Who We Are

True Ventilation is a family-owned business run by husband and wife team, John and Valquiria Melucci. Valquiria does a lot of the office work and she’s likely who you’ll speak with when you call to schedule an appointment. John spends most of his time out in the field serving customers. He has 20 years of industry experience and has worked on countless chimney systems over the years. He’s also built homes from start to finish, so you can bet he knows a thing or two about keeping your home beautiful, up to code, and free of hazards.

Why We Started Our Own Chimney Business

After working for other chimney companies with values and ethics that differed greatly from his, John decided he wanted to do better and be better, because his neighbors in NY deserved better. So, he and his wife started True Ventilation, with the mission of being an honest company that does the right thing, always.

What’s It Like To Work With True Ventilation?

Our promise to you is that we’ll always use quality products and provide quality services. We’re also a bit OCD when it comes to doing things right and making sure everything’s absolutely perfect, so you can rest assured the work on and in your home will be done right.

We’ll leave your home cleaner than we found it, and make sure you’re happy with the service you receive. And we’ll never tell you that you need something you really don’t.
