A Native Floridian, Dave Hutchins was born in Tarpon Springs. He founded Bay Area Air Conditioning, Inc. in 1975 as a one-man operation, growing to four employees by 1978 to 50 plus today.

Always in the forefront of excellence in customer service, Bay Area is one of the few in the state of Florida that requires all of their Technicians to be NATE certified. NATE-certified technicians are skilled professionals who have proven their knowledge in the HVAC industry by passing specialized NATE certification tests. Simply said, a certified NATE technician is the Best in the Business.
Over the course of three decades, Dave Hutchins, President and Founder, has built Bay Area Air into one of the leading HVAC Contractors in America. Today, Bay Area has once again topped the competitive Florida market as the leading dealership in Infinity Sales and Indoor Air Quality Products. Even in this downturn economy, when other dealers are struggling, Bay Area is reaping the rewards of satisfied and loyal customers with a steady flow of residential service and replacement systems. Nothing demonstrates the company’s long term commitment to customer service better than its ability to thrive and grow in tough times. Hutchins attributes his company’s success to the fact his customers always come first and that his co-workers are trained to handle all their air conditioning needs.
