Middle Tennessee Appliance Service and Parts

Tony Simmons, owner of Middle Tennessee Appliance Service and Parts, repairs all household appliances, including central heating and cooling and has recently relocated in an effort to become more accessible and efficient.
Simmons decided to get a degree after working in factories that kept closing down and moving away.
“I worked in three factories,” said Simmons. “They left me.
I didn’t leave them. I couldn’t trust the factories for security in a job.
I needed job security.”
Simmons earned a degree in environmental control technology from Tennessee Technology Center of Crossville.
His education included heating, cooling ventilation and refrigeration.
Six years ago, Simmons was contacted by Sears to work on heating units.
“They wanted me to pick up their overload on heating repair,” said Simmons, “and one thing led to another. And I began repairing Sears appliances as a subcontractor.”
Simmons worked for himself, but was traveling to 14 cities.
The traveling was keeping him away from his family, so he decided to do his “own thing.” He started Middle Tennessee Appliance Service and Parts, which serves White, Putnam and DeKalb counties.
Simmons is HVAC certified and licensed to handle refrigerants.
He is also insured. Simmons works on all major brands and sells parts. He has a full stock of frequently requested parts and can order any needed part overnight.
Simmons’ wife Stephanie is a registered nurse at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. He has three children. Michaela attends Tennessee Tech, Casey is a cheerleader at White County High School, and Joah is on the cross country team at White County High School.
The Simmons family attends Pleasant Ridge Free Will Baptist Church.
Middle Tennessee Appliance Service and Parts is at 309 N. Spring St. and can be contacted at 836-2944.
Simmons can be reached anytime
to schedule service calls.
Office hours are 7-11 a.m., and he makes house calls the remainder of the day. Saturday business hours are 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
