Company History

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 ҹլ, Inc. (RSI) and Advanced Refrigeration Systems in 2016.


At ҹլ, 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.

Intelligent Dispatch

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.
