Today, Total Comfort Solutions has five franchise locations located across South Carolina and eastern Georgia. The company provides solutions to all industries with a specialization in mid- to large-sized facilities in the healthcare, industrial, technology, institutional, and office markets. The Linc Service system allows the company to focus on building long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with their clients and improve their clients’ bottom line by reducing the money they spend to own and operate their HVAC equipment. Most recently, Total Comfort Solutions location in Augusta, Georgia won Linc Service’s annual “Achieving Contractor Excellence Award” for their implementation of the franchise system and their outstanding business performance in 2016.

"By utilizing Linc Service’s consultative sales processes, we immerse ourselves in learning our clients’ businesses,” Hyneman explained. “We are committed to our clients’ success, and we strive each and every day to benefit them by keeping Total Comfort Solutions on the cutting edge.”
