Serving The Hillsborough County Area
Velocity Air conditioning is proud to serve the entire Hillsborough County area. Hillsborough County, which takes its name from Wills Hill, British Secretary of State to the Colonies from 1768-1772, was first mapped and explored by the Spanish in the early 16th century. Between 1559 and 1819, the area now called Florida was under the rule of four nations: Spain, France, Great Britain and the United States. The United States purchased Florida from Spain in 1821 for $5 million.
On Jan. 25, 1834, the U.S. Legislative Council for the Territory of Florida approved an act organizing Hillsborough as Florida’s 19th county. In 1845, Florida was granted statehood.
At that time, Hillsborough County was a sprawling area that included what is now Pinellas, Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee and Highlands Counties, most of Glades County, and part of Lee County. Despite its size, Hillsborough’s population was only 836, not including soldiers or Native Americans.
When the first Commissioners met in 1846, the topics were taxes, transportation, a new courthouse and jail, and downtown development. The County tax raised $148.69 that year. Commissioners were paid $2 per day while in session.
In 1846, Commissioners approved plans for a new courthouse, since the original building, a small log cabin, was burned during the Second Seminole War. The project was turned over to Capt. James McKay in 1847, and he completed a two-story house, 20 feet by 45 feet, at a cost of $1,358. Commissioners later paid McKay an extra $10 for additional work.
In 1892, a red brick courthouse with a silver dome was built, occupying one square block in downtown Tampa. The building was designed by J.A. Wood, who also designed the Tampa Bay Hotel. Torn down in 1953, this distinctive courthouse is preserved in the County seal. The next courthouse was built in 1952, and is still used as an administrative building for the court system. The current main courthouse, the George E. Edgecomb Courthouse, opened in 2004, was built at the corner of Pierce Street and Twiggs Street. The current County government administration building, called County Center, opened in 1994. County Center was renamed the Frederick B. Karl County Center in 2000, in honor of the County Administrator who was instrumental in the purchase of the building.

"I called Velocity Air requesting a quote for duct cleaning on a Friday afternoon around 4:30pm. Brittany was my representative. She asked some very good questions and determined that we qualified for a in home second opinion. Our A/C was not functioning properly and I was going off of a previous diagnosis from another company. Bill was at my house the following day. He was amazing."
"We had trouble and called a different company. Charged more then they said and didn't fix. I took a change and called you guys. Setting up an appointment was easy. Brittany in office was pleasant. And what a refreshing change I got with Shawn. He was TERRIFIC. He explained things and answered questions. Fixed our unit for less then I paid the first one. So happy to meet a considerate gentleman. Thank you for employing this young man, he does your company proud. He is our go to guy from now on. :) Take Care, Linda"
"They were amazing they came out to our house at 10 at night to fix our air conditioning so that we didn't even have to go one evening without air conditioning and that is so important in Florida. They were quick and so polite and did not act annoyed by the time of day that we called them they were so prompt and professional and affordable I really felt like I could rely on them to be honest about what was wrong and it was a simple fix and they didn't try to sell us a bunch of other stuff that we didn't need and I will always use this company."
"Velocity Air Conditioning Technician Brad was the best! I’ve been having issues with my son’s A/C unit for months. After several attempts from other companies to resolve the problem, voila there comes Velocity Air right on time and ready to tackle my son’s problem. Brad is a definite asset to the company. He was genuinely concerned for my son’s dilemma and it is greatly appreciated. Velocity Air is 5 star and number one in our book. Kudos to Brad for a job well done!!!"
"Called 4 companies on Sunday to come repair my AC. 2 never called me back. 1 tried to charge me weekend rates. No way I would pay that. It's ridiculous.
Fourth call was to Velocity air. They sent out a tech within 30mins. Tech new his stuff and solved my issue within 15mins. Honest, professional, knowledgeable, and didn't try to charge me ridiculous prices. Very happy with my service and will use them again on the future."
"Our air conditioner was not working properly I set up for the 3rd of the month but I end up calling them back and they squeezed me and the following day now I have cold air thanks to the time the air conditioning guy check through everything made sure everything was working properly my air conditioning unit was too full on air conditioner freon and he emptied it out and filled it properly now I have cold AC I would recommend this company to anyone that likes excellent friendly service and thorough inspection."
"When I called Velocity air they were able to come that day, and where able to install a new A/C unit by the end of the week for a great price! The technicians and the office where very helpful and made sure I was informed ever step of the way. I definitely recommend them!"
"Air went out late Friday. Sent an email on Velocity's website, and they called me at 7:30 Saturday morning, and said they could come out by 11. Got here right after, and Erik, the service technician, looked the unit over, and found a blown fuse(of some type). He replaced the fuse, and the unit started working very well. They charged us less than $175. They could have easily charged me $700, and I probably would have had that done. Great job. I will always recommend Velocity Air to my friends and neighbors. Thanks for being so honest. And such quick service."
"I cannot say enough about these guys, best AC service I have ever received by a long shot. Placed service call late and the service man Shawn came right over, got my system back up and running, awesome service. Had them install my Trane system a year ago, excellent workmanship. Totally recommend!"
"Tyler and his crew came out and took care of my AC unit that wasn't working, came out quickly, got it running and running very well. "
"6 stars! Why use anyone else? Incredible from the initial phone call until job completion. A/C died in our rental house while we were out of town and they got on it within an hour, troubleshot and fixed it in another hour. Happy renters make happy owners. There's a lot of A/C companies to choose from but I've not had one that comes close to their friendliness and professionalism. They got me up and running in minimal time. Thanks Velocity!"
"Very impressed with Velocity Air Conditioning! I called at 9am and Tyler was here by 10am (he had a 40 minute drive in early morning traffic to my home). Tyler was very thorough and helpful. He had the parts on his truck and my unit fixed in less than 30 minutes. I will be enrolling in Velocity Air Conditioning's maintenance plan and look forward to doing business with Velocity for all my service needs! Thanks so much Tyler!"
