About Gary & Rick – The Founders of Garick

Gary started his career in the heating and air conditioning trade in 1967. First as an apprentice, then graduating to journeyman service technician, and eventually service manager with one of Sacramento’s oldest and most respected firms. During that time, he also obtained a degree in mechanical technology by attending college at night.

In 1980, Gary with partner Rick Julian opened Garick (Gary & Rick) Air Conditioning Service. Their goal was to provide honest and professional home comfort maintenance, repairs, and installation for their Sacramento neighbors. Since Rick’s untimely death in 2002, Gary has been the sole owner and operator.
With over 40 years in business, Garick is proud to be one of Sacramento’s oldest HVAC firms still operating under its original local ownership. The original goal remains the same: honest and professional heating and cooling for our Sacramento neighbors.
