Meet the Ridge Air Conditioning & Heating Staff

When you need professional and ethical air conditioning and heating service



Joe Ridge



Ridge Air Conditioning and Heating was founded by Joe Ridge in 1982. He opened his business with ten years of HVAC experience behind him and a desire to give every customer top quality service. With an honest and hardworking attitude, he grew a two-man operation to a company that consists of 20 or more employees today. Most of our staff members each has more than 10 years’ experience working with Ridge Air Conditioning and Heating. 


As the years have gone by and technology in all phases of life has evolved, Ridge has been a leading company in implementing those technological changes that benefit our home and business owners. Geothermal ground source heat pumps are one of those advances that we believe in and have the knowledge and training necessary to support the technology.


From its modest inception, Ridge Air Conditioning and Heating has become one of the most respected air conditioning companies in Northwest Florida. Beginning with the tireless and dedicated effort of its owner, Joe Ridge and supported by loyal long-term employees, the company strives to be a leader in the industry.


Joe and his wife Debbie are high school sweethearts who graduated from Rutherford High School. They have three grown children and 14 grandchildren. They enjoy traveling and camping.
