A Berkeley original

The story of Aarvaks started with Jeff’s great, great Uncle, John Toivonen, a recent immigrant to Berkeley from Finland. During the building boom that followed the 1923 Berkeley Hills fire, John saw an opportunity to install the latest heating systems in residential homes. He specialized in replacing old, coal-burning systems with natural gas, a cleaner, more comfortable way to heat a home.

Just starting out, his business was not immune to the Great Depression and John worked hard to sell his services. A good natured fellow with a sense of humor, one of his favorite things to do was to walk on his hands from door to door, even up porch steps to ask for business saying aarvaks, a Finnish slang word for “guess who?”.

Our experienced technicians install, service and repair all makes and models of furnaces and air conditioners.

With an eye to the future

Since our beginning we have been a proponent of the cleanest-burning and highest efficiency heating and air conditioning equipment available. Our goal has always been to provide the best personal comfort with greater energy efficiency while reducing your homes carbon footprint and lowering your energy costs.

As a green conscious company, we strive to recycle the majority of old materials removed from job sites including metal, refrigerant, paper, cardboard, and wood. In addition, some of our service trucks run on recycled vegetable oil.

“One of the best things about Aarvaks is Jeff Geier, the owner. Every interaction with Jeff, from estimate to final fine-tuning of the heating system has been a pleasure. Installation of the heating system was done in a very professional manner and was completed on time. We love finally having central heating in our Victorian house, and wonder why we didn’t do it years ago.”
