Heating and Air Conditioning History - MTB Mechanical

About Us

Britt Thomas & Dan Miller

MTB Mechanical is a family owned and operated business that has installed and repaired heating and cooling systems in the greater Charlotte area for more than 35 years. We have managed to earn the loyalty of our customers by providing high-quality work at reasonable prices.

We provide up-front estimates and charge by the job, rather than by the hour, which takes the guesswork out of your heating and cooling service bills. Our managers have established long-term relationships with a variety of suppliers, which means we can secure the necessary parts for a job quickly and get your system up and running in short order.

In June 2003, MTB Mechanical moved into an 18,000-square-foot building on Industrial Drive in Matthews, providing our company with ample space for an office, sheet metal shop and warehouse. Our technicians are trained both in-house and in classes offered by manufacturers and distributors, which keeps our workers up to date on the latest HVAC technology. MTB Mechanical provides service and installation to families and businesses throughout the greater Charlotte area.


In 1975, Dan Miller recognized the need for better service and professionalism in the heating and air conditioning industry and started his own business, Miller Refrigeration, offering top-notch service. He quickly added other types of work until he was providing the full spectrum of HVAC services to homes and businesses in the Charlotte area.

Dan hired an increasing number of professional technicians to join his team, and they brought invaluable knowledge and experience to the company. The business flourished as the customer base grew quickly and steadily over the years. Residents and business owners came to rely on the high level of service Dan’s company provided, and many customers referred their own family members and friends to the company.

Dan’s daughter, Jennifer Miller Thomas, knew she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps. After college, she and her husband Britt Thomas started MTB Mechanical and began serving the heating and cooling needs of the Charlotte area. The couple made the same commitment to personal attention and quality service that Jennifer saw her father provide his customers for three decades.

Shortly after Jennifer and Britt got their own business running smoothly, they talked to Dan about emerging from retirement. He agreed to join the business and brought with him 37 years of HVAC knowledge and experience.

With two generations now running the company, MTB Mechanical is able to offer both experience and youthful enthusiasm. Today the installation department is housed in the original building that provides office space, a sheet metal shop and a large warehouse. The service department operates out of the building that was acquired next door providing ample space for training, meetings and additional office space for the customer service representatives.

It’s possible a third generation may one day join the company. Jennifer and Britt have started a family, and they hope their own children will carry on the tradition of serving the heating and cooling needs of the Charlotte area with high standards for top-notch service.
