When I started Sunstate Mechanical in 1991 we had only one goal: provide great service at a fair price. Today, we are a leading provider of HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and emergency services, with offices in Phoenix and Tucson. From installing chiller systems and designing electrical systems, to drain jetting and 24/7/365 emergency services, we are here to help.
