The Guthrie Way

It can be challenging to choose the right heating and air conditioning contractor to service your home or business. That is until now. Put your trust in Guthrie & Sons Heating, Cooling & Solar, San Diego’s choice for a dependable and qualified contractor with a focus in customer service. At Guthrie, we have decades of experience under our belt and a commitment to our customers – delivering 5-star service with no upsells, ever.

Family-owned and operated.

Guthrie & Sons Heating, Cooling & Solar was founded by the first generation, Wes Guthrie. Built on old-school morals and family values, Wes believed in treating each customer like family and always doing right by the customer. The company has since been passed down to the second generation – Matt and Ben Guthrie. Continuing their father’s legacy, Matt and Ben continue to serve the community of San Diego county and beyond with professionalism and top-notch customer service.

Clients do not come first. Employees come first.

“Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”- quote by Richard Branson. Your employees are your most valuable asset, even above customers. At Guthrie, one of our company values is always taking care of our employees. Treating our employees with utmost value, care, and respect allows them to provide the same amount of care and service to our customers.


As a two-generation company, we know a thing or two about treating our customers the right way. From the initial touchpoint with our in-house customer support team, to our field technicians servicing your home, we promise to deliver the 5-star service and professionalism you deserve. 

Transparent and honest pricing.

At Guthrie & Sons, we offer transparent and honest pricing. That means we’ll provide you with a detailed quote before starting any work. We often get asked: Why do you not waive a service call with a repair? The truth is: with our transparent pricing, we refuse to hide this fee into your repair quote. All of our quotes are detailed and itemized for full transparency.

No upsells, ever.

When you need assistance with your heating or air system, our certified technicians will come to your home and provide an evaluation of your system. If your system could use a repair that will enhance the safety and/or performance, we will provide a recommendation. Otherwise, if your system is performing optimally, we’ll let you know! We will not try to sell you on anything you don’t need. That’s the Guthrie promise.

High-quality equipment that won't break the bank.

We offer affordable, high-efficiency, top-of-the-line heating and cooling products to keep your home comfortable year-round. The best part? Our HVAC systems won’t break the bank. Our estimates for new installations are complimentary. Schedule an appointment with us to find an option that fits your home and your budget. 

Flexible financing options.

While we offer heating and cooling products to fit any budget, we offer flexible financing options should you need it.

Rick was very helpful in giving my Tenant and me another tutorial on operating the Thermostat for the Heat Pump. This Tutorial provided some simple yet essential information as to the basics of the thermostat's operating options.Rick was also helpful in advising me that the return vent filter should be changed every six months, as well as getting the measurements of 14" X 24" for the correct size of the filters to purchase.He was courteous, used his shoe covers consistently, and suggested I consider purchasing Guthrie and Sons' Maintenance and Service Plan.I would appreciate details of the cost and benefits of the Plan.My overall message is one of appreciation for such prompt response to my call, next day scheduling, and expert service delivered by rick.KUDOS TO ALL OF YOU AT GUTHRIE AND SONS, and congratulations on your growth and new home for the business.Gene Fischer

Very responsive to my service request. Dave diagnosed the issue quickly and corrected the situation so that the failure will be less likely to happen again. He explained the additional repairs which were necessary. Guthrie ordered the part and quoted the job the following day.

I have been using Guthrie & Sons Heating and Air since I moved to San Diego over 10 years ago now . When I later relocated to the far north county area I was happy they served customers that far away. They’re always on time, professional and reasonable on price. What else could anybody ask for?
