About Thomas Whitfield

Who is Thomas Whitfield?

Tom Whitfield, founder and president of Absolute Air & Power, has been in the HVAC business for more than 24 years. He first started working in the industry at age 19 as a junior mechanic. Over the next two decades, he climbed the ranks, gaining experience in all aspects of the heating and air conditioning world. His training encompassed sales, service and installations, where he learned how to see a job through from start to completion.


He has installed everything from single zone ductless units to multi-zone central air systems, from boilers to generators and everything in between, in both commercial buildings and residential homes. He prides himself on finding the cooling or heating solution when no one else can, and keeps current on the latest developments in the industry by routinely attending training seminars and testing new products. In August 2010, he decided to build his own company, which has grown steadily each year, expanding from a one-man shop to a full-fledged, thriving business. With his own company, Tom has made it a point to see to every little detail, and insists on being on-site for every installation. Only the best workmanship is acceptable for him and his technicians, and he treats every project as if it were his own home.


Thomas Whitfield and the Absolute Air team are NATE-certified, ACCA-certified and EPA-certified. He is licensed in Nassau and Suffolk counties, as well as in several individual municipalities such as the City of Long Beach, Town of Babylon, Town of Islip and Town of Southampton. Absolute Air & Power is a Rheem Top Contractor, and the technicians are also certified to work with Trane, Carrier, Lennox, Fujitsu, Burnham, Weil-Mclean, and Triangle Tube products.
