About Us

Serving san diego county for over 25 years

Not your average AC & Heating company

Ryan Refrigeration Heating Air and Solar was started by Ryan Sharrott in the early 1990’s with the goal of providing HVAC, Refrigeration, and Solar services to San Diego without the high pressures sales, poor customer service, and dishonesty often found in the industry.  Ryan’s formula was simple:

  • Do not “sell” the customer; instead take the time to educate them and answer all their questions.
  • Hire people that are passionate about their trade and using their skills to serve others. 
  • Never compensate a technician with commission. Ryan believes that commission-based compensation promotes dishonesty rather than an honest technical evaluation of a system.
  • Develop a company culture base on our R.I.S.E Values: Respect, Integrity, Service, and Excellence

Our History

Imagine walking into a Costco sized warehouse full of Dryer’s Ice Cream as a 5 year old child. This was Ryan’s first experience with refrigeration. His dad was the Chief Refrigeration Engineer for the ice cream company and it was an exciting day when he got to join him at work. At a very young age, Ryan was fascinated with the ice cold warehouse and how it was possible. Of course the mountains of ice cream may have added to the fascination.

From this point on, Ryan was destined to follow in his father’s footsteps. He began working in the HVAC/R field right out of high school. At age 22, he started Ryan Refrigeration, Heating and Air and now has the joy of working with his wife, Marisela, and son, Noah. Ryan is proud to say that his company is built on a foundation of family values, exceptional customer service, transparency and integrity.
