Serving The Polk County Area
Velocity Air is proud to serve the entire Polk County area. Since the late 20th century, growth in Polk County has been driven by its proximity to both the Tampa and Orlando metropolitan areas along the Interstate 4 corridor. Recent growth has been heaviest in Lakeland (closest to Tampa) and the Northeast areas near Haines City (nearest to Orlando). From 1990 to 2000, unincorporated areas grew 25%, while incorporated areas grew only 11%. In addition to cottage communities that have developed for commuters, Haines City has suburban sprawl into unincorporated areas. Despite the impressive growth rate, the unemployment rate of Polk has typically been higher than that of the entire state. For example, in August 2010, the county had an unemployment rate of 13.4%, compared to 11.7% for the entire state.
During the 2004 Atlantic hurricane season, three hurricanes, Charley, Frances and Jeanne all tracked over Polk County, intersecting in a triangle that includes the city of Bartow.
Winter Haven was best known as the home of the Cypress Gardens theme park, which operated from 1936 to September 23, 2009. Legoland Florida has since been built on the site of former Cypress Gardens, and has preserved the botanical garden section. Winter Haven was the location of the first Publix supermarket circa 1930; today Publix’s corporate offices are located in Lakeland. Country musician Gram Parsons was from a wealthy family in Winter Haven.
In 2018 the Lakeland City Commission voted to move the Confederate monument, installed in 1910 at Munn Park in Lakeland, to Veterans Memorial Park. This was the location of the original African-American community of Moorehead, which was first settled in 1883. Owners were bought out in 1967 by eminent domain for county civic development of a conference center and the later Veterans Memorial Park. Some members of the black community have objected to the Confederate monument being relocated to the land of what had been their historic community in Lakeland, saying it would be more appropriate to be located in the cemetery with numerous Confederate graves.

"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!"
