Benchmark Air Conditioning Is A Family Owned Bakersfield HVAC Service Company.

Benchmark Air History

Benchmark Air Conditioning, a local HVAC service company, was founded by Mike Smith. Mike has over 25 years’ experience in this business. With such depth of experience, Mike has learned that to be the best you must do more in this business than just repairs and installing new equipment. He wants his company to be known for helping customers maximize the energy efficiency of a home or commercial building. This will result in getting the most out of a heating and cooling system at the lowest cost without sacrificing comfort.

Today, Mike has a great team of qualified technicians and office personnel working at Benchmark, including his wife and son. Over the years Mike has had to keep up to date in order to maintain the exceptionally high standards at Benchmark Air Conditioning.

Fortunately, Mike believes that learning is very important not only for himself, but for the entire team at Benchmark. That is why everyone who goes out on a job is capable of handling a wide range of issues for our customers.
