Andy Atwood

President and Co-Founder

I am President of Atwood Rentals HVAC. My goal has always been to serve God and serve others. It is with this mindset that I am happy to help people obtain ownership with their HVAC needs. I was born into a Christian home and watched my dad run our family business with this same goal in mind. I worked in the accounting department of his business throughout high school and college. In 2000, I received a B.S. in Business Administration with a major in Management and a minor in Marketing from Union University. In 2008, I founded Atwood Rentals, a rent to own business in the portable building industry. As the company grew, I was made aware of the opportunity to help homeowners with their Heating and Air Conditioning needs. Our company serves all of the U.S. and thrives on leading and serving in a way that honors Christ.

I have been married for 18 years to my best friend, Angie. We are blessed with three sons and one daughter. We enjoy spending time together and are always ready for an adventure. We love traveling, spending time outdoors, boating, hunting, farming, and supporting the kids in their sports and activities. Above all, my greatest desire is to love and lead my family to know Christ and serve Him daily.

Phil McDonnell

Director of Sales

I am responsible for leading our sales teams and driving the growth of our business. I have a broad background working with the dominant brands in industries such as pest control, residential lawncare, commercial landscaping, home warranty, and industrial distribution. I also spent time with the nation's largest HVAC wholesale distributor where I had full P&L responsibility for a specific division of the company. I most recently led business development initiatives in the insurance industry with heavy emphasis on designing innovative self-funded healthcare programs, developing captive insurance companies, and implementing cost containment strategies for hospital systems. My background has enabled me to gain valuable experience in a variety of cross-functional roles including finance, sales, business development, marketing, operations, strategy and customer service. I enjoy helping companies grow more profitably by delivering value-added services to their customers.

I have been married for 21 years and have four wonderful children. I am a former deacon and active member of my church and enjoy coaching basketball and soccer. I am involved with The Cancer Kickers Soccer Club, a non-profit organization focused on helping children diagnosed with cancer. I attended the University of Memphis where I received my bachelor's and master's degrees and was a four-year member of the soccer team. I enjoy reading, traveling, coaching sports, and spending time with my family.

My favorite bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6. Please email me at phil@atwoodhvac.com

Holly Melton

Inside Sales Representative

Hi, I’m Holly Melton! I will soon become a Phillips in 2022! I have 2 doggie children, and 1 teenage cat (she the boss). I've worked in customer service since I was 16, and my most recent position prior to Atwood Rentals HVAC was as a Full-Time Assistant Store Manager at Rue21. During those five years, I discovered that I enjoy dealing with consumers and assisting them in achieving their fashion goals. I also enjoyed adding fresh styles and trends to the store's overall look. My time there came to an end, there was always a feeling I wouldn’t be there for long.

I was offered a position with Atwood Rentals HVAC, and wow, has it been a blessing to work for this organization! I've worked in a variety of roles for this organization as it has grown, but I've most recently been assigned to the Software Development Department. I assist in the development of our website's functionality. My ultimate goal is to provide a user-friendly platform for those who need help with heating and air conditioning.

I adore what our program is all about-it's giving customers a chance to get heating and air without having their credit checked, and it's also about providing HVAC dealers an opportunity to offer a no-credit alternative to their clients! I appreciate everyone who has participated in our program thus far, and I hope to continue to assist others in the future! Please email me at holly@atwoodhvac.com
