A name that has been in the High Desert since 1954: A Name You Can Trust!

Rick Thurlow, owner of Thurlow’s Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., was born and raised in the High Desert. He graduated from Victor Valley High School in 1977. While still in school, he started in the HVAC field and went on to become a journeyman installer. After several years of working for a local HVAC company, he established Thurlow’s Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. in 1983.

Rick and his wife, Tracy, have two grown children. His parents, Dick and Ginny, are Maine natives who arrived in Victorville in 1954 when military duty called for Dick’s service at George Air Force Base (currently California Logistics Airfield). Dick retired as a manager of Gas Operations for Southwest Gas Company, only then to start building swimming pools as owner of Oasis Pools for 15 years. Dick and Ginny both worked hard serving the High Desert and are now retired. They passed down to Rick a sense of pride, honesty and family values.
