About CH Mechanical

Indy HVAC, Plumbing & Refrigeration

CH Mechanical was founded on Christian principles and American ideals. Treating customers with honesty and integrity throughout every project phase, we work hard to earn your trust—and your repeat business. And, while our number-one goal is to quickly restore your comfort and productivity, we don’t just fix problems. We build relationships.

Our company was built upon the merger of two successful companies owned by Dan Canter and Charles Holden. As colleagues with similar values and long-term goals, Dan and Charles decided to combine expertise and resources to offer customers a complete range of mechanical services.

Our Expertise

CH Mechanical technicians are personable, skilled, and dependable. Our team holds industry-leading certifications that equip them to service all brands and models, and they undergo routine training in the latest repair and installation techniques. Providing client-focused service and fair pricing, it is our goal to become a lifetime maintenance partner for your home or business.

Our Business Philosophy

We do not use aggressive sales tactics. Instead, our technicians treat you like family and take an upfront, transparent approach to service. Delivering efficient, cost-effective solutions for your HVAC, plumbing, and mechanical problems, we never pressure you into upgrades or equipment you don’t need.

Our Hassle-Free Guarantee

We promise that your technician will provide you with a detailed repair estimate before discussing system replacement. Once you have all of the information you need, you can make an educated decision about your equipment investment. THE BOTTOM LINE: There is no pressure to buy new equipment when a repair is the wise choice for your budget.
