Meet the Rudy Cools Team

Our award-winning customer service is made possible by team members who are dedicated to making sure your experience exceeds your expectations.

Unlike many HVAC companies in Charlotte our team members are NOT paid commissions, allowing them to focus on providing you with an honest assessment of your needs.


Michael Argento


Michael founded Rudy Cools because he wanted to serve people in a more honest way than what he had witnessed while working for other HVAC companies. He takes his commitment to customer satisfaction seriously, following up with EVERY customer to ensure they are happy with their experience.
