Conditioning Inc is a trustworthy family business that knows how important reliability and comfort are to you. Calvin and Ellen Carter founded the company in 1968. They started their business from their garage in Virginia Beach, and then moved to a small shop off Pennsylvania Avenue in Virginia Beach where they stayed until 1987. After years of growth, they built a new office, warehouse, and sheet metal shop in the Greenbrier area of Chesapeake, where they are currently located. Their daughter, Laurie Carter Bleh, joined the business soon after and currently serves as Vice President. Today, C.L. Carter Heating & Air Conditioning prides itself on building lasting customer relationships, forming the trustworthy reputation we uphold today.
