Canella Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. was founded in May 1990 in Bethlehem, NC by Craig Canella. Curtis Canella, Craig’ brother, joined him just a few years later, and our company has grown into the Canella family that our customers know us as.

  • We Are Here to Help With Anything, Not Just HVAC!
  • We Provide Industry-Leading Promotional Offerings
  • You’ll Get Our One-Year 100% Satisfaction Guarantee in Writing

We pride ourselves on always keeping our customers’ best interests in mind, going above and beyond to help you find the right person for the job, no matter what your home service needs are.

Canella Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is more than “just an HVAC company.” We are industry leaders that our community has grown to depend on. Get every ounce of comfort you deserve when you choose Canella.


Dedicated to Helping You

When the Canella brothers first began serving Hickory and the surrounding area in 1990, they saw slow growth until they became fully committed to new principles of customer service that you can always depend on:

  • Offering a wider range of HVAC services to provide convenience and peace of mind.
  • Sticking around as long as needed to get the job done to your satisfaction.
  • Providing free estimates to best assess your needs (and to get to know you!).
  • Granting 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on repairs and maintenance, for up to a year after service.
  • Assigning a technician to your home to ensure that your comfort and efficiency needs are being met.
  • Helping our customers save money with industry-leading promotional strategies.
  • Ensuring next-day equipment installation on select brands in the spring and fall, and next-week installation in the peak summer and winter months.

Air conditioning, heating, and indoor air quality are the things we happen to be best at, but we’ll always find a way to help. Even if we can’t help, we’ll find someone who can.

Humanitarian Efforts

To this day, Craig and Curtis remain strong believers in the idea that great services should always start with the community. Through organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Canella Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. has expanded on that mission to serve the community by joining various humanitarian affiliations. You can always rest assured that our hearts are in the right place.

  • CVCC Construction Careers Academy Sponsor

Without our Canella family across all of Hickory, NC, and the surrounding areas, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We’re grateful to our community for showing their support over the years through various awards.
