At O'Boys Plumbing, Heating & Air, we are committed to providing exceptional service to our valued customers

After more than 25 years of working for other companies, we embarked on a family ski trip to Lutsen, which became a turning point in our lives. Inspired by our children’s interest in the HVAC field, we decided to establish a company that they could be a part of someday. This decision fueled our determination to deliver unparalleled service, going above and beyond to exceed customer expectations.

Our HVAC Journey:

From High School to Industry Experts

At O'Boys Plumbing, Heating & Air, we have come a long way from our humble beginnings. Our story began when Rob Orstad, our founder, started working as an HVAC installer while still in high school. Over the years, he dedicated himself to honing his skills and gaining experience in the industry. Through hard work and determination, Rob progressed from an apprentice to a journeyman, and eventually held positions as an install manager and operations manager. His journey in the HVAC field has been nothing short of inspiring.

When you choose O'Boys Plumbing, Heating & Air, you are choosing a family-owned business that is deeply passionate about HVAC. Our journey as a family began with Rob’s undeniable passion for the industry. From the early years of our relationship, I witnessed Rob’s excitement as he pointed out homes where he had installed HVAC systems during our drives together. It was clear that this was more than just a job for him; it was a calling.

The Inspiration

Behind the O'Boys Plumbing, Heating & Air Name

The story behind the O'Boys Plumbing, Heating & Air’s name is a testament to our history and values. In the early days of Rob’s HVAC career, he often collaborated with a friend on side jobs for friends and family.

They playfully referred to themselves as the “OH boys,” derived from their last name initials. When the time came to establish our own company, we found it challenging to settle on a name. However, we kept returning to the sentiment behind the “OH boys” concept and realized that incorporating our last name, Orstad would be a perfect representation of our family values.

The idea of using our boys’ images as our logo clicked, and O'Boys Plumbing, Heating & Air was born. To honor our daughter, we embraced her favorite color, blue, as the primary color for our truck designs and overall color scheme.
