Mike Deloria

Comfort Consultant

I started in the HVAC business with Area, December 1996. I spent the first 12 years doing high end custom home installations in New Construction as well as replacement equipment installations in existing homes.

The last eight years my focus has been new technology, building science, indoor air quality and more efficient duct designs for homes. I'm always looking to push the envelope in unique designs and stretching the capabilities of new technology to better improve people’s indoor comfort and quality of life. I do not consider myself an expert in the field, but rather, well educated. The day I consider myself an expert is the day I will retire, as I will have nothing new to learn each day.

Comfort Consultant

I went to school at Apex Senior High in Apex, North Carolina. While I enjoyed my time in school I wanted to jump straight into the work force. After visiting a local job agency I was pointed in the direction of a commercial HVAC company and have been in the industry ever since.

I had been doing primarily residential HVAC when I joined the Area Heating team back in 2007. I was impressed with the quality of the work being done and the quality of the people at Area. I have never regretted my decision to work here and have learned a lot along the way. As a Comfort Consultant I am focused on providing the best service that I possibly can for the people I get to meet every day. I am excited about current and new technologies in the industry and have an extensive installation and service background that helps me better serve our clients.
