About Us

Jeff Arent and James (Red) Renner


Riccar Heating and Air Conditioning is a locally owned group of seasoned professionals offering the
ultimate in heating and air conditioning, sales, service, and installation. Established in 1972 by Jeff Arent,
with the addition of James (Red) Renner as a full partner in 1976, Riccar has experienced steady growth
in the HVAC field.


In 1989, Riccar had outgrown their original building and moved to a larger facility at 2387 Station
Parkway in Andover, Minnesota where they remain today. This location allowed Riccar to have a
showroom to display the latest equipment, a larger warehouse to maintain adequate stock, and a metal
fabrication shop to handle custom work.


Riccar employees are like family. Many have made Riccar their “home” for more than 25 years! At
Riccar we are proud of where we live and work and will do everything possible to make your experience
with us a pleasant one.


Though ownership has changed over the past decade, the core beliefs of the original founders have
remained the same. Serve the community with honesty and integrity and provide our customers with
quality materials installed by skilled craftsman.
