A proven history of providing successful customer-driven solutions
A member of the CoolSys family of companies, CoolSys is a market-leader in the design, installation, repair & maintenance, optimization and sustainability of mission critical refrigeration & HVAC systems. Headquartered in Anaheim, California, our field-based service and installation experts serve the daily needs of customers across much of the nation. We are proud to enjoy long standing relationships with many of today’s leading grocery retailers as well as market-leaders in many other industries.
Our employees have deep industry knowledge and strong technical skills enabling us to provide the right technical resources to solve our customers’ specific challenges the first time.
Unlike other service providers, at CoolSys we take a holistic approach to helping our customers manage the Total Cost of Ownership of their mission-critical refrigeration & HVAC systems. Our company was founded with energy optimization as a primary driver of our work, and this approach remains a key part of our culture today.
Our offerings cover every stage of a system’s life-cycle, including:
New system design & installation
Repair & maintenance
Optimization of energy use and system performance
Our teams of experts are trained and experienced in designing, installing, repairing, maintaining and optimizing all manufacturers’ products. We lead the industry in the use of technology and mobile tools to support our field teams and ensure the service they provide is efficient, effective and consistent. Our goal is to establish long term partnerships that improve sustainability and our customers’ bottom line.
Due to the complex nature of refrigeration & HVAC systems and the current trends toward natural refrigerant options, we continually invest in engineering and technical training to ensure that we provide our customers with expertise that is second to none.
At CoolSys, we understand that providing the best technical expertise to our customers is only part of the equation. We also know that delivering services efficiently, consistently and timely is critical to our customers’ business. It is this understanding that drives our relentless focus on operational excellence to make sure that your overall experience doing business with us is as positive, consistent and efficient as possible.
In 1998, three premier refrigeration & HVAC service and construction companies (Scott Polar, Kimmel Motz and GHV) were purchased by Edison International to form Edison Source. With a combined 89 years of experience, the new company served commercial refrigeration & HVAC customers in 11 western states. Being founded by a leading energy company, energy utilization and optimization were primary drivers of Source since the beginning. It was this focus on energy utilization that established Source’s market-leading presence in the retail grocery industry where up to 60% of energy consumption is related to the refrigeration and HVAC systems. This energy optimization focus remains a cornerstone of its culture today.
In 2001, two former Edison executives, Brad Howard and Billy Patterson, led a management buyout of Edison Source and formed Source. Source entered the Texas market through three acquisitions in 2006. In 2011, Source expanded into the southeast United States through organic growth in Florida and the acquisition of DHR Mechanical in Georgia. Source expanded their presence in Florida in a significant way with the acquisition of Fournier Refrigeration & HVAC in 2013 and strengthened its market position in Texas in 2014 with the acquisition of Service Refrigeration Company (SRC). Source increased its market share in northern California by acquiring Refrigeration Solutions, Inc. (RSI) and Advanced Refrigeration Systems in 2016.
OUR TECHNICIANS KNOW TECHNOLOGY
At CoolSys, technology plays a critical role in providing the best possible experience to our customers. That’s why we continually invest in the latest technology to enhance the customer experience and help us become a better business partner to you!
Each of our 700+ field service technicians is equipped with an iPhone loaded with our proprietary state-of-the-art apps. Through this device, the technician is dispatched with customer-specific instructions, can open and close work orders, manage purchase orders and on-truck inventory, and record extensive details for every service call, including photos and data on the time spent and work performed on each customer asset.
Our Service and Construction Managers are equipped with iPads, giving them instant access to timely, relevant, and detailed information while in the field.
Easy-to-read dashboard reports — fed from the information gathered through the technicians’ iPhones — allow them to proactively address our customers’ needs, spotting and reacting to negative events before they become serious and costly issues.
To ensure we send the right technician to the right place at the right time, we’ve invested in a customized “intelligent dispatch system”.
When a customer requests service, this system identifies the technicians whose skills best match the customer’s specific problem — taking into account their current locations and workload — and automatically dispatches the most suitable person.
