FORT MYERS, Fla.  — Elevate Home Services, an HVAC company serving southwest Florida, has named Justin Carrol as president.

Carrol, who has a long history of home-services experience, including as the president of an Illinois-based HVAC company for more than two decades, is also a co-owner of Elevate Home Services alongside Justin Pollack and Kristin Rich. Carrol officially began serving in the role of president earlier this spring when the company launched, a press release from Elevate said.

“The name Elevate personifies what our mission is: we want to elevate lives. This includes our team members’ lives, our customers, and the surrounding community,” Carrol said. “We are already working to positively impact the community around us, and look forward to continuing to provide exemplary services to the people of southwest Florida.”

Carrol’s appointment came as Elevate Home Services launched as a new brand after two notable Florida companies — Whaley’s and Griffith Heating and Cooling — joined forces earlier this year. Team members from each brand continue to work for Elevate.

“By combining and building on the industry-leading teams of Whaley’s and Griffith, we are able to serve more people within a greater footprint. This, we believe, benefits people well beyond our Fort Myers headquarters,” said Carrol.
