Why people choose us?


Crain has been around since 1954. They know what they are doing. Their technicians are licensed and experts at what they do. They regularly attend code seminars and factory training sessions to keep up to date with all of the changes and updates in the HVAC industry.

Trustworthy and dependable.

All employees pass a background check and drug screening. When you have someone into your home for a service or installation, you have to be able to trust them. Trust them around your family and trust that the work in your home is done safely. Crain does that. I am totally at ease with them.

We support past Pritchard customers.

After the family sold the Pritchard business in 2014, many long-term Pritchard customers have not been able to get reliable service on their HVAC equipment from new ownership. However, Crain Heating and Cooling will honor any existing Pritchard service contracts or warranties issued before 2014. It's our way of trying to help our past customers who supported us for so many years.

Crain gets you rebates on HVAC equipment.

Whether its a DTE rebate on a solar panel installation, a federal or state tax credit, or a manufacturer's rebate, Crain Heating and Cooling will work closely with you to get all of the rebates that you deserve.
