When Jeremy Pratt wanted to expand his Scottsdale heating and cooling business to Rim Country, his father, Jerry Pratt, was all for it.

The longtime Rim Country resident loved the idea of a father and son business.

So Ice Cold Air opened about seven months ago. Jerry runs the new branch out of his home in Strawberry.

“We’re serving all of northern Arizona,” said Jerry, who has lived in Pine and now Strawberry for the past 40 years.

Jerry raised Jeremy and his sister in Pine. Jerry later moved to the Valley and has more than 20 years of experience in the heating and air conditioning business.

He co-owns Golden Air and opened Ice Cold Air in the Valley about eight years ago.

Jerry has 40 years of experience in the construction business. For the last three years, he’s been training in the heating and air conditioning business.

Jerry’s running the office and hires the technicians.

The key is good service, he said.

“It’s a family owned and operated business, that’s how we advertise it,” Jerry said. “You can call us anytime 24/7. Our trucks are fully stocked and our technicians fully qualified.”

Call 928-295-8264 for service or more information.
