Your Comfort Specialist Since 1947.
In 1947, after completing his service in the United States Navy, 26 year old Nick Edrington Jr. was looking for a trade. Being an enterprising young man, Nick began Nick’s Refrigeration Service Inc. by following the local ice salesman and selling customers a brand new innovation: refrigerators.
Customers that could not afford the refrigerators outright received a coin slot attached to their new machines. To keep the refrigerators running, and their food cold, customers inserted coins into the boxes, which Mr. Nick would periodically stop by to empty.
Mr. Nick later went on to sell General Electric window air conditioning units and central air conditioners as they were introduced onto the market.
