About Capital City Heating and Cooling



Founded in 2016 by Chris Barrett, Capital City Heating and Cooling has become an industry leader in the Richmond, VA area. 

Chris' path to becoming a small business owner did not happen over night. After his time in the Marine Corps, he entered the HVAC industry as a mechanic. After only two years, he got his journeyman's license and then his master's license after only three years. Since those early days in the industry, Chris had the goal of owning his own business. 

Working his way up the ranks, Chris has experience in every aspect of the HVAC industry. He has been a General Manager of several companies in Virginia over the years, while raising his three kids along with his loving wife. 

In 2015, Chris decided that it was time to finally start his own company. In January of 2016, Chris started Capital City Heating and Cooling and brought on one other person to assist him. In the first year, the company exceeded all of Chris' expectations. Going from a one man show to nearly 25 employees, Capital City has proven to be a trustworthy company. A good amount of the company's business comes from referrals, which means people know that Chris and the company can be trusted.
