Meet the Owner

Hello, my name is Brad Nichols, owner of Nor Cal Mechanical Inc. I have over 30 years of experience – both residential and commercial – in the heating and air conditioning industry. I bring that experience to each and every job.

My wife and I moved to Northern California in the early 1990s to raise a family and work in an industry that I truly love. Being a part of this community is central to how I run Nor Cal. We sponsor local schools and sports teams and both of us are active volunteers in the community.

By building strong relationships with contractors and earning the trust of homeowners, our customer base has continued to grow strong.

We have been working with NorCal Mechanical for over 5 years. They support our 3 businesses and it has been a pleasure to work with them. Most recently, they supported us during the Covid-19 outbreak and demonstrated collaboration with clients. Highly recommend!

NorCal Mechanical installed a new furnace and air conditioning unit and it went very smoothly. They were professional, personable, and local. Brad Nichols was our fifth estimate appointment and he was able to explain the entire process and designed a system to perfectly fit our needs. Price was great and equipment was top notch. We are ready for any weather! I'm so glad we went with Norcal Mechanical!

Excellent first time experience! Our heating system went down in our house – NorCal Mechanical came out right away to diagnose the problem. They were on-time, professional and very knowledgeable. Best of all, they were honest and fast, taking the time to show me how the insides of the heating system works and what was causing our heat to not turn on. Pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be an easy fix and inexpensive part replacement. I will be using Norcal Mechanical from now on for any/all of my HVAC needs and will be recommending them to friends and family. Thanks for your professionalism, advice and knowledge!

I have been using Nor Cal Mechanical for years for my home in El Dorado Hills. I have had them work on , heating, a/c, installed a whole house fan and a smart thermostat (Nest). They provide exceptional service and are very professional. Brad and his team are always prompt, courteous, honest and very reasonable prices. I would recommend them to anyone for HVAC needs.

I have used Nor Cal Mechanical at my home in EDH and my employer has used them over the past 4 years on the commercial building he owns. We have referred Brad and his team to clients and business owners because they are as honest and professional as can be! Most everyone who works there has been there for many years and all give the same courteous professional service. Brad himself saved me thousands of dollars when he assessed my HVAC system in my home. Another company had estimated that I needed a whole new system and Brad was able to let me know that was not the case. Their service is reliable and they strive to make their customers completely happy. Would highly recommend them!!
